According to latest reports, we should see a premiere of the 2019 Baby Acura NSX this year. We are all aware that the Japanese manufacturer is filling its sports car lineup in past few years. After many years of absence, this company is once again present in the supercar world. As you may know, we saw a launch of the completely new version of the iconic NSX supercar a few years ago. Now, it is turn for something smaller. There are various predictions about the new model’s name. It should be a successor to the S2000. However, since it should come with a hybrid powertrain and adopt various technologies from the NSX, many reporters christen it as 2019 Baby NSX. Of course, it won’t be named like this. In any case, the new model should have a premiere this year, while the serial production should begin soon after.
2019 Baby Acura NSX design
The 2019 Baby Acura NSX will be a completely new model. However, this car should be a spiritual successor to the legendary S2000. The company has already presented a new S660 in Japan. So, we can presume that the new 2019 Baby Acura NSX will have much in common. In terms of performances and capabilities, this model will sit between Civic Type R and NSX supercar. We expect that the new model will feature a similar shape as NSX, just in a smaller package. Besides familiar lines with the supercar, we expect many cues from the new S660. Of course, this model will come under Acura badge, so expect to see brand’s specific design language. Besides attractive exterior, the new sports car will also feature pretty amazing interior. Expect to see plenty of latest in-car technologies. It terms of equipment, we believe that the company will focus more on performances.
2019 Baby Acura NSX powertrain
The main reason why this upcoming car is called 2019 Baby Acura NSX is its powertrain. Just like the NSX supercar, this model will also feature a hybrid powertrain. There are two predictions for the new model. Most likely, the new model will feature a 1.5-liter gasoline engine in a combination with few electric motors, making total output of 300 horsepower, roughly. However, there are also reports that suggest new 2019 Baby Acura NSX will come with the Type R’s 2.0-liter engine. Moreover, this engine will be tuned up to 330 horsepower. If we add estimated 70 horses from electric motors, it seems that a total output will be around amazing 400 horses. Also, some reports suggest that a conventional gasoline version will be in the offer as well. In this case, it is quite possible to see Type R’s engine under the hood of the new sports car.
2019 Baby Acura NSX release date and price
There are not many details about the new 2019 Baby Acura NSX. So, it is still hard to make some predictions when it comes to the launch date and price. Most likely, we will see a premiere of the new sports car during this year, while the production model should arrive in 2019. Of course, don’t be surprised to see it by the end of this year.
When it comes to price, this should be some kind of a budget version of NSX. It should cost around 70.000 dollars, according to some reports. This seems pretty affordable if we consider that the NSX supercar goes over 150.000 dollars. Naturally, we will see lower numbers in terms of performances. Some suggest new 2019 Baby Acura NSX will go from 0-60 in about 5 seconds, while a top speed should go around 155 miles per hour.
