Zeil am See, Austria - The new Honda luxury flagship Legend will be available in European showrooms from October with extensive safety and comfort features, the Japanese car maker announced.
All the extras and options are inclusive for a price of 54,600 euros (69,577 dollars) including two-zone climate control, electric windows, seats, mirrors and doors, a glass-hub sliding roof and rear- view camera, DVD-Navigation, leather upholstery and DVD.
A new innovation is the four-wheel drive with variable drive in the two rear wheels to improve stability and roadholding in curves, according to Honda technicians.
Among the safety equipment is ESP, six airbags, xenon curvature lighting and an active bonnet system that lifts automatically when colliding with a pedestrian to increase the distance between the collision zone and the engine block.
The car is driven by a 217 kW/295 hp V6 motor with shift paddles placed next to the steering wheel. Honda lists acceleration at 7.3 seconds from zero to 100 km/h with the top speed regulated at 250 km/h. Fuel consumption is 11.9 litres. © 2006 dpa - Deutsche Presse-Agentur
