2010 Honda Insight EX: Not So Bad
February 24, 2010
I'm talking about the instrument panel. I know a number of you have written about how silly you think it looks. But I like it and here is why.
It puts the info I want right in front of my face in colors that are cool and soothing. I particularly like this design when driving at night. My eyes don't tire of the blue and green glow. I find cars that have red or orange can bother my eyes on long trips.
I like that my traveling speed is positioned higher than the steering wheel so I don't have to look down. I like that the background color changes from blue to green depending on how economically I am driving. I don't have to take my eyes off the road at all. My peripheral vision picks up on the color change.
All of these things may seem odd at first. But it doesn't make the instrument panel bad, just different.
