SPYSHOTS: Honda S660 Spotted In Production FormAuto News
Honda’s upcoming S660 looks set to make its way to dealers across the country thanks to Japanese website Minkara that published photos of what appears to be the production version of the convertible kei car.
Originally introduced as a concept in 2011 as the EV-STER Concept and more recently at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show as the S660 Concept, the final product serves as the successor to the 90s Honda Beat.
In terms of design, there isn’t a huge departure between this and the 2013 concept that bears the same name. The head light and tail light clusters are modified as is the grille. The interior also resembles the familiar Honda design as well, and less of that found in the funky concept.
Measuring only 340 cm in length and 148 cm in width, the S660 weights less than one ton (1,000 kg). A Perodua Axia measures 364 cm (length) and 162 cm (width) in comparison. Powering the small kei car is a 660 cc three-cylinder turbocharged engine, pushing 63 hp and 104 Nm torque through either a CVT or, as you can see in the images, a six-speed manual transmission.
It does resemble a miniature Honda NSX, right? Unfortunately, it won't make its way to Malaysia. Boo.
