The 2016 Honda Legend will be one of the key players in the segment. This full-size sedan was presented as big comeback last year in Japan. We didn’t see this nameplate for almost two decades. However, those who are from United States will easily conclude that there is nothing “all-new”. This model is pretty much re-badged version of Acura RLX, which is a luxury sedan designed primarily for North American Market. Last year company introduced Honda Legend, which is offered for domestic market. The biggest novelty is that 2016 Honda Legend will be also offered in Philippines. Other remains pretty much unchanged.

As we mentioned, Honda PH will expand its offer. This name was planned only for domestic market, but now company wants to expand its offer in Philippines. The 2016 Honda Legend for this market will come pretty much the same as Japanese one. It is pretty much the same car as Acura RLX, which came few years earlier. These models are identical in all aspects. Even when you look on car’s exterior design, it is hard to find any difference, except different logos. Front fascia is completely the same.
