Four-wheel-steering returned, but was an electronic rather than mechanical system. The $2,500 premium for 4ws discouraged most buyers. Honda abandoned the system after '94.
In 1994 the Honda VTEC engine with variable valve timing was added. This 190-horsepower engine lacked low-end grunt, but came alive above 5,000 RPM. All Prelude engines were smooth running, but the VTEC was especially sweet.
