The 2019 Acura NSX Performance

Hybrid Technology

The unmitigated power of the NSX is thanks to the Sport Hybrid engine system that is composed of a gasoline engine along with three motor systems for unparalleled control. Along with Super-Handling All-Wheel Drive and integrated dynamics, sitting behind the wheel of the NSX will make your thrill-seeking heart flutter.

  • Sport Hybrid Drivetrain – The NSX supercar with a hybrid drivetrain is a game changer. The powerful engine works with a front-mounted Twin Motor Unit (TMU) as well as a third Direct Drive Motor that combines for a more powerful performance and more precise handling and acceleration. Altogether, the drivetrain produces up to 573 horsepower, 476 lb-ft of torque, and a top speed of 191 mph. The hybrid system also translates into an improved fuel economy, estimated at 21 city / 22 highway / 21 combined mpg*.

  • Sport-Handling All-Wheel Drive – The Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD) system is an innovative design that redistributes engine power from the front to the rear to side to side automatically. The electric Twin Motor Unit (TMU) directs torque to each of the front wheels independently and maximizes the tractive control as the NSX goes through turns and curves. Able to accelerate earlier out of a turn, the NSX makes for faster lap times and more vigor behind the wheel.

  • Integrated Dynamics System – When behind the wheel of the NSX the Integrated Dynamics System allows drivers to switch between Quiet, Sport, Sport+, and Track Modes for different driving scenarios and driving moods—from the serenity of a gentle cruise to a high-performance athleticism. Each brings out and makes different driving characteristics shine by making adjustments to a host of drivetrain components.

  • Powertrain and Transmission – At the heart of the NSX is a 3.5L DOHC Twin Turbo V6 engine and is responsible for the bulk of its heart-pounding power and dynamics. Along with the entire hybrid system, the powertrain of the NSX is paired with a 9-speed Dual-Clutch Transmission offering close-ratios and more driver control.

More Performance with Exterior Design Features

With new exterior design details, the 2019 NSX can be spotted at first glance. Elegant yet imposing, heads will turn at the sight of the NSX on the road. But the designers and engineers also have made tweaks to the performance and exterior features for this years’ model, offering a stiffer suspension, an impressive space frame, high-performance brakes, and more.

  • Anti-Roll Bars – New for the 2019 model, the NSX includes larger anti-roll bars that increases roll stiffness in both the front and rear. The result is more intuitive and responsive acceleration and torque-vectoring than before.

  • Suspension and Adaptive Dampers – With a sophisticated and lightweight suspension system, the NSX achieves the ultimate rigidity and sport-tuned performance. Third-generation magnetorheological (MR) dampers respond to the road at a rate faster than 1000 times per second.

  • Space Frame – Comprised of extruded-aluminum beams, aluminum nodes, and high-strength steel, the space frame is at the core of the NSX’s strength and sports car performance character. It results not just in a rigid performance on the road but also forms structural rigidity, designed to endure crashes and impacts.

  • High-Performance Brakes – The NSX can stop on a dime with high-performance Brembo hydraulic brakes along with hybrid regenerative braking. NSX comes to a complete stop more quickly and efficiently every time.

  • Total Airflow Management – The architectural elegance of the NSX isn’t just for aesthetics, although the aesthetics are breathtaking. Every sculpted line and angle forms an aerodynamic shape that increases its air flow intake and outlet while maintaining balance. It’s the result of thousands of hours of analysis and the result is better performance and greater efficiency.

  • Tires – The 2019 NSX upgrades the tires to SportContact 6s. These tires feature a new tread pattern, updated internal construction, and a tweaked rubber compound which improves handling across different road surfaces.
