It’s All About You

The NSX’s driver-centered cockpit puts the “simple” in supercar.

June 2, 2016

From the moment you slide into the driver’s seat of the NSX, you can tell that this car is special. From the intuitive instrumentation and modern control layout to the careful application of materials and padding in the sport seats, steering wheel and center console, the NSX provides exceptional, driver‑centric ergonomics that support the driving experience.

To develop an interior with exceptional ergonomics, the Acura design team utilized a number of test drivers with wide-ranging driving experience and skill sets to gather information to improve all aspects of driver feedback and support in the NSX.

Attractive as well as structurally rigid and lightweight, the seats in the new NSX are designed to offer superlative comfort and support, with the lateral and fore/aft support needed for a supercar. Developed through extensive testing and pressure-mapping measurements, these seats offer more comfort than those in competing high-performance vehicles while providing the torso and thigh bolstering needed in a high-limit vehicle like the NSX. Leather and Alcantara® were carefully selected for the perfect combination of dynamic driving support and comfort, including ease of ingress/egress.

Similarly, the center console/controls have been designed to help minimize distractions from the most important function – driving – ultimately serving as a “simple sports interface.”
