The Acura Automobile Division today announced the introduction of the 1995 Legend Sedan and Coupe automobiles.
The 1995 Acura Legend Sedan is available in three luxury models: the fully equipped L, the more elaborately equipped LS, and the top-of-the-line GS. The 1995 Acura Legend Coupe features two models: the L and the LS.
"The Acura Legend GS offers more luxury features as standard equipment than any automobile in its class," said Rich Thomas, Acura executive vice president- general manager. "Luxury car owners continue to recognize the outstanding quality, value and prestige of the Legend, making it the top-selling luxury performance import automobile in the category."
The Legend is available with either a 200- or 230-horsepower, 3.2-liter, 24-valve, aluminum alloy, V-6 engine. An advanced, three-stage Variable Induction System increases torque throughout the engine's operating range, and Programmed Fuel Injection (PGM-FI) helps to ensure efficient operation under all driving conditions.
The engine/transmission package of the Legend is longitudinally mounted to achieve the ideal 60/40 weight balance for a front-wheel-drive performance luxury car. A racing-inspired, double-wishbone suspension, front and rear, delivers precise, responsive handling combined with excellent ride comfort.
A precise 5-speed manual transmission is standard on the Legend Sedan L, while an electronically controlled 4-speed automatic is available as an option and standard on the Sedan LS. The Legend Sedan GS and the Legend Coupe L and LS are fitted with either a 6-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission.
Four-wheel disc brakes provide impressive stopping power, and a standard Acura-designed Anti- Lock Braking System (ABS) helps the driver retain steering control during hard braking. The Legend Coupe LS and Legend Sedan GS feature a Traction Control System (TCS), which monitors wheel slip and helps the vehicle maintain traction and control.
The elegantly styled Acura Legend Sedan and Coupe were designed for aerodynamic efficiency, incorporating clean lines to penetrate the wind with a minimum of turbulence. Details such as nearly flush glass and minimal gaps between body sections help reduce wind noise and increase fuel efficiency.
The configuration of the unit-body chassis incorporates specific crumple zones to help lessen the impact on the occupants in the event of a collision. All Legend models feature driver's and front passenger's air bags and automatic seat belt tensioners as standard equipment.
All 1995 Legend models feature a power tilt and telescopic steering system with memory function that operates in conjunction with the 8-way power driver's seat. The Legend Sedan LS and GS and the Legend Coupe LS also include a 4-way power passenger seat and heated front seats.
Full moquette upholstery is standard on the Sedan L model, while soft-finished leather seating surfaces, door-panel inserts, and trim are optional. Leather-trimmed interior is standard in all other Sedan and Coupe models, while burled walnut accents the center console and armrests of the Sedan LS and GS and the Coupe LS models.
Interior comfort is assured in all weather conditions by a high-capacity air conditioning and heating system standard on all Legend models, with an Automatic Climate Control System standard on Legend Sedan LS and GS and Legend Coupe LS models. A power moonroof is standard on all 1995 Legend models.
The standard Legend audio system features a fully electronic Acura/Bose®Music System with AM/FM stereo/cassette and 8-speakers with an FM diversity antenna. LS and GS models feature a state-of-the-art Acura/Bose®Premium Music System with eight speakers. All Legend sound systems have an anti-theft feature as standard equipment. A multi-disc CD changer and hands free cellular telephone are also available as dealer-installed options.
Acura, the number-one-selling luxury import nameplate, has achieved an excellent reputation for quality and reliability. All Acura automobiles are protected by a 4-year/50,000-mile limited warranty and a 5-year unlimited-mileage corrosion warranty. A nationwide network of nearly 300 dealers offers a full line of Acura models.
