Five Things You May Not Know About the 2017 Acura NSX
The Acura NSX is a combination of exhilaration and luxury at its finest. And this supercar is no stranger to awards. In 2015 it was named by Popular Science Magazine as the “Best of What’s New” Winner. Most recently, it was named Road & Track 2017 Performance Car of the Year. While you may know that you can find this car on sale in Edmonton, here are a few things you may not know about the all-new 2017 NSX.
It Has a Surprisingly Large Amount of Cargo Space for Its Size
While cargo space may not be on your must have list when shopping for an NSX, there may be times when it comes in handy. The 2017 NSX has 3.9 cubic feet of cargo space located behind the rear engine. That may not sound like a lot, but if you want to drive your new NSX to the golf course, at least you will have room for your clubs.
The NSX Doesn’t Have an Interior, but a “Human Support Cockpit”
Simply calling the inside of this vehicle an interior doesn’t do it justice. Acura prefers to call it a Human Support Cockpit. Why? The company paid much attention to designing it to be ergonomically superior. The steering wheel’s shape allows for increased surface contact with the driver’s hands. The paddle shifters are designed to be easily reached, and forward visibility is maximized through carefully thought out ergonomic design.
It’s the First Mass-Produced Vehicle with Robotic Metal Inert Gas Welding
The NSX is simultaneously lightweight and rigid. Its front panels are made of a carbon fiber core and all the aluminum space frame components have been joined together through use of Robert Metal Inert Gas welding. And its distribution is 42 percent front weight and 58 percent rear weight.
Lowest Center of Gravity You Will Find
If you are looking for a car on sale in Edmonton or anywhere else that handles the road like no other, then you will want to test out the 2017 NSX. It has the lowest center of gravity of any of the vehicles that are in its class. To beat out the competition in this area, Acura used twin fuel tanks made of a specialized resin material which allowed them to optimally shape the tanks.
The NSX Offers the Option of Four Different Driving Modes
When driving the 2017 Acura NSX, you have the option to select one of four driving modes which are Sport, Sport +, Track, and even a Quiet mode. The Quiet mode minimizes cabin noise by prioritizing electric-only driving when you are at lower speeds. This is a great feature, but Sport sounds much for fun.
