1983-1991 HONDA Prelude II/III


Overview

The second- and third-generation Preludes were far more convincing cars than the original, mainly due to being priced more realistically and receiving engines with more power. When it appeared in 1983, the sweet 1.8-litre Prelude was offered with Honda’s excellent in-house anti-lock brakes and responsive optional automatic ‘box. The later cars also boasted four-wheel steering, an ‘80s fad that didn’t take off, despite having real advantages. In a decade that Europeans were starved of new coupés, the Prelude was a welcome and idiosyncratic addition to the market.
