The 2021 Honda Insight is giving Illinois drivers plenty to swoon over, from its elegant design to its spacious cabin and brilliant finishes. And with available amenities like remote engine start, heated front seats, and a power moonroof, the 2021 Insight is one seriously sophisticated hybrid.
Most hybrid car shoppers are searching for a vehicle that limits their fuel consumption and carbon footprint, and the 2021 Honda Insight successfully accomplishes both of these goals. The 1.5L Atkinson cycle 4-cylinder engine and electronic continuously variable transmission (e-CVT) team up for spirited acceleration to the tune of 151 total system horsepower, all while providing the Land of Lincoln with a city fuel economy rating that is among the best in its segment.
Honda’s passion for innovation is on full display behind the wheel of this hybrid with intelligent engineering from the inside out. Drive-By-Wire technology can take you from Sport to ECON driving mode with the push of a button. Deceleration selectors allow you to control Insight’s regenerative braking—a system that actually allows you to reclaim battery power. Even the aerodynamic exterior helps save fuel with a grille that reduces wind loss, a front bumper that limits wake, and a taillight treatment that prevents airflow from entering the rear of the vehicle.
Perhaps what sets the 2021 Insight apart from other hybrid cars, however, is its refined cabin with best-in-class passenger space, sophisticated tech features, and premium interior appointments that rival some luxury vehicles. Soft-touch leather and fine double-stitching can be found throughout the instrument panel and dash, while available amenities like perforated, leather-trimmed seats, 8-way power driver’s seat and front passenger power seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and dual-zone automatic climate control system round out a cabin that caters as much to quality as it does comfort.
Turning our attention to available features, the 2021 Honda Insight does not disappoint with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and Walk Away Auto Lock. But even Insight’s LX base trim level refuses to compromise with standard equipment that includes Bluetooth HandsFreeLink and streaming, Pandora compatibility, a multi-angle rearview camera, and the Honda Sensing suite of safety features and driver-assistive technologies.
Since its initial launch in 1999, Insight has changed the landscape of hybrid cars, and the 2021 installment will undoubtedly continue Honda’s forward-thinking legacy with impressive efficiency, class-leading passenger space, and unrivaled safety features. The 2021 Insight is American made at Honda’s Greensburg, Indiana, manufacturing facility and can be test driven today with a visit to any Central Illinois Honda Dealers location.
