Unlike the model that gave rise to it, the next generation of the Honda Insight is quite bold! The headlights and lanterns full of LED’s are quite modern.

Honda Insight 2021 engine and performance
If in appearance the Insight remembers the Civic, it is in the mechanical set that the two distance themselves to the maximum! The engine of the Honda Insight 2021 counts two engines!
The first is the Atkinson 1.5-liter Aspire, which has a longer expansion phase and uses compression firing to save fuel. The engine generates 108 hp and 13.7 kgfm.
The second engine is the famous electric motor capable of delivering 131 hp and 27.2 kgfm of torque. But together they can generate more than 153 hp.
The Insight transmission is CVT!
According to Honda, the goal was to create a direct competitor to the Prius, however the Insight is not a plug-in hybrid and its autonomy in electricity is small!
But how does the Honda Insight 2021 work ? To clarify, the model runs with the electric motor only in certain situations like starting, light cruising speed and braking. The autonomy in this mode is almost 1.7 km.
