2021 Honda Legend launches in Japan with Level 3 self-driving tech

Acura stopped selling the RLX in the United States after 2020 but the flagship sedan is still available in other markets where it’s sold by Honda as the Legend.

Honda on Thursday unveiled an updated Legend for the Japanese market and one of the car’s key features is an electronic driver-assist feature rated at Level 3 on the SAE scale of self-driving capability. Level 3 means a car that can handle itself in certain conditions, enabling the driver to let go of the steering wheel and even look away from the road for moments at a time.
