2019 Acura NSX vs. Its Competition

2019 Acura NSX
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

Supercar buyers are looking for emotion.

They want sleek looks to go with ridiculous power and track-ready performance.

The NSX delivers on all counts, though the brand can’t claim the cachet of its rivals.

The BMW i8 is conceptually similar to the NSX, but it doesn’t approach the Acura’s lofty performance numbers, opting instead for better efficiency.

The Audi R8 V-10 is fast and sexy, offers the seductive sound of a V-10, and is also livable like the NSX in daily driving.

The Lamborghini Huracan has been updated into an Evo edition, and its cockpit empaneled with lots of digital displays.

The Porsche 911 Turbo doesn’t look much different than other 911s, but it has tons of power, handles the rigors of the track, and is the most refined of Porsche's performance-tuned 911s.

Quick Specs
7.4
The 2019 Acura NSX drops supercar performance numbers in a gas-electric, typically offbeat tour de force.
8.0
The 2020 Porsche 911 improves upon the sports car icon’s incredible performance while adding needed safety and connectivity features.
6.8
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.
8.2
As much a track star as it is a comfortable daily driver, the 2018 Audi R8 is one of the most balanced and flexible supercars ever made.
