2010 Honda Insight LX 4dr Hatchback (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


An excellent economy car overall. Many of the observations made by others are true: The motor is buzzy at high RPM. ECON mode turns it into a total slug. Forget using this mode if you live in a hilly area. I do, and I leave it turned off and shift into Sport mode almost exclusively. Even so, I'm still averaging 39 MPG. A worthy sacrifice for improved pep. Handling is good for a car with tires that skinny. The styling is pleasing and it draws positive attention from onlookers. There's a lot of hard plastic in the interior. Some slightly softer surfaces might have been nice. Predictable Honda road noise, but hey, it's a $19k car, not a Lexus. Overall, I'm very pleased.

Best Features

Fuel Economy, Styling. Acceptable acceleration for a hybrid (as long as ECON mode is off.)

Worst Features

Radio sounds a bit tinny. Roof line impossibly low in the backseat for anyone over 5' 11". Cup holders in the front, just under the dash are spill inducers. Less hard plastic please. The less expensive Honda Fit has a more pleasing interior.
