Ma­ture In­sight from Honda

Auto Today - - Feature -

The In­sight is Honda’s an­swer to the Toy­ota Prius and global warm­ing. This all-new gen­er­a­tion car de­buted at the show and is a huge de­par­ture from the safe look of the out­go­ing car. It will likely be po­si­tioned a step above the Civic but be­low the Ac­cord. Styling is bold at the front, con­ser­va­tive at the rear but strik­ing and ma­ture, when viewed as a pack­age. With a wheel­base of 2,700mm, the In­sight is said to of­fer class-lead­ing legroom. And with Honda’s lat­est hy­brid pow­er­train com­bin­ing a 1.5-litre petrol en­gine with elec­tric mo­tors for a to­tal of 155bhp, it should also of­fer class-lead­ing ef­fi­ciency.
