2021 Honda Insight Hybrid

Efficiency over style? Never. The 2021 Insight defines our hybrid concept, blending gratifying looks and electrifying performance with impressive fuel efficiency ratings. Mating a zippy 1.5-litre Atkinson-cycle engine with two electric motors, you'll find serious efficiencies in the tank and your ETA. And with the battery cleverly stored beneath the seats, cargo space and leg room take on their own sense of conservation. The 2021 Insight may just change your definition of a hybrid, too.


This hybrid is on a mission to do good - for the earth, and your look. Sporting a wide, powerful stance complete with Honda's signature flying wing grille and bold facia, the Insight is the perfect accessory to your driveway. The best part? These aggressive style cues are only half the package. Beyond the sweeping coupe-like roofline and character lines, the Insight features LED headlights, taillights and brake lights, plus LED daytime running lights and fog lights that all inspire a serious air of sophistication. Even the 17" aluminum-alloy wheels turn your drive into more of a strut. For the finishing touches, the one-touch power moonroof with tilt feature and various chrome finishes prove that an eye for efficiency pairs best with an eye for style.

While helping to minimize its impact out there, the Insight makes an absolute statement in here. Thanks to the wide exterior, the interior is graced with a spacious cabin that's equal parts sporty and classy. Every detail is crafted with a refined palette, from the soft-touch instrument panel with real stitching to the elegant heated front seats and available heated rear seats (outward positions only) with available perforated leather-trimmed seating surfaces. When lowering the 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback, the Insight boasts an available 428 litres of cargo volume that you'll love to fill. And for you: just step into the driver's seat with 8-way power adjustment and grab the leather-wrapped steering wheel to hit the road. Gently.

With the battery stored beneath the rear seats, the 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback helps to maximize both cargo space and people-space.

Saves on fuel. And space

If you thought hybrid vehicles sacrifice space, think again. With 428 litres of cargo volume (416 litres on the Hybrid Touring), the 2021 Insight is equally spacious as it is efficient.

Heated front and available heated rear seats.

Performance can get pretty heated in the 2021 Insight. But on those cold days, the standard heated front seats and available heated rear seats (outboard positions only) will definitely come in handy.

Honda Sensing Technology

Honda Sensing technologies are designed to help make your drive safer. With intuitive technology and design, we've created a way forward that we can all feel good about. Whether you're driving or sitting in the passenger seat, feel confident in the latest in safety innovation from Honda.

Forward Collision Warning (FCW) system

The FCW system that is integrated with CMBS is designed to detect the presence of vehicles in front of you and issue alerts if you're approaching with too much speed. If you fail to respond to the alerts, the CMBS is triggered into operation.

Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS)

To help reduce the likelihood or severity of a frontal impact, the CMBS is engineered to apply brake pressure if you don't slow down when it senses you're at risk of a collision. If it still senses an imminent collision, CMBS is designed to brake firmly.

Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system

The LDW system is designed to monitor vehicle lane position and alert you if your vehicle drifts into a new lane when you haven't signaled.

Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS)

The LKAS is engineered to gently correct your steering if you begin to leave a detected lane without signaling, applying torque progressively to the steering to help guide you back to the centre of the lane.

Road Departure Mitigation (RDM) system

The Road Departure Mitigation system is designed to help steer and even apply the brakes to help keep the vehicle from leaving the road.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

The ACC system is designed to keep a set speed and set following interval behind the vehicle detected ahead of yours, including the ability to start and stop the vehicle with the flow of traffic.

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Low-Speed Follow (LSF)

The ACC system with Low-Speed Follow is designed to keep a set speed and set following interval behind the vehicle detected directly ahead of yours, including the ability to start and stop the vehicle with the flow of traffic.

Traffic Sign Recognition

With the traffic sign recognition system, your Insight uses the monocular camera to detect traffic signs before you do, keeping you informed on the Driver Information Interface or the available head-up display.


At Honda, we strive to provide a high level of standard safety features to help ensure the safety of occupants, other drivers and even pedestrians. This added peace of mind helps our drivers maintain the confidence to enjoy every road to the fullest.

Controlled Braking
To assist with safe stopping, the 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is designed to help you maintain control under hard braking conditions, while Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) helps to optimize braking power based on weight distribution inside the vehicle. In addition, Brake Assist is engineered to help improve braking performance by applying brake pressure when a panic stop is detected.

Hill Start Assist
If you take your foot off the brake when stopped on an incline, this feature is engineered to temporarily maintain brake pressure to help prevent your Insight from starting to roll backwards.

Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®) with Traction Control
Vehicle Stability Assist is designed to sense and help correct oversteer and understeer scenarios to enhance handling and cornering stability, while Traction Control is designed to minimize wheel spin when accelerating on loose or slippery surfaces, helping to inspire greater driver confidence. Auto high beam The auto high beam feature automatically changes the low beam headlights to high beam headlights in certain circumstances to help improve your vision.

Seat belt safety
The Insight helps prepare you for the unexpected with 3-point height-adjustable front seat belts with automatic tensioning system, and 3-point rear seat belts.

Child safety
The Insight features childproof rear door locks as well as rear seat Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children (LATCH), which give you a simple and convenient method to install compatible child safety seats without using the vehicle's seat belt system.

Pedestrian safety
Innovative pedestrian safety features include an energy-absorbing hood and front fenders and deformable wiper pivots.

Six standard airbags

The cabin of the Insight contains six standard airbags. It features an i-SRS front airbag system, as well side curtain airbags designed to deploy if rollover is detected. Plus, it has SmartVent™ side airbags, which are designed to deploy in a manner that mitigates the risk of injury to out-of-position or smaller occupants.

Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure
The highly innovative, next-generation Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure is engineered to help disperse frontal impact energy to enhance occupant protection, while more effectively controlling it in severe collisions to help prevent intrusion into the passenger cabin
