Honda raises stakes

with Insight

HONDA is putting on the style with its Insight hybrid by adding a new flagship EX model packed with extra kit and luxury.

The EX features black leather upholstery and DVD sat-nav plus hands-free telephone equipment, while interior trim levels have enhanced across the Insight line-up.

It follows early customer feedback, which has also led to the suspension being adjusted to improve ride quality and comfort levels.

A number of chassis changes have been made, including adjusting the recoil rate of the springs, changing the rear camber angles, altering the V-shape rear suspension brace and adjusting mounts.

Honda has also added rear parking sensors to ES-model Insights and above, and has changed some trim to smarten the interior.

Dashboard and seat colours have been upgraded to give a more uniform finish, plastics have been improved, chrome rings now surround air vents and the doors have been given a silver garnish.

There are also two new paint options with the arrival of Dynamic Blue Pearl and Carnelian Red Pearl.

Pricing for the Insight starts at £16,325 for the SE model, but with Honda's current Affordable Driving consumer offer, the hybrid is available at £14,995 until the end of September.

The high spec EX model with leather upholstery starts at £20,215.
