Reviews for 2010 Honda Insight
OUTSTANDING FOR COMMUTE
Don't let the official EPA figures fool you, the car can routinely get more MPG - particularly if the weather cooperates. My commute is pretty much a 50/50 mix of hwy and city driving. 32 miles in all daily. I typically get slightly upwards of 45 MPG when it is below freezing. When in the 70s, I can hit close to 60 MPG. However, it should be known I drive the speed limit on the freeway - 55 mph. Drive the car 70 mph and the mileage drops into the mid 40s. The car has "interactive" features which help you learn to drive it efficiently regardless of the speed. I find the car to be very comfortable and functional as a city commuter. As long as you don't take any detours at the dragstrip you're fine. It does after all have a 1.3 L engine. Merging with traffic at highway speeds uphill can tax the motor quite a bit but with enough electrical assist it can usually do fine. The gasoline motor does generally shut off at stops as a hybrid should. Is eerily quiet at first. And, the brakes have a hybrid feel to them as well. They stop great but use a metered pressure on them. Put the family in the car and things get a little tight in the backseat - two teenagers and a younger child in a booster seat. That can make even a Grand Marquis tight. Hatch is convenient with easy access. One car magazine describes the car as alien in nature styling wise. The dashboard does look more sci-fi than hi-tech but ignore the looks and you'll find everything is right at your fingertips or direct view as it should be. It is a reach to the Navigation/audio unit sometimes but this is easily overlooked as I appreciate the direct integration for my Ipod. Bluetooth for the hands free phone on the Nav model is also a great convenience. Some folks complain about the bar in the middle of your rear window. I on the other hand appreciate it at night when it blocks glaring headlights. Just the right level. I have had no visibility issues. I have two other Hondas - Odyssey and a Civic Hybrid. This one seems to have the same desired family traits.
I love my Insight!
I'd had my heart set on a Prius, but the Insight edged in instead. It's a little zippier on the road than the Prius, even though the estimated mileage isn't as good. I haven't been able to log the estimated 40/45 MPG -- never getting above 38 -- but I've been running the A/C. For a small car, it has a lot of cargo room with the back seats down. I can load my mother's wheelchair with ease through the hatchback. All in all, I'm very happy with the Insight.
LOVEEEEEEE MY CAR!
Just bought my 2010 Honda Insight last week and I am in love! I drive about 100 miles a day for work and this car is amazing on gas! It takes a little getting use to with all the gadgets in the dashboard but it is extremely helpful and teaches you how to drive economically to get the best mileage. I have been getting beyond 45mpg and the more I learn the more mileage I will get. THANK YOU CARMAX!
