2020 Honda Insight vs the competition

2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid - We're not sure what took so long for Toyota to build a hybrid variant of the Corolla, but it's finally here with 2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid, and it's the Insight's closest competitor. They're similar in terms of size, fuel economy and price, and they're both worth a test drive.

2020 Hyundai Ioniq - The 2020 Hyundai Ioniq is another hybrid that is priced similarly to the Insight, and this hatchback is even more efficient, which makes it an attractive option for frugal shoppers. The Hyundai also has a superior warranty.

2020 Honda Accord Hybrid - Bigger, more powerful and even more refined, the 2020 Honda Accord Hybrid is pretty much just a nicer Insight -- with a heftier price, of course.

Used Chevrolet Bolt - Why not consider a certified pre-owned electric car for the same price as the Insight? The well-executed Chevy Bolt is starting to trickle into used car inventory, and it provides more than 200 miles of range and impressive performance.

Autotrader's Advice

Given the refinement, space and equipment you get compared to other low-priced hybrids, the base Insight represents tremendous value. That said, for only an extra $1,380, the EX trim adds an abundance of desirable features, including a fold-down rear seatback and Honda's latest touchscreen interface with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Every Insight is a great value, but we think the EX is in the sweet spot. Find a Honda Insight for sale
