The 2017 Honda S2000 marks the reemergence of the roadster that was discontinued in the year 2009. With this new offering, the Japanese automaker estimates that there will be enough space to make it a good vehicle on the market. It is highly assumed that the new 2017 Honda S2000 will be the Honda’s answer to the forthcoming 2016 Mazda MX-5 Miata.
2017 HONDA S2000: ENGINE AND FUEL ECONOMY
The predecessor of the 2017 Honda S2000 was a standard gas burner, but this new model will not. For this version of the roadster, the automaker has decided to employ a mid-engine configuration that is believed to be able to present better fuel economy. The base power unit (and quite possibly the only option) is a four cylinder turbo charged 2.0 liter unit that is paired with an electric motor. This unit will be intelligently mated with a seven speed dual clutch automatic transmission and rear wheel drive. The engine is said to deliver an estimated maximum output of 365 brake horsepower. This is slightly more impressive than that which is delivered by the Miata’s engine which registers in at 325 brake horsepower. The new 2017 Honda S2000 sports coupe does appear, on paper, to be able to present consumers with better fuel economy than that of its Mazda competitor.
2017 HONDA S2000: EXTERIOR AND INTERIOR
In comparison to the previous model, the 2017 Honda S2000 will have increased aerodynamics as well as an aesthetic that presents with a higher level of muscle. According to industry insiders, the vehicle will be adopting a variety of exterior detailing from the 2016 Acura NSX. The body will have a number of aluminum and carbon fiber pieces that will lend to a rigid design feel while ensuring a great deal of security and high quality. It is widely speculated that the amount of lightweight materials being used to construct the coupe will result in an overall weight of 2800 pounds. Combined the decreased weight with its turbocharged engine and consumers will be guaranteed an impressive amount of performance and handling.
As of yet, there has been no confirmation regarding what the interior of the vehicle will look like. It is greatly assumed that the design of the interior will be expressly sporty and the materials used will be of moderately high quality. Given Honda’s long standing track record in regards to providing consumers with the latest in automotive technology, it is fair to believe that the new 2017 Honda S2000 will be very well equipped. Unlike the previous model, this one is promised to provide additional interior space. Both the driver and their passengers would find the ride and feel to be very impressive and comfortable.
2017 Honda S2000: Release Date and Price
The 2017 Honda S2000 will make its way into showrooms in the calendar 2016, just in time to into the growing segment market. The base pricing for the sports coupe is estimated to be just below $ 70 000 whereas its greatest completion weighs in at upwards of $ 30 000. Unfortunately for the reemerging vehicle, the 2016 Miata weighs in very close in regards to specs and carries a price tag that is approximately half of its own. What does truly work in its favor is that the Honda S2000 is set to offer consumers a good result, a super roadster and impressive styling. The automotive giant will be targeting younger drivers with this new vehicle offering.
