First generation of Acura

The Acura Legend produced by Honda came to be sold in the United States, parts of China and Canada as a full-size luxury car under Honda’s lavishness brand Acura. The first generation of Legend sold from 1986 to 1990 was as both coupe and a sedan. This was 1st flagship sedan introduced under the nameplate of Acura, although around 1996 this was renamed as Acura 3.5RL. The N. American Version of the Honda Legend’s KA9 series was named 3.5RL. The second generation took the market by storm between 1990 and 1995.

Voluntary export restraints in 1980s, which came as a result of negotiations between the USA trade representatives and Japanese government, made opportunity for Japan to export more expensive models, thus also restricting mainstream model car sales. It was only because of the success which Acura as a luxury brand and its product Legend brought in for Japan that later we had Nissan and Toyota creating Infiniti and Lexus brands respectively. This came after Acura proved its competence in the global market and that it could efficiently compete with the established brands of Europe and America. This model came into the market in 1985; its debut was held in Japan.

Acura sedans in market

The North American premier for Legend came in 1986 and got included as apex of the line products for the new line up of Acura. These sedans came with C25A V6, 151 hp, 2.5litre engine. The coupes on the other hand, coming in 1987, came with a 2.7litre C27A, 161 hp engine. Acura Legend was offered with a V6 engine, and this also made Legend the first production vehicle by Honda to come with this engine. The production of legend was initially an outcome of a joint venture which occurred in 1981 between Honda and Austin Rover Company of Britain. The project was titled XX and it commenced after an official signing of the Austin Rover-Honda XX. This starting replaced the previous Rover SDI project and works on developing a comfort model for Honda began.

The reason behind the venture was the established reputation of Rover in UK and all over Europe, which was confirmed even more so after its production of Rover P6. Honda wished marketing a vehicle which was well suited for both Japanese and the America’s domestic markets. Thus came into existence, a result of the joining, Acura Legend. The corresponding vehicle to Legend became Rover 800- series which was beneath the brand Sterling in the U.S. This would become the one to compete with Acura Legend. A major reason behind Rover’s decision of joining hands with Honda was its desire of returning and with a bang to the USA market.

The success story of Legend is evident in the awards it won over the years of its conquering the automotive market. This includes winning Ten Best for three continuous years, an award by Car and Driver. Also landing in Acura Legend’s kitty is Motor Trend’s Import Car model of the Year for the year 1987. The manual equipped models offered were capable of displacing fro 0-60 mph in just about 8 seconds. The top speed reached by it was a good 135 mph (217 km/h). The coupes in the market had a drag coefficient of 0.30, whereas sedans boasted of a drag of 0.32.
