1999 Honda Prelude 2dr Coupe


This car is excellent for those looking for something fun. Although the interior is bland and the car is a portly weight, it's mostly a silent killer. A little heavy to take 90 degree turns with ease, but if you take it on a curvy backroad, you see its true power. Take it on a sharp curve at speeds even a WRX would be scared of and the Prelude laughs at the curve and eats it for breakfast. Interstate driving is like a cakewalk for this car, easily passing any car with a quick downshift or two. Stop- and-go driving is a little boggy but still spirited. Also very quiet! The added reliability and high-quality materials make this car a smart buy for anyone wanting something fun!

Best Features

Vtech makes the car scream at high RPM's, Tiptronic shifting is gimmicky, but useful while racing and fun when just taking it out on a backroad cruise. With a good head unit, the speakers rock with clarity and have impressive bass. Lower than 90% of factory cars, improving handling.

Worst Features

More radical styling inside and out, MAKE IT LIGHTER!, upgrade to a five speed automatic and maybe even a convertible version! Could be a good candidate for the next sports-hybrid production model.
