The Insight's best attribute is its fuel efficiency.
We measured a phenomenal 54 mpg overall, which bests the Toyota Prius' 52 mpg.
But the Insight doesn't achieve similar success in other CR evaluations.
Honda based the Insight on the Civic, and because of this the hybrid has some of the same quirks, as well as ones found in other Hondas.
For better or worse, the Insight doesn't scream hybrid.
