Disappointingly, the Honda Legend never really lived up to its name, despite being a hugely competent executive saloon that does most things well and nothing particularly badly. One stumbling block was that it lacked prestige – a necessity with executive cars – and Honda is not renowned for luxury cars. However, the Legend’s dynamics are fine, there’s a high level of equipment as standard and there is very little wrong that you can put your finger on to explain its relatively poor UK reception.
