The Honda Insight is a car manufactured by Honda. In its first generation, it was marketed as a three-door vehicle. In its second generation, it was marketed as a five passenger hatchback.
The second generation Insight was introduced by Honda in 2009. The Insight was priced at a MRSP value of $19,800, making it the most affordable hybrid vehicle in the United States of America. In 2010, Honda released another base model that proved to be even less expensive than the original Insight. The Insight was ranked highly in Japan as a top-selling vehicle in 2009. In 2014, Honda announced that the Insight would no longer be produced after the 2015 model was released.
The first generation of the Insight began in 1999 and ended in 2006. It was the first hybrid vehicle to be made available in America, later followed by the Toyota Prius. The Insight offered a variety of features for consumers, such as an aluminum structure that helped drivers get the best fuel efficiency, as well as reducing emissions.
The second generation began in 2009 and ended in 2014. Due to its interior volume, the new Insight is classified as a compact car. Due to an increase in size and weight, the fuel efficiency of this generation of the car is lower than that of the first generation. The most recent generation was designed to make the hybrid car more affordable to a variety of car consumers. Many revisions were made in the second generation of the car, such as styling of the interior and suspension. As a result of these changes, Honda made a promise that the second generation would provide a better ride for drivers, as well as having improved handling and stability. Due to slow sales, the Honda Insight was eventually discontinued in 2014.
