Surely this Prelude is a further step to strengthen Honda's reputation for building relatively small sporty cars of the top class. However, this began with still clumsy design in 1979, but has increased with the help of pop-up headlights in the second and third generation.

Not only by returning to conventional light and softer front is now succeded a jump again by the fourth generation. So it will go further and sometime Honda will primarily loved from America's youth not so much because of cost and reliability, but because of pure joy on the performance.

So this Prelude is an intermediate step in this direction. What you can do with four cylinders in line, the Honda has shown not only successfully for two-wheelers. Here one offers two of it, one newer than the other. It has 2.3 liters and is still designed with a long stroke at this already relatively large single displacement. However, the rated speed is still in very solid spheres. The high torque confirms once again Honda as an master of engines.

Who already deals with switchable intake manifolds and variable resonators at the time? After all, tubular manifolds are known for some time. If already an engine will redesigned, its block should be of light metal. After all, there are cast-in cylinder liners made of fiber-reinforced metal. And just not at the very bottom, but where they belong, are arranged the balancer shafts driven by the same toothed belt as the camshafts.

In view of the highlights we have to hurry, eg with this automatic transmission something unusual. Actually it is a converter manual transmission. But it has a clutch for each gear and is thus to change automatically. Or the delicate-looking suspension, which was acquired from the predecessor. You can nearly see its efforts to little disturbing forces at simultaneously low unsprung masses.

Completely new is the electronic rear wheel steering (Figure 2), which after a long time forgotten, is now relevant again. It was mechanically coupled to the steering wheel at the previous model, wherein almost everyone has wondered how such a thing is possible. Because even at that time it steered with, respectively against the front axle depending on the turning angle of the steering wheel. Now, in the electronic solution can be considered the speed of the vehicle and even the steering movement. 10/13
