Battle Of The Supercars: 2017 Acura NSX vs Nissan GT-R
Supercars going up against each other are nothing new but it also never gets old. Another battle of the supercars has been set. This time, it will be the 2017 Acura NSX versus the 2017 Nissan GT-R. Which one is superior?
Supercar versus Supercar
According to a report from Motor Authority, the 2017 Acura NSX has a four-cylinder twin-turbo V6 engine capable of cranking out 573 horsepower and 476 pound-feet of torque. This is paired with a nine-speed twin clutch automatic transmission that sends the power through an all-wheel drive (AWD) drivetrain.
The 2017 Nissan GT-R, in comparison, has a four-cylinder twin-turbo engine 565 horsepower and 467 pound-feet of torque. This powertrain is matched with a six-speed automatic transmission that also sends the power through an AWD drivetrain as reported.
Supercars are understandably pricey but buyers would want to be able to save as much money from them as possible nonetheless. The price and fuel efficiency are therefore factors that need to be considered. In a report from Motor Trends, it was mentioned that the 2017 Acura NSX has a price tag of $157,800 while the 2017 Nissan GT-R has $111,858. In terms of fuel capacity, the 2017 Nissan GT-R can carry more with 19.5 gallons compared to the 2017 Acura NSX with only 15.6 gallons.
The fuel efficiency however, is dominated by the 2017 Acura NSX with a rating of 20/22/21 miles per gallon in the city, on the highway and combined respectively. The 2017 Nissan GT-R only has 16/22/18 miles per gallon in the city, highway and combined. While the 2017 Acura NSX has a more expensive price tag, it is bound to save more for buyers in the long run.
The 2017 Acura NSX clearly comes out superior in the aspects above. However, the 2017 Nissan GT-R also has a few advantages of its own that remain to be seen. It would be interesting to see how things will turn out when the two supercars do battle again. In the meantime, this round of the battle of supercars between the 2017 Acura NSX and Nissan GT-R goes to the NSX.
