2020 Honda Insight review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 Honda Insight?

A hybrid compact sedan with seating for five that’s aimed squarely at the Toyota Prius, the Honda Insight is based on the Honda Civic sedan but has unique styling, a more upscale interior and a gas-electric hybrid drivetrain that delivers an EPA-estimated 52 mpg combined in most trim levels. Besides the Prius, competitors include the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid and Toyota Corolla Hybrid

What’s New on the 2020 Honda Insight?

All-new last year, the only significant change for 2020 is a new Platinum White Pearl paint color. 

What Features in the 2020 Honda Insight Are Most Important? 

All trim levels include the Honda Sensing suite of safety and driver-assist features, including forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist. An 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system goes in all trim levels but the base LX, and it includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity. The top, Touring trim includes heated front seats, leather upholstery, a power moonroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, navigation and a premium stereo.

Should I Buy the 2020 Honda Insight?

Honda fans and other hybrid buyers looking for terrific fuel economy and an alternative to the Toyota Prius would do well to consider the Honda Insight. With a long list of standard safety features and three trim levels to choose from, the Insight offers a measure of style to go with its practicality.

I Love My Insight

I absolutely love my Insight! The mileage is amazing and the styling is impressive. The safety and technology features are really nice and easy to use.

4.3

Wow, the MPG is incredible

The car averages 45-52 mpg. Love it. It is a great commuter car. The drivers seat is ridiculously comfortable. Downside is that the back seat is NOT comfortable and difficult to get in and out.

5.0

Wow! Love the car!

Speechless about this car. There’s so many words to describe my Insight! My new baby!!! So much bigger than my 2019 Toyota Yaris. Regret not going to Honda first for a car worth the monthly Payments!
