Had actually forgotten, that Triumph / Honda also had their own “ ARNA” .
As far as I remember, this car was identical to the Japanese build Honda, which was sold on the continent as the “Accord Sedan”.
If I am not mistaking, Honda build their models in the UK, naming them “Triumph” and “Rover” for the UK market, in order to by-pass the EU rules on maximum import from Japan.
Good news was of course, that it must have put food on the table for a lot of UK factory workers. The down side was, that it totally destroyed what was left of the Rover and Triumph brands in the rest of Europe.
I think, that the “Acclaim” must have replaced the Triumph Dolomite, which I thought back then, was rather cool.
Also thought at the time, that the first Accord-model actually was a bit hot,
but this Acclaim / Accord was absolutely not.
Seriously uncool for me.
