I test drove the ex at the local dealer, I was impressed with the vehicle and the packaging of the EX model. This vehicle has a nice ride and is made to save money on gas. You must realize that this vehicle is not a sports car. It performs as it was design to. I traded in my 08 CRV and bought the Insight EX. The insight teaches you how to get the most mileage out the vehicle by changing your driving habits.
The background lighting in the speedometer it tells you that you are driving efficiently by the green background and when you are wasting gas by the blue background. All the gauges are well placed and the havc system works great.
I wish it had the 1.8 liter engine with the IMA that will be in the CRZ.
