Acura has unveiled the central 2020 Acura NSX motor sport car with the new Indy Yellow Pearl, a tribute to the color of the previous general NSX Spa Yellow. This color was used between 1997 and 2003. The new color is a $ 1000 option in the 2020 models.
The 2020 Acura NSX is considered the daily supercar and is certainly comfortable and intuitive enough to be used by anyone as a daily driver. However, the cabin does not offer the premium feel and luxurious comfort one would expect of an Acura, let alone one that is destined to compete with the best in England and Germany. Our test car was equipped with optional leather and synthetic suede seats, synthetic suede inner roof and carbon fiber padded steering wheel. The bright red leather attracted the youngest among our employees, but some found it squeaky and youthful. While the seats are comfortable, we would prefer more support for the thighs, and enthusiastic drivers will probably also want more lateral reinforcement. For something marketed as the daily supercar, the interior storage cabinets of the 2020 Acura NSX are not particularly expensive. Your trunk is directly behind the engine, which can be problematic for transporting your Häagen Daz home. We also managed to put only one of our handbags in the small trunk.
A 7.0-inch touch-screen infotainment system with integrated navigation is standard and connected to an ELS Studio 9-speaker stereo. The touchscreen system, like the other interior parts of Acuras and Hondas, comes with the same complaints we have about them. The system interface already seems to be outdated, and we find that the menu setting is not intuitive. The lack of redundant keys and the touch-sensitive volume control, which makes precise adjustments difficult, add complexity. The lack of driver assistance features and the lack of data on crash testing can raise safety concerns for consumers. Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration nor the Highway Safety Insurance Institute have crash tested the 2020 Acura NSX. A comprehensive standard airbag system provides an acceptable level of protection.
A glimpse of the 500-horsepower beast that lives here is protected by a radically shaped cover while the unit’s low-sunk position is in full-screen mode. Perforated steel grids reduce weight and increase airflow. The grids are shaped to reflect the cover lines. They are coated with shiny, black powder to improve the look. All the aesthetic dichotomies that make the 2020 Acura NSX engine cover so attractive have been chosen for their utility: high heat resistance and stiffness. Carbon fiber extends the aesthetics of the Acura NSX 2020 racetrack to the engine deck. The exposed carbon fiber fabric provides a deeper structural layer, even when the weight is reduced.
While the standard 2020 Acura NSX starts at $ 157,500 and is currently the most expensive new car built in the US, it’s only a matter of time before it’s being dethroned by the $ 200,000 Mercedes Benz Maybach GLS.
