Honda NSX coupe - Practicality & boot space

The Honda NSX is useable every day – as long as you travel light

Practicality & boot space Rating

2.0 out of 5

Honda has designed the NSX's seats to be both comfortable and supportive, but also to make it as easy as possible to get in and out. After all, this is a very low-slung sports car. The dash is mounted low between two thin windscreen pillars, both of which are thinner than most to improve visibility. That only goes so far, though, as rear visibility isn’t great, which limits the NSX's potential as a 'daily driver'. 

Interior space is somewhat limited, but that’s to be expected from a car like this. There are small door pockets and a small glovebox, but there are no cupholders and relatively few extra cubbyholes to store bits and bobs. The boot, located just behind the engine, is just about big enough for a couple of squishy bags, although Honda claims it's big enough for a set of golf clubs. Unlike the Audi R8 and the old NSX, there’s no front boot for extra space. If you're going to use the NSX for a holiday or road trip, you'll need to be skilled in the art of packing light, because the boot weighs in at just 125 litres.
