The Honda Prelude is a sports coupé that was produced by Japanese automaker Honda from 1978 until 2001. The two-door coupé was loosely derived from the Honda Accord and spanned five generations. The Prelude was used by Honda to introduce the Japanese Honda retail sales chain called Honda Verno, with the Prelude shortly introduced later internationally.
The Prelude name was originally trademarked by Toyota, but was amicably given to Honda for use. The Prelude was the first in a series of vehicles from Honda with musically related names, with the Prelude being joined by the Quintet, Concerto and Ballade.
The Prelude was on Car and Driver magazine’s annual Ten Best list ten times: three times from 1984 to 1986, and then seven times from 1992 to 1998, although the biggest complaint over much of the Prelude’s lifespan was the lack of availability of a V-6 engine option, especially in the US.
