The 2021 Acura Legend is a mid-size luxury / executive car manufactured by Honda. Acura Legend was the first flagship sedan to be sold under the Acura label until it was renamed the Acura RL. The Acura Legend (Acura RL) series was the North American version of the Honda Legend. Legend and Honda’s Acura division’s initial success in competing with luxury manufacturers in Europe and America led Toyota and Nissan to create Lexus and Infiniti brands, respectively, to compete in the luxury car market.
Some of the things North American legend Japan has to offer, such as automatic one-touch climate control and a 100% wool fabric interior in brown, are not provided. The blue interior was shared with Japan and North America, but no brown color was offered in North America, and “sand gray” was offered instead. The exterior colors were tailored to only one interior color choice and no leather was offered. As a success at the Honda Legend, it has served as a source of inspiration for the Subaru Legacy, which has shared many similarities and dimensions in interior and exterior.
Legend has been a very successful vehicle in the production of the Acura as a separate division, and along with Integra sales, Acura has long sold luxury BMW and Mercedes-Benz routes, as well as Toyota’s new luxury division, the Lexus. Still, Honda executives felt the Legend label was overshadowing the Acura brand in the United States, as well as other luxury marks like the Mercedes-Benz and BMW, which used alphanumeric characters, so the third-generation Legend sedan is celebrated as Acura RL for North America. Although the Legend sedan replacement was sold in North America as the Acura RL for two generations and then in the Acura RLX, Honda continues to sell it as the Legend in most parts of the world.
Acura RL and Acura RLX never had the commercial success that the original Legend led; In Acura sales in the early 2000s, the Acura MDX crossover was dominated by the 3-row SUV and the Acura TL front-wheel-drive sedan, while the RL made a small contribution, while the Legend marque accounted for 40% of sales. The early years of Acura. It can be said that the renaming of the Legend to the RL, as well as Honda’s refusal to adopt the rear-wheel-drive mode of the front-engine, which describes the most expensive luxury cars, has hurt sales of the 2021 Acura Legend and other Acura passenger cars.
