2021 Honda Insight – Review, Specs, Configurations, Prices, and Interior

2021 Honda Insight

MSRP: $23,130 - $29,040










  • Easy to use technology and many standard active safety features
  • Calm, pleasant interior
  • Good gas mileage
  • Convenient ride


  • Less sporty than some competitors
  • Noisy high rpm gas engine


The 2021 Honda Insight ranks in the middle of our hybrid and electric vehicle rating. It’s got amazing gas mileage and includes plenty of easy-to-use features, but it’s not the fastest vehicle on the road. The Honda Insight is a hybrid that looks and drives like a normal compact car. It shares many components with the popular Honda Civic car and offers a similar driving experience and a spacious, practical cabin.

The crucial difference is the combination of the Insight gasoline engine and electric motors that provide power in the name of efficiency in a non-traditional way. The hybrid system is smooth during daily driving but maybe noisy when it’s hard to accelerate. But the minimum price premium of Insight above the Civic and its outstanding fuel economy makes it a smart purchase.

What is the seating capacity?

The Insight has five seats. A reasonable offer of cabin space is available, and the front seats are pleasant and supportive. The back seats are also suitable, although tall people want a little additional headroom.

How many Child Car Seats are there?

Two sets of LATCH car-seat connectors are available for the rear outboard seats of the Insight. The central seat has a higher tether anchor and can borrow lower anchors from the outboard seats. The Highway Safety Insurance Institute gave the LATCH system of Insight the highest rating in Good+, which shows that it is among the simplest and most versatile to use.

Interior Quality

This small Honda has a beautiful interior. The well-built cabin has many soft-touch materials all around and is effectively insulated from external noise.

Cargo Space

Because its battery pack is located under the back seats rather than in the trunk, Insight has a decent cargo capacity for a small hybrid. Its typical setup offers 15.1 cubic feet of trunk space and 14.7 cubic feet of Touring model. This is enough room for approximately ten shopping bags or family luggage for the weekend.

Infotainment, Bluetooth, and Navigation

You likely want an updated infotainment system from Insight, which adds useful connectivity features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and has a larger, more touch-sensitive screen. The infotainment system is user-friendly with any configuration. The simple interface makes the display of menus easy, and the system reacts to inputs quickly.

Should I Buy a 2021 Honda Insight?

The 2021 Honda Insight is an attractive option between hybrid and electric vehicles. It ranks just in the center of the class, but many higher competitors (mid-size cars) cost more than tiny Insight. This means that if you can do without more space, the insight is precious, especially if you consider it is simple to drive and has better gas mileage than most rivals.
