Just in time for Christmas, Honda’s dropped the all new, 5th generation Inspire.

The new Inspire features styling cues seen on the new USDM Accord, and a V6 3.5-liter i-VTEC engine featuring a Variable Cylinder Management (VCM) system. The VCM enables cylinder switching (based on driving conditions) between 6, 4 and 3 cylinders.

The V6 produces 206kW (280PS) of power and 342N?m (34.9kg?m) of torque while maintaining emission levels 75% below 2005 Japanese government standards.

Other features include

  • Collision Mitigation Brake System (CMBS)
  • ABS (Anti-lock Brake System)
  • EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution)
  • G-CON (G-force Control) technology
  • VGR (variable steering gear ratio)
  • Intelligent, dual fully automatic air conditioner (uses GPS information and a sunlight sensor to determine the direction and intensity of the sun?s rays and regulate temperature and air output accordingly.)
  • HID (High Intensity Discharge) Headlights

Unfortunately, the Inspire is only available in a 5 speed automatic transmission.
