Driven: The New Honda Legend

Now for those who don’t know what the Honda Legend, its Honda’s high-end Accord (or the RL version of Acura) for the people who want some styling and advanced technological features. The Honda Legend runs on a 3.5 liter V6 engine pushing 290 horsepower with 259 lb-ft torque, giving the car the ability to do 0-62 mph in 7.3 seconds. The transmission on the Honda Legend comes in a 5-speed automatic rear wheel drive with paddleshifting, not to mention the “Super-Handling” Honda is bragging about. Now who’s going to by this £39,000 Honda over a BMW 5-Series, Audi A6 and Volvo S80?

Well true Japanese car fans who really can’t stand Lexus or Acura’s for that matter. Or those looking for reliable and affordable gadgets and gizmos in a car. The Honda Legend is the first Honda to get night vision driving which will help spot out citizens, animals and other cars. The Legend is also equipped with Honda’s LKAS lane guidance system that scans the road markings and steers the car for you. Now that’s the type of technology that BMW, Audi or Volvo’s have not pioneered as of yet.

But still who will buy the Honda Legend over a BMW, Audi, Acura or Volvo? Even Honda is admitting that it only expects to sell 400 units annually. Nonetheless, we think the Honda Legend is worthy of appreciation.
