Honda Small Hybrid Sports Concept

by Nick Aziz

Honda has revealed the Small Hybrid Sports Concept -- a compact sports car that features the Japanese automaker's latest hybrid technology and futuristic design cues.

The Small Hybrid Sports Concept is based around a front-wheel drive, small car platform and is powered by a Honda IMA 4-cylinder petrol/electric hybrid system driving through a CVT transmission.

The exterior design of the two-door coupe is characterised by short front and rear overhangs, wheelarches that wrap tightly around large wheels, and rounded body styling that contrasts with sharp "˜folded' edges along the waistline and at each corner.

The Hybrid Sports Concept is equipped with 165/60 section tyres mounted on 20-inch rims. Their dimension supports low rolling resistance without compromising sporty driving. The coupe measures 4000mm in length, is 1270mm tall and 1760mm wide, and has a 2350mm wheelbase.
