If you liked the prelude SI you will love this car. It builds upon and improves on everything that made the prelude (back in its day) fun and special to drive. Great handling in the mountains, fun to drive, and suitable as a daily driver. Engine and 6-spd transmission add to the enjoyment. Much more fun to drive than the Accord EX coupe.
How the car comes together, engine, handling, interior, seating, simply a very well put together car.
A 3rd seatbelt in back would be nice on those rare occasions you need to cram 5 people into it (i.e., wifes minivan in the shop!).
