Acura 3. In Japan, all three models were sold as Honda Legend. The first generation Acura RL was a significantly revised version of the third generation Honda Legend, and was first introduced in the North American market in , replacing the second generation Acura Legend. These cars appeared on the North American market in September Subsequently, in the model year the car received significant facelift, and an update in The third generation of the car was introduced in as the Acura RLX.
First generation In , Acura introduced the Acura 3. Acura removed the Legend name for its models after a market survey, which showed that consumers are familiar with Acura products, and so it was not necessary to associate the model names with Honda. The car received a longitudinally installed V6 configuration engine, which distinguished it from most front-wheel drive cars in which the engine was installed transversely.
At the end of , the car underwent facelift, with integrated fog lights, upgraded bumpers and a hood, and airbags for the driver and front passenger also appeared. The suspension became stiffer, new alloy wheels became available. In , the salon was renewed. In particular, a large screen appeared for the navigation system, maps to which were viewed through DVDs. In , a sport-tuned suspension and a forced engine became available, the power of which was increased to liters. At the same time, additional noise insulation was added to the engine compartment.
In , optics was renewed, the design of alloy wheels was replaced. The model was the first serial sedan with satellite radio in the base configuration. The engine that was installed between and was the last in the Acura line, not using a system with variable valve timing VTEC. This 3. It was replaced by a newer Honda V engine configuration V6. It works with the active differential of the rear axle and regulates tractive effort to improve the handling of the car.
For , the SH-AWD was the first full-drive system to distribute power not only between the axles, but also between the rear wheels, using a technology called vectorization of torque. This process can be compared to the control of an ordinary rowing boat: if you turn on an external paddle in rowing, it will lead to a quick turn with the minimum understeer characteristic for vehicles with a heavy front end.
In the second generation, RL uses the newer J-series engine with 3. To add a more sporty character to the car, the Drive-by-Wire servo drive and a five-speed sequential automatic gearbox with shift paddles were used.
For the first time for RL, aluminum four-piston front brake calipers were used on These calipers, taken from racing cars, are extremely tough. Behind, Compared to the first generation, these wheels are one inch larger in diameter, and the tires are 20 mm wider.
On the model, a keyless access system appeared, allowing the driver to block the car doors by touching the door handle, without using the key directly or a remote control. The audio system in the cabin included ten speakers from Bose. Satellite radio, with integrated control technology via Bluetooth, has the ability to recognize voice with more than voice commands for controlling the navigation system and display, wireless phone, audio system, heating and ventilation.
Heating and air conditioning systems are connected to a light sensor and GPS positioning, so the temperature in the cabin remains constant in any situation. Based on the position of the sun and the orientation of the car, the system can automatically supply additional cooling when driving in the sun and vice versa.
Among other new RL options, we can note an active head lighting system that directs the luminous flux with the steering wheel. LEDs LED replaced the traditional lamps at the back and on the turn indicators built into the side mirror casings, as well as in the interior lighting. Also in the model were used atypical for its price category materials. Among them, an aluminum hood, front fenders, trunk lid and frame, front and rear subframes, suspension levers.
Details of magnesium were used in the intake manifold. This model RL had a very low drag coefficient of 0.
