Review: Chris Harris on the 2017 Acura NSX

There are your regular car reviewers, and then there’s Chris Harris. Famous for his work with evo, Autocar, Jalopnik, and Chris Harris on Cars, his recent video comparing the LaFerrari, Porsche 918, and McLaren P1 has quickly reached over one million views.

As one of the more popular automotive journalists today, a positive review from Chris on the new NSX would be a huge win for Acura and Honda. Fortunately, Chris’ first review in evo Magazine is a favorable one, awarding the NSX 4.5 stars out of a possible 5. That’s a pretty good score coming from a guy who regularly tests supercars.

“Traction is predictably impressive, but the mind games really begin when you switch all the clever traction control off and see what happens when you provoke the NSX… The search uncovers only good things. You can play with this car – allow the front to push, use that mid-engined layout to alter the line and rotate the rear. It’s not as easily playful as a 488 or an R8 because those pesky front motors always ultimately want to drag the car straight again. But it is way more fun than I’d imagined it would be and, most importantly, it demonstrates the depth of chassis development that has been undertaken to make this car worthy of the NSX badge.” – Chris Harris, evo Magazine

The review is a lengthy one, so if you want to read it in its entirety you’ll have to download the free evo app available for Apple iOS and Android.
