ASM Exhibition Model(Prototype)
Why should a minivan be less than luxurious? The futuristic, oval-shaped ASM, designed in the image of an ocean cruiser, is for those who demand the finest things in life. Thanks to a low floor, the ASM accommodates eight in comfort, for relaxed freeway travel or elegant city driving. Featuring the latest iteration of Honda's IMA system, the powertrain combines a V6 engine with Variable Cylinder Management, for driving pleasure plus environment-friendliness. The double-wishbone suspension delivers enhanced driving performance and superior occupant comfort. From innovative packaging and design to a highly efficient powertrain and leading-edge Collision Mitigation Brake System (CMS) safety technology, the ASM is the essence of advanced technology and uncompromising quality.
Advanced, dynamic oval-shaped exterior
The exterior design suggests the dynamic lines of an ocean cruiser. Gracious curves form the oval-shaped body of this elegant, efficient saloon minivan.
The interior: an ocean cruiser's lounge
The wood-paneled interior has the sophisticated atmosphere of the lounge on an ocean cruiser. Ambient LED lighting creates a relaxed mood, and a sliding 10-inch monitor for second and third row passengers makes the inside of the ASM a great place to spend some time.
Honda's latest environment-friendly IMA technology: quietly powerful
The V6 engine features Variable Cylinder Management, for enhanced fuel efficiency in highway cruising, and a motor assist system to supplement the engine's performance as required. This latest advance on Honda's IMA system delivers both high output and clean performance, along with a smooth, quiet ride.
