Enjoy them – just not too much, okay?

Honda NSX departs Australia, but an NSX-based SUV could be coming

The Honda NSX has been retired from the Australian line-up, the company has confirmed. According to VFACTS data, only nine examples of the $420,000 Honda coupe have sold since the car was released in 2016 – and none in 2020 – prompting the NSX to be removed from sale. Honda Australia confirmed the decision, telling CarAdvice new orders for the model can no longer be placed. The NSX does remain on sale in other markets such as the US and UK.
