The Honda Insight uses both a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine and an electric motor, managing to produce 107 horsepower. The car comes with an Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission which acts similarly to an automatic transmission. The quick acceleration allows for smooth driving on city streets and highways, and the sturdy multilink rear suspension combined with Honda’s agile handling help the Insight take on winding roads with ease.
Fuel efficiency is an important aspect of a hybrid car. Thankfully, the Insight’s fuel efficiency gives it an EPA-estimated 55 city and 49 highway MPG.1 With those kinds of numbers, you’ll be gliding your way to your destination without any unplanned stops along the way.

The Insight can seat up to five people, and the standard upholstery for the seating is cloth. Leather seats are optional in most trims and are standard in the top-tier Touring trim. Heated front seats are also available. The front seats are comfortable and offer plenty of legroom with 42.3 inches, while the kids will enjoy 37.4 inches of rear legroom.
You’ll find the cargo space more than adequate for bags of groceries or several suitcases for a vacation. While the Touring trim has 14.7 cubic feet of space in its trunk, the other trims have a maximum capacity of 15.1 cubic feet. You can also fold the back seats down to fit bigger items, like a TV or camping gear.
