The Prelude exemplifies a time when
Honda was still building cars to a
specific engineering goal and not to a
price-point. The cabin materials are
first-rate, with comfortable seats,
good visibility, all amenitites a
serious driver needs, and nothing he or
she doesn't. The handling and ride
still are the standard for the FWD
sport-coupe class. The brakes are
better than the average Honda's, as
The Prelude's appeal is how the
suspension, brakes and jewel of an
engine work so seamlessly together. It
is a tool for carving corners, but is
also quite pleasant for long trips.
Excellent power from VTEC engine, will
easily cruise at 160 kph for extended
periods. Will accelerate to 240 kph+
top speed with ease. Very stable and
quiet at high speeds. Cornering
ability is excellent with extremely
precise steering. Beautiful styling,
sleek, very distinctive while avoiding
tacky swoops and flares that plague
this segment. Canadian SE package
includes leather seats - heated!,
heated mirrors , type SH wheels,
carbon fibre dash trim is very nice!
Love the leather! Excellent
transmission, smooth and precise
shifting. Brakes are top notch and
very fade resistant. To drive this car
is to have a permanent smile on your
face, so much FUN!
VTEC at 5200 rpm!WOW! Exhaust sound!
Beautiful to look at, fun to drive!
Bring this platform back to life now!
Awesome chassis and suspension, the
best! After owning this car for 3
months I am dumbfounded why, how Honda
could let this car slip away. An
absolutely excellent design, excellent
chassis, and wonderful engine!
