The legendary NSX, touted as a supercar that’s easy to live with on a daily basis, is reborn for 2017 with a new hybrid powertrain. Don’t confuse this low-slung car with a hyper-miler—it has serious performance chops, though it can’t quite hang with similarly priced non-hybrids from McLaren and Porsche.



Overview

The legendary NSX, touted as a supercar that’s easy to live with on a daily basis, is reborn for 2017 with a new hybrid powertrain. Don’t confuse this low-slung car with a hyper-miler—it has serious performance chops, though it can’t quite hang with similarly priced non-hybrids from McLaren and Porsche. The twin-turbo V-6 sings when pushed hard, and it can be shut off to allow the NSX to tiptoe on electric power alone. The cabin is comfortable for two, but a dearth of storage space counters Acura’s daily-driver claim.

What's New for 2017?

To say that the second-generation NSX shares nothing with the first generation, production of which ended in 2005, would be an understatement. From its carbon-fiber and aluminum-intensive construction to its all-wheel-drive hybrid powertrain, the NSX is completely reimagined for 2017. Despite being modernized, the NSX draws inspiration from the original with its performance, easygoing nature, and excellent outward visibility.

Pricing

Original MSRP: Base: $156,940

Engine, Transmission, and Performance

The NSX’s hybrid-electric powertrain combines a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6 with three electric motors for a total of 573 hp and 476 lb-ft of torque. The V-6, the nine-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, and one of the electric motors work as a team to power the rear wheels. The other two electric motors operate independently to drive the front wheels, effectively making the NSX all-wheel drive. With acceleration from zero to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds, the NSX is far from slow, but it’s not as quick as the non-hybrid competition. Razor-sharp handling is expected from a supercar, and the NSX delivers, while adding a more compliant ride quality than some of its rivals. Adaptive dampers and adjustable electric power steering give it a variety of driving modes to fit a range of situations. In Quiet and Sport modes, the steering is direct and accurate but light to the touch, which makes the NSX feel maneuverable on a day-to-day basis.
