This original delivers unique power and style built for daily commutes and the curves of Santa Barbara highways. The 2017 Acura NSX brings excitement to the streets as this four-wheel-drive hybrid-electric car accelerates from zero to 60 mph in less than three seconds. The efficient 2017 NSX engine offers rapid torque vectoring, continuous thrust assist, a 3.5-liter dry-sump system, with a solid 21 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway. Its roar is low, but rugged, coming from the sharp four exhaust pipe design underneath its exterior. Stop in at Acura Santa Barbara today and take a test drive of the 2017 Acura NSX.

Acura engineer boasts about the excellence in the NSX design

The 2017 Acura NSX has a rare style in its 75-degree V-angle and automatic rev punch that offers exceptional racing appeal. Michelle Christensen, Acura designer, boasts about the excellence poured into the NSX design, “…We worked closely with the guys in the wind tunnel in Ohio to make sure that every surface was tuned for aero, but also that it was in line with the styling concept: ‘interwoven dynamic.’” Check out this American built original at Acura Santa Barbara, where customer satisfaction is our main objective.

Latest technology in the drive that delivers a boost in the 2017 Acura NSX

While driving, this clever NSX model has sensors that monitor data through its computers and work together with its internal hardware. From the front motors to the rear tires, this full-bodied ride is masculine with upshifts that are smooth upon acceleration. Under the hood of the exotic 2017 NSX is a trio of electric motors—two on the front axle and one between the twin-turbo V-6 and the nine-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The front motors influence this NSX model through gear changes along with the rear motor that drives the V-6 engine to build to its peak psi level to 15.2. This smooth operation inside the 2017 NSX is one of many reasons Acura Santa Barbara is proud to be a factory authorized Acura dealer.

2017 Acura NSX Deemed ‘Supercar’ by Automotive Experts

2017-02-27T12:24:05+00:00February 27th, 2017|Acura, New Vehicles|

After more than a decade of waiting, Acura introduces the second-generation Acura NSX stirring a buzz of fascination and awe.

The previous model of the Acura NSX that was produced from 1990 to 2005 proved to car enthusiasts that a supercar does not necessarily have to come from Europe. The first generation NSX brought new innovations to the supercar industry, such as the ‘Push to Start’ feature. However, Acura felt that to keep up with the competition they would have to head back to the design table. After twelve years of engineering, the 2017 Acura NSX is back with state of the art technology and a few new industry-firsts. iTech Post, an automotive news website, claims the 2017 Acura NSX “can go toe-to-toe with any European supercar.” As an authorized Acura dealer, Acura Santa Barbara takes great pride in hearing the critical acclaim of one of our brands by industry professionals.

What is New with the 2017 NSX?

When we consider the fact that this car has been in development for over a decade, it comes as no surprise that there isn’t a whole lot of similarities between this one and its predecessor outside of the collaboration of brilliant Acura engineers. For instance, in addition to a twin-turbo V-6 engine, the new NSX is equipped with three electric motors. Combined, the NSX puts out an impressive 573 horsepower capable of reaching from 0 to 60 mph in just three seconds. As a result of the electric motors, the NSX creates zero turbo-lag and a highly responsive torque output. Acura also successfully developed the vehicle to create very little noise making it both powerful and discreet.

One of the best new features of the 2017 NSX is the Sport Hybrid Super Handling All-Wheel Drive technology, a first when it comes to supercar technology. With full automatic all-wheel drive traction and handling system designed by Honda, the responsiveness of the NSX fuses car and driver into one powerful organism built for pinpoint cornering performance and stability. The 2017 Acura NSX also utilizes its body construction for aerodynamics and optimum functionality. This supercar is the perfect example of how to make form and function accent each other.
