For 2019, the Acura NSX gets visually louder, with new gloss black trim panels, a new Thermal Orange paint option and new cabin colors including Indigo Blue with black Alcantara or a full red leather interior. New standard equipment includes ELS Studio Audio, navigation and proximity sensors, as well as 4-way power-adjustable sport seats (can be replaced with weight-saving manual seats at no charge). The 2019 NSX also gains thicker stabilizer bars, Continental SportContact 6 tires and revised tuning for the electronically controlled AWD, electronic power steering (EPS) and dampers.
We like the NSX's $160,000 entry price and wouldn't push it up too much by adding on carbon fiber bits and upgraded interiors that don't enhance performance. Toss in the carbon ceramic brake package and manual seat adjusters and call it a day.
The 2019 Acura NSX comes in only one trim with a number of optional performance and styling enhancements.
The Acura NSX ($159,300) includes an adaptive damper suspension, Brembo brakes, forged aluminum Y-spoke wheels (19-in up front, 20-in in the rear), corner and backup sensors, flush-mounted power pop-out door handles, remote keyless entry, variable wipers, LED taillights, Jewel Eye LED headlights, body-colored heated power side mirrors with reverse auto tilt-down, dual-zone automatic climate control, push-button start, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, cruise control, 4-way power adjustable leather and Alcantara heated sport seats with 4-way lumbar control, a 9-speaker ELS Studio audio system, a 7-in display audio touchscreen with navigation, Siri Eyes Free, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a TFT digital instrument cluster and Active Sound Control.
Options for the NSX include a number of exterior paint choices, full leather seating and carbon fiber add-ons for the interior, roof and rear spoiler. Buyers can opt to reduce weight by ordering manual seats, and there are a number of wheel options as well. For an additional $10,000, buyers can order a carbon ceramic brake upgrade. SiriusXM satellite radio is part of a $500 audio upgrade package.

2019 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 -- The Corvette ZR1 is a monster of a car, easily crushing the NSX in the areas of horsepower and performance. But the ZR1 is a beast to drive and has a rather flashy exterior. However, it does cost a lot less.
2020 Audi R8 V10 -- The Audi R8 V10 shares much of its components with the Lamborghini Huracan. It is a refined machine with more horsepower than the NSX, but similar performance times. The R8's cockpit feels more refined and high-tech, but its fuel economy lags far behind the NSX.
2019 Porsche 911 Turbo -- The 911 Turbo holds more clout than the NSX, and it also makes a very livable daily driver. Its performance is a bit more visceral than in the NSX, with a faster 0-to-60 mph time, a more polished interior and more personalization options.
Used Lamborghini Huracan -- While it might not be easy to find, a used Lamborghini Huracan will offer you brilliant performance in an exotic supercar guaranteed to turn heads wherever it goes.
