For around 20 grand,
IN PHOENIX, ARIZ.
T he Insight is back with more power, a more practical de-
sign and a new mission as the most-affordable gasoline-
electric hybrid on the block.
The original Insight, available from 2000-’06, was a fuel-sipping
marvel. Unfortunately, its two-passenger capacity kept it in niche-
you don’t need

to be green
market territory, while Toyota’s category-leading Prius four-door
hybrid hatchback stole the show. Meanwhile, Honda briefly tried
marketing an Accord hybrid and continues to sell a similar Civic,
but still trails the Prius by a considerable distance in terms of
Honda is now pinning its hopes on a brand new Insight
squarely aimed at urban professionals seeking great fuel economy
while helping protect the environment. The Japanese-based au-
tomaker also hopes to appeal to the fearlessly frugal by keeping
the sticker price in the $20,000 range (the actual price won’t be set
until closer to the Insight’s launch on Earth Day, April 22).
As with the similar-looking Toyota Prius, the Insight has been
designed for maximum practicality as well as fuel efficiency. The
cabin feels particularly roomy and the storage space beneath the
hatchback beats the current Prius by about 14 percent (Toyota will
launch an all-new and enlarged Prius later this spring).
Although the Insight is a dedicated hybrid, which means it’s not
merely converted from another Honda model, its basic structure
has been lifted from the entry-level Honda Fit and the view out
the generously sized windshield is virtually identical. However,
the car’s aerodynamically shaped nose helps it more efficiently
slice through the air, which increases fuel economy.
Motivating the Insight is an 88-horsepower 1.3-liter gas engine
functioning with a 13-horsepower electric motor for a net total of
98 horses. By comparison, both the current Prius and the Honda
Civic hybrid are each rated at 110 horsepower.
The power system is connected to a continuously variable trans-
mission (CVT) of a type favored by most hybrid manufacturers.
Fuel economy is estimated at a respectable 40 mpg city, 43 mpg
highway and 41 mpg, overall. However, dash-mounted monitors
encourage drivers to beat these numbers. The gauge display in-
cludes an “Eco Assist” speedometer that changes background color
from blue (inefficient) to green (the most fuel efficient), depending
on your driving style. When questioned why orange or red wasn’t
