Honda’s Insight looks a lot like the Prius, but that’s just pure coincidence

Honda’s new Insight concept that we saw last week has been called the ‘Prius-killer’ and the ‘Prius-fighter’ amongst other things. Well, the Honda Insight sure looks a lot like the thing its trying to kill and fight, but according to Honda that’s just pure coincidence.

According to Honda spokesman Chuck Schifsky: “It was done that way because it was the most aerodynamic design, and we were going for fuel economy.”

Schifsky says that the design for the Insight was mainly influenced by the FCX Clarity. The production version of the Honda CR-Z sport hybrid car will also look similar.
