Used Honda NSX Coupe 2016-present review

Honda NSX Coupe (16-present)

What alternatives should I consider to a used Honda NSX coupe?

We’d take a long, hard look at the Audi R8. On paper, it’s extremely similar to the Honda with a mid-mounted engine, two seats and four-wheel drive. In the flesh, though it offers a much more old-school driving experience, with a roaring V10 engine and more traditional handling. It’s also more widely available and considerably cheaper to buy used.

If practicality is key, though, a Porsche 911 Turbo or Turbo S might be a better bet. Not only do you get two extra seats, but it’s also more compact, and even faster than the NSX while also delivering better fuel economy.

But if you want the best driver’s car in this part of the market, you’ll have to go for the McLaren 570S. You’ll have to pay more than you will for the Honda, but you’ll get a car whose steering feel and chassis mobility are hard to beat.

Verdict

The second-generation Honda NSX is a technological marvel and great fun to drive, but unlike the original, its flaws make it irksome to live with day-to-day

  • Astonishing traction and grip
  • Blistering acceleration
  • Impressive urban fuel consumption
  • Cheap-feeling interior
  • Awful infotainment
  • Not much luggage space
