    Acura Legend



    For 1986 model year Honda USA introduced new brand Acura, one of two featuring models was Acura Legend.

    1986 Acura Legend - Introduction
    The Legend is a performance luxury touring sedan with refined front-wheel-drive, a fuel injected, 24-valve, 2.5-liter V-6 engine and a choice of 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmissions.
    The overall concept of the Legend was as a functional driver's car that did not depend on unnecessary gimmicks and gadgets. This concept carried into styling where function and taste form the bases of the Legend's design. Its identity is clear and defined by simple yet elegant lines, and the design process itself was carefully coordinated from concept to production to make sure the car was correct in all respects. Special emphasis was put on ergonomics to minimize driver stress and fatigue.
    The Legend is aerodynamically efficient with a low drag coefficient a 0.32. Its body is wedge shaped with a low hoodline and angled windshield, flush headlights and bodywork, and minimal overhangs. Its interior is spacious, tastefully appointed, and specifically designed for a high degree of comfort at all road speeds.
