Why the Honda Insight May be the Best Hybrid for You

Honda Insight

Voted the Green Car of the Year by the Green Car Journal in 2019, the Honda Insight takes a leading position in the hybrid sedan market. This full-size sedan offers amazing gas mileage without compromising on other important categories, such as comfort, safety and electronics.

A Closer Overview Under the Hood and Inside the Cabin

The Honda Insight's hybrid powertrain is a prime example of ingenious automotive engineering in the 21st century. Borrowed from previous years, a 1,498 cc engine block burns gasoline with some assistance from the i-VTEC valvetrain. Filled with lithium ion, the standard battery pack works in tandem with a front-mounted electric motor. When all hybrid components work in sync, this efficient sedan gets nearly 200 pound-feet of peak torque. The exclusive e-CVT creates custom shift points for truly efficient driving on any paved road. Boasting a 55 MPG rating in the city, this hybrid Honda sedan appeals greatly to urban drivers who want to cut their fuel expenses on a weekly basis. A 49 MPG on the highway is a great rating that urban commuters should also appreciate.

More Highlights

There are many more highlights in the Insight besides just efficiency. For example, this imported sedan boasts an entire suite of standard active safety features. With reliable assistance from the Honda Sensing technology, you'll be more aware of driving hazards behind, beside and in front of you. For instance, the Collision Mitigation Braking anticipates the slightest risk of a frontal collision with another decelerating car. If you get drowsy or distracted behind the wheel, the Road Departure Mitigation will immediately issue the appropriate alerts. The RDM comes on instantly if the wheels roll into the shoulder or median of a road.

The Latest Digital Apps

This hybrid Honda sedan also has lots of appeal for tech-crazed drivers with high demands for the latest digital applications. Android and Apple integrations are standard in the EX and Touring editions, and hands-free wireless technology comes standard in all trims. The hybrid powertrain also won't be strained by the 450-watt audio system with 10 speakers. You can turn on WiFi, SiriusXM Satellite Radio and the GPS navigation system without worrying about high electricity usage under the hood.
