Honda Legend Wins Japan Car Of The Year Award 2004-2005

The new Honda Legend has won the Japan Car of the Year Award for 2004-2005 and Most Advanced Technology Award conferred by the Japan Car of the Year Executive

The 4th generation flagship luxury saloon with a 300-horsepower engine features the world’s first Super Handling All-Wheel Drive system (SH-AWD). The model benefits from comprehensive weight reduction measures that combine to help contribute to significantly enhanced performance.

The new Legend also offers a range of advanced driver support technologies, including the world’s first Intelligent Night Vision System, which detects pedestrians during nighttime driving and provides visual and audio cautions to help prevent accidents.

Designed around three key concepts - distinctive styling, exhilarating driving performance, and superior manoeuvrability - the Legend delivers a new driving experience, providing greater luxury, comfort and safety in all driving conditions.

"We are extremely honoured that the new Legend was selected for the Japan Car of the Year Award 2004-2005 and Most Advanced Technology Award from among a big field including both domestic and import cars," said Honda’s President and CEO, Takeo Fukui. "We see this award as recognition of the efforts of our suppliers, development and production teams and the many people who have lent their dedicated support to us in the development of the Legend.

In the development of future models, we will even further strengthen the new "Driving Pleasure" concept that we have proposed in the Legend."
