If £28,000 sounds like a lot to pay for a roadster wearing a Honda badge, console yourself with the fact that the decent equipment and residual values of around 49% after three years will compensate a little. Servicing costs won’t break the bank, but insurance in group 20 might. And you’ll struggle to get 30mpg, especially if you make the most of the car’s abilities.
Honda S2000 Sports quality & reliability
There’s no faulting the quality of the materials in the S2000’s cabin, or the way that it’s all screwed together. We also like the neat sporting touches, such as the leather steering wheel, drilled pedals and aluminium gearlever. And as the car wears a Honda badge, you can be assured that the reliability will be excellent.
Honda S2000 Sports safety & security
Driver and passenger airbags, and anti-lock brakes are standard, but we’d like to see more safety kit on the S2000. More airbags wouldn’t go amiss, but at least it has stability control. All versions come with an immobiliser and alarm to help deter thieves.
