at 4.6 litres/100km. Like the Civic ver­sion, the In­sight has a 1.3-litre, four-cylin­der en­gine mated to an elec­tric mo­tor to work to­gether.

Honda’s sys­tem in the In­sight is a smaller, lighter, more pow­er­ful yet more fru­gal ver­sion of the Civic Hy­brid pow­er­train.

Help­ing the fuel econ­omy is the In­sight’s light­weight body that, with a drag co­ef­fi­cient of 0.28, is one of the most aero­dy­namic cars on the roads. The bat­tery is 31 per cent smaller and 35 per cent lighter than the unit in the Civic Hy­brid.

Honda ex­pects to sell about 7000 In­sights in the UK this year. The an­nual global sales tar­get is about 200,000 units.

Rapid mover: Aus­tralia is to wait as the Jazz-based In­sight Hy­brid five-door hatch­back is in de­mand over­seas.
