Honda has announced a range of enhancements for the 2019 NSX which in an effort to make the hybrid supercar more pleasurable to drive on a day-to-day basis, and even more exciting to drive on track.
Honda has equipped the 2019 NSX with larger front and rear stabiliser bars which increase stiffness by 26% at the front and 19% at the rear. The rear hubs and control-arm toe link bushings are also stiffer, further boosting responsiveness through the chassis.
Beyond the hardware upgrades, Honda has also recalibrated the software controlling its Sport Hybrid SH-AWD power unit, electric power steering, Vehicle Stability Assist system, and the active dampers.
The dampers now provide a ride and response that is even more comfortable in the NSX’s softest setting, while maintaining the stiffer set-up for higher speeds and on-track driving.
In combination with the revisions to the chassis hardware and software, the 2019 NSX will be fitted as standard with the Continental SportContact 6 high-performance tyres.
Powertrain updates for the 2019 model-year include upgraded injectors, enhancement to the heat response of the turbocharger, and a new particulate filter to ensure that the NSX complies with the Euro 6d-TEMP emissions standards while maintaining its high level of performance.
Thanks to these improvements, the 2019 NSX is 2 seconds faster than the current model around the world-famous Suzuka circuit.
In terms of aesthetics, 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 gloss-black 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.
That being said, the updated 2019 Honda NSX is expected to be arriving at showrooms worldwide in 2019.
