    Does the NSX styling better than the NSX.

    Love the interior!

    Why can't more cars have interiors like that?
    (Unless it is just a Concept interior..)

    It is a concept interior, but knowing honda they'll make the production version the same shape but just much cheaper..

    Great interior, decent exterior. Now give it a 6 speed manual you've got yourself a sports car. As it is, 60-some bhp with a CVT isn't going to be all that exciting.

    Definitely. RWD is the best feature.

    21st Century Honda Beat is exactly what I was thinking when I first saw this car. And yes- that futuristic interior is awesome.

    Make it the half price version of the Alfa 4C please. I'll bite.

    The tachometer is disappointing, though. In a car like this, I feel like the RPMs should go to 15,000, not 9,000 :(

    I like it but the current Honda styling is not that great.

    You are so correct, but the fact that Honda is thinking in this way again is terribly exciting, no?

    Modern day Beat. Love it. Probably won't be outright fast if they produce it, but then that rather misses the point of kei cars. Being so small (still has to be built to the same size rules, after all) it'll feel much faster than it actually is.

    Incidentally, here's the EV-STER that inspired the styling:


    Exterior styling is pretty similar. Interior has changed quite a bit and has obviously got closer to production-ready, even if it's not quite there yet.

    The good news I guess is that even if it's Japan-only, people will start importing them into the UK if the exchange rate is healthy enough.

    *Like!*
    Looks good, though I'm not too sure on the back end.
    The lights remind me of the GT86 Concept, and they looked a bit out of place too.

    Looks epic... Hopefully there will be a version with 5-speed manual and 64 HP which is very lightweigh, just like the Beat

    I think the glory days of gearboxes coming in 5 speeds are long over.

    A lot of my colleagues are going for it being a turbo. I'm not entirely sure why - it's not in the press release (in fact nothing about the engine is, but it's a good bet it's a 660cc 3cyl with 63hp, because "S660" hints at Kei regulations), the tach goes to over nine thousand and the car it's paying homage to, the Beat, was just about the only non-turbo Kei car...

    Haven't been a fan of the design direction and cues Honda has taken and this concept isn't going to change that. The old Beat still looks great though.

    The original beat sounded like a mini-nsx. I hope this one is similar!

    -> Meh, it still follows Takanobu Ito's Jaw design philosophy. So much promise (MR & RWD) yet so much disappointment (CVT & will not see North America).
