During the 1990s I travelled out to Japan on business alot,staying for 4 weeks here and there,staying with friends,touring round,having a good time.I noticed how cheap the cars were and with the strong pound on my side is wasn't long before I started buying cars to use back home,why not? When the Honda Prelude was on sale in the UK,it was marketed as quite an expensive upmarket car well above £20K+ I quite liked it,some prefered the older model with the XJS type rear lights and futuristic cabin so maybe this was a step backward in style? To me it was more grown up,not such a kids car and may suite my girlfriend as she had sold on her old Audi. I looked around a few ... Read the complete review

I have owned a Prelude 2.2VTi from new, since end 1999. The car is one of the latter models, with 197BHP (the older 2.2 VTi had 183BHP). Standard equipment includes electric windows, electric sunroof, electric, heated mirrors, air conditioning, cruise control, heated seats. This model came with 17" 5-spoke alloys, a boot spoiler and the very unusual active four wheel steering. Life with the Prelude has been mostly good. The performance is very impressive and like other hot Hondas, it can see off many more expensive cars. 0 - 60 time is probably not much over 7 seconds (most figures in the press are for the older ...

I've only one word for this car, absafantastic! Since the purchase of the car on Friday, I don't think I'll look at any other car in the same way again. Compared to my old Rover 400, the steering is fantastic, it holds to the corners like it was using glue and the speed is outrageously great. My model is the 2.0i and it has automatic and 4-speed gearbox. The performance has been much better than I anticipated. I got it as a company car, and have been extremely pleased with it. It does use a fair amount of petrol, but I think it’s worth it. It's probably also worth mentioning that when you really put pedal ... Read the complete review

I've had my 1998 2.0i Prelude 2 weeks now and I am still thinking of excuses to give the missus why I want to go out...all the time! This is my first automatic and I find there is a lag in acceleration, around 2 secs, but once it picks up and the noise from the exhaust turns from a rumble into a growl at around 4.5k rpm, you can forgive anything! I paricularly like the Sports Sequential Shift, useful when overtaking as you don't seem to get the lag that is experienced when you use "kick-down". This is something I'm still experimenting with. The interior at the front is roomy and very comfortable. The powered steering is light and precise. ... Read the complete review

It comes packing a 200 horsepower engine (195 for automatic-laden models) from a naturally aspirated 2.2-liter, four-cylinder engine. This means no turbocharger, no supercharger, and no nitrous -- just plain Honda technology blasting you from 0 to 60 in 6.7 seconds. I have only driven this car for about 30 mins at a Test drive open day where I live, but I must say it was the smoothest, ride I have every taken. The test drive was on a field yet I could not feel one single bump or deep in the grass, thanks to the super shocks on this car. The power steering is brill, you only have to decide for yourself which way you wont to go then the car almost drives itself ... Read the complete review
