Honda S660 Becomes More Fashionable With Komorebi Edition

Honda has dolled up its tiny Japan-only convertible, the S660, with the Komorebi Edition, coming next week to the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show.

Described as a “fun to look at, fun to drive, invigorating open-top two seater” that’s very “fashionable”, this special edition kei-car comes in three colors, including the Hidamari Ivory Pearl, pictured here, contrasted by the brown soft top.

Inside, the S660 Komorebi, whose name translates into “sunbeams leaves”, features a light tan leather for the seats and part of the dashboard on the passenger’s side, in addition to a special aluminum plate that decorates the console.

Aside from the visual upgrades, the manufacturer kept the 0.66-liter turbocharged three-cylinder petrol engine that powers the regular models. The unit makes 64PS (63hp) and comes paired to a CVT transmission, which is the only choice in the case of the Komorebi, while the rest of the lineup can also be had with a six-speed manual gearbox.

The Honda S660 Komorebi Edition will be joined by a variety of concepts and production cars made by the Japanese brand, at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show, which starts on October 25, for the press, and three days later for the public.

    Wouldn’t this car sell well in N.A?

      I think it’s too small for American tastes. People would be scared sitting in this next to a typical CUV on the road. Plus, if they think the BRZ/86 are slow, wait till they see this thing attempt 60 mph. Maybe if there was a bigger 1000cc turbo or an NA tuned 1500cc or something…

        I’d still want one but takers would be in the hundreds not even the thousands.

          Same here. I don’t mind ‘slow’ and I definitely like small vehicles.

    I think they could sell these in the states….

      I know it’s all about opinions but didn’t you see Mill0048’s cogent argument?

    I want one as the spiritual successor to my Cappuccino.

  • NICE SEATS.
