Honda Insight Performance Specs

The Insight’s Honda hybrid system combines several cutting-edge elements to produce sharp and responsive performance, including:

  • 107 hp, 99 lb-ft of torque 1.5L In-Line 4-Cylinder Gas Engine
  • AC Synchronous Permanent-Magnet Electric Motor
  • Lithium-Ion Battery

That combination provides up to 151 hp and 197 lb-ft of torque combined, which ensures everything from quick acceleration in the city to effortless cruising in the fast lane. It’s a hybrid that can perform above and beyond expectations wherever you happen to take it.


Honda Insight MPG Ratings

The Honda Insight might offer strong performance specs, but they don’t get in the way of efficiency. Thanks to a sophisticated Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission (e-CVT) with Shift-By-Wire (SBW), Sport Mode, and Deceleration Selectors, you can expect:

  • Up to an EPA-estimated 55 mpg in the city and 49 mpg on the highway with LX and EX*.
  • Up to an EPA-estimated 51 mpg in the city and 45 mpg on the highway with the Touring*.

You’ll also have the opportunity to use the 3-Mode Drive System to personalize performance on the go:

  • ECON Mode: Helps maximize the Honda Insight range by optimizing your drive around efficiency.
  • Sport Mode: Makes more aggressive use of the electric motor for quicker acceleration and throttle response.
  • EV Mode: Ideal for shorter journeys, EV Modes uses the electric motor only.


Honda Insight Active Safety Features

Beyond its diverse suite of performance features, the Honda Insight is equipped with a strong selection of active safety features. Their main responsibility is to keep you in full command of the vehicle, so they enhance safety by sharpening up performance.

Honda Insight active safety features include:

  • Vehicle Stability Assist™ (VSA®) with Traction Control: Adjusts driving performance on the fly to avoid any loss of stability or traction.
  • Electronic Brake Distribution (EBD): Distributes braking energy intelligently between all four wheels for safer and smarter stopping power.
  • Brake Assist: Reads emergency braking situations and automatically applies additional pressure.
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): Since driving with too much or too little air in your tires impacts performance, the Honda Insight will let you know when adjustments should be made.

    The team at Honda understand that exhilarating performance comes from more than the powertrain alone, even with an eco-focused model like the 2020 Honda Insight. That’s why each model comes fitted with several performance features to deliver everything from a smooth ride to all-season peace of mind.
