1987 Honda Prelude

The 1987 Honda Prelude, the last in the landmark second generation Prelude, remained unchanged for the model year.

The base 1987 Honda Prelude came with a 100-horsepower, 1.8-liter four cylinder engine. The Si upgraded to a 2.0-liter. It also had a spoiler and plenty of interior features, like power windows and doors, cruise control, and a graphic equalizer on the sound system.

Drivers say the 1987 Honda Prelude is fun to drive, lasts forever, and looks good. The only complaints are about the tiny back seat and lack of cup holders.
