Honda's Gift to the World
By swarfer on
Vehicle
2012 Honda Insight EX PZEV 4dr Hatchback (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
The Insight is a essentially a super efficient fwd conventional automobile. The hybrid system is a small DC motor/generator is wound around the output shaft of the engine and provides power for acceleration and recharges the battery when coasting. Streamlined and somewhat narrow, big and unusually tall folks will not be comfortable. Soccer moms will find the hatchback storage too small. The interior is crisp and functional but upscale buyers will likely opt for something more sophisticated. The Insight is capable of 50+mpg but hyper milers will want more. For me, it is a brilliantly simple design that is affordable, economical, beautiful and a pleasure to drive.
Favorite Features
Cool factor, easy and satisfying to drive, good handling, aero design, crosswind stability, simple, economical, unique, fun, a HONDA masterpiece
Suggested Improvements
Insights can be elusive so the supply of cars needs to be increased for better selection.
