Possible prelude successor?

I doubt it would be called the prelude, but the car should be close enough to be considered it.

I'd like to see another Prelude...ish Honda. But I'm personally sick of this hybrid crap. Just gimmie a normal car. But we aren't the majority, and I know why they're going this route.

what replaced the prelude, the rsx, the accord v6 coupe or nothing?? if the rsx replaced it (i know it really was supposed to replace the integra in our market region), does that mean the current civic si is the new prelude?? :? :o :lol:

:lol: :lol: . I hope the Si isn't the Prelude replacement. And to be honest, I don't know what replaced the 'Lude. The RSX was basically the Integra. I think the TSX was just a more luxurious Civic with a higher price tag(don't know the numbers so I'm just gonna guess since its an Acura).

Essentially, the RSX replaced the Prelude (along with the Integra, but keep in mind that in other markets they kept the Integra name), whether it can be considered a worthy replacement or not. The TSX is too big to be a luxury Civic, even though it is listed in the same size category as the RSX on wikipedia. It has a 2.4 litre engine which you'd never find in a Civic sized body (Nissan could do it with the Sentra but not Honda; I think Honda's better overall nonetheless despite Nissan's more commendable focus on performance). In other markets the TSX was the Accord. In canada at least, they had the EL which was a luxury Civic. I always laughed when I saw them.
