The Honda Concept C was a concept presented at the Beijing Auto Show last year in April. CarNewsChina.com reports that the production model will be flown to the Shanghai Auto Show which begins on the 20th of April.

The Concept C is a mid-size saloon designed to sit under the Honda Accord and just above the Honda Civic. The car will be manufactured by the Guangzhou-Honda joint venture which makes the Accord for China. Powerplants that are being reported are 1.8-liter and 2.0-liter petrol engines married to a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic transmission.
