Honda’s technology-packed Legend will make its European debut in Geneva next month, ahead of a spring 2006 launch in the UK, when it should be priced at around £35k. The car is packed with features such as Super Handling All-Wheel Drive (SH-AWD), a 4x4 system that can transfer up to 100 per cent of power to the outside rear wheel to help cornering. Power comes from a 291bhp, 260lb ft 3.5-litre V6 — the only engine in the range. The car has Adaptive Intelligent Highway Cruise Control and Lane Keeping Assist (a lane departure warning system), along with the Collision Mitigation Braking System, which will apply the brakes and pre-tighten seatbelts if it predicts a collision.

Keyless entry, ventilated leather seats, voice-activated sat-nav and swivelling headlamps also feature.

Our Verdict

Nissan Pathfinder

The Nissan Pathfinder is a tough large SUV, but no Discovery. It's spacious but unrefined

  • Jaguar E-Pace P300
    First Drive
    19 November 2017
    Jaguar’s second SUV faces up to the Audi Q3, BMW X1 and Mercedes-Benz GLA. Tough task, so is the E-Pace up to it?
  • Jaguar E-Pace D180
    First Drive
    19 November 2017
    Not the driver’s car many would hope from any car wearing the Jaguar badge, but the E-Pace is an attractive and interesting addition to the compact premium SUV ranks
  • Subaru Impreza
    First Drive
    17 November 2017
    The fifth-generation Subaru Impreza is much improved from top to bottom, but a poor engine and gearbox keep it trailing in this competitive class
  • Ford Fiesta Vignale
    First Drive
    17 November 2017
    We get a first taste of Ford’s poshest Fiesta in turbocharged diesel form
  • Seat Arona
    Car review
    17 November 2017
    Seat is on a roll but can the Arona, its new junior SUV, cut it in such an ultra-competitive class?
