1991 Acura NSX: Thin A-Pillars Make for Great Visibility

January 24, 2012

One of the things that strikes me when I get behind the wheel of our NSX is how thin the A-pillars are compared to most modern cars. I'm not sure why this is the case, but I suspect it has something to do with airbags, roof crush standards and other such issues that weren't quite so prominent back in the late '80s.

Then again, maybe it's just a consequence of designers forgetting what makes an interior feel spacious. Or what improves visibility more than some fancy heads-up projector.

Either way, driving this NSX makes me realize how nice it is to see everything around you, even if it's the underside of most trucks and SUVs.
