2021 Honda Insight LX Specs

Honda Insight

Riding on 16-inch alloys, the entry-level LX gets LED headlights as standard, along with LED taillights, and daytime running lights. It’s certainly the most affordable model, too, but for your thriftiness, you’ll only get a five-inch LCD display from which to run your infotainment, which doesn’t include smartphone integration or Wi-Fi. Instead, you get AM/FM Radio, Bluetooth calling and streaming, and a six-speaker sound system. The base sedan does get Honda Sensing as standard, though, including pre-collision avoidance tech, lane keep assist and departure warning, and adaptive cruise control.
