Honda spruces up

Insight hybrid

Honda Insight, action

THE latest version of Honda's family-size Insight model has hit the streets - with a special offer that makes it by far the cheapest hybrid on the market.

Prices start at £16,325 for the SE version, but with Honda's current ‘Affordable Driving' consumer initiative, the Insight is available at £14,995 until the end of this month.

Changes to the new car see an adjusted suspension to improve ride and comfort, a higher spec interior and a new top of the range EX model.

The latter, which costs £20,215, features black leather upholstery, a DVD-based satellite navigation system and hands-free telephone.

As well as upgrades to suspension, the Japanese company has added rear parking sensors to ES-model Insights and updated the trim to smarten the interior.

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

Honda says the changes have been thanks due to customer and media reaction and the initial focus was on suspension, to which improvements have been made to address negative feedback on ride and comfort levels.

There are also two new paint options for Insight fans - Dynamic Blue Pearl and Carnelian Red Pearl.
