2021 BMW 8-Series vs. 2021 Acura NSX

 

The 2021 BMW 8-Series combines the performance of a sports car with the comfort of a grand tourer. The 2021 8-Series is an excellent vehicle for those looking for an all-rounded car that is still thrilling to drive. The 2021 BMW 8-Series comes with a comfortable cabin that is decked out with a variety of tech and luxury features. Its sizable cabin and trunk space make it suitable for all kinds of roles

The 2021 Acura NSX was designed to be a sports car that you can also use for everyday tasks. In this, the engineers succeeded as the 2021 NSX has the exterior looks to pass off as a sports car. Performance is nowhere near a sports car level though and any car enthusiast is unlikely to love this car.

Design & Style

In designing the 2021 8-Series, BMW was going for jaw-dropping good looks and thus this gorgeous vehicle delivers that and more. The 2021 BMW 8 -Series has a beautifully curved body that enhances its sportscar status. Inside the cabin, you get a beautiful interior that is decked out with premium materials. The sports wheels, tapered headlights, and flared wheel arches all serve to accentuate the beauty of this car.

When it comes to the 2021 Acura NSX, the exterior design is striking and the NSX is sure to turn heads anywhere it goes. The interior is another story though. Although Acura attempted to pass this car as a luxury sports car, they went ahead to use less-than-premium materials in the cabin. This typically makes the NSX look less refined on the inside. There is plenty of space however in the cabin and the luggage trunk.

Technology & Safety

With a 10-inch infotainment display system and many other tech features, the 2021 BMW 8-Series is sure to thrill any driver. It features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard in all trims. The 2021 8-Series also comes with BMW’s remarkable iDrive software that powers the infotainment system. This can be controlled via touch, voice, or even gesture.

When it comes to the Acura NSX, one can expect to get a 7-inch touch screen display and several other tech features. As with the interior styling, the 2021 NSX’s infotainment system looks aged and the graphics are of poor quality. This again only serves to make the 2021 NSX look subpar when compared to its other rivals such as the 2021 8-Series.

Performance

The 2021 BMW 8-Series is powered by a six-cylinder twin-turbo engine that produces about 355hp. This means that even with the base model, flooring the gas pedal produces a response that is truly worthy of a sports cruiser. While the base model is fast and powerful, there is a V8 variant for those who want a lot more power. The 2021 8-Series handles brilliantly and is very composed around corners.

While the 2021 Acura NSX looks like a sports car, its performance on the road falls woefully short. The 2021 NSX is powered by a V6 turbocharged engine that while impressive on paper, delivers a sluggish performance on the road. The hybrid version is no better although it does deliver an ultra-silent ride.

The Bottom Line

While these cars are billed by their manufacturers as sporty tourers, only the 2021 BMW 8-Series can claim that title. The 2021 Acura NSX delivers a terrible performance and its interior is nothing close to a luxury sports car. Therefore the 2021 8-Series easily wins this comparison.
