The 2021 Acura NSX line-up is expected to offer a Roadster version of the car which will most probably be a drop-top. Apart from that, there are not many changes that will be done to the standard 2021 model. It is anticipated to kickstart around the same price as the current model i.e. $160,000 and offer the same packages as the current model. Acura is also looking forward to launch a plug-in hybrid version of the NSX which shall be much more powerful. It may offer a V6 twin-turbo engine alongside a plug-hybrid-electric powertrain which will be much more powerful and quicker than the gasoline engine.

If you are looking for a sports car that can set a lap record on the track while also carry you comfortably to and fro from your office daily, well your choices are quite limited. Honda seems to have an answer for this problem with the Acura NSX Coupe which is known for offering blistering performance and advanced tech that too at a lucrative price. Today, the NXS faces stiff competition from the best-sellers in the segment like the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 and the Porsche 911 Turbo. Here’s our take on the 2021 Acura NSX Coupe that’s soon going to be in a dealership near you very soon, starting early 2021.

2021 Acura NSX Maintenance, Reliability and Warranty

Acura, being the luxury vehicle division of Japanese automaker Honda is considered quite a reliable and cost-effective brand. Hence, the 2021 Acura NSX Coupe, is no different and offers bullet-proof reliability especially when it comes to the mechanicals. Having its origin in Japan, the NSX is all about offering high-performance while also be a value for money car. J.D. Power is yet to rate any model of the Acura NSX Coupe but with only 2 recalls since its inceptions, it is safe to say that the NSX has proved to be quite a quality automobile.

Reliability and Ownership Costs

As the Acura NSX is designed to take quite a lot of beating on the track, the reliability has taken a center stage. Even though the car is laden with sophisticated technology, it is not known to breakdown so often. Being the first Japanese sports car, Honda has invested a lot into the NSX platform to compete with its European and American rivals. Even though the NSX is yet to be rated by J.D. Power, its other cars like the TLX and the ILX have scored well in the reliability and quality surveys. The repairs cost of the NSX also remains cheaper than its European and American counterparts.

On average, the 2020 Acura NSX Coupe Sedan on average cost about $158,090. The people from Montana, New Hampshire, Oregon, Atlanta, and Delaware enjoy the lowest prices as they have an exemption from the sales taxes.

Acura NSX is known for its Japanese reliability and a cheaper cost to maintain compared to other rivals. According to the NHSTA website, the car currently has zero customer complaints but two recalls for the 2018 model. The recalls are regarding crossover pipe couplers, brake light fuse blowing and the brake lights not functioning which cannot be considered very serious. However, the 2020 model has zero recalls which means that Acura has improved on its reliability and worked on the issues. Even though Acura does not offer complimentary scheduled maintenance, repairs are usually infrequent and not particularly serious or costly. 

In terms of the ownership costs, on an average, you will have to shell out nearly $26,120 in 5 years when you buy a brand new Acura NSX Coupe. This is on the lower side especially when you compare it with some of Acura’s other rivals.

Warranty

Acura covers the 2020 NSX with a four-year/50,000-mile basic warranty and a six-year/70,000-mile powertrain warranty. Considering the segment, the warranty is quite at par with the segment and you can even opt for an extended warranty at an additional cost. Acura does live up to its reputation of being one of the most reliable brands in the industry, owing to great warranty figures and roadside assistance packages. Acura offers a 24-hour road service available in the United States valid during the 3-Year and for unlimited miles. You also have an option to extend this service if you want.

Criteria

Period

Limited warranty

4 years/ 50,000 miles; whichever is earlier

Powertrain warranty

6 years/ 70,000 miles; whichever is earlier

24-hour roadside assistance

3 years/ Unlimited miles

If we consider the rivals, then the Acura offers warranty coverage that is at par with its rivals. However, due to the ongoing Pandemic in the country, many carmakers have extended their warranty without additional costs. For example, the Porshe 911 turbo now gets 3 months added to its warranty which is automatically activated at no additional cost. Acura has not announced any such extension. Acura’s 6-year warranty for the powertrain and a limited warranty cover for 4 years or 50,000 miles (whichever comes first) for the NSX can be extended to a maximum of 8 years. 

