The Honda Vigor is Acura's mid-size sedan sold in Japan and the United States from 1981 to 1995, and was replaced by the Acura TL/Honda Saber. The Vigor started out in Japan only in the early 1980s as an upper trim level Accord. With later generations the Vigor moved upmarket and received a shared platform with the luxury oriented Honda Inspire: its engine now sat longitudinally as in the second generation Acura Legend. In Japan during the early 1990s, there were five sedans between the Civic and the Legend: the Honda Accord, Honda Ascot and Honda Integra with 4-cylinder engines mounted transversely, and the Vigor and Inspire with 5-cylinder engines mounted longitudinally. The Vigor was sold at Honda Verno dealerships in Japan, and the Honda Inspire was sold at Honda Clio dealerships.

Third generation (CB5/CC2 & CC3)
At the launch of the fourth generation Accord, the Vigor was no longer based on the Accord chassis. The third generation Vigor was shared with the new, longer Honda Inspire and the new Honda Legend. The Vigor was sold in the United States and was badged as the first generation Acura Vigor in 1992.[1] The Honda Inspire was not yet introduced to the USA until the next generation was introduced in 1995, and sold as the Acura 3.2 TL, with the Vigor sold as the Acura 2.5 TL. In Japan, the Vigor competed against the Toyota Chaser.
Production began in 1991[2] and the vehicle went on sale as a 1992 model in June of that year, slotting between the Integra and the Legend.
Honda's 2.5 L longitudinally mounted 5-cylinder petrol was the only engine available. The engine was placed behind the front axle and the transaxle was integrated into the lower half of the engine.
Honda, Acura's parent company, anticipated that the market would move toward small, well-equipped sports sedans akin to the BMW 3-Series and that a less expensive but well equipped alternative to the BMW would be a strong seller; the Vigor was the result of that thinking.
