Seller's Comments.

***SPORTS COUPE – VTiR - GREAT TO DRIVE – RWC – WONDERFUL CONDITION ***

The fifth generation Honda Prelude sports coupe seemed to be a let down when it launched here in 1996, but no one was disappointed when it came to the driving experience. The Prelude was anything but ‘boring’ once you climbed behind the wheel.

The Car
With its large unbroken surfaces, soft lines, and square headlights either side of a grille slot it appeared to have more in common with the third generation coupe than it did with the one it followed. For some it was too much, others reserved final judgement for the drive, after all it’s the drive that matters most in a sports coupe.

Honda’s change in styling direction was based on sound research which showed that the fourth generation failed to excite the market in the way the third generation had.

The research also showed that Prelude buyers wanted room for rear seat passengers and more luggage space.

So the new model was 35 mm longer in the wheelbase, 25 mm higher thanks to a taller roof line, and 105 mm longer overall. All of that equated to a more comfortable ride for those consigned to the rear seats, and a larger boot for the luggage they wanted to take with them.

Along the way Honda’s engineers were able to increase the rigidity of the body, using thicker sheetmetal, more spot welds, more cross beams and heavier load bearing members, along with redesigned side sills and rear bulkhead. All of which added up to greater safety and reduced noise, vibration and harshness.

Rear seat passengers would also appreciate the changes made to the rear suspension mounts, along with the reinforced wheel houses, both of which helped cut annoying road noise.

The Engine:
This Prelude comes with the 2.2-litre double overhead camshaft 16 valve four cylinder units with fuel injection and the VTEC variable valve timing system.

The hot Prelude VTiR gives you a sizzling 143 kW VTEC engine.

Transmission is the slick shifting five-speed manual gearbox.

On the road the Prelude has wonderful poise that inspires the sporty driver, particularly when coupled to the fabulous VTEC engine.

There are also plenty of standard features. Starting with ABS, power steering, alloy wheels, cruise, central locking, power windows, and a four-speaker sound system.

With the VTiR you also get air-conditioning, a leather trimmed steering wheel, and a power sun roof.

Expect
Little trouble is likely with the body and trim, Honda build quality ensures they’re stitched together pretty well.

Safety
Earlier Preludes were rated average in the recent used car safety survey, but increased structural integrity, dual door beams, and a full width crossmember through the dash should mean improved crash protection on the fifth generation model.

Dual airbags also add to the Prelude’s overall safety picture.
