Honda Apparently Thinking about S660 for America
Honda would bring its small, two-seater S660 towards the U . s . States, Edmunds is reporting.
The vehicle, that is much smaller sized than Mazdas MX-5 Miata and categorized in Japan within the kei class, is powered there with a small, 660cc turbocharged three-cylinder.
In situation you aren’t obtaining what Im putting lower: the S660 could be fantastically small on American roads.
The S660s 90-inch wheelbase is 8 inches shorter compared to new Smart ForFour and something inch shorter than the usual Miatas.
Based on the report, the S660 will not be an immediate competitor towards the Miata, however it will have a bigger 1-liter, turbo 3-cylinder for that U.S. market, which produces 127 horsepower when compared to Mazdas 155 hp.
Were searching in internet marketing carefully for The United States, John Mendel, executive v . p . of yankee Honda, told Edmunds. We would like some spice within the selection.
The tepid CR-Z doesnt do much apparently, and also the Baby NSX rumor might be true-ant (the S660 is mid-engined, in the end).
Mendel added the vehicle would must be complemented having a somewhat sane business situation – It has to become commercially viable, he stated – but he must dig within the Honda archives for your. Check under S2000, Honda. Were sure its there.
