    Will Europe be getting a new Honda Legend? Now that the Acura RLX has been launched in the US, perhaps we will see it rebadged as a Legend over here...

    No, it has been officially stopped for Europe due to poor sales. Which is well explained by Honda's very poor European marketing and lack of powerful diesel engine.

    Too bad, the RLX is one great looking machine, inside and out, and packed with technology... Would be a great alternative to BMW 5 series (for people who drive this class, not me) :Smile:

    I would like to see it but diesel is king in Europe, so will be surprised if it ever came.

    Yeah, but the new Earth Dreams 3.5 DI i-VTEC with Variable Cylinder Management is the kind of V6 petrols :Smile:

    I'm considering to get me a Legend as well. Exactly as you say - it is great alternative to Audi A6/BMW 5 but still, this class is dominated by diesels in Europe it had very, very poor sales. The problem was that not only there is no diesel, there are no other options as well - you get a single V6 engine, without alternative, with single equipment level, with quite serious price. And now combine this with the lack of marketing. I'm quite disappointed with Honda that they don't care enough for Europe :Frown:

    Hondas current line up is crap. There are no exciting models anymore.

    What do you class the Type-R ..Civic which apprently has been set the target to set fastest lap time for a FWD car at the ring.

    The rest will be made sport with a few go fast stripes stickers and badges ..:Rolf:

    You forget the new mini CR-V in the pipeline. I've heard rumours.
