BASE PRICE: $23,725

Honda’s first­gen­er­a­tion In­sight was odd but in­no­va­tive; the sec­ond-gen­er­a­tion car was de­riv­a­tive and unim­pres­sive. For the

2019 model year, the third-gen­er­a­tion In­sight, which is ar­guably the best-look­ing Honda in the sta­ble, hopes to swing the nee­dle to­ward fun while still of­fer­ing up to 55 mpg in the city. The new In­sight uses Civic-de­rived un­der­pin­nings—an ex­cel­lent chas­sis to build off of that should lend the In­sight solid han­dling and ride qual­ity. Mo­ti­va­tion is sup­plied by Honda’s third­gen­er­a­tion two-motor hy­brid as­sist sys­tem, which nets 151 hp and 197 lb-ft when com­bined with its 1.5-liter four-cylin­der gaso­line en­gine. The Honda Sens­ing suite of safety sys­tems comes as stan­dard equip­ment.
