"Cruising up Highway 1 and the neighboring roads, the NSX felt sticky around the on-camber corners, but compliant enough not to overreact when the roads got a little bumpier. Quiet and sport have one base suspension setting, while sport-plus and track have another. You won't feel too much difference in front-to-back motion, or heave, as the engineers told us, but those upper modes definitely firmed things up side to side. We will say that even in the stiffest mode, the magnetic dampers didn't wear us out, even after a long day of driving. Supercars now need to be everything to everyone it seems, and this one is no different. In quiet, you could tool around all day and almost forget you were driving the newest, high-techiest, Japanese exotic." -- Autoweek
Acura NSX: No dreaming, Honda advances 'stupid fast'
"Before we wander off into a dark corner discussing the 15 different attributes adjusted by the four NSX drive modes, let's get front and center with one thing: the NSX is fast. Like, stupid fast. The kind of fast that makes you giggle every time you hit the gas. The kind of fast that makes you think about how the walls at Sonoma Raceway are way, way too close to the track.
And dang, the NSX is comfortable. The low floor and long doors make getting in and out slightly gymnastic, but otherwise the interior is hitting the easy button. The seat padding is perfect, and a mere four ways to adjust means you can find the perfect driving position easily." -- Autoblog
"Hold the dial several seconds for Track mode and you finally see the vision, the car that Honda dreamed of. On the Michelins, it is ferocious, leaping at corners with steering so tightly wound that you vector the car by palm impulse. The brake pedal is just a rheostat to command (by wire) the electrohydraulic brakes, but it's given a more organic feel by a hydraulic pressure simulator. The net effect is a firm, highly effective pedal, one that is very sensitive to minute changes in pressure. Iron discs will be standard, while the cars we drove had the optional carbon-ceramic rotors." -- Car and Driver
"You can hear the turbos while you're driving, but you won't believe they're actually there. The relationship between your right foot and the engine's output is so incredibly linear that you'd swear on your life that the NSX's engine was naturally aspirated. At higher road speeds, where the electric motors' output drops relative to the gas engine's, you can feel some lag, but only if you're looking for it. This, kids, is the proper way of dealing with turbo lag in a supercar. Ferrari, take note." -- Motor Trend
