2010 Honda Insight: S is for

Just below the D on our Honda Insight's shifter is an S.

In any other car, you would expect this to be for Sport Mode.

But Honda calls this Second. From the Honda manual "The S position is similar to D, except the range of ratios are different for better acceleration and increased engine braking."

Isn't that the same thing as Sport?

I guess in a hybrid "Sport" is a dirty word. I'll second that.
