After totaling my 2003 Dodge Caravan, I looked at 5 different vehicles to replace it and ended up with an Insight. The fuel mileage is what sold me on a lease. The car has a hi tech proven power train vs. the KIA Forte which has a higher tech interior only. The ride is busy but produces good handling on cornering despite the battery weight. The main review states that the engine crankshaft keeps rotating yet often my tachometer goes to 0 at a full stop? and I just snicker that the guy next to me is burning fuel going nowhere. he he. There is some rattling going over bumps coming from the open back area. Have to take it back to be looked at.
Economy and MPG display. Exterior front and side design. Radio controls. Side air bags. Seat belt warning (because I have a habit of not wearing it).
Bigger wheels would make it sexier. Moon roof. Rear spoiler. More electric assist in low load situations to increase fuel mileage.
