The Honda Insight Hybrid bears many similarities to the Accord Hybrid , but with some tweaks. Specific figures have yet to be released for the Insight Hybrid, but Consumer Reports wrote, “Honda says the new Insight is projected to receive an EPA fuel economy rating above 50 mpg combined, “fuel economy ratings competitive with the best hybrids in the segment,” says Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of Automobile Sales and general manager of the Honda Division, American Honda Motor Co., Inc.” Compared to the 2014 Honda Insight, which earned a 41 mpg* combined, this is a noticeable improvement. Here’s a few more facts about its powertrain:
1.5L Atkinson cycle engine
Electric motor and lithium-ion battery
Multi-mode drive selector for the transmission
This is one car that’s sure to turn heads on the streets of Lakeview! It’s sized between a compact and mid-sized sedan and features a sporty stance that’s low and wide. The addition of low-profile LED lighting in the front and back complete the singular look. Other notable exterior features include:
Honda’s signature “flying wing” grille
Dramatic character lines
