Acura NSX SUV Would Give Ford Mustang Mach-E Something To Worry About

Design / Comments

This would look amazing.

The Acura NSX is a phenomenal car, despite what sales figures in some parts of the world may suggest. Given our obsession with crossovers, there's now a real possibility that Acura will reveal a new SUV with NSX-inspired styling. Although it's just a rumor at this point, we wouldn't be surprised if it does become a reality. We're not the only ones thinking about it, and some have even turned their imaginations to digital paper. Among these is KDesign, and the latest render from this artist makes us believe that an SUV with NSX influences would be seriously cool.

It appears that the artist has used a Honda HR-V as the basis of the design, adding the headlights and hood of the NSX to the rendition. A sculpted roof adds further sportiness to the frontal aesthetic, and we have to say that the overall effect is rather pleasing. The windows with their rear-door handles hidden in recesses on the C-pillars remain from the subcompact crossover while the rear end of the hyptothetical new model also retains the subtle roof spoiler of the HR-V. The taillights are the most obvious change at the rear, with a full-width setup making the crossover look more staunch.

The NSX influence continues lower down, with a carbon diffuser housing quad pipes finishing off the look. Obviously, if this does come to market - perhaps as a direct rival to the Ford Mustang Mach-E - it won't have the original NSX's 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 and three electric motors as its powertrain, although we imagine that 573 horsepower and 476 lb-ft of torque would be a lot of fun. To make it affordable and accessible, it'll likely be only a little more powerful than other hybrid crossovers in its proposed class, but until Honda confirms that such a thing is actually in the works, we'll allow ourselves to dream of what could be.
