Benefits of Driving a 2012 Honda Insight Hatchback

The growing number of hybrids available means there is a lot of competition for green vehicle credentials. With the Insight's stylish looks, lots of interior space and Honda build quality, there's a lot to like. Honda calls upon its considerable experience producing efficient vehicles that maintain their resale value and continue to earn top marks in reliability to build the Insight-- giving hyper-efficient vehicles such as the Toyota Prius and Volkswagen Jetta TDI a serious run for the money.

What's new for 2012?

The 2012 Insight is essentially the same as the 2011, but now HID headlamps are standard across the lineup and Bluetooth is included on the EX model.

Model Strengths

  • Fresh styling
  • ample interior room for people and cargo
  • low price of entry for hybrid technology

Model Review

Honda revived the Insight name in 2010 in the form of a stylish, roomy hatchback featuring a hybrid electric powertrain. With an affordable entry price and lots of great features, the Insight has been an instant winner.
