The Insight is the lowest-priced hybrid you can buy, and that may or may not be a good thing. It was designed around price, and uses a simplified hybrid system in which both gas and electric modes use the gas engine for power. The Insight is less efficient than a Toyota Prius, but also cheaper to make. A 2012 update brought an upgraded interior, more insulation, and redesigned nav. While it rides and handles like a Honda should, the Insight is more of a hybridized Fit than a bargain Prius.
