What Car? says

3 out of 5 stars

For The Prelude has screaming engines, pin-sharp handling and bags of grip

Against It's got bland American styling, and the cabin is especially boring

Verdict Buy a well maintained Prelude, and you’ll never regret it

Go for… 2.2 VTi Motegi

Avoid… 2.0i Sport Auto

Honda Prelude Coupe
  • 1. The automatic gearbox has caused some problems and those fitted to the 2.2-litre car suffered most
  • 2. Light-coloured metallic cars are generally more popular than darker shades
  • 3. The cabin is not the most exciting place to be, but it's very solidly put together
  • 4. Make sure that the four-wheel steering system on VTi models is adjusted properly
  • 5. The boot is a fair size for a sporty coupe
