TOKYO — The Honda S660 Concept hints at the new face of Honda as the automaker rolls out its lineup for the 2013 Tokyo Auto Show.

The S660 Concept, a minicar with a 0.66-liter engine, is designed with the Japan market in mind.

It features the so-called "Solid Wing Face," where the headlights merge with the grille.

Honda calls the concept "an open-top sports-type mini vehicle." The S660 Concept bears a striking resemblance to the Honda EV-STER Concept that debuted at the 2011 Tokyo Auto Show. However, the latest concept features a traditional steering wheel, while the EV-STER sported twin joysticks.

The new Honda concept has been likened to the Honda Beat minicar as well, which featured a two-seat setup and side vents.

The upcoming Tokyo auto show will also be the setting for the world debut of the Honda N-WGN, the fourth model in the N Series of mini vehicles. The N Series is sold in Japan.

Honda also will display a version of the NSX sports car concept. U.S. consumers will probably do a double-take when they see the photos of the NSX, since it is wearing a Honda — not an Acura — badge. It is badged as a Honda in Japan because the Acura brand is not sold there.

Edmunds says: There is some media speculation that Honda may bring a version of the S660 Concept to the U.S., but with a bigger engine.

    The looks of this concept are fine! But if Honda is going to do a FWD sports car and it should, make this car on a Civic Platform! Make it a cross between the CRX and Del Sol. Del Sol meaning the cool power down rear window and removable roof panel(s) that stow in the rear. Then of the same Civic platform a true 2 and 5 door Hatch that competes head on with the GTI and MS3
