2013 Honda Insight LX 4dr Hatchback (1.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)


The obvious--excellent gas mileage.
Test drove and got over 50 mpg consistently.
The car
has decent low end torque, so will pick up if you want it to.
The green eco invites you to continually drive conservatively to maintain good mpg.
The stereo system is fairly good quality.
Hatchback opens easily.
Nice storage.
Has spare tire.
The drive is very silky and smooth.
The best CVT I've driven.
The turning radius is incredible.
Will turn on the dime.
Handles beautifully around curves.
Suspension very sturdy with bumps.
Ignition is seemless and strong.

The major con is the incredible uncomfortable driving seat.

Best Features

Terrific engine, ignition, and mpg. Hatchback is very handy. Nice side mirrors, which help eliminate blind spots. Best price for a hybrid.

Worst Features

While driving for 30 minutes, will get the sorest back. The seat alone was the determining factor to not get thee car. When park, only the driver's door unlocks. Must hit unlock button to open other doors and open trunk. A lot of cheapness with interior: turn signal, horn, and console. Cup holders in a bad space and small. Only one outlet for charger. Rearview mirror in bad spot--causes blindspot. Blindspot in rear corners. Headlights are weak and low. Can't read a side street sign with them. Very limited. Need to upgrade the seats! Can't drive a car if uncomfortable, no matter what the mpg is!
