Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 28 - 28 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Two-seat roadsters are rarely cheap to run and the S2000 is no exception. While servicing rates at Honda dealers should be reasonable, the car does require maintenance every 9,000 miles. Insurance is group 20 - the highest rating, while the VTEC engine will return just 28mpg.

The S2000 scores badly on the eco front and the VTEC engine emits 236g/km of CO2 while only managing 28mpg.

This is where Honda excels and owners have experienced very few problems with the model since it was launched in 1999.
