It's disheartening that Acura has declared 2022 as the final year of NSX production, but Jon Ikeda, the Vice President of Acura, gives some hope of light mentioning the brand’s perspective, “We’re a company of enthusiast, and we’re already investigating what the next generation of sports cars should be in the coming electrified era.”

2022 Acura NSX Type S Engine and Performance

The 2022 Acura NSX Type S is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.5L V6 engine which gains new components including bigger turbochargers. The 9-speed DCT transmission remains unchanged for the 2022 NSX Type S, however, it shifts 50% faster. The Intelligent Power Unit(IPU) and 9-speed DCT gains fine-tuning to efficiently power the tri-motor hybrid setup. The new NSX Type S also gets an improved battery output, battery capacity, and boost pressure. With these new improvements, the 2022 NSX Type-S can complete a 0-60 mph sprint in under 3 seconds.

The 2022 Acura NSX Type S faces tough competition from formidable rivals like the Porsche 911 Turbo and the Audi R8. The Audi R8 V10 Performance has 602hp at its disposal which helps it sprint past 60mph in 2.9 seconds. Although the Porsche Boxster-6 accounts for 572hp, i.e. a bit less than Acura NSX Type S, the responsive throttle takes it beyond 60mph within 2.8 seconds. Thus, both the rivals outperform Acura NSX Type S by a small margin.

2022 Acura NSX Type S Interiors and Trunk Space

The 2022 Acura NSX Type S interiors look premium and spacious. The dash and door panels are wrapped up in leather, whereas seating is trimmed in premium Leather-and-Alcantara. Customization options are available to add full-leather seating and carbon-fibre elements. The cabin space is sufficiently roomy to seat two passengers at ease. However, the 2022 Acura NSX Type S trunk volume is restricted to 4.4 cu-ft which is less than the usual sports car standards. 

On the inside, the latest innovations introduced by Acura include the Alcantara headliner, contrast stitching, and embroidered/embossed logos that make the cockpit appealing. The comfort creatures like Dual-zone auto climate control, heated seats, and ambient cabin lighting make the interior environment pleasurable furthermore. The 7-inch touch display integrates all the necessities like Apple Carplay, Android Auto, Navigation, Bluetooth, and a premium 9-speaker Audio system.

2022 Acura NSX Type S Exteriors

The 2022 Acura NSX Type S looks more aggressive with the redesigned exteriors. At the front, the Type S exterior gets a new splitter, new nose, and larger grille having additional steel-mesh intake vents. And at the rear, we get a new larger NSX GT-3 style carbon-fiber diffuser. The new forged-alloy split-five-spoke wheels are wrapped in Pirelli P Zero tires, which are offset-installed to widen the track.

Extensive use of carbon fiber can be seen across the aerodynamically enhanced Acura NSX Type S exteriors - right from the rooftop to the front splitter and decklid spoiler. The dark-tinted Jewel Eye headlight and taillight lenses, gloss Berlina Black accents, and a red-engine cover makes the NSX Type S style more demonic. You can choose from 10 exterior colors, but the most celebrated one is the new Gotham Gray matte metallic paint.

Thus, this finalized version of the Acura NSX is a car that will be loved by both purists and enthusiasts alike. Its exceptional performance and value make it a force to be reckoned with in the supercar market.
