Used Honda Insight
Drive Home a Used Honda Insight from Silko Honda in Raynham
The Insight has always been an affordable hybrid option, and choosing to buy a used model just adds to the savings. But which year should you be looking for? The Insight has been around the block a few times, so we have a quick glance at what you can expect from recent models of Honda’s popular hybrid.
The Second Generation (2010 – Present)
One of the best parts about the Insight is that it’s a hatchback, meaning you get plenty of extra storage room while still retaining the stylish design of a small car. Add on the vehicle’s hybrid powertrain and you get fuel savings and versatility in one low-priced model.
No matter which model year of the Insight you’re after, you should be able to get the features you want. Originally offered in just two trims—LX and EX—2011 saw the addition of a plain, basic Insight as well. The 2012 Insight and more recent models were beneficiaries of a mid-cycle tweak that added an updated front and rear design, more rear headroom, improved sound insulation, and an updated navigation system.
Some features you’ll find on Insight models include:
- Keyless entry
- Power accessories
- iPod/USB audio interface
- Navigation with Bluetooth
- Paddle shifters
The First Generation (2000 – 2009)
As we said, the Insight’s been around for a while, and while the modern models have really set themselves apart from the past, models from the first generation of the Insight could achieve EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of as high as 60 mpg on the highway.
In fact, the Insight was the first gasoline-electric hybrid brought to America, and although you will find more features on the modern model, the original Insight was well-equipped with
- High-back bucket seating
- Power accessories
- Automatic HVAC controls
Honda’s hybrid was heralded as an incredible value by Edmunds.com when it debuted, and if you find one of these first-gen models, you can feel confident that it’s still a great choice for a used car.
