Automotive Editor -

The Honda Insight remains the least expensive new hybrid you can buy for the 2014 model year—with a starting price around $19,500, the Insight is over $5,000 cheaper than a base Prius.

Beyond its hybrid fuel economy and tempting starting price, though, there are compromises. The Insight's driving manners are rather unrefined and lackluster, even for a hybrid, and base models lack common features like cruise control, a USB input and even vanity mirrors.

Honda has announced this is the Insight's last year—bargain accordingly.

What's New for 2014

Changes to the Insight for 2014 are limited to minor color and trim changes.

Choosing Your Honda Insight

2014 honda insightZoom

The Insight pairs a 1.3-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with an electric motor to produce 98 horsepower and 123 pound-feet of torque. The engine itself, with two valves per cylinder, is relatively low tech, but everything else is appropriately high tech. The compact nickel-metal hydride battery pack recaptures and stores energy from vehicle braking and deceleration, which the electric motor can then turn into a power boost to aid acceleration.

The sole transmission is continuously variable (CVT), and helps the Insight to achieve EPA fuel economy ratings of is 41 mpg city and 44 mpg highway.

With Honda's tiered system, you won't have to worry about checking many option boxes—you simply buy the trim level with the features you want. Power output is measured at 98 horsepower and EPA city/highway fuel economy ranking.

Insight

Highlights for the Spartan base model include automatic climate control and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. But its 160-watt AM/FM/CD stereo system only has two speakers and you'll have to forgo aforementioned features like cruise control.

Insight LX

Don't look for lavish extras here. Buyers gain two extra speakers, a USB input for audio, cruise control, floor mats, and steering-wheel-mounted controls. Beginning at the LX level, satellite radio is available.

Insight EX

The EX adds paddle shifters to the CVT, which gives drivers the sense of traditional gear shifts. Other standard features include Bluetooth, driver and passenger vanity mirrors, a six-speaker audio system, and projector-beam headlights. Navigation is optional for EX models.
CarsDirect Tip

The Insight is less powerful, fuel-efficient, refined and roomy than its chief rival, the Toyota Prius. But the most expensive Insight costs less than the least expensive Prius, making the top-spec EX our choice for best value. Deals may get even better since 2014 will mark the last production for the year for the Insight.
