Aiming to make an impact on the country’s luxury car segment, Honda Cars Philippines, Inc. (HCPI) launched its next-generation hybrid sedan: the Honda Legend 3.5 Sport Hybrid Super Handling All Wheel Drive (SH-AWD).

Born out of Honda’s “Smart Exhilarating Luxury” concept, this new flagship model boasts high-level craftsmanship, combining three customer values—pride and prestige of ownership, advanced features and technology, and exhilarating driving experience.

The 5th-generation Legend comes with state-of-the-art driving technology. This sedan is powered by a V6 3.0L direct injection VCM engine and a 7-speed dual-clutch transmittion. The Honda Legend is also fitted with an integrated high-performance electric motor and a rear twin motor unit to maximize mileage, stability, and gas efficiency.

Convenience and safety are given importance with functions such as the new driver assist system called the Honda SENSING, which provides services like Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Low Speed Follow (LSF), and Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS).

The Legend is also fitted with a touch-screen dashboard, digital navigation system, and an HUD that can show the driver the car’s SH-AWD system operation, tachometer, and speedometer. Other safety features include Vehicle Stability Assist, Hill Assist, parking sensors, an emergency stop signal, and a pop-up hood for pedestrian safety.

Aside from its high-tech performance, the Honda Legend boasts aesthetic appeal. It has eight Jewel-Eye LED headlights with 16 focused lenses for better visibility and 19-inch noise-reducing alloy wheels.
