Better car than it looks on paper

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


I do a 40 mile highway commute on weekdays and some city driving on weekends. By my own calculations, I get an honest 50 miles per gallon. The dashboard readouts give you the information you need to modify your driving style to maximize MPG. I see people complain about a noisy car, but that's not my experience. It's quiet on the freeway. It will get noisy on a rough roads or if you stomp on the gas pedal. The interior is a little plasticy, but it still looks clean and functional. Because of the car styling, the car has larger blind spots than I would like.

Best Features

Gas mileage is better than expected, car feels solid and well-made, styling is good.

Worst Features

Reduce the blind spots around the car. Another 2-3 MPG would be great!
