2020 Honda Insight for Sale in West Warwick, RI
The Honda Insight no longer has the futuristic look of its original two-door incarnation, which was released in 1999 at the beginning of the hybrid car revolution. The 2020 Insight is a sleek and stylish four-door that is as attractive as it is eco-friendly. It returned for the 2019 model year after a long hiatus and is relatively unchanged for 2020. Its compact but comfortable cabin combined with its exceptional fuel efficiency makes it an excellent vehicle for city drivers or people with long commutes. All models also come standard with a great package of driver-assist features, known as Honda Sensing. All of these wonderful attributes add up to make the 2020 Insight one of the most versatile and stylish hybrids in its segment.
The ’20 Insight is offered in three trim levels: LX, EX, and Touring. Although the LX is the base model, it nevertheless comes standard with great features like a multimedia/audio system with a 5-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth wireless connectivity, push-button ignition, LED headlights, and Honda Sensing’s package of driver-assist features. The EX trim upgrades to an 8-inch touchscreen multimedia display and adds Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, split-folding rear seats, an eight-speaker audio system, and Honda LaneWatch. At the top of the line, the Touring trim receives upscale features like leather upholstery, a sunroof, power-adjustable and heated front seats, a Wi-Fi hotspot, a navigation system, and a premium 10-speaker audio system.
Mechanical Features and Fuel Economy
The front-wheel-drive Insight is powered by a hybrid system consisting of an inline 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine (107 hp) and two electric motors (129 hp and 197 pounds-feet of torque). The total system delivers a respectable 151.5 horsepower and 197 lb.-ft. of torque, while still getting exceptional fuel economy. The LX and EX trims get an EPA-estimated 55 mpg city and 49 mpg highway, for a combined 52 mpg. Because of the added weight of all of the upscale amenities the Touring gets as standard equipment, that trim trails slightly with 51 mpg city and 45 mpg highway (for a combined 48 mpg). All models also have a 10.6-gallon fuel tank, which allows for over 500 miles of driving without a gas-station stop.
Although the 2020 model has not been rated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA**) yet, it’s expected to earn the same high marks in government-issued crash tests that the 2019 model earned (a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating). All models come standard with Honda Sensing active safety features: collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, lane keeping assist, traffic sign recognition, forward collision warning, and lane departure warning. Other safety features that come standard on all models include auto high-beam headlights, a multi-angle rearview camera, brake assist, and an advanced airbag system. The EX and Touring trims also get Honda LaneWatch, which displays a visual of the right-side blind spot on your infotainment display to help you keep an eye on potentially passing traffic, and the rearview camera is upgraded with dynamic guidelines.
