Equipped with a regular, non-plug-in hybrid system, the Honda Insight compact sedan soldiers on as a mostly anonymous car in the Japanese automaker’s lineup. It shares its architecture with the Honda Civic, but offers a slightly more luxurious cockpit. Drivers have 151 horsepower at their disposal, but more impressive is the comfortable ride delivered by the suspension. For 2021, new standard features include a sunroof, blind spot monitoring system and rear-cross traffic alert.
