What's the used Honda Prelude coupe like?

We're going to let you into a little secret - under the rather bland styling of the Honda Prelude lies a great coupe. It should put a smile on your face every time you drive it and, because it's a Honda, it'll be a cold day in hell before anything goes wrong with it.

Hondas don't make too many demands on their drivers, and this Prelude is no exception. Like the previous model, it combines an excellent ride with razor-sharp handling and loads of grip. In its most potent guise, it had 197bhp, and could go from 0-60mph in 7.5sec.

The build quality cannot be faulted, and although the cabin is not the most exciting place to be, it should remain rattle- and squeak-free. The back seats are only just big enough for adults, so it's really a 2+2, but the boot is a fair size for a car of this type.
