2011 Honda Insight 4dr Hatchback (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


We have owned our 2010 insight for three years and have 37,000 miles on it.
The professional reviews are right in that it is a lot like the early Japanese cars that were on the market in the 70's which were very reliable but very basic in design.
If you want a reliable small cars for commuting back and forth, it is a great purchase.
We use it to go back and forth to town and it gets us about 50 mpg as it seems to love going about 50 mph.
Yes it rides a little hard and is short on sound insulation but for what we use it for, it's ideal.
I wouldn't use it for a long drive though.
We'll be passing it on to the children and probably getting another the last year of production.

Best Features

Very low initial cost, great mileage, dependable, nice body style.
