2007 Honda S2000 Overview

The 2007 Honda S2000 is praised for its perfectly-matched powertrain and exhilarating performance and handling. Still, most auto reviewers assert that it's built more for recreation than running errands. According to Forbes, the S2000 "is an exhilarating concoction of race-bred technology and sleek styling." Even so, many auto writers assert that its exterior and interior design are dated.

Most reviewers agree that the S2000's 237-horsepower four-cylinder engine is a good match for its six-speed manual transmission. According to Kelley Blue Book, the powerplant is "strong, but only after you get the tachometer above 5000 rpm." Edmunds asserts, "In a world of bloated sedans and SUVs, this roadster is a refreshing example of purity." However, Forbes cautions that the S2000 "is best suited for car enthusiasts willing to put up with its firm suspension, tight accommodations and high-revving engine for the sake of adrenaline-pumping performance and handling."

As for the exterior, Cars.com says, "Simply put, the S2000 is a hot number." Still, auto writers express disappointment with the fact that it looks largely the same way it did when it was first launched in 1999. Edmunds explains, "There's never been a full redesign."

The Honda S2000's two-passenger cabin also appears dated. In fact, many reviewers complain of its limited and outmoded interior features. Moreover, its tight seating arrangement affords little legroom to both driver and passenger and contributes to an overall lack of comfort. Consumer Guide says, "Large people have precious little room to spare" and "may find [the] seats too confining."

IntelliChoice gives the 2007 Honda S2000 a rating of "Excellent" for its predicted five-year total cost of ownership compared to other vehicles in its class -- and even designates it an "IntelliChoice Best In Class" winner for "Lowest Maintenance Costs" and "Lowest Operating Costs." Moreover, the S2000 receives IntelliChoice's "2007 SmartChoice Fuel Costs" award. Edmunds asserts that the S2000 offers a "high level of performance for the price." Consumer Guide adds, "The S2000 is pure sports car fun. It's a bit stiff-riding and noisy, and the Mazda MX-5 is a little more practical and a lot less costly, but for motoring enjoyment the spicy S2000 rivals the Porsche Boxster and BMW Z4 for thousands less."
