The 2016 Honda S660 should be released next year. The new roadster represents the successor of another Honda model, the Honda Beat, which was discontinued back in 1996. The new model, however, takes much of the resemblance as the latter, including the factory in which it will be made. The new model will be based on the Honda S660 Concept, which was presented to the audience at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. Since the Beat was very popular, we expect nothing less from the new sports models. The new S660 will probably not keep the same appearance as the S660 concept, since the production versions are usually more modest and simple. In addition, the body of the new roadster will be made out of light materials mostly, so it will weigh less than 2,000 pounds. Such small weight will allow the vehicle to use smaller engines without worrying about its performance. The new 2016 Honda S660 will use a 660-cubic cenimeter engine, which is how it got its name in the first place, while it is expected that the U.S-model will feature a 1.0-liter engine.
2016 Honda S660 Exterior
The 2016 Honda S660 will have an amazing exterior. Even though the new model is a continuance of the former, outdated Beat, the new model will look nothing like old or overcome. The new model will simply be stunning. The front end will probably be the most interesting part. It features slim and impressive headlights which form a clean line with the grille. The car will have an amazing and very fluent body line, while its side look is sharp and edgy. The model is unique, fun and a bit menacing. The rumors say that the production version of the 2016 S660 will keep most of the styling cues seen on the concept, though it will also borrow certain elements from the supercar, the Acura NSX. This is surely good news. We have no doubts that the new roadster will look absolutely impressive and that it will be one of those models which leave no one indifferent. As for the interior, there isn’t much information about its design available. However, some sources say that the new model will have a very futuristic and fun cabin. Also, the 2016 Honda S660 will feature the latest technology gadgets in both leisure and safety, so it should meet the demands of any roadster fan.
Powertrain: Japanese And American Versions
The 2016 Honda S660 will use a turbocharged three-cylinder with a displacement of 660 cubic centimeters. This small unit will comply with the Kei standards and use yellow plates, which will be interesting. The aforementioned, rather small engine will generate 64 horsepower and 77 lb-ft of torque. Since the expected weigh of the model is less than 2,000 pounds, this should provide enough power so that the driving is all about fun. As for the model which will be available in the USA, it should use a turbocharged 1.0-liter mill that produces around 127 horsepower.
2016 Honda S660 Release And Estimated Price
The 2016 Honda S660 should be released next year, first in Japan, then in the USA. We believe all the premieres and releases will take place during 2015. As for the price, there are no official announcements yet, but some estimation says that the new S660 should start its price at the 25,000.
