Japan’s Mag-X got their first look at the new Honda S660, successor to the Beat sports car, at an event in Hokkaido. Also spied in the background, a camo’d Civic Type-R.

Like the Beat, the S660 will use a 660-cc engine producing 63 horsepower and 77 lb-ft, with a CVT or 6-speed manual putting power to the ground. Curb weight will be between 1,830 lbs and will get up to 2,116 lbs. Those looking for a speed demon should examine other options.

    I spent some time in Hokkaido. It was very cold. The car sort of reminds me of a Del Sol. Not a U.S. car for sure.

      Yeah, that small Japanese man can barely fit in it – most Americans wouldn’t at all. I really like that they maintained the original feeling of the BEAT though.

      But I like this more, look how cute.

    i had a beat in 1995/6. enjoyed ripping it around, mostly in shizuoka-shi. it was a gutless and poor handling machine. the gutlessness mostly kept me outta trouble but had a couple episodes of brown trousers time descending some of the twisty roads in the japanese alps. still, the car was as cute as a button and i loved every minute of it.

    this new version is about as cute and just as welcome. please continue, mr honda. and no, it really doesn’t belong on american roads.

    Yeah, cute and all that, but a Kei special and not much else. Where is the One concept Honda? That looked like something that could turn into a “real” car and be sold in most of the developing world fine.
