Luckily, it doesn't get a significant price increase to go with the upgrades.
Honda has announced that the 2020 Insight hybrid sedan is arriving in dealers this week with advanced standard safety tech and a new exterior color option. Available in LX, EX, and Touring trims, all Insights come standard with LED headlights, push-button start, and the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, which includes automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist, road departure mitigation, and traffic sign recognition.
It's part of Honda's plan to make its Sensing safety technology standard on all models by 2022. A new Platinum White Pearl color has also been added to the 2020 Honda Insight's exterior options.
Opting for the EX trim adds an 8-inch Display Audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, while the range-topping Touring trim adds leather seating surfaces, an 8-way power driver's seat, Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System, dual-zone automatic climate control, and more.
Regardless of the trim level, the 2020 Honda Insight uses a highly efficient 1.5-liter Atkinson-cylinder two-motor hybrid powertrain that produces 151 horsepower while delivering an EPA-rated 55 mpg city for LX and EX trims. The two trims also get an EPA-rated 52 mpg combined, while the Touring trim has a lower 51/45/48 city, highway, and combined fuel economy rating. Honda also claims the 2020 Insight has best-in-class passenger space, cabin appointments, and acceleration performance.
For the US, the 2020 Honda Insight is made at Honda's Greensburg, Indiana auto plant, alongside the Civic and CR-V. Pricing for the 2020 Honda Insight starts at $23,860 for the LX trim, $25,240 for the EX trim, and $29,270 for the Touring trim. All prices include a $930 destination charge. Compared to last year's model, the starting price has only increased by $135, so the Insight still offers excellent value for money.
