The front grille is similar to Alfa Romeo, using an inverted triangle that flowed into the front bumper, and a small Honda "H" logo at the top. The Rafaga also had a long and low front engine compartment, and a short trunk, adding to its aerodynamic ambitions.
The interior came with genuine wood panels on the dashboard and center console, with leather available as an option on the "2.5 S". In 1994, dual airbags for front passengers and ABS were available, as well as a glass moonroof.
As the recession began to take hold in Japan, and sales were focusing more on the Accord, the Rafaga and the Ascot were discontinued and replaced with the Honda Torneo in 1997.
