2017 Honda Acura NSX – The Honda Acura NSX was meant to deliver an intuitive and immediate dynamic experience, exceptional handling, and ultra-powerful yet easily controlled brakes. Working in a seamless synergy, these features were to revolutionize the supercar performance by offering drivers the at-the-limit dynamic capabilities in every type of driving environment. Want to be kept abreast with the latest Honda Acura NSX news? Then read on to get the most comprehensive updates on its release date, price, and interior/exterior changes.
Just like its predecessor, we love how the new model offers a driver-centered cockpit and sharp handling. So for 2017, highlights to be expected include great exterior visibility, strong fuel economy and strong acceleration, and easily accessible handling for both experienced and novice drivers. Well, with a twelve-year hiatus, it might be natural to wonder: What exactly has Acura been working on for more than a decade? Well, it’s a no-brainer fact that the new model has been built to offer the ultimate experience to anyone – novice or experienced – with an exceptional performance.
To start off with, the new Honda Acura NSX 2017 is still Acura’s flagship car only this time it’s been engineered to rival the world’s best. The new model is much more complex machine that boasts of a trio of electric motors, a twin-turbo V6, and an all-wheel drive system unlike the previous model which was rear-wheel drive and had an elemental engine. What however remains unchanged is the cutting-edge structure both models have. The new model has been created with a structure of unprecedented dynamic rigidity thanks to the multi-material body and space frame.
The design and packaging of the new model has been optimized by the “advanced sports package” that seeks to epitomize all the performance components such as the Sport Hybrid power unit, chassis, interior, and the Intelligent Power Unit. Additionally, the new model has the lowest center of gravity relative to its traditional rivals. The centered mass and the low center of gravity pay dividends in response and handling. The centered mass, for instance, helps the vehicle minimize the polar moment, making the NSX reduce rotational kinetic energy and respond faster to steering inputs. In Layman’s language, the Honda Acura NSX is easier to stop and easier to turn the rotation.
Once available the 2017 McLaren 570S and the Audi R8 are some of the rivals the vehicle under review will have to square it out with.

The vehicle’s overall dimensions, air flow inlet/outlet, body panel crease or shape have been designed a New Sports eXperience via the “form following function” concept and the “Interwoven Dynamic” overarching design theme. Honda says, the exterior body panel surfaces have been carefully calculated through thousands of complex computational fluid dynamics man-hours.
This is what exterior design project leader Acura Design Studio, Michelle Christensen had to say, “Every design element, every millimeter of the new NSX is focused on enhancing performance. The result being visual expression of performance and beautiful designs working together.”
The front fascia is sleek thanks to features such as a tapered front grille, Acura Jewel Eye LED headlights, and a chiseled aluminum hood. A choice of eight exterior colors is available. And according to Honda, each color in the palette has been carefully engineered and selected to usher in a new level of paint quality and to accentuate the exterior’s bold design.

Newly Offered Vehicles
Honda HRV 2017 – The newest 2017 Honda HRV is going to join the latest lineup of Honda models that we are going to get for the upcoming model year. We are predicting good things for this car.
Under the hood of the new Honda Acura NSX 2017 is a 500-horsepower – generating turbocharged 3.5L V6 engine that pairs to a trio of electric motors bringing the total output to 573 horsepower.
Although the Honda Acura NSX is expected to be a top dog in the supercar segment, it is surprising to note that it doesn’t come equipped with features such as automatic braking, collision mitigation, adaptive cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring. Automatic collision notification, stolen vehicle locating, and emergency assistance systems are however available as standard safety features. Details of its crash impact safety assessment will be updated on this space on its release date.
