Honda Legend - Second generation (KA7/KA8, 1990-1996)

The next generation model was introduced October 24 1990, and continued to offer both a sedan and coupé. The Rover 800 was not updated to the new stage, and instead continued with the old XX platform. In Japan, this Legend was also recognized as the "Super Legend" due to the much larger 3.2 C32A engine, which was now the only engine offered in the Legend. The Type I engine was rated at 215 PS (158.1 kW; 212.1 bhp), and the Type II was rated at 235 PS (172.8 kW; 231.8 bhp) and included with the touring system.

This Legend benefited from much of the research and testing done for Honda's new mid-engined high performance sports car, the Honda NSX, and the Legend was used as a test platform for new NSX technologies and research. Honda introduced a passenger side airbag on this model, and used off-set collision testing to improve collision performance and safety.

Trim level designations were changed to "Alpha" for the top level vehicle, and "Beta" for the lower grade. No other trim levels were offered. The "Alpha" was very well equipped, offering ABS, leather or 100% wool coquette upholstery, projector beam headlights, and dual-zone air conditioning. source: wikipedia
