   The Honda S2000 is manufactured since 1999.

   This car comes with a 2.0-liter VTEC engine which develops 237 hp and will take you from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.2 seconds. Simmilar to all VTECs the S2000 delivers all it's power on the high revs, but acceleration at low- and mid-range is sluggish.

   Honda S2000 has a traditional sports car's arrangement with engine in front and the rear driven wheels. Handling is sharp and accurate, while the car has plenty of grip and keeps the road well. Manufacturers improvements in 2004 made handling even better, while suspension became more forgiving for riding over bumps and lumps.

   Engine of the Honda S2000 is noisy, however you can find this sound amazing. Wind noise is very intrusive with the roof down, especially at high speed.

    The Honda S2000 is not expensive to buy, considering price of it's rivals. However you will struggle to get 10 l /100km on average (30 mpg) as the fuel consumption is rather high. The S2000 is very reliable as all the other Honda models.

   Inside the car interior is well built, durable and nicely fitted together. There are some elegant sporty details, as the steering wheel, pedals and gearlever, made from a first-class materials, which give luxurious feel.

   This car isn't suitable for larger drivers because there is a lack of space in cabin. Steering wheel and drivers lack adjustments.

   The S2000 is intended only for two people, but it's quite a squash if you fit two adults in this car. Also there are very few oddment spaces for your stuff. The boot isn't practical, because you only can carry very little luggage in it.

   From the safety list there are standard two front airbags and anti-lock brakes. However stability control is absent, but it is standard in most rivals. Also the S2000 is an easy candy for a thieves as there are some security gaps with it.

   Equipment level of the Honda S2000 is only average. It is offered with electric hood, windows and mirrors, leather upholstery, alloy wheels and some other minor trim goodies.

   Production of the Honda S2000 still continues and the 2007 model hasn't got any significant changes comparing with the previous.

 

   Advantages: Affordable convertible, that's nice to be seen in.

   Disadvantages:  Engine feels lifeless at low- and mid-range revs.

   Verdict: Very focused, which can appeal or detract.

   Also consider: BMW Z4, Porsche Boxster.
