2002 Honda Insight 2dr Hatchback (1.0L 3cyl gas/electric hybrid 5M)


I had low expectations of this car - much to my surprise it is quite fast, handles great, and it very comfy. Auto climate control is fantastic. Styling STILL turns heads. Very roomy inside. I strongly suggest you opt for the CVT version - it is way too easy to drain the batteries by lugging the car in too high a gear with the manual, plus you have to downshift to very low gears for good power (2nd gear at 65 mph!). The CVT does it all for you.

Best Features

Idle stop - total silence at stoplights. High-tech dash. Exotic aluminum monocue construction.

Worst Features

Better stereo, make CVT standard.
