Honda S660

customer feedback

3 cars incl. 2001 Mazda RX-7

My car arrived on Monday, I'm so thrilled to have it! The condition is fantastic, you were right to talk me out of the white one, I can see how much better this car is so thanks. AS you know I've been writing a blog about the whole process, for your info the car in the end came in about $200 under the budget you originally gave me, so kudos. I guess it's time I start looking for a car for my Dad now as well :-)

Pics and info for:

Honda S660

Built from 2015 onwards, the Honda S660 while perhaps is named in honour of the S600 from the 1960's, it's fair to say the S660 is more the spiritual successor to the Honda Beat from the earlu 1990's. The S660 is a 2 door, rear engined convertible kei car, a special category of cars in Japan that have cheaper registration costs, cheaper toll road costs and cheaper parking costs as long as they meet certain requirements in terms of physical size, engine size and even maximum power output.

As such, like all kei cars the Honda S660 has a 660cc engine (turbo charged in this case) with 64hp (47kW) mated to a 7 speed tiptronic CVT auto or 6 speed manual. While 64hp doesn't sound like much, close ratio gearing and 830kg make for a car that's fun to fling around in city driving, if not a bury-you-in-the-seat power house. Fuel economy is a standout with 21.2km/L for MT, 24.2km/L for CVT. The exotic mid engine layout makes for excellent weight distribution, which combined with the very light weight results in excellent handling. The 6 speed manual is a rare feature in a kei car, and tiptronic auto models feature a sports mode and paddle shifters.
