2019 Acura NSX Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 7.7

The 2019 Acura NSX's interior is tuned to the driver’s needs. The artfully bolstered seats, airy cabin, and good visibility keep you comfortable mile after mile. Additionally, you are surrounded by mostly high-quality materials and sophisticated styling. There isn't much trunk space, however, and the infotainment system has some quirks.

  • "Acura's designers have managed to create a warm and welcoming cabin with a modern, high-tech vibe. There's nothing retro about it; still, the shapes and overall design offer a connection to the interior of the original Acura NSX." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)
  • "Areas liberally covered with Alcantara faux suede add a racy flare to the interior that's otherwise very Acura-like in its design simplicity. Materials are authentic and borderline lavish with varieties of colors and materials delivering unique combinations more along the lines of what Porsche or Audi offer. … An available Alcantara headliner and a genuine leather-covered dashboard are touches often seen in high-end luxury cars; most dashes use imitation leather." -- Cars.com (2017)
  • When you climb inside the NSX, you're immediately faced with one unavoidable reality: You're sitting in an Acura. You're not awestruck that you're in a supercar. You're not excited to find yourself sitting in a high-dollar exotic. You're not overcome with the joy of being in a long-awaited icon. You look around the cockpit, you take everything in, and you think to yourself: 'Yep, this is an Acura.'" -- Autotrader (2017)

Seating

While some sleek, low-slung supercars require extra contorting to get into the car and feel confining once you are there, the NSX is airy and easy to get into. Its two seats come standard with heat and power adjustments, and its perforated semi-aniline leather seats are trimmed in Alcantara. For no extra charge, you can swap these out for lightweight, manually adjustable sport seats upholstered in Milano leather. The standard door panels, steering wheel, and instrument panel are all wrapped with genuine leather. Semi-aniline full leather seats are available.

  • "The NSX’s seats are super snug, but not overly padded. I’m not the skinniest guy, and I not only felt comfortable in the Acura’s buckets, but was glad they had the perfect amount of bolstering to keep me in place through faster corners. There’s an option for power adjustments, but I’d go with the manual seats to drop the center of gravity ever so slightly while shaving a couple pounds." -- Jalopnik
  • "The sport seats are that same blend of comfort and snug bolstering that make you feel like you could lap in it all day and night." -- Automobile Magazine
  • "Visibility is excellent for a mid-engine sports car and the interior is well-finished. Deeply bolstered bucket seats trimmed in perforated Milano leather and Alcantara provide an excellent combination of comfort and support without feeling confining and are complemented by extra padding on the door panels and center console. The flat-bottom steering wheel is a cool touch." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)

Interior Features

The NSX's infotainment system is not one of its high points. Navigating through the menus can be taxing, and the touch-screen display and a lack of certain controls can be distracting to use for the driver. Thankfully, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard and give you quick integration with your smartphone along with a straightforward layout.

Standard features in the NSX include a 7-inch touch screen, navigation, Bluetooth, two USB ports, HD Radio, an ELS Studio premium audio system, a proximity key, push-button start, LED ambient lighting, dual-zone automatic climate control, a multi-angle rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, emergency brake assist, and corner and rear parking sensors. Satellite radio is one of the few interior upgrades available.

  • "The inside of the NSX will look familiar if you've driven other recent Acuras because it shares many of the same controls. It also means the NSX inherits most of the flaws. The touchscreen has too many menus to go through, and the transmission selector buttons seem unduly fussy." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • The 7.0-inch infotainment touch screen is well placed but seems a bit pedestrian at this price point." -- Kelley Blue Book (2018)
  • The USB port compatible with CarPlay and Android Auto is located in the rear console storage box, while a second USB port in the glove box is used for charging or for other MP3 devices. The user experience is pretty typical of other Acura and Honda vehicles with touch-screens, meaning the lack of physical controls for volume and tuning is just as annoying in the NSX." -- Cars.com (2017)

Cargo

The NSX has one cargo area in the rear measuring 4.4 cubic feet. Not only is the space small, but it can heat up enough to melt chocolate because of its close proximity to the engine. The NSX also has very little in the way of cabin storage.

  • "There's a paltry 4.4 cubic feet of space between the engine compartment and the rear bumper. Two small bags will fit, but their contents will be subjected to quite a bit of heat due to poor insulation. There's no front trunk, so anything remotely heat-sensitive needs to be kept inside or left at home." -- Edmunds (2018)
  • Under the NSX's rear hatch is a 4.4-cubic-foot trunk Acura says can fit one golf bag or a weekend's worth of luggage for two people. The size and shape aren't out of the ordinary for the class, though most mid-engine cars place their luggage compartment up front like the Audi A8 (8 cubic feet) and Porsche 911 Turbo (4.1 cubic feet)." -- Cars.com (2017)
  • "If there's one knock to the interior, it's that there's little storage, and most of it is hard to access while driving. That too is probably on purpose." -- Autoblog (2017)
