Honda Insight Overview

The five-passenger Insight uses Honda's mild hybrid system, and fuel economy is an impressive 38 mpg overall. Though it's less expensive than the Prius, it's also less roomy and noisier. Handling lacks agility and tends to get sloppy at the limits. A stiff ride and awkward rear-cabin access are further demerits. For 2013 the Insight got larger tires and suspension tweaks in an effort to improve the ride. The onboard computer scores your driving economy as an incentive to go easy on the throttle. In the end, however, the Insight scores too low to be recommended. 2014 will be the last year for the Insight.
