i-SRS airbag system, i-side airbag system, and curtain airbag system are equipment on all types, along Honda’s original Advanced Engineering body, which a high level of protection to occupants while also to reduce the force of the impact on the vehicle during a collision. The also features Honda’s (Collision Mitigation Brake and E-pretensioners as standard equipment. determines if there is a danger of a collision and alerts the driver, functioning to mitigate injuries and damage in the event of a collision.

In to deliver the sort of direct feel and smooth ride one expects in a

luxury sedan, the new Honda Inspire features a developed suspension, along a lightweight, high-rigidity body for a center of gravity and reduced The interior design blends with advanced functionality. A range of accessories provide all the needed for a long drive, a relaxing, luxurious space transports the vehicle’s occupants in around town and on the freeway.

Newly developed V6 3.5-liter engine with VCM (Variable Management) system combines 280 horsepower output with fuel economy while

· The V6 3.5-liter i-VTEC engine high output of 206kW and high torque of 342N•m and make the new 2008 Honda the only domestic 3.5-literclass in Japan*4 to run on regular, unleaded

· The newly advanced Variable Management system, available for the time in Japan, switches six-, four-, and three-cylinder depending on the driving conditions. The runs on six cylinders during acceleration, and up hills, and on three while cruising. It can also run on cylinders when driving at high speeds or under acceleration—conditions under which the model would not have in cylinder idle mode—for fuel economy during driving.

В· The engine offers clean performance, and has been by the Japanese Ministry of Land, and Transport as having achieved levels 75% below 2005 government standards.

В· Active control engine are employed to cancel out increased when the engine is operating in idle mode. Engine is estimated and actuators located the mounts expand and contract the same phase and cycle to vibration.

В· Active noise is used to generate sound in phase to the engine drone when cylinders are idling. The to be attenuated is determined based on revolution pulses and a signal to the frequency is generated via an audio thus reducing the drone.

Advanced functionality for enhanced and comfort

В· A vehicle speed and distance control system reduce the burden on the driver freeway driving. It assesses conditions using data a millimeter-wave radar unit into the front grille of the that measures the distance to the ahead for up to 100m within a arc, along with from vehicle speed and yaw sensors. In addition to maintaining the at a set speed, this cruise system automatically regulates speed and distance depending on or not there is a vehicle in the same ahead.

В· The Honda Smart Key enables users to lock and the doors, open the trunk, and the ignition simply by carrying it on person.

· In addition to independent controls for occupants in the front the intelligent, dual fully air conditioner*6 uses GPS information and a sensor to determine the direction and of the sun’s rays and regulate and air output accordingly.
