What means 'Sterling'?

Probably just the name of the dealership the car came from. Sometimes car dealers put their own badges on the backs of cars, though I think it usually looks tacky and I wouldn't want it on a car I was buying.

Sterling Honda is a Honda dealership - certainly in Ontario, Canada.

My dad once had one of these, it was white and had a snubbed spoiler on the boot. The badge under the tail lights on the right side said 2.0i 4WALB 16v (or something). A lot of Accords of that generation that I've seen in Britain usually have badge saying EX-something.

I thought Sterling was a make in the US that made clones of Rovers.
Honda -> Rover is not so far...

Sterling (a joint venture between Rover and Honda) did make cars for the US in the '80s, but they only made one car. It wasn't a clone of a Rover IIRC, but a rebadged Acura Legend.

It was the Rover 800, which was jointly developed with Honda and was the counterpart of the Legend.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rover_800
Quote The Rover 800 was intended as a replacement for the aging Rover SD1. The car was developed in collaboration with Honda in the early 1980s under the XX codename; the corresponding Honda version was known as the Honda Legend, and was codenamed as HX. Both were produced in the former Morris plant in Cowley, Oxfordshire.

Quote The only Sterling model that was sold was the 800 series, which was a rebadged Rover 800-series but with different specifications developed exclusively for the American market. At first, the saloon body-styled 825 (trims L or SL) saloon was being sold. In 1988, the hatchback replaced the saloon and was called the 827 (trims SL or SLi)

In the US it was Dx, LX, LX-I and eventually SE-I,which had leather seats.
