The Honda S2000 is in a good place when it comes to collectible classics. Aside from the car’s obvious allure, it’s old enough to be rare and interesting, yet new enough to not have to panic when spare parts are needed. The local dealer still offers every conceivable part for the car, which is great for a bespoke roadster that’s been out of production since 2009. And Honda has just announced that they will continue making parts for the car as a heritage model (probably since they literally have nothing heritage-worthy in their current line-up to be proud of). So far in our experience,
Despite rumours, there is no direct successor to the legendary S2000. The car ended production more than a decade ago, but as owners we can attest that spare parts will probably become a worry in the future. Honda still makes parts for the car and the local dealer does a half-decent job of shipping them in on order(see our long-term updates). However, Honda has announced that they will now offer a catalogue of parts for the foreseeable future as well, as it has designated the S2000 as a heritage model.
The first month of the new decade opened up to two massive recalls from two Japanese manufacturers, one letting the infamous Takata airbag issue to resurface. In addition to this, an American manufacturer is correcting a mistake that it had made while it was correcting a previous mistake.
With the entire global car market making a vigorous shift towards crossovers, sedans are turning more and more irrelevant by the day. Especially in the small-car segment, individual buyers are wooed by the high-riding hatchbacks on stilts. But sedans are not dying without a fight. Honda has launched the seventh generation of their sub-compact sedan, the City.
As comparison tests go, this isn’t the most exciting, but it is probably relevant to a whole lot more people than pitting Porsches and Ferraris against McLarens and Lamborghinis yet again (spoiler alert: Porsches and Ferraris are always better). What we have here today are the newest segment of vehicles to sprout from the SUV revolution — the sub-compact crossovers. Not quite SUVs, but not really cars either, the sub-compact crossover gives owners the feeling of driving an SUV while keeping ownership costs within car-like levels. The newest of the bunch is the Honda HR-V, going up against the immensely-successful Nissan Kicks.
