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.
