The Insight was a comfortable and reasonably roomy vehicle that did a good job stretching a tank of gas (42 mpg in combined city/highway driving). There was also a fair bit of stowage space in back with the rear seat folded or left upright. The gas-electric power team’s output was modest, but available paddle shifters for the CVT, which mimicked a normal automatic transmission, aided overall drivability. Ride quality was a bit rough, but the power steering was quick and precise.
