Is the 2021 Acura NSX a Safe Car?

The Acura NSX has been on sale since the 2016 model year. Yet, it hasn’t been crash-tested by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Honda has a strong reputation for safety. The NSX comes with front and side-impact airbags, side curtain airbags, a driver’s knee airbag, as well as traction and stability control. But many of the latest safety technologies that are either standard or optional on the company’s least-expensive cars are missing from this six-figure exotic, including lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and adaptive cruise control.

2021 Acura NSX vs the competition

2021 Lamborghini Huracan: The Huracan is the extrovert’s supercar. Its V10 engine is loud, brash, and enables ferocious acceleration. The Huracan looks aggressive and sounds menacing at just about any speed. The Lambo is a car built to thrill everyone inside the car and out. We particularly like the theatre of flipping up the red flap and pressing the “start” button. 2021 Chevrolet Corvette: The mid-engine Corvette packs almost 500 hp from its big, torque-rich V8 and can match the NSX’s 3-second 0 to 60 mph times. The Corvette delivers impressive performance on a curvy canyon road, too. But it’s also a smooth-riding sweetheart around town. The Corvette is an excellent daily-use sports car at a bargain price point. 2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S: The new 911 Turbo S is a bit more expensive than the Acura -- but it’s a lot quicker. Thanks to its 640 hp twin-turbo 6-cylinder, this 911 will run to 60 mph in under 2.5 seconds. That’s astonishing. And because it’s a 911, the Turbo S is easy to live with around town, boasts tremendous resale value, and delivers the kind of backroad handling only a Porsche can offer. Used Audi R8A second-hand Audi R8 is a great value. These machines share much of their mechanical makeup with the Lamborghini Huracan but wrap it in a more sedate and more approachable wrapper. To our eye, it’s the prettier car, too. And there’s nothing quite like the quality of Audi’s interiors. Since so many R8s are used as second or third vehicles, many have low miles and are in great condition. Used McLaren 570GTThe 570 is McLaren’s entry-level sports car. And the GT model indicates that the suspension has been softened slightly to deliver a better McLaren for daily driving. But with 562 hp and the ability to rocket to 60 mph in 3 seconds flat, this is no-less a supercar than any other McLaren. Buying one used means someone else took the depreciation hit and you can enjoy the exemplary chassis tuning and precise steering at a discount.
