It's a quiet year for the Honda Insight. The Insight EX and Touring models now come standard with a blind spot warning system and rear cross-traffic alert, two safety technologies we highly recommend. There's also a new color for 2021: Radiant Red Metallic. See the 2021 Honda Insight models for sale near you
The least expensive Honda Insight, the Insight LX, is equipped better than you might expect. In addition to smart cruise control and automatic emergency braking, the LX has a 5-in touchscreen, lane-keeping assist, dual-zone automatic climate control and ambient LED console lighting.
More standard features come on the midevel Insight EX. These include an upgraded 8-in touchscreen, a 160-watt audio system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a blind spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alert.
A leather interior, heated front seats, onboard Wi-Fi and an even more powerful stereo system (180 watts) are standard equipment on the Insight Touring.
Options on the Insight EX include 17-in alloy wheels and a package featuring several blacked-out styling elements. On the Insight Touring, dark finish 17-in alloy wheels are available, as is a chrome exterior accent package.

2020 Toyota Corolla Hybrid -- The new Corolla Hybrid has a similar cost of entry -- $23,100 -- and great fuel economy, but the Insight feels a class above.
2020 Toyota Prius -- This benchmark hybrid might have unusual styling, but the Prius also has outstanding fuel economy and Toyota's legendary reliability.
Used Toyota Prius -- If you can find one that hasn't been snapped up by an Uber driver, you'd be wise to consider a used Toyota Prius. We see some 2016 models priced in the teens.
Used Honda Accord -- Older Accord hybrids are hard to find because they weren't that popular. But for between $12,000 and $17,000, you can have a nicely equipped Honda Accord. It likely won't be a hybrid, but it's less expensive than a new Insight and is a nicer car all around.
