For the sport coupe Prelude, the 1999 model year contains slightly more potent engine power with a manual transmission. After two years on the market, the CR-V sport utility vehicle receives a more powerful engine. Still propelled by a 2.0-liter power unit, the 1999 Honda CR-V is influenced by 147 horsepower.
