The 2017 Honda Legend will come refreshed. According to some reports, company will make some modifications on this full-size sedan next year. Since this model was released last year, it might sound a little bit early for a mid-cycle refresh. However, this model is actually a renamed version of Acura RLX, and it is offered exclusively for the Japanese market. Since RLX was released in 2013, next year might sound realistic, when it is about refresh. However, we don’t expect to see a true mid-cycle update, but more like some smaller modifications in terms of exterior look and maybe some new features.
2017 Honda Legend specs and features
As we mentioned, 2017 Honda Legend might come with some smaller modifications. However, we are pretty sure that this won’t be a true mid-cycle refresh. Base characteristics of the car will remain unchanged. We will see the same design, with same platform and other details. Main thing about this update will be probably in terms of exterior changes. Company might make some smaller tweaks. So, 2017 Legend could come a little bit improved in terms of visual appearance. We could see a slightly revisited “jewel eyes” headlights and tweaked grille. More than that is not expected, especially on the other areas of the car, such as rear end, for example.
2017 Honda Legend interior
When it is about interior, bigger changes are not expected. The 2017 Honda Legend will probably come with the same design of the cabin. Even some smaller tweaks on the dashboard are not expected. However, we expect some improvements in terms of features. It is hard to expect some new hi-tech systems, but improvements of the current ones seems more likely.
