This description is taken from the PAL version of Gran Turismo 2:
The Prelude, which was popular for it's sporty ride although it was a specialty car with a graceful design, evolved further from that model when it entered its 5th-generation in November 1996 after a full model change. The previous generation had a design based on organic lines, but this time the basic theme was sharper lines, characterised by a return to an overall tailored design. A frontal view with large, strange-looking headlamps, and a neat side profile succeeded in producing a unique ambiance for the car. There were two types of 2.2-litre in-line 4-cylinder DOHC engines specified for this body type; the same type F22B as the previous generation, and the H22A, but this time in the VTEC spec two types of tuning were provided, and a total of 3 engine types were also provided. Firstly, the engine mounted in the basic Si model was the F22B, generating 160ps/20.5kgm. The engine mounted in the sporty SiR was the VTEC spec H22A, generating 200ps/22.3kgm. Then, added new this time in the Type S - based on the SiR but with a more polished ride - was the H22A unit, producing 220ps/22.5kgm. Moreover, there was a new feature added to the transmissions mated with these engines; the 5-speed manual transmission remained the same, but in the auto 'box the S-Matic system was employed, a sub-gate was provided in the D range allowing manual operation. The suspension was the same front/rear double-wishbone set-up as in the previous generation, with tuning optimised depending on the engine specc'd. The ride gave a feeling of higher quality than that of the previous generation, and among the models, the ride of the Type S was sensational. Not only did the engine (boosted to 220ps) give a great feeling of power, the sound was also quite strong. Furthermore, through the newly-adopted ATTS, although it was an FF car, it achieved good handling during cornering. The performance limits and steering stability were both improved.
