TCC Rating
How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

The S2000 is back, evergreen as always, and the big news for Honda’s rear-drive, two-seat roadster for 2008 is the addition of the “club-racer inspired” S2000CR.


The new CR edition, shown off earlier this year at the New York auto show, is a trim level on the S2000. Honda promises that it will take the two-seater's performance to "an entirely new level."


The S2000CR is a lighter, stiffer spin on the stock car, meant to boost its appeal to weekend racers. It’s been engineered to give better track times, and better chassis balance and feel, Honda says.


How they get there is a raft of changes including a full-body aerodynamic kit that reduces lift via large front and rear spoilers. The CR edition also gets a quicker steering ratio, high-performance Bridgestone tires, firmer suspension settings, a thicker anti-roll bar, and new wheels. Additional bracing in the storage area adds to body rigidity, and in place of the S2000’s soft canvas top, the CR uses a lightweight aluminum hard top that cuts weight by about 90 pounds.


Inside, the CR gets distinctive cloth seats with yellow stitching, a new aluminum shifter knob and carbon-fiber lookalike trim panels.


Standard on all S2000s for 2008 are stability control, ABS, and 17-inch wheels.


The S2000 has been on the market since 1999. The roadster has a 237-hp, 2.2-liter four-cylinder, coupled to a six-speed manual gearbox, stability control, drive-by-wire throttle, and an engine start button.
