2009 Honda Legend
Honda revealed the redesigned 2009 Legened, European version of the Acura RL. The most noticeable change is to the exterior style of the Legend, with new lights, bonnet, front wings, boot lid, bumpers and the adoption of standard 18" wheels.
Under the hood Honda placed a new 3.7 liter V6 engine that has VTEC added to the exhaust valves, joining the system already fitted on the inlet side. These realised a 20% increase in torque in the mid-range. The engine is coupled to an all-new 5-speed gearbox.
The new Legend can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.1 seconds, 0.2 seconds quicker than before. Fuel economy and CO2 have also improved over the previous model, despite the improved acceleration performance.
