What Car? says...
The first-generation Honda NSX was pioneering. Contrasting with the exquisite but temperamental high-performance metal coming out of Italy in the early 1990s, here was a model that blended high performance and good looks with legendary Japanese reliability. It showed performance car buyers you could have your cake and eat it too, and in effect changed the face of the supercar market overnight.
It was, as you’d expect, a tough act to follow, but this second-generation NSX – launched back in 2016 – did its best to rewrite the supercar rule book for a second time.
Which brings us to the current model. For 2019, Honda treated the NSX to an in-depth update that focused on its steering, suspension and complex hybrid system, all in a quest to create a car that could finally stand toe-to-toe with rivals such as the Audi R8 Performance and McLaren 570S.
But has it succeeded? Read on to find out. And don’t forget, even if you’re not in the market for an NSX, there is a good chance we can save you a few quid on your next new car if you check out our New Car Deals pages.
