Supercar Comparison: 2019 ACURA NSX VS 2019 AUDI R8

Two powerful supercars, only one winner with a comparison of the 2019 Acura NSX features and the 2019 Audi R8.

There are a lot of ways to compare supercars like the Audi R8 and the 2019 Acura NSX in Edmonton. We can compare safety systems, warranties, engine outputs, speeds, and more. On all of those fronts, though, the 2019 Acura NSX features superior returns.  

Safety systems on the two cars are nearly identical, with one important difference: Acura includes AcuraLink's GPS and cellular system for not only alerting emergency responders, but also to allow the owner to track and unlock the vehicle. Warranties, likewise, are lopsided in the NSX's favor with 2 more years and more kilometers on the docket. 

With supercars like this, though, it's all about performance. Here are a few things to consider:

Those impressive numbers are just getting started. The 2019 Acura NSX features better fuel economy as well. While both vehicles are rated at 10.7 l/100km on the highway, the NSX is far better in town. It's rated at 11.2 l/100km versus the R8's 16.8 l/100km.  

From there, it only gets worse for the 2019 R8, with the 2019 Acura NSX in Edmonton having a nine-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive versus the seven-speed automatic and rear-wheel drive of the R8. Plus the NSX offers launch control. Not so with the Audi. 

There are a lot of reasons to consider the 2019 Acura NSX and its features and a lot of reason that the 2019 Acura NSX in Edmonton is the supercar to have. If you come drive one today, you'll see why we're right.
