2020 Honda Insight Priced From $22,930, Gets More Standard Safety Kit

Buyers looking to get a 2020 Honda Insight can now do so knowing that it features the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies as standard on all trims, as well as a brand new Platinum White Pearl exterior color.

The entry-level LX model is priced at $22,930, while the EX and Touring versions cost $24,310 and $28,340 respectively – none of these figures include the $930 destination charges though.

Compared to the 2019 model, the 2020 Insight is precisely $100 more expensive at an entry-level stage.

For performance, the Insight offers a 1.5-liter Atkinson-cylinder two-motor hybrid powertrain, putting down 151 HP for what Honda describes as “brisk acceleration”. It also has an EPA-rated 55 mpg city fuel economy figure in LX and EX trim, with best-in-class passenger space, upscale styling and cabin appointments, according to the automaker. Honda also claims that the Insight’s driving experience “far exceeds its hybrid competition.”

Regardless of which trim level you choose, you get the following features as standard: multi-element LED headlights, push-button start and the previously-mentioned Honda Sensing suite of safety features. However, if you opt for the EX model, you also get an 8-inch Display Audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration.

Meanwhile, the top of the range Touring spec adds leather seating surfaces, an 8-way power driver’s seat, Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System, dual-zone automatic climate control and more.

As far as the U.S. market is concerned, the 2020 Honda Insight is built alongside the Civic and CR-V at the automaker’s Greensburg, Indiana plant.

    This is better than the 2nd gen Insight they made, but nothing tops the original. My father had a 2001 Insight in silver, we called it bullet (real original), but we got such good fuel economy in that thing before getting a hybrid was “in” in LA. Then the Prius came around and everyone started getting pious about their fuel economy or thought they were such a saint for driving a hybrid. LA only got worse from there.

    isn’t it Honda civic?

    • Alduin

      Yeah mostly a hybrid Civic with a different front and rear end and badging.

  • TheBelltower

    These are excellent, very underrated cars. Honda doesn’t market them very well, and they look nearly the same as an Accord to those who aren’t looking closely.

    • eb110americana

      This might be the best car Honda currently sells. A great all-around vehicle.


    • J-Triumf

      But like the Civic, it’s still ugly compared to the previous generation.

      • Alduin

        The previous generation was ugly.

        • J-Triumf

          No it wasn’t, the previous gen Insight was one of the better looking cars on the road, this current one is bland and generic.

          • Alduin

            It looked like Honda tried to make a Prius and failed.

          • J-Triumf

            That comment should apply more to the current Insight.

    • Krisnadi Imam

      they call civic ugly n childish, and here we have a civic which isnt ugly nor childish… yet no one buys it because the badge is not a civic… call it a civic hybrid and ppl will line up for this thing.

    30 grand loaded, is TOO DAMN EXPENSIVE. By the time you add tax, tag, its stupid expensive. Shame, because I like this car, thise updates looks great, and specs sound good too.

    • Warren Trout

      Buy the basic model

    My 2003 Honda died in 2018 at 285,000 miles. I miss you baby.
