Well, those are both good reliable cars. So it's really up to you. But if you're looking for one with a stronger motor, then go with the Civic SI.

honestly do your home work, what do you want in a car the civic is lighter and more then likely smaller and save more gas like around 31 mpg while as the prelude has around 26 mpg (both freeway) but the accord is bigger and you will more than likey have to watch the civic 24/7 since its stolen more than the prelude cant tell you how many of my friends/ family have gotten their cars broken into or stolen all civics. me i chose an accord, prelude too much hp around 198 hp and gas civic everyone has one and broken into all the time. DO Home work on the motor also i chose to get mine with the f22b1 that comes stock with sleeves problably going to turbo it just because i can. but you never know what kind of defect stock cars have... in all if you want power go for the prelude with an h22 motor anything less dont... civic si has some power saves gas but will more than likely get broken into or stolen your choice
