Click above for a gallery of the Honda Zest Spark

Honda apparently decided that its home-market Zest Sports wasn't zesty enough. Away it went to the plastic surgeon for a freshened look with more flavor. The result is the Zest Spark. Instead of basically carrying over the base Zest's vanilla look up front, the Spark gets a new fascia with a V-shaped grille/lights combo hovering above the car's big, flat bumper. 660cc NA and turbo kei-spec engines reside underhood. Inside, it's basic kei car stuff, with seating for five four that can be arranged in an optimal date night configuration. Yeah it's small, but it's practical, see?

      They can keep this in Japan.

      Are the Japanese really that tiny, or are their roads really that narrow? I've never understood why most Japanese JDM vehicles (even some that make it here) seem so tall and narrow.

      Will there be an AWD version called the All Spark?

      It's boxy enough.

      Seating for five? Are you including the onboard car navigator?
      Kei cars are only licensed to carry four.

      Why do these cars have to be so damn ugly?

      My Scion tC had that "date night" seating arrangement. But it turns out that girls are less than impressed when you bust it out. Go figure.

        Why do you need it? Get a hotel room.
        • 6 Years Ago
        my wife and I have used ours (in the tC) at the drive-in, far more comfortable than normal seats. maybe you just need a better pickup line than "hey babe, want to check out the back seat, since I'm hoping we end up there by the end of the date anyway?"

      I'm on vacation in Old San Juan and this type of car makes a lot of sense in the narrow streets of this beautiful city.
