Several months ago, details about the forthcoming 2020 Honda S2000 have emerged. How will it look like? What engine will it use? That’s what we are going to tell you.
The S2000 lineup has been a two-seater sports car that is made for more than a decade. The latest model was made in 2009 and there is no follow up from Honda ever since. But, it appears that Honda is going to release a new iteration of the S2000.
2020 Honda S2000 Changes Exterior & Interior
It seems that we are going to see 2020 Honda S2000 redesign both inside and outside. At the moment, no one knows how the forthcoming S2000 will look like. This is because Honda keeps it well under covers. While this is true, there are many reports that suggest the new S2000 will be based on Acura’s business style.
What does that mean? Well, that means that the new S2000 will get a low front end, a comparable grille, subtler splitter as well as several sets of consumption. Also, the rear end may end up look like Acura NSX’s rear end.
Speaking of the interior, it may continue the basic, standard cabin that the current S2000 model has. While it may have a rather minimalist style we expect the forthcoming S2000 to come with lots of features for its price. Following its predecessor, the forthcoming S2000 will have most of its controls to be made with the drivers in mind. This results in controls that are very easy to use even while driving at a high speed.
Engine Specs & Hybrid Options
Interestingly, the forthcoming S2000 is going to use the same engine as the first generation S2000. In other words, it will use a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder engine that is mounted longitudinally. If this is true, we expect the engine to be tweaked and/or modified so it will be distinct from 2009 S2000’s engine.
The engine is said to be turbocharged by utilizing a two-step electrical supercharging. As a result, the engine’s turbo lag will be removed and thus, the engine will have a better torque at lower RPM.
Also worth mentioning, a speed handbook will be used. Assuming this is true, not only will the 2020 Honda S2000’s fuel effectiveness improved but it may have the highest speed among roadsters on the market.
2020 Honda S2000 Release Date and Price
When is the new Honda S2000 release date? Nobody knows but Honda. That being said, rumors suggest that the forthcoming S2000 is going to be exhibited in the next LA Auto Show and will enter the market soon after.
No announcement from Honda about the forthcoming 2020 Honda S2000 price, either. According to early rumors about the next generation S2000, the starting price will be over $50,000 and may be close to the new Supra.
It appears that the forthcoming Honda S2000 will use lots of elements from its predecessor. For instance, it will have similar cabin and engine. We do expect tweaks and/or updates are likely to happen to these parts. As for the exterior, no one knows for the moment but it will be a bit different while still maintaining the S2000 characteristics. In short, changes will be there but don’t expect to see something drastic.
