    For all those Legend lovers waiting in the wing for their dream car, this should kick start your imagination for that one special day.


    Honda Legend Brochure

    The brilliant SH-AWD system which will one day see light on other Honda's.

    That video shows nicely how SH-AWD works.
    But, i havent found anywhere explanation how that SNOW (there is button for that on the dashboard) mode effects to the system.
    manual says only that it helps when it is very slippery and it is on when driving straight and the speed is under 80 or 100 km/h (don't remember exactly).
    Feels and seems that it is providing power only between rear and front axles, not between individual wheels, just like rear and front diffs were locked.

    legend coupe all the way. What a beautiful car. I had the chance to buy one but opted for a mr2 (i was 19). Now that i'm a little bit mature (27) would have a legend over an mr2 any day of the week

    Threads like this are a nightmare! Have now also been looking at Legends online...but really fancy an old 4x4...along with lots of other cars (some nice old Preludes around, always liked those). So tempting...

    ...but under pressure to get a new kitchen instead of (another) car.:Aghast:

    For the eagle-eyed members in that clip SH-AWD prototype testing where based on Accord chassis :Smile:so Honda could have given the car this technology if they wanted.

    Please Honda on the 9th Generation bring this technology back.

    Honda do a 4WD Accord and did the 7th Generation with 4WD, here's one having a play in the snow

    I would love a Legend, the running costs wouldn't really bother me as I only do 4k a year. However as getting all my fishing tackle in the 7th Generation Tourer is a bit of a squeeze without dropping the seats it's a non-starter :Sobbing:

    Haha, that's funny to watch, I'm sat here thinking hmmm my car couldn't do that at all LOL

    4WD would have been handy with the winter we've just had.
