Honda has announced a range of enhancements for the 2019 Honda NSX to make the hybrid supercar even more pleasurable to live with daytoday, and even more exciting to drive on track.
The focus has been to enhance the dynamics of the car while maintaining its everyday usability. Honda has equipped the 2019 NSX with larger front and rear stabiliser bars, which increase stiffness by 26 percent at the front and 19 percent at the rear. The rear hubs and controlarm toe link bushings are also stiffer, further boosting responsiveness through the chassis.
Beyond the hardware upgrades for 2019 Honda has also recalibrated the software controlling its Sport Hybrid SH-AWD power unit, electric power steering, Vehicle Stability Assist system and the active magnetorheological dampers. The dampers now provide a ride and response that is even more comfortable in the NSX’s softest setting, while maintaining the stiffer setup for higher speeds and on track driving. As an indicator of the improvements, the 2019 NSX is two seconds faster than the current model around the Suzuka circuit.
Powertrain updates for the 2019 model year include upgraded injectors, enhancement to the heat response of the turbocharger, and a new particulate filter.
Exterior upgrades are also part of the 2019 NSX revisions. The car can be specified in a new Thermal Orange Pearlescent paint colour, with the additional choice of orange calipers for the optional carbon-ceramic brake discs. The chrome finish of the upper front grille surround is now colour-matched to the bodywork, while a new glossblack finish is applied to the mesh in the front and rear bumpers. Inside, buyers now have the added choice of full red leather for the upholstery, or a new Indigo Blue trim if opting for the Alcantara and leather trim combination.
