Car Profiles - Honda Legend

HONDA LEGEND

Bring back a not-so-legendary name while going to a territory which established rivals dominate is what Honda did today. Underneath the hood is an Earth Dreams engine with hybrid technology coupled to an all wheel drive system plus amenities which places some rivals to shame. Price may be too expensive for an "ordinary" brand but for those who aren't snobbish, this is the one.

The Good: Advanced technologies packed into one
The Bad: Not for the brand snobs

Price Range: P4,385,000
