Ever since it was last seen in 2009, the popular sports convertible known as the Honda S2000 has been keenly anticipated among the fans. Well, according to the information our team has got, after almost a decade of waiting, they are about to see the next-generation of this Japanese roadster soon. The new Honda S2000 should hit the market as a 2019 model.
When it comes to exterior of the 2019 Honda S2000, this model is going to keep its traditional appearance of a two-door sports convertible. Understandably, the new S2000 will borrow lots of classic exterior features found on its predecessor, but some of the changes and innovations will be quite serious. For instance, the carmaker will use all-aluminum chassis combined with some carbon-fiber elements in order to save as much weight as possible. Therefore, with less than 2700 pounds of weight, the new S2000 is expected to be one of the lightest models in its class. Besides those materials, the company will also keep that well-known soft top which will additionally help reduce the weight. Made like this, the new S2000 can only improve its acceleration, efficiency and overall performance. This sports car has also been said to apply the latest Acura design. In fact, the S2000 has been largely compared to the Acura NSX in terms of look. They will have the similar front and rear fascia. The unique S2000 will get an attractive V-shaped grille in its lower front end as well as a set of LED headlights with a bit aggressive design. Its large air intakes will also show some rework.
We must say that the interior of the 2019 Honda S2000 has been quite mysterious at the moment. However, we have all been familiar with the interior design of its predecessor so things probably won’t change much inside this next-generation model either. The new S2000 is expected to keep that simple and minimalist interior design. It will offer two comfortable and supportive seats that will probably be covered in premium leather. Honda should also make some serious updates in terms of technology as well as its safety systems and driver assist features that it will include.
Although it hasn’t been confirmed yet, the 2019 Honda S2000 should come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Such an engine, which uses an electric supercharging system, delivers 306 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque in the Type R model. The S2000 is expected to produce more than 320 horsepower. It will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission and get a rear-wheel drive system.
