Why the 2010 Honda Insight?

Fuel economy

Econ Mode for just a three mile drive and got 53 mpg though traffic was very light. Afterwards during normal traffic driving, not using the Econ Mode, plus a very short drive 1/2 mile up and 1/2 mile back I got 36 mph engin cold.

Exterior styling

The front styling was another reason over the Prius offering. Side appearance was also to my liking

Ride smoothness

Only City driving thus far, and the Insight seemed to be as smooth as my 09 Civic EX.

Front seat room

For my 6-3 height, I had plenty of leg room.

Cargo capacity

Cargo space was another reason for this purchase in that it has plenty of it for larger items.

Why Not the 2010 Honda Insight?

Discounts & incentives

There was none

Rear seat room & comfort

For tall people, its a no go. Did not like it one bit and had to think about this short fall if I ever wanted to carry friends. Luckly I normally drive alone

Powertrain performance

A little harsh sounding but expected it for the size of the engine.

Interior styling

Seems the interior styling could be a bit more matured with a better rear window layout. Tough to see out the rear with the split glass designe.

Controls and instruments

The area around the center where either the radio or Nav system would be seemed cheap to me. Too many dials that cluttered the dash.
