Supercar meets luxury car

Supercars are wonderful performance vehicles, delivering lightning-fast acceleration and unmatched handling. They also garner a lot of attention with their standout looks. However, they often lack in the luxury and comfort areas. This is where the 2021 Acura NSX sets itself apart. Sure, its 573-hp 3.5L twin-turbo V6 hybrid powertrain, standard all-wheel drive, and well-tuned suspension give it the supercar performance you expect. However, it’s also true to its luxury car roots with premium materials, upscale features, and a surprisingly comfortable and composed ride that make it a legitimate daily driver supercar.

5 reasons to buy the 2021 Acura NSX

1. Stunning performance 

Acura may not be known for its performance cars, but it’s sure to check all your performance boxes with the 2021 NSX. This wild supercar boasts a 3.5L twin-turbo V6 engine matched with a trio of electric motors to deliver a combined 573 hp. This power rockets through a nine-speed dual-clutch transmission and standard all-wheel drive for a blistering 3.1-second zero to 60 mph sprint time. On top of this, the 2021 NSX's hybrid powertrain helps it deliver far better fuel economy than the typical supercar, with an EPA-estimated 21 mpg city, 22 mpg highway, and 21 mpg combined.

2. Nimble yet comfortable 

The 2021 Acura NSX carves up the corners with the best of them thanks to its double-wishbone suspension and magnetic ride control. This may lead you to believe it would be uncomfortable as a daily commuter car, but the NSX is surprisingly comfortable, even on rough roads. This makes it one supercar you’ll have no issues with being your everyday car.  

3. Attention-grabbing looks 

Supercars are known for garnering a lot of attention on the open road, thanks to their unique designs. The Acura NSX is no exception to this rule. From its sleek silhouette to strong body lines to the blacked-out grille flanked by striking LED headlights, the 2021 Acura NSX is sure to grab passerbys’ attention everywhere it goes.  

4. Well-appointed interior 

Inside, the 2021 NSX proudly displays the upscale look and feel Acura is known for. It comes standard with all the premium features you’d expect from a luxury brand, including leather- and Alcantara-wrapped seating, power seats, and more. Plus, its various driving modes take it from wild to mild, making it feel even more luxurious. You can further dress up the cabin with the NSX’s optional carbon-fiber trim package if you crave something even more exclusive.