Miles Per Dollar

2021 Acura NSX’s annual running cost should remain around 10,100 USD, which means the car will run one mile for ever $2.64. This is pretty much acceptable considering that the Acura NSX is a sports car.

2021 Acura NSX Buying Advice

We will recommend to get the carbon fiber package with the Acura NSX to enhance the appearance as well as performance. Apart from that, we do not recommend investing in any other package that Acura offers as they do not lead to any improvement in the user experience. Its features pack include dual-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, ambient lighting, semi-aniline leather upholstery, heated seats, and genuine leather-wrapped steering wheel.

As mentioned before JD Power has not yet rated the Acura NSX of any model year. However, being based on quite a reliable platform from Honda, the NSX is quite dependable. car It offers top-notch quality materials and parts which ensure that the car remains a cutting edge machine while being truly reliable. 

Is buying a used car Acura NSX Coupe a good idea?

The Acura NSX Coupe retains its value well but is not the best when it comes to value retention unlike some of its other rivals. For the first year, the Acura NSX tends to lose between 17% to 19% of its value in the first year which comes out to be about $27114. Other cars such as the Porsche 911 Turbo do not depreciate as much as Acura. However, the Corvette ZR1 follows almost the same path when it comes to depreciation.

According to the depreciation value, the 2018 model years are the best ones to look out for. The total fitness of the Acura NSX Coupe is 12 years, and the 2018 version gives it around 10 more years of perfect usability. 

2021 Acura NSX Engine and Performance

The 2021 Acura NSX is expected to get the same engine as the current model which means that it will be a V6 motor. This motor currently is a 3.5-liter twin-turbo unit capable of producing a whopping 572 horsepower and 476 lb-ft of torque. Currently, the engine comes mated to a buttery smooth 9-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission which feels quite sporty and hassle-free. All the power gets sent to the rear wheel but there is an electric motor as well which manages the front wheels. Hence it is the dual electric motor and its battery pack which turn the NSX into an all-wheel-drive performance car.

2021 Acura NSX 3.5L Engine

The engine is powered enough for anything you throw at it and overtaking any car over the highway is easy and even delightful. Over on to the tracks, the gearbox and the engine combination makes sure you have adequate power at all times. The car feels the most lively while revving through the top range of the rev counter and it is quite capable of pushing you into the seats. The Roadster version expected to be introduced in 2021 will be much more powerful and offer a different engine.

The Corvette ZR1’s engine output is nothing short of earthshattering and also offers the maximum power to price ratio.The Acura NSX takes the second spot in terms of output but it costs $278 per horsepower while the Porsche 911 Turbo costs $299 per HP which is quite high in this comparison.

2021 Acura NSX Coupe Acceleration And Braking Performance

All the fancy gizmos and technology enable the Acura NSX to sprint from 0-60 mph in just 2.7 seconds! Its superior gearbox helps the Acura gain a solid start and offers aggressive downshift. At 3,878 pounds, the NSX is not light machine but the 573 horsepower makes sure that all the mass can be lugged at a lightning speed. If you continue to floor the throttle for a longer period of time the top speed of 191 mph does not take long to flash over the diver’s information display. In term so braking all cars take nearly 100ft to stop from 60mph but it’s the Corvette ZR1 that outruns the Acura NSX and the Porsche 911 Turbo. The NSX consumes the most distance while stopping from 60MPH due to its smallest brake rotors in this comparison.

Acura NXS's 0-60 mph time of 2.7 seconds bests the Corvette and the Porsche alike. The Acura proves that more power does not always mean better acceleration. However the rest of the two cars gain over a quarter mile and manage to record a better timing than the Acura NSX. With the plug-in hybrid version, we expect the NSX to regain the top spot even when it comes to the quarter-mile.

