Unlike the Civic model, the new 2021 Honda Insight Hybrid has its own styling. However, it still shares a platform with this car alongside the roof and rear panels. Everything else is Insight-specific.

The interesting thing is that Honda’s Insight doesn’t push any design envelopes. Basically, no one would guess this was a hybrid without reading the understated badges. However, the Insight front is attractive and it uses the same lines as the Accord Hybrid. We like the new styling that comes with many premium touches, like LED headlights, taillights, and stylish 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.

Interior Review

The cabin of the 2021 Honda Insight Hybrid is great arranged with plenty of room and techs. This model sits on a Civic platform, and because of that, all passengers can enjoy comfortably.

Like in almost every hybrid car, Honda placed the battery pack beneath the rear seats. Thanks to that, it keeps the car’s center of gravity low, providing better handling. Also, Insight comes with an impressive roomy trunk measuring 15.1 cubic feet.

The Insight EX brings even more features like Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, blind-spot warning system with rear cross-traffic alert, and so on. The most equipped and expensive one is Touring. This trim comes with leather interior, heated seats, onboard Wi-Fi, forward collision, traction control, and brake assist.
