Honda NSX Review

The Honda NSX was released as the brand’s competitor against the Lamborghini and Ferrari supercars. Yet it was also designed as a more practical alternative for everyday use and long-term affordability. A V6 engine at 280bhp that is able to arrive at 62mph in 5.5 seconds powers the NSX. Like most other models, the NSX delivers the same reliability the Honda has been known for. But the NSX is still a supercar, and has been exclusively distributed in different parts of the world. Only 400 units were sold for the UK market. Nonetheless Honda plans to follow up its success and released a new generation model in 2002.

Pros

The NSX was first released with a 3.0-litre V6 unit at 260bhp, capable of arriving at 60mph from standstill in just 7.3 seconds. Eventually it was replaced years later by a 3.2-litre V6 unit at 20bhp more and with a five-speed gearbox over the six-speed variation. Only the 3.0-litre V6 unit has remained but it has been upgraded with the F-matic transmission. But whatever engine you opt for, both are able to deliver amazing results and revv hard just as a supercar should. Expect its highest revv at 8,000rpm. The manual gearbox comes out as the best choice due to its sense of involvement.

Ride and handling is impressive thanks to the development of the late Ayrton Senna. Expect the supercar to excel along the open road. The grip is also sheer and willing to tackle all sorts of bends. Stiffer suspension, the wider track, and the new front spoiler have been improved to allow for better cornering ability.

Despite being a supercar, you won’t have any problems bringing this vehicle around for daily tasks. Although the cockpit isn’t as spacious as other family hatchbacks or minis, you can adjust the leather electrically for proper support. The adjustability allows the driver to focus instead of feeling cramped. You also get a sporty feel due to the low down seating position and the high centre of the gear lever and high centre stack. The column’s indicators and controls may appear odd at first but are quiet easy to read. You’ll also be enjoying the stereo’s excellent quality—a plus for those that need their music on long journeys.

Cons

Expect that as a supercar, engine noise will be an issue as you drive the vehicle along quieter lanes and around town. If you plan to bring this on long journeys, have the patience to bear with the powerful engine. The cabin doesn’t stand out in terms of looks, at least against its more experienced supercar competitors. The interior doesn’t quite match up to the power of its performance. Visibility is also limited for the driver, especially when you have to look at the back.

Handling could use a little improvement, as power steering tends to be unresponsive compared to other models. It’s smarter to opt for the model that includes non-assisted steering. The NSX also tends to be unpredictable when you revv in the earlier models. Opt for the most recent ones that include improvements on the suspension.

History of Honda NSX

                The Honda Motor Company manufactured a sports car in 1990 which was called Honda NSX. Its first generation was available from 1990 until 2005 and it was first assembled in Tochigi, Japan, but in 2004 assembly was transferred to Suzuka, Japan. This has a transversely mounted mid engine, rear wheel drive layout and is available in the following transmissions: 4-speed automatic, 5-speed manual, or 6-speed manual.

                NSX, which stands for New Sportscar eXperimental was designed by Nicholas Zander, the chief designer, and by Shigeru Uehara, who is the executive chief engineer. It was named as the Car of the Year in 1991 by Wheels Magazine of Australia, and it was also Automobile of the Year in 19991 by Automobile Magazine.

                Among its key competitors include prestigious brands such as Porsche, Jaguar, and Ferrari. Changes were made in 1997 to enhance the car’s performance to provide more comfort when driving the car. The first generation production of the car ended in 2005 because of low sales, mostly due to improvements done by Ferrari to its models.

                The second generation of the NSX, as announced in December 2007 by Tetsuo Iwamura, will be released by the year 2015. The Honda NSX will be assembled in Marysville, Ohio, USA with a 7-soeed dual clutch automatic. The car’s layout will be a mid-engine, all wheel drive, and the concept car was displayed at the Acura NSX Concept in 2012.
