The Insight's futuristic dashboard is fairly user-friendly, but smaller drivers may find that the steering wheel obstructs the digital speedo, and the air-con controls are fussy. The two-part rear screen is a much bigger visibility issue; it's just as well that the large door mirrors give a good view of what's behind.
Honda INSIGHT Hatchback space & practicality
The Insight has acres of legroom for those in both the front and back seats, and the flat floor gives plenty of space for feet in the rear. Thanks to the car's sleek, low shape, however, headroom isn't generous, particularly in the back. The boot is rather shallow, but it's larger than a Ford Focus's and has a handy underfloor compartment.
Honda INSIGHT Hatchback equipment
Base SE trim is good, with climate control, alloy wheels, electric windows and door mirrors, and steering wheel-mounted controls. ES cars have cruise control, automatic headlights and wipers, heated front seats, steering-wheel gearshift paddles and a plug for your MP3 player. ES-T models have sat-nav and Bluetooth, while top-of-the-range EX models have leather upholstery and voice-operation on the sat-nav.
