Inside the vehicle, which was unveiled at this year's Paris Motor Show, the entire centre console is now wood, the steering wheel is fitted with radio and cruise control switches, and for the first time the driver's electric window has one touch opening and closing. Other additions include slide-out cup holders and an accessory power socket in the illuminated central storage box under the centre armrest.
Standard equipment carried over from the existing Legend includes a climate control system, heated and electrically adjustable front seats, CD radio-cassette and leather interior. Safety features include 'smart' driver/passenger and side airbags, and seatbelt pretensioners.
Honda says it will announce the price of the new model in mid-January, but promises only a small increase on the existing £34,100 on-the-road price tag. It will go on sale in February of next year.
