The Honda Insight isn't the best-known car in the industry, but perception changes when you get behind the wheel. This hybrid car from Honda only amazes whoever takes the trouble to discover it.

The first thing that seduces us about the 2021 Insight is the quality of what it offers. For the price, you get a model that's solidly built and that delivers an excellent level of equipment, whether you opt for the base version or the Touring. Inside, we're served a cozy atmosphere with quality materials, soundproofing and comfortable seats. You even get a slightly elevated rear seat position due to the battery compartment under the seat. The latter can be folded down, which increases the trunk volume tenfold for loading.

The driver enjoys an excellent driving position, and the ergonomics are top-notch. Onboard storage is generous.

Once on the road, the Insight surprises. It has an excellent and rigid chassis, which translates into a reassuring driving experience. The 2021 Insight is not a sports car, but it can be driven like one because of the balance it offers.

All of this would be impressive for any model. The Insight's beauty is that it offers all of this plus a powertrain configuration that allows us to save a lot of money at the pump. The reason is quite simple. The engine at work is a 1.5-litre 4-cylinder Atkinson-cycle engine that, thanks to the combined work of an electric motor, offers an average fuel economy of 4.9 litres per 100 kilometres. In the city, the rating is only 4.6 litres, while it's 5.3 on the highway. And, by the way, you get plenty of power at 151 horsepower and 197 pound-feet of torque.

Finally, let's not forget that all this is offered at a more than competitive price. The 2021 Insight is a car to consider if you want to enjoy the best of both worlds.
