Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

The S2000 scored four stars out of five in Euro NCAP crash tests, which put it among the leading roadsters at the time. Traction control was missing (even from the extras list) until February 2006, when it was made optional. Although there are dual front airbags, sidebags are not available but remote central locking is standard and an alarm was fitted to all cars from late 2000.

The semi-electric folding roof is fiddly to operate - you have to release two catches but it's awkward and requires some man-handling. Overall it's quite an effort when other manufacturers offer slick folding metal hardtops. The boot is quite big for a two-seater but is an awkward shape and there are too many intrusions so fitting square objects (such as larger suitcases) isn't easy.

Worse still, there's little additional space in the cabin for storing much else - the tiny door pockets are pretty useless and there's no glovebox either.
