Although the nameplate dates back to 1999, the Honda Insight as we know it today has only been around since the 2019 model year. When the original Honda Insight was introduced, the hybrid Honda Insight was a subcompact car and only lasted until 2006. It was the reintroduced as a compact hybrid sedan in 2010, but that time only lasted until 2014. But the third time is the charm, as they say, and we’re thrilled to be able to provide the 2021 Honda Insight near Savannah GA.
The Honda Insight makes an excellent option in the compact sedan segment for any driver looking to save money at the pump. It’s not the largest nor smallest sedan on the market, but as long as you don’t need the space of a crossover, the Insight should feel plenty roomy to you!
Although the Honda Insight is only a couple of years old, Honda engineers decided to increase its volume already by making a few updates. For example, the Blind Spot Information system featuring Cross-Traffic Monitor is now standard on both the EX and Touring trim levels, while the incredible Honda Sensing suite of advanced driver-assistive safety technologies is standard across the board.
While the Honda Insight might not be as powerful as its slightly larger sibling, the Honda Accord Hybrid, its hybrid powertrain – which combines a 1.5L 4-cylinder engine with an electric motor – does generate a total output of 151.5 horsepower. That’s plenty of power to make each and every trip memorable and enjoyable. But it’s the sedan’s fuel economy ratings that really excited. In the LX and EX trim levels, the Insight manages to achieve 55 miles per gallon through the city and 49 mpg on the highway for a combined rating of 52 mpg*.
The Touring trim level doesn’t give up too much either, with those numbers only dropping to 51/45/48 respectively*. If you think you might be interested in a 2021 Honda Insight of your own, be sure to get in touch with us right here at Hilton Head Honda today!