2021 Acura NSX Fuel Economy

The Acura NSX manages to balances power and efficiency quite well and offers the second-best fuel economy figures. With its 3.5 liter V6 it offers one of the best-in-class fuel efficiency, EPA estimated mileage of 21 MPG in mixed driving conditions. However it offers the smallest fuel tank capacity of 15.6-gallon with its rivals offering a bigger unit. What stands out is the fact that the NSX provides unbeatable fuel efficiency within the city which is due to the hybrid setup it provides. Acura has tuned its motor quite well to offer frugality as well as performance which keeps its overall running cost on the lower side.

Looking at the rivals, it’s just the Porsche 911 turbo that manages to rival the Acura NSX in terms of fuel efficiency and rang on offer. The Corvette ZR1, while being the most powerful car here, offers the worst fuel economy and is aimed more towards the performance side. 

2021 Acura NSX Interior

The interior space of the 2021 Acura NSX Coupe shall remain more or less the same just like the overall car. However, that is no bad new as the cabin of the current model is quite a silent and comfortable place to be in. Acura has carried over many elements and part from the mainstream Honda and Acura car which leads to the cabin feeling a bit generic. However, in order to increase the premium quotient, Acura has wrapped almost everything on the inside in leather and top-notch materials. The fit and finish is also quite desirable but the overall appeal of the cabin still remains a bit generic.

2021 Acura NSX Coupe front seats.

The cabin space is quite useable and the NSX offers a roomy cabin with ample legroom and headroom even for taller passengers. Even while being from the Honda stable you would not find any loose fit and finish or wide panel gaps. However, the trunk just offers 4.4 cubic feet of luggage space which is quite less for any car standards. On the inside the car offers leather upholstery, 4-way seats, big digital driver’s display and speedo along with a 7.0-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system. Overall, the cabin of the Acura does no make you feel special but also does not disappoint when it comes to usability or an upmarket feel.

The Corvette ZR 1 offers trunk space of 15 cu.ft. cubic feet which is commodious, and is far more than both its other rivals. The Porsche 911 turbo also offers the same trunk space as the Acura which is also disappointing. However, in terms of fit and finish and use of materials it is the best in this comparison

Infotainment System

The 2020 Acura NSX Coupe offers a 7.0-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system which might sound a tad bit small for this segment. That system includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, as well as navigation, Bluetooth, HD radio, and standard FM. It also offers an ELS audio system that offers quality sound and bass. The interface remains quite intuitive and the infotainment is feels responsive and fluid to use. We expect the 2021 Acura NSX to offer a bigger touchscreen but nothing has been made official yet.

The current Acura NSX looks nothing short of drop-dead gorgeous and the same shall continue with its 2021 model. From its looks it is not hard to perceive that the car is all about speed, handling and high-performance. The NSX strikes a superb balance between the looks of a sports car and a supercar. It looks rather distinct with its sleek headlights as well as a sharp-looking bumper at the front. From the rear, the rectangular taillights give the an imposing look while the spoiler looks quite sporty. When viewed from the side, the sleek review mirrors and the air ducts assure the onlooker that it is a car focused on razor-sharp handling and performance. All the exterior elements come together to offer an aerodynamics as well as a sharp look.

The NSX also sits quite low off the ground and offers the poorest ground clearance. The Corvette ZR1 offers the best road presence overall.

2021 Acura NSX Safety

The Acura NSX has not been tested by NHTSA and IIHS yet and it is likely that the car will never get tested. The NSX includes advanced safety features such as blind-spot monitors, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking. It comes with a defined chassis which is capable of protecting its occupants in case of multiple rollovers. Some of the other notable safety features include TPMS with location and pressure indicators, Front, Side, Driver’s Knee, Side Curtain Airbags, Corner and Backup Sensors, Driver and Passenger Side Seatbelt Reminder and Seat Belt Pre-Tensioners.

2021 Acura NSX Competition

2021 Acura NSX Coupe Vs Corvette ZR1

There is no doubt that the Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 quite a serious performance car. It offers a whopping amount of horsepower which not of its rivals can match. It also offers an a comfortable and a roomy cabin which feels properly luxurious. However, its fit finish and quality of materials cannot still match its European counterparts. In comparison to the NSX the ZR1 feels better built but lacks when it comes to sporty handling and performance that the NSX can offer.

