Honda NSX coupe - Interior & comfort
Dramatic interior befits the Honda NSX's price tag
Honda's description of the NSX as an "aggressive daily driver" is evident inside. The interior looks the part and is full of sharp lines and curves, yet there’s plenty of luxurious leather and metal trim to enjoy, and you feel cocooned thanks to a high centre console and a leather-covered dashboard that almost wraps around you as it meets the doors.
The seats are firm and supportive, but they’re still quite comfortable, while some concessions have been made to day-to-day usability with thin windscreen pillars that make visibility pretty good for a car like this. There's a choice of four different interior colours, as well as three different seat fabrics, so you'll be able to make it feel and look as sporty or luxurious as you wish.
The dashboard uses a TFT digital screen in place of traditional dials, meaning the screen ahead of the driver can be configured in a number of different ways, including depending on which of the car's four driving modes you've selected. There’s the usual array of buttons on the steering wheel and a colour touchscreen in the centre console that's similar to ones found elsewhere in Honda's car range.
The nine gears are shifted via a pair of paddles on the steering wheel, although the centre console does without a traditional gearstick – that’s replaced by a series of buttons for park, drive and reverse, while the starter button takes centre stage and sits in the middle of the controls for the four driving modes; Quiet, Sport, Sport+ and Track.
The NSX comes with a generous list of standard equipment that befits a car costing £130,000. It's got bright LED lights at the front and the rear, cruise control, front and rear parking sensors (as part of a technology pack), keyless entry and start, dual-zone climate control, electric windows, ambient lighting and plenty of leather and alcantara trim. On the technology side of things, the NSX has a 7-inch touchscreen display with Bluetooth, sat-nav, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
