Review: Honda Legend (2006 – 2009)

Rating:

Plush and crammed full of advanced technology. Five-star crash test rating. Capable of driving itself. Surprisingly quick, and very comfortable.

The lawyers would not allow Honda to release its self-drive system so this disengages ever 15 seconds or so.

Alternative to Honda Legend?

What current production car would you suggest as an alternative to the Honda Legend? I like the technology but the fuel consumption is out of fashion. Is there a direct equivalent with the reliability?
A lot of the Legend tech is now in the Honda CR-V, so I'd recommend that.
