It’s only a few years into its production life, but the 2019 Acura NSX is primed to receive a handful of important updates. These revisions will enhance the NSX’s looks and performance for the new model year. They also add a little extra value to this hybrid supercar.
The 2019 Acura NSX will not take a huge step away from the previous styling as it will take on a few subtle but noticeable updates. These include a new body-color grille in place of the old silver one and a high-gloss front grille surround, front air intake mesh, and rear bumper outlet mesh. The optional Carbon Fiber Decklid Spoiler and Carbon Fiber Exterior Package will also transition from a matte finish to a new high-gloss look. Rounding out the new-look body will be a new Thermal Orange Pearl premium paint option.
The 2019 Acura NSX’s restyling continues on the inside. Acura will add a new Indigo Blue semi-aniline leather and Alcantara optional theme and optional red color on the semi-aniline full-leather sport seats. There will also be a few options from the 2018 NSX that will become standard features in 2019, including the power sport seats, satellite-linked navigation, ELS Studio premium audio, front and rear parking sensors, and aluminum pedals.
Under the hood, things will remain the same with its 3.5-liter engine and electric motors that team up to produce 573 horsepower and 476 pound-feet of torque. Acura has, however, changed up the chassis with larger stabilizer bars that are 26 percent stiffer up front and 19 percent stiffer in the rear, 21 percent stiffer toe bushings, 6 percent stiffer rear hubs, recalibrated electronics, and new Continental SportContact 6 tires. These updates cut two seconds off its Suzuka Circuit lap time.
The 2019 Acura NSX will start from $157,500, which is a $1,500 increase over the previous model. While the price increase is a bummer, all the new features add $4,700 in value.
