The 2017 Acura NSX is already winning awards for its unusual good looks and thrilling performance. But who pays $150K for an Acura? Well, the NSX just might have you rethinking the answer to that question.
Auto enthusiasts are deeming this highly-anticipated exotic coupe perfectly precise in every way. Acura’s latest awards garnered on behalf of its fifth-generation NSX not only praise the 2017’s performance, but also recognize this exotic’s long-term value and ability to satisfy daily racing urges.
BMW just launched one of the fastest cars ever in its four-door 2017 M550i xDrive sports sedan, which goes from 0-60 mph in under four seconds. As part of BMW’s M performance lineup, this supercharged 5 series sedan accelerates lightning fast because of the 456 hp 4.4-liter V8 coupled to a sporty eight-speed transmission.
Truly, this new engine plus the classic Euro styling makes it a “no compromise” sports-tuned, four-door performance car that delights speed enthusiasts both on the track (top speed is around 155 mph) and on the highway. The interior is as well-appointed and ergonomic as any other Beemer although this version — available Spring 2017 — is equipped with state-of-the-art connection tech including synched BMW Connected and BMW Remote apps.
Getting a head start, Audi has already launched the 2018 S5 Sportback and for good reason. This four-door sports hatch has a distinctive design, roomy interior, loads of cargo space (rear seats fold almost flat) and a 354 hp 3.0-liter V6 (0-60 mpg in 5.7 seconds) mated to an eight-speed transmission.
The new S5 Sportback also comes equipped standard with all-wheel-drive (AWD) and loads of other advanced safety and app-based infotainment technology. Like most Audis, the S5 Sportback is also defined by its luxuriously modern and minimalist interior with a crisp graphics screen atop the dash.
Jaguar’s throaty growl excites car enthusiasts and for good reason.
This new four-door 2017 Jaguar XE sedan brings on the sport-tuned performance along with Jaguar’s usual refinement, craftsmanship, comfort and technology. In fact, Jaguar’s XE is ever more lightweight than previous years with what the company calls its “aluminum intensive” body, which helps this cat jump from 0-60 mph in about five seconds (3.0-liter supercharged V6).
For those seeking fuel economy, the XE’s diesel engine option gets an estimated 42 mpg highway. Inside, the new XE is a veritable den of heart-racing British design and comfort along with top auto infotainment technology.
