2023 Honda Insight Sedan: One Of The Most Comfortable & Affordable Sedan

The 2023 Honda Insight is the successor of the Civic hybrid. With a similar size and shape as Honda’s compact sedan, but an efficient gas-electric powertrain under the hood, the Insight is like a Civic that’s quieter at low speeds and delivers better mpg.

Many of the Civic’s best features are included. That covers a comfortable ride, exquisite interior, and a well-aligned steering. On the downside, the Insight can get noisy when you step on it. But, it’s a pleasant-looking sedan that doesn’t cost more than non-hybrid rivals and will save you money at the pump.

Engine & Performance

The Insight does a better job than most Honda models with miserly fuel economy. Its combination of a gas engine and electric motors provides a combined 151 horsepower, which motivates the Insight from zero to 60 mph in 7.7 seconds.

It can run on its electric motor alone for roughly one mile at lower speeds but request brisk acceleration and the gasoline engine will kick-in seamlessly.

You might notice the engine getting loud under hard acceleration, but the Insight’s powertrain is otherwise quiet and refined. The Insight is an exceedingly pleasant vehicle to drive. It is quiet, comfortable, and refined, and it handles confidently.

Although it’s not overtly sporty, the Insight has a nicely controlled ride and solid handling.  Its supple suspension soaks up bumps well, and its quick steering helps it change direction responsively. The predictable and progressive brake pedal in the Insight suffers from little of the clunkiness that plagues the brakes of other hybrids..

Fuel Economy

Honda provides two EPA ratings for the Insight: 55 mpg city and 49 highway for the lighter EX trim and 51 city and 45 highway for the Insight Touring, which is better-equipped and comes with larger wheels-and-tires.

All three Insight models fall a few miles per gallon short of the Toyota Prius and the Hyundai Ioniq’s EPA ratings. But the Insight Touring achieved 47 mpg on our real-world highway test, 2 mpg better than its EPA rating.

Drivers who spend more time in stop-and-go driving can expect even better results; hybrids typically are more efficient in city driving conditions than on the highway.

Interior

The Insight feels more upscale than the closely related Civic, and it measures up well to other hybrid competitors. A customizable digital gauge in the instrument panel can display a variety of information, from fuel-economy data to speed-limit info.

The rear seats have enough space for two adults. The Insight’s battery pack is located under the rear seat, so it doesn’t infringe on cargo capacity at all; the rear seats still fold mostly flat to accommodate larger items.

The Insight is a conventional sedan with a separate trunk, which means they can hold more stuff and their large cargo areas are easier to load.

The Insight does have a very useful and configurable center console that can hold tons of personal items. There are also a few bins in the cargo area.

Safety & Driver-Assistance Features

All Insights come with a comprehensive package of driver assists called Honda Sensing. Blind-spot monitoring and cross-traffic alert come standard on EX and Touring models.

Other features include automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping assist, and standard forward-collision warning.
