Honda, the Japanese automotive company released Prelude as their sports coupe from 1978 to 2001 and it was launched with two-door layout. Its design was derived from Honda Accord and they produced for five generations. The production was stopped in 2001 when they introduced Honda Integra DC5.

Everything is still in form of concept and it has much better look compared to the previous model.

Exterior

You will see a total change on its outer design. The alloy and carbon fiber materials will be the main way to construct this new sports coupe to be lighter than ever. Some features will be retained but it has modern and sleek design to give sportier look. The well-defined lines and curves will be added for its entire body as the way to define elegance. Honda has a big effort to incorporate the old boxy Prelude design to be admirable, sleek and sporty. 2018 Prelude is also possible to have heavily redesigned front bumper in sharp look as well as the grille. The headlights and air intakes will be revised too. Rumors mentioned that it has slightly prominent wheel arches as well as new side skirts. The redesigned back part will be completed with LED tail lights, functional diffuser on the rear bumper and the 19-inch of alloys together with brakes and sport tires.

Interior

To give more comfortable and convenient design, the interior of 2018 Honda Prelude will be redesigned. It will borrow some pieces from Civic Type R as well as Accord but it has roomy cabin with comfortable seating design and small cargo space. The seats are well built to provide enough headroom and leg room to support tall or short driver. Besides, it has high technology features because it is important to complete it with rich technology devices since Honda will revive the old car that has been gone for 15 years.

Engine

Engine wise, rumors mentioned that there are two possibilities. First, it will be 2.0 liter V-TEC turbocharged engine to provide 250 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque power. This engine will be mated to six-speed manual transmission system. The next is V6 engine and 3.5 liter to create 315 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque with the use of six- or eight-speed auto transmission. Likely, it has limited slip diff as well as all-wheel drive but everything is still based on concept and speculation. Even it can be surprising if they will offer hybrid for 2018 Honda Prelude.

Release Date and Price

2018 Honda Prelude is still unknown for its exact release date but it would be good to come in the late of 2017 or in the early of 2018 with the price tag that should be around $33,000 to $36,000.
