Honda Prelude S Reviews
The Prelude, the alluring 2 - door coupe is definitely a favorite among lovers. It provides everything you have come to expect from the Honda and adds a touch of style, handling and functionality.
It comes packing a 200 hp motor (195 for automatic-filled versions) from the naturally-aspirated 2.2liter, fourcylinder motor.
The Prelude hasn't changed much from this past year. It's obtainable in two versions: the Base as well as the Type SH. An Active Torque-transfer System (ATTS), a rear spoiler plus a leather change are the extras that include the superior version.
The sole alternative is really a fourspeed automatic transmission with consecutive sportshift, that is only accessible in the base version. Other than that, all Preludes come full of alternatives for example air-conditioning, power sunroof, windows, door locks, and mirrors.
You're also treated to heated seats, cruise-control, side mirrors, and a quite adequate 120watt, 6 - speaker audio system. Whenever you get to the freeway or open up the sunroof, you should not need to turn up the air.
All Preludes provide brilliant handling, thanks to a complex fourwheel doublewishbone suspension which has progressive valve shocks along with a broad, low stance with great weight distribution.
This is really a car that pumps out 200 horses, redlines nicely in the 7000s, but does not want a tuneup until 100,000 miles!
Additionally, it produces really good fuel-economy, with 22 mpg in town and 27 on the highway with the shifter. The automatics shed one mpg on both counts.
keep it spinning
One disadvantage to the engine is the reality which you really have to possess the revs up high to acquire some real juice from it. It's really a great thing the glossy-shifting transmission feels like butter, which makes it a joy to skip up and down the gears.
I figure you receive the feeling this isn't just a roomy family vehicle. Consider this as a twoseater with a few space within the rear of the cottage. Contemplating this coupe is fairly long and broad, it makes you wonder where all the space went. In advance, there aren't any room problems, but if you really must take several buddy, browse the Accord Coupe.
for the young at-heart
Regardless, 1 on the marketplace for this kind of vehicle shouldn't be and normally is not focused on backseat relaxation. The bulk of 'Ludes are offered to young, single folks, yet to start a family of their own.
Besides those few problems, the Prelude provides delightful trip, good styling and stress-free driving. As I mentioned before -- it does everything we have come to anticipate from a Honda, and just a little extra.View PhotosView Videos
