After all, the Insight might be known for its efficiency and affordability, but Honda engineers never lose their focus on safety.
1) An efficient machine, and 2) an efficient driver. Working in unison. The Eco Assist feature makes you more aware of your driving style, and helps you get the most out of your Insight's hybrid feature.
Eco Assist™[ is composed of two basic functions:
- A sophisticated feedback system that teaches you to drive more efficiently
- An ECON button that helps aid in optimizing your vehicle's fuel efficiency if used in conjunction with responsibly efficient driving practices
One of the ways we've been able to make the Insight so affordable is by leveraging existing technologies we've developed in other models, such as the Civic and the Fit. These technologies include various engine and chassis components. Retaining value while lowering costs requires ingenious and imaginative engineering solutions. For that, we looked to our talented engineers—and the IMA® system.
With the introduction of the newly updated 2012 Insight, Honda is making hybrid technology available to more people than ever before with a new starting MSRP $18,350[. This trim maintains key features important to the extra conscientious value shopper.
Because Honda engineers focused their cost-cutting measures on the engine, they were able to develop the rest of the car in a fashion that still manages to retain value and keep the price tag low. Then again, that's what Honda has always been about—providing more value, efficiency and performance for every dollar.
