Drive & Handling

The Honda Insight features a two-motor hybrid system: an electric motor that powers the front wheels and a second motor that charges the lithium-ion battery. These two motors in harmony with an aptly-sized 1.5-liter i-VTEC® engine combine to offer fuel efficiency and consistent performance excellence. The 2020 Insight can operate in three modes: electric-only, gasoline-only, or a combination of gas and electric. In EV mode, the Insight can cover up to one mile using electricity alone. Assistive driving features like Eco Assist™ System and Hill Start Assist make your drive even more effortless.

Key Features

Honda LaneWatch™ Sees What Drivers Can’t

All Insight models are equipped with Honda LaneWatch™ to increase visibility and reduce crash risk. When you use your right-turn indicator, a rear-facing camera mounted below the passenger-side mirror will capture an image of what is in the blind spot to the right of the car, relaying it to your infotainment screen. Even if you’re not turning, pressing the LaneWatch button activates the camera, letting you know if you can safely move to your right.

Crisp and Clear 8-Inch Infotainment Screen

Inside the Insight EX and Touring trims is an 8-inch infotainment screen with an intuitive interface along with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. Based on previous-owner feedback, Honda added a volume button back into the mix for easy access, which makes it that much simpler to sing along to your favorite tunes on the road.

Alternative Options

Love the size of the Insight but want an all-gasoline engine? Take a look at the Honda Civic, which offers the fuel economy its customers have always loved in a delightfully modern design. Need something a little bigger? Honda’s Accord Hybrid will give you more leg room along with the safety and efficiency you expect in a modern hybrid.
