2021 Honda Insight: The Hybrid for Everyone

Are you interested in saving money on gas and helping the environment? But don’t want to drive a boxy, cumbersome ‘hybrid’? Well, you’d never know just from looking, but the 2021 Honda Insight is a hybrid! The 5-seater sedan is one of the longest running hybrids on the market. It was the the first parallel hybrid transmission powertrain to go on sale in the US and is not a hatchback. This efficient vehicle offers a standard car-driving experience, and that’s a good thing.

The inconspicuous 4-door sedan drives similar to the Honda Civic (read: faster), has a more refined interior and looks like a modern car on the outside. But you’ll get great gas mileage (55mpg on average*), that excels in stop-and-go city driving. Plus, with solid handling and suspension, quick steering and a bit of a kick, you won’t feel like you’re driving a clunky hybrid, you’ll feel like you’re driving a sedan, with great gas mileage. Plus, it starts at just $22,930.

Whether you’re looking for features, safety or sustainability (or all three!), the Honda Insight satisfies. Let’s get into the details:
