    I thought the Legend already had this?

    But there are improvements made Graham, the Legend we had didn't have all this
    < Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) system >
    The monocular camera detects the lane boundaries, and if the vehicle is likely to stray from a detected lane, the system will give a visual warning on the display and vibrations on the steering wheel. In addition, the system will apply corrective steering input to bring the vehicle back in the lane. When the system forecasts that the vehicle is straying too far off, the system will apply braking force to prevent the vehicle from driving off the road.
    < The world’s first*2 Pedestrian Collision Mitigation Steering System >
    The millimeter-wave radar and monocular camera detect pedestrians and boundary line on the side strip of the road. When the system forecasts a collision with a pedestrian as a result of the vehicle straying from the lane toward the side strip, it provides audio and visual warnings and turns the steering wheel toward the other direction to facilitate the driver’s collision avoidance effort.
    < Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow >
    The millimeter-wave radar and monocular camera detect the distance and speed gap from the vehicle ahead. The system controls the acceleration and braking operations so that an appropriate distance will be maintained. By expanding its range of operation to 0 km/h, the system will reduce the burden on the driver while driving on congested highways.
    < Traffic Sign Recognition >
    The monocular camera detects traffic signs. The system calls the driver’s attention to traffic signs and assists safe driving by displaying detected signs on the Multi-Information Display or Heads-Up Display System.
    < False Start Prevention Function >
    The Millimeter-wave radar detects vehicle directly in front or other objects in close range while the vehicle is stopped or while driving at a very low speed. If the driver presses down the acceleration pedal too suddenly while there is an object in front, the system prevents sudden acceleration and provides audio and visual warnings and vibrations to the acceleration pedal.
    < Lead Car Departure Notification System >
    The millimeter-wave radar detects when the car directly in front starts up from standstill traffic. The system will give audio and visual notification of the departure of the car in front.

    Some pretty advanced stuff in there and being Honda quality controlled electrics I'd expect it to be very reliable.

    I do remember reading an article or seeing a video about the current Legend where the adaptive cruise control and lane depart would only work for up to 15 seconds at a time. Something about the lawyers at Honda being worried that if it lasted any longer and an accident occurred it could be claimed that it was Honda and not the driver actually driving the car! lol You couldn't make it up!

    That's a clever system. Will we get it in the UK?

    Doubt it as their is no premiere product to display these technologies, these were first seen on the Accord then the pleb classes. No premier class now.
