Honda Motor Co., Ltd. announced it would begin sales of the
all-new Legend flagship sedan at dealerships across Japan on January 22, 2015.
The fifth-generation Legend features Sport Hybrid SH-AWD (Super handling all
wheel drive), which comprises three electric motors. Featuring a gasoline
engine, a single front motor and twin rear motors, the hybrid system
automatically combines front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive
with EV Drive, Hybrid Drive or Engine Drive to respond continuously to driver
inputs and driving conditions and ensure optimally efficient performance.
The twin rear motors provide drive and deceleration power to
the rear wheels in any ratio. This revolutionary torque vectoring technology (A
mechanism and control system that controls the distribution of torque to the
left and right drive wheels) delivers highly stable handling in every type of
driving and refined driving comfort that exceeds expectations for the Legend's
class. At the same time, the Legend's advanced hybrid system offers fuel
economy of 16.8 kmpl.
The all-new Legend also features the advanced
driver-assistive system Honda Sensing which can help the driver prevent or
effectively respond to dangerous driving situations, thereby making the driving
experience safer and more enjoyable. Among other functions, Honda Sensing includes
the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) and the world's first Pedestrian
Collision Mitigation Steering System, which is designed to help prevent
collisions with pedestrians.
