Styling on the new Insight is slightly more conventional than in previous versions. It isn't immediately recognizable as a hybrid, though looking closely reveals a sloped rear end which provides excellent aerodynamics. Instead, the styling more closely resembles the current Accord, but with a touch of the slightly less conventional Civic thrown in as well.
Inside, the Insight boasts a large interior that is even bigger than the one in the Civic, with a large 7-inch display dominating the center stack. Honda claims that the Insight has class leading rear seat room, making it a great car for people who regularly use the back seat, but who still need something with a smallish footprint.
The Insight is available in three trims: LX, EX and Touring. The base LX comes with plenty of features as standard, including Bluetooth streaming audio, a rearview camera, three drive modes, 16-inch alloy wheels, LED automatic headlights and taillights, a 160-watt sound system with 6 speakers and Honda Sensing, which includes a suite of safety and driver assistance technologies.
The EX replaces the center display with a bigger 8-inch unit while also replacing the stereo with an 8-speaker system that includes Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other features included in the EX are SiriusXM Satellite Radio, Honda's LaneWatch system, a remote engine starter and a smart key.
Touring models get a navigation system, rain sensing wipers, LED fog lights, a power moonroof, powered and heated front seats, leather trimmed seats and 17-inch alloy wheels. The Touring also comes with dual-zone climate control and some additional exterior chrome to brighten up the styling a little bit.
