I know that Preludes '88-'91 are all the same body style/generation, but what are the small interior/exterior differences between them?

general body style is the same...

88-89 then 90-91 differences

tail lights, fog lights, turn signals.. just look!! much of the interior is the same.. engines? in 90-91 they added .1 making all the Si models 2.1 (why they didn't have an emblem of 2.0 Si b/c it wasn't anymore!)


1988 Honda Prelude 2.0 Si


1989 Honda Prelude 2.0 Si


1986, 1988, 1989 2.0 Si's


1990 Honda Prelude 2.0 Si

u mentioned that in 90-91 they were 2.1L, and u said thats why they no longer said 2.0 on the rear. however, in the pictures u displayed, the 90-91 WAS in fact still a 2.0, and it displayed 2.0 as well on the back. just trying not to confuse aaron hansen.

as far as i have always known, they were 2.0 til 92, when they switched to 2.2/2.3.



later

To correct (for USDM):

88-89: 2.0 was all that was available, in S (carbed) and Si (injected) trims.

90: The 2.1 was added under the badge "Si." The 2.0 was still available as the 2.0Si. The 2.0S model was still available (carbed). ABS was optional on the Si ALB model.

91: The 2.0S (carbed) was dropped. The 2.0Si and Si (2.1) models were still available. The Si ALB model is still offered.

4WS available all years, but only on the Si (2.1) in 90-91. VTEC was never offered here in the 3rd gen (I think it was in Japan in '91). 92 was the first year for the 4th gen and the 2.1 was no longer used in the US after that.

Another odd note, in Europe and I suspect Japan, ABS was offered on the Si model on the 2nd (!!!) gen in '86 and '87.

BTW, this is all taken from Honda brochures.

Not a problem. The 3rd gen probably changed the most in the shortest amount of time. They change a lot, at least in little stuff, and overseas they get a bewildering choice of engines. At least we got the good one that year : )

Anyone know if the '91 in Japan or Europe got VTEC? I've heard that, and have been curious. Don't have a JDM '91 brochure... yet!
