The MX -5 is a better car

The Honda S2000 is an open-top sports car manufactured by  Honda from 1999 to 2009. It was an incredible feat of engineering. The 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine revved to 9000 rpm and was mated to probably the best gearbox ever installed on a production car. It put a smile on many a driver's face, but it's not a better sports car than the Mazda MX-5.

The suspension on the MX-5 is perfectly tuned, softer over bumps than the Hinda S2000 but more predictable and sure-footed in corners. Its steering never shuts up, giving you far more information. It encourages you to push harder, with the MX-5 revealing more of itself the faster you go. You can push it knowing that the chatterbox steering and progressive, communicative body roll will warn you long before you reach the limits of your grip. When you do, it dips into controllable, easy slides that are far more manageable than the Hinda S2000's past-the-limit behaviour.

The Mazda MX-5 is better in so many ways—at a race track, around tight corners, and in daily driving. It has the same peaky power band as the Honda S2000, the same excitement, but better handling, steering, less weight, and no bite. With the MX-5, Mazda has unquestionably built a better two-seat sports car than the Honda S2000.
