Honda NSX Pricing and Specs
Honda’s super-technical NSX supercar was a long time coming. The spiritual successor to the brand’s legendary early-'90s world beater was rumoured, whispered and teased at motor shows across the planet for years before finally hitting Australian roads in early 2017.But it was worth the wait.
Powered by a 3.5-litre twin-turbo engine which, combined with an electric motor, generates 427kW/646Nm, the NSX Premium (hybrid) will scream from 0-100km/h in a lightning-quick 2.9 seconds. Is it as emotionally gratifying, as soulful, as a roaring Italian supercar? Probably not. But after years of snooze-worthy cars, it certainly put Honda back on the map. The only problem? The two-door, two-seat monster arrived in Australia wearing a $420,000 price tag, which is probably responsible for its glacially slow sales in this country.
This vehicle is also known as Acura NSX (America).

Honda NSX FAQs
Check out real-world situations relating to the Honda here, particularly what our experts have to say about them.
What is the best dog-friendly car?
If you like the idea of the Honda but don’t want such a physically large package, take a look at the Honda Jazz. Yes, it’s probably one size down from your current Focus, but its interior is very spacious for its external dimensions. It’s also the car that has probably the most versatile interior in terms of flexible seating arrangements with a rear seat that folds, slides and tumbles. It also has normal ride height (as opposed to the jacked-up stance that SUVs boast) so your dog may find it easier to jump in without hitting anything. Beyond that, you really need to visit dealerships and check for yourself that rear doors, rear seats and general layout suit your very specific canine requirements.Show more
Why is the plastic around the gear shift on my 2019 Honda CR-V deforming?
Plastic interior components in Japanese and European cars were once very susceptible to early failures in terms of cracking, peeling, discolouring and warping. The problem was that the manufacturers from these markets had an utter lack of understanding of Australian levels of UV radiation and heat cycles and, as a result, their plastic interiors soon disintegrated. Things soon changed for the better, however, and modern cars have very resilient interior fittings.
However, that makes it even stranger that your car should be exhibiting this problem. I’s not something that we’ve seen across a wide cross-section of CR-V vehicles, so maybe it’s a one-off manufacturing fault. Perhaps the plastic trim piece you refer to was damaged when it was fitted at the factory and has gradually become worse with age. Either way, it should be a simple warranty repair for your local dealership. Replacing the trim piece with a new one is the answer as the damaged part probably can’t be repaired economically.Show more
Should I buy a Hyundai Kona or Honda HR-V?
It’s nice to see that the worldwide web has put Carsguide in touch with people in the USA and that they’re prepared to ask for advice from half a planet away. Meanwhile, if safety is your number one priority, then you really need to find a vehicle with all the latest driver aids such as autonomous emergency braking, lane-keeping assistance and rear-cross-traffic alert. These are the new safety must-haves now that air-bags, stability control and other systems are considered par for the course.
The catch with your situation (from our point of view) is that the vehicles we assess and test in Australia don’t necessarily correlate with the North American buying experience. The specifications of Australian-delivered cars don’t always line up with those of a USA-market vehicle, and that can mean that the safety kit fitted here isn’t mirrored by the same make and model sold on your side of the pond. Don’t forget, too, that some makes and models (Hyundai and Kia are good examples) often feature Australian input into the suspension and steering settings to make them more palatable to an Australian audience. As a result, the same car without that input (such as the version sold in the US) might drive very differently.Show more
