A: but its ugly
Q: When are the Hyundai Elantra Touring and the Honda Insight going on sale?
These models are called 2009 models (Hyundai Elantra Touring) and the Honda Insight but they aren’t for sale yet. When will these models be available to look at in the dealers? Thanks for the insight (no pun intended). Do you know what the price ranges may be?
A: Not sure about the Honda Insight but this will give you more info about the Elantra Touring
Looks like it will be available in a few months.
Q: Why does the new Honda Insight so greatly resemble the Toyota Prius?
The Prius is the darling of the automotive world. Fine, but i assumed it was because of it’s hybrid system, not because of its styling. Mark you, it’s not that horrendous, just boring. When Honda announced they were introducing a new Hybrid car along the lines of their old Insight from a few years ago, the original which had a unique and interesting design, i was somewhat excited. But the new Insight is quite easy to mistake for Prius. Why the conformity?!?
A: The body style of the Insight is designed to reduce drag to maximize fuel efficiency. This was not done to the Civic Hybrid because Honda wanted it to still look like a Civic. With the new generation Insight, Honda could take advantage of a different body style to increase fuel efficiency, which happens to be what Toyota engineers did with the Prius years before.
Q: Can anyone help me with the Honda Insight car?
Okay so I am confused. Is the 2009 Honda Insight hybrid the same as the 2010 Honda insight hybrid. Do they just call it 2010 for fun even though it’s actually made in 2009? Please answer thanks.
A: There is not a 2009 Insight. The Insight is labeled as a 2010 model only.
We already have 2010 Odyssey and Pilot models in stock now.
Q: is the 2010 honda insight a safe vehicle?
I am considering buying a 2010 honda insight and i was wondering how safe it is, I can’t seem to find it on the internet.
A: NO!!! These vehicles are completely unsafe. Asteroids tend to hit these cars within days of purchase. 99% of the time, people are in the car. The frame and engine block is made out of iron and has a very high magnetic charge, which makes other cars pull towards this car, and people tend to hit metal poles and the back end of cars. These cars have horrible suspension, and break down all the time. They have 1 out of 5 stars for safety on all impacts tests. These cars motors tend to explode in the parking lot and while your driving them. Be careful if you get this car!
Q: How come the old honda insight has greater MPG than new ones?
1999 Honda Insight had an estimated MPG rating of 61 city/ 70 highway whereas the 2010 Insight has 40 city/ 43 highway?
A: The US Government recently changed how cars are measured for MPG. The new test more accurately reflects “real world” driving, not test track or laboratory driving. Because of this, almost all cars lost some of their MPG ratings.
Q: Brittni want to buy a car that gets excellent gas mileage. She is trying to decide between a Honda Insight ?
& a Honda Civic Hybird. Honda Insight city 57, Hwy 56, Civic city 45, Hwy 51. She likes the Civic better, but the insights gas mileage is tempting. Assuming she drives 12,000 miles a year & about 60% of her miles are city, how much more gas would she use per year in the Civic. If gas costs $2.78 per gallon, how much more will she spend on the Civic?
A: Wait for the 2010 Honda Insight. It will cost about $18,500, compared to the Civic Hybrid which starts at $23,550. That $5000 you save buying the 2010 Insight over the Civic Hybrid will be enough to pay for 1250 gallons of gasoline at $4 a gallon (enough gasoline for a few years of driving).

Though many have jokingly called it the “Honda Prius” or “Honda Hindsight” because it looks so much like the Toyota Prius.
Q: What do you think of the honda insight 2010?
After owning a kia, we are looking to buy a new car. In this economy, we figured an economic car is a better choice. we went to a Honda dealer earlier and saw the Honda hybrid insight 2010. if you own this car, what do you think of it. I know Honda is a reliable industry, but how does the insight control? does it handle well, and is it easy to use? Give me your comments about it.
A: Any Honda is a good choice, my family has 3 of them, each with almost 200,000 miles on them. The Insight is a great car, it handles better than the comparable Toyota Prius, and involves the driver much more. It gets similar mileage to the Prius as well, and costs less, and is the best buy in the hybrid segment. It is a high-tech car, but the dealer will show you how to use the systems, and you should have no problems using the car. I hope this helps!
Q: Does the 2000 Honda Insight have a back seat.or is it only a 2 seater?
I have been looking everywhere and cannot find pictures of any 2000 Insight interior photo except for the front seats- Are there back seats? Anyone have photos up of their Insight from teh back cargo area/back seat area?
If there are only 2 seats, do the newer insights have more that 2 seats?
Thanks for your help!
A: All Insights are two seat coupes. They do have storage behind the two seats under the glass hatch that is big enough for a suitcase but not much more.
Honda no longer makes the Insight. There were only a handful made in 2007 and it has been discontinued for 2008. They have a poor resale value because they are small two seaters that are pretty ’stripped’. The Civic Hybrid took all the sales away from the Insight; the only reason honda kept making the Insight was because of the 60+ mpg rating on the manual trans Insight. In 2008 the EPA changed the way they calculate the fuel mileage and honda decided to stop production.
hope that answers your question
Q: Is the Honda Insight Hybrid still being made?
When I check the online car sales websites it appears this vehicle dissapears after 2003. I like it better than that smart-car. I can’t afford a Prius and a used Insight seems the best choice in the under $15K range.
A: No. Honda stopped making them in 2006.
Everything I have read says Honda will be introducing 3 new hybrids in the coming years.
Although Honda is hush hush about what they are, some forums say that there will be a Hybrid version of the Honda Fit, which will likely be the cheapest new hybrid on the market if it is introduced.
Q: How can I break 45 mpg on my honda insight?
I do everything right, roll up the windows, turn off the AC, and accelerate smoothly, and the econ mode is on. What more can I do?
A: Brake smoothly. Toss out anything you don’t need, extra weight means more gas gas use, mind you, check tire pressure every month, and clean you car regularly, dirt build up equals more weight too.
Q: Is the new honda insight a sedan or a station wagon?
I am so very confused. It looks like it could go either way.
A: A sedan is a four door car with a trunk.
The Insight is a Hatchback or Wagon. It will be referred to as a hatchback more then a wagon.
Q: Should I get the New Honda Insight?
I had a versa, extreme low mileage. I was not pleased with its low gas mileage 22-23 avg. Far less than 33 in advertised. Should i spend like 10 k more to trade in with a new honda insight?
A: I wouldn’t. How long do you think it would take for you to use up $10 k in fuel with your current versa?
At least wait until there are some real-world fuel consumption results for the insight (from owners or testers, check automotive blogs). Hybrids don’t always deliver the fuel consumption numbers the manufacturers promised either.
Q: What are the benefits of a honda insight?
List environmental benefits and financial please.
A: Well no one would ever steal the car as it’s to ugly…
Q: is a 2000 Honda insight a good first car for a 16 year old?
I know it would be expensive up front, but wouldn’t it save me money in the long run? Are there any better pre-owned hybrids around?
A: Yes it is, its a very nice first car actually. It actually wouldnt be to expensive up front, and the better hybrids are honda civic hybrids and accord hybrid(rare), but cheaper would be the Insight, so its really a nice car. Good luck, i hope this helps.
