Car video reviews:

Body style: Coupé (two-door)
Segment: Premium Coupe

While the luxury sedan market was already dominated by the Germans, the Japanese from Honda revealed the new Acura Legend Coupe, in an attempt to beat them at their own game.

The Legend Coupe offered a smooth ride with a fine acceleration and a comfortable interior. The coupe was driven by a 2.7-liter V6 powerplant developing 161hp. It was able to reach 60 mph in 9 seconds even with an automatic 4-speed transmission.
In comparison to the Legend Sedan, the Coupe had a lowered front end, a different roof line, more like the BMW way and different taillights.
The coupe was equipped with anti-lock brakes, thus allowed the driver to steer while braking enhancing control.

The centre console was positioned having the driver in mind, the gauges were basic and very easy to read.
The leather seats were firm and supportive, even if the lumbar support was adjustable for the driver only. The height seats adjustments could be made through manual control only.

The coupe had an automatic climate control that was very easy to use. The manual override buttons were hidden, giving a sensation of a simpler, clean console.

Surprisingly, the rear seats offered adequate room even for large passengers. And what was more unusual for a coupe, the rear windows were retractable.
The huge, flat trunk offered more than enough luggage area.

Safety wise, the coupe had SRS airbags, rear should belts and antilock brakes that came as standard equipment.
The car’s price started from $29,000 with the LS trim level.
