2020 Honda Insight Overview

The Honda Insight is a compact hybrid sedan similar to the Toyota Corolla Hybrid. It debuted last year and goes fundamentally unchanged for 2020.

Every Insight comes with a 1.5-liter engine, a continuously variable transmission (CVT), and dual motors. Together, they produce 151.5 horsepower. Honda includes Econ, Sport, and EV modes for different types of driving. Fuel-economy ratings for the LX and EX trims are the same as last year: 55 mpg city, 49 highway, and 52 combined. The Touring trim returns 51, 45, and 48.

You can get the Insight in three trims: LX, EX, and Touring. The LX trim comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, LED taillights, keyless start, a 6-speaker audio system, and a 5-inch LCD. The EX trim comes with an 8-inch infotainment system, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, keyless access, remote engine start, an 8-speaker audio system, and satellite radio. Finally, the Touring trim comes with leather upholstery, heated front seats, a power moonroof, WiFi hotspot capability, a 10-speaker audio system, 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, power front seats, navigation, and LED fog lights.

Honda Sensing, the company's safety system, comes standard on every Insight. It includes adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, traffic-sign recognition, and road-departure mitigation. EX and Touring trims come with LaneWatch, which includes a camera feed of the car’s right side that makes parking and changing lanes easier. The Touring trim comes with rain-sensing wipers. Last year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded the Insight with a Top Safety Pick+ award.

Honda's Insight continues to be one of the most efficient ways to carry five people.
