1989 Honda Prelude Overview

The Prelude had just been redesigned the previous year, and so Honda's sporty coupe remained the same for the 1989 model year.

The 1989 Honda Prelude came in three trims: the base S model, the midrange Si, and the 4WS. The S had a 2.0-liter, 104 horsepower engine. The Si and the 4WS both came with a 2.0-liter, 135-horsepower engine, which was Honda's most powerful engine to date. The Si and 4WS were both well-equipped with things like power windows. All Preludes had a sunroof. Fuel economy was about 23/27.

Drivers are very enthusiastic about the 1989 Honda Prelude, even today. Some even say it is the best car they have ever driven, citing the handling, comfortable seats, and sporty looks as their favorite features. Many drivers wish for more power, and some complain about the tiny backseat.
