Looking For A Honda NSX For Sale? Read The Complete Review
Before buying a Honda NSX for sale, it is essential to learn something of the car to make a better decision. The overall Honda NSX review from the experts and automobile devotees are positive. You just have to be sure whether the car fits your intended requirements.
The first generation Honda NSX began in 1990 and ended in 2005. At that time, the Honda NSX was the world’s first mass-manufactured car featuring an all-aluminium body. The first generation provided its consumers with a convenient room for 2 adults, a reasonable cargo space, a compliant ride, otherworldly performance along with an exotic design. To continue the success the first generation, Honda started to produce the second generation from 2016 and still continues until today. The newborn Honda NSX is a hybrid car and has a better fuel economy compared to its predecessors. It still has the look of a supercar, but it doesn’t contain the exotic interior design. Some interior parts of the second generation look quite cheap, which are not what we expected in an expensive car.

From the first look, you may see that the Honda NSX has some points like an Audi R8 in terms of styling. But see in detail you will find out the NSX owns its distinctive design, with more angular lines which must incorporate all the vents and scoops necessary for no fewer than 10 different radiators.

The latest models received a smarter gloss-black finish which is applied to the mesh in the front and rear bumpers and the chrome finish of the upper front grille surround now color-matched to the bodywork.
Instead of using gullwing, swan or other avian trickery doors, the NSX just uses standard doors. When you get into the car, you will see there is plenty of space for 02 adults with comfortable seats which are designed to hold you tightly when the car starts speeding up. In general, the interior of the car looks pretty stylish and modern but the biggest problem is with some of the materials used. Some of the parts such as door handles, paddle shifts and dynamic mode selector are made of plastic that look quite cheap.

In terms of visibility, the NSX is doing so well. Surely it is not fair if you compare the NSX’s visibility with that of a family hatchback, but the NSX’s good door mirrors make spotting traffic to the side easy and forward visibility is quite decent. Additionally, the rear window is big enough to help you see clearly what is following behind. The car is also equipped with a standard rear-view camera so it makes the job of reverse parking become easier.
Now, let’s take a look at the infotainment of the NSX. The car is fitted with a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with integrated navigation as standard feature and is hooked up to an ELS studio 9-speaker stereo. Compared to other rivals, this system seems to be out of date and the menu setup is unintuitive. Moreover, it is too hard to make precise adjustments due to its unwieldy touch-sensitive volume slider and its lack of redundant buttons.
So from our point of view, it would be better if Honda replaces some plastic materials with more luxury materials like metal, wood and leather. Besides, Honda also need to upgrade the infotainment system to make it more modern like that of most rivals on the market nowadays.
The NSX’s trunk is located behind the engine and it is quite tiny compared to other everyday supercar. The trunk offers enough space for just a small suitcase, no more. So if you travel to somewhere on the weekend and need to bring some stuffs for the trip, the NSX will definitely not fit your demand.

Engine And Performance
While latest Honda NSX will definitely fit your need for speed, it can’t overcome some strong competitors like the McLaren 570S and the Audi R8. The car still has the ability to snap off lightning-quick acceleration times and can speed up from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.1 seconds. However, its electric-only Quiet Mode offers its driver something that its competitors don’t have: discretion. In recent models, the combination of a hybrid-electric powertrain with a twin-turbocharged 3.5L v-6 and three electric motors produce 573 HP in total. One electric motor works with the 9-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and the V-6 as a team to power the rear wheels. The other two electric motors run separately to navigate the front wheels, successfully giving the car All-wheel-drive.
In Track and Sport Plus modes, the electric-power-steering system dials in more weight. The steering is responsive and the car runs smartly to the slightest of driver inputs. In Sport and Quiet modes, the steering is accurate and direct but light to the touch.
All models in second generation NSX are hybrid cars - that are more efficient in busy city traffic than their gasoline-only competitors. The car is rated for 21 MPG city and 22 MPG highway.
