The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 BMW i8 is a head-turner for its looks, which hides its plug-in powertrain. That’s good or bad, depending on your priorities. The 2019 Acura NSX drops supercar performance numbers in a gas-electric, typically offbeat tour de force.