2021 Corvette ZR1 Coupe

2021 Acura NSX Coupe Vs Porsche 911 Turbo

The Porsche 911 Turbo is quite a popular car in the sports car category and it is not difficult to see why. It offers a level of sophistication that no other car in this comparison can rival. It’s built and quality of material cannot be rivaled and the 911 Turbo also offers a host of advanced gadgets. However, when it comes to space on the inside, it lacks behind its rivals and also the additional packages make it quite an expensive car. In comparison, the Acura NSX offers better performance and value for money.

2021 Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe

 

2021 Acura NSX Final Verdict

The Acura NSX is quite a focused performance car, but while being a sports car it does not come with the bunch of problems that most sports cars do. It is a car you can take to the track as well as your office every day. Not just that, the NSX offers quite a value for your money. Couple that along with the brand reliability of Honda behind it, the NSX is a no brainer if you want a value for money sports car. However, it lacks in terms of the special feeling inside the cabin and trunk space. The 2021 model is expected to offer a Roadster version which shall make the NSX line-up even more exciting. Hence, we strongly recommend waiting for the newer model before you put down your money on this car

The performance of the engine along with the electric motor is flawless. The electric motor not only help in getting a fablous off the line initial torque but also helps in getting a good amount of fuel economy, no matter if that is the least thing to bother when you buy this specific car. Driving down the highway and you can reach triple digit speeds in under few seconds which is sometimes scary. This is a kind of sports car you can daily easily.

Imagine sitting in a car that can zip through the quarter mile line clocking at a speed of 124-ish miles an hour and counting. Well choices were limited when supercars under 200 larges was the question. Either trusted R8 which has lost the charm due to a number of R8's seen on the road or the most talked and improved NSX from Acura. Not the kind of coupe to leave you dazzled at first glance and takes a while. The only thing it? slow at. Took it for a spin and I could actually taste the amount of good work they have put it. There are of course a few things that need to be taken care of but let? keep that story for another day. For now, Acura needs some serious admiration for the kind of performance NSX ends up with. An honest review from a not so experienced and love super cars kind of guy who is always amazed at the kind of launch it takes and different driving modes. If you want sheer performance and don? care about anything else, NSX takes care of it. If it? the peaceful drive you?e up for, silent mode of NSX is there. If its the hug turns and instant throttle response mixed with dubstep, guess what, NSX has got you covered. And when the time comes to stop on a dime, slam the brakes and carbon ceramic rotors work their magic out with a wham. In short, Acura NSX is a clap back to all the brickbats for previous models.

Not the kind of coupe to leave you dazzled at first glance and takes a while. The only thing it’s slow at. Took it for a spin and I could actually taste the amount of good work they have put it. There are of course a few things that need to be taken care of but let’s keep that story for another day. For now, Acura needs some serious admiration for the kind of performance NSX ends up with. An honest review from a not so experienced and love super cars kind of guy who is always amazed at the kind of launch it takes and different driving modes. If you want sheer performance and don’t care about anything else, NSX takes care of it. If it’s the peaceful drive you’re up for, silent mode of NSX is there. If its the hug turns and instant throttle response mixed with dubstep, guess what, NSX has got you covered. And when the time comes to stop on a dime, slam the brakes and carbon ceramic rotors work their magic out with a wham. In short, Acura NSX is a clap back to all the brickbats for previous models.

Acura NSX the name is enough

The performance of the engine along with the electric motor is flawless. The electric motor not only help in getting a fablous off the line initial torque but also helps in getting a good amount of fuel economy, no matter if that is the least thing to bother when you buy this specific car. Driving down the highway and you can reach triple digit speeds in under few seconds which is sometimes scary....

Earns the badge to be called a supercar

Imagine sitting in a car that can zip through the quarter mile line clocking at a speed of 124-ish miles an hour and counting.

A character like no other

There are people who buy hybrids for better fuel economy and then there are people like me who buy them for power. Yes, power. Acura made sure that people like me don’t feel left out and they came up with NSX and this car is a riot. It skids, has a top speed of over 190 miles, and goes in corners with confidence and comes out sliding like a top dog
