There is only one trim level available for the two-door, two-seat NSX coup. The 2017 NSX also comes equipped with adaptive suspension, 19-inch wheels in front and 20-inch wheels in back, summer tires and keyless ignition and entry, as well as leather and suede-appointed upholstery. The 2017 NSX also sports a 7-inch touchscreen display. There is a technology package available, as well, that includes a navigation system, front and back parking sensors and a premium satellite navigation system. Exterior carbon-fiber trim accents are also available. Other options include performance tires, special paint, rear spoiler, power seats and different styles of wheels.

Performance is where the 2017 Acura NSX really shines, however. Starting with a powerful twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 that pushes out 500 horsepower and 406 foot-pounds of torque, and finished off with rear-wheel drive that is controlled with a nine-speed manual transmission that can be automated - the performance is hard to beat. In addition, the front wheels have their own individual electric motors to add even more power and control. There is also a mid-mounted electric motor to give it even more power, and move that power up the power train even faster. The result is essentially all-wheel drive with a twist. With these extra motors, drivers can add power to one front wheel and reduce power in the other, making steering even more responsive. The third electric engine is on the crankshaft and levels out gear changes. The NSX can also be driven in all electric mode at low speeds. This sports car easily climbs to 60 mph in three seconds flat, so make no mistake that this is indeed a sports car, with an estimated top speed of 191 MPH. Even with all this, the 2017 NXS still gets 21 miles per gallon combined. The sports car is no lightweight though, weighing in at around 3,800 pounds.

The 2017 Acura NSX also includes several safety features, including side airbags and knee airbags, as well as a rearview camera and front and rear parking sensors. The NSX includes automatic collision notification, emergency assistance and help in locating a stolen car. What you won't see, however, are blind spot monitoring, collision mitigation or automatic braking. Forward visibility is good, which is a rare thing to see in a sports car.

All-in-all, the 2017 Acura NSX is fast, high-performance vehicle that Acura wisely brought back to life for 2017, and it's set to make big waves in the sports car sector. While the NSX is all muscle, it does not have the flair or attitude some would expect. Edmunds calls it a "supercar without the swagger." Whether you see that as a positive or a negative will have an influence on how much you like the car.
