2009 Honda Legend comes with new engine with additional 200cc of capacity to now 3.7 litre V6. The bigger engine gives greater torque across the whole rev range, while 20% increase in torque in the mid-range. The engine performance is also supported by VTEC system that added to exhaust valves, joining the system already fitted on the inlet side. The result is increasing power as well as better acceleration.
2009 Honda Legend’s new engine is mated to 5-speed gearbox that helps the driver exploit and enjoy the revised power unit. The new box has switched to a straight gate and empowers the driver with additional control over gear selection with revised steering wheel mounted paddle-shifters and new gearbox software. The new transmission works faster to changes in driver input even in the normal automatic mode and so gives the driver access to power when it’s most needed.
