Honda S660 Modulo X makes us love the micro roadster even more


Special edition boasts both styling and performance upgrades

The Honda S660 has to be the most desirable kei car right now, and this new Modulo X special edition makes us even more jealous at Japanese buyers as they’re the only ones that can enjoy it.


The Modulo X is a sportier version of the standard S660, and that’s obvious when looking at the more aggressive bumpers, the active rear spoiler, and the black mirrors and alloys (available in 15- or 16-inch sizes). Highlights also include the Bordeaux Red soft top and the LED DRLs.


The interior has also been given a sporty treatment, with the two-tone leather and Lux Suede seats matching the leather steering wheel and dashboard accents. The gear knob is unique to the S660 Modulo X as well and comes in two flavors: titanium for the manual variants and two-tone leather for CVT models. The car also features a leather-wrapped handbrake and two-tone floor mats.


We know you’re waiting for the performance bits, and the S660 won’t disappoint as it features a specially tuned suspension with five stages of damping adjustment — quite a sophisticated thing to have in a kei car, don’t you think?

Add to that the cross-drilled rotors and upgraded brake pads, and the S660 Modulo X should offer a sharper driving experience. However, Honda fails to give information about the engine, and that likely means no modifications were made in that department.


Still, the standard 0.66-liter turbocharged three-cylinder rated at 64 hp (63 bhp) and 104 Nm (76 lb-ft) of torque should be potent enough for a car that weighs around 850 kg (1,870 lb). Naturally, the S660 Modulo X is best enjoyed with the six-speed manual gearbox.

Prices for the Honda S660 Modulo X start at 2,850,120 Japanese yen, which is roughly $26,000 at the current exchange rates.
