The 2012 Insight

One of three hybrids within Honda’s Canadian lineup, the Honda Insight provides its passengers with a quiet, comfortable and guilt-free ride with its exceptionally high fuel economy and Honda’s unique Eco AssistTM system with ECON mode. It’s a sleek and stylish 5-passenger, 5-door hatchback that also represents another innovative step in Honda’s goal to create a brighter future with blue skies for our children.

Honda’s Eco Assist™ System is an innovation that can help drivers improve fuel efficiency by altering vehicle functionality and providing driver feedback with fuel economy dependent on their given set of driving conditions.

The Insight is powered by an Integrated Motor Assist™ (IMA™) system comprised of a 1.3-litre i VTEC® gasoline 4-cylinder engine and a 10-kilowatt electric motor. The combination develops 98 horsepower at 5800 rpm and 123 lb-ft. of torque at 1000-1700 rpm. A 40 L fuel tank provides an estimated maximum driving range exceeding 643 kilometres.
