The Inspire is made in China by the Dongfeng-Honda joint venture, as a replacement for the aging Honda Spirior. The new Inspire is based on the 10th generation Honda Accord having a different front and rear-end styling.
Initially the Inspire Sport Turbo version will be launched which is powered by a 1.5 liter turbocharged engine with 194 hp & 260 Nm mated to a CVT gearbox. Whereas a naturally aspirated 2.0 liter and a PHEV version called the Sport Hybrid will be launched later on. The 2018 Honda Inspire Sport Turbo will hit the Chinese car market in October.
