2010 Honda Insight Test-Drive Update: A look around the interior

2011 Honda Insight (Weekly Test-Drive)

As we told you guys yesterday, we are test-driving the 2010 Honda Insight this week. Today we’ll give you a brief walk around the interior.

The inside of the Honda Insight will be very familiar to those who know Hondas well since it is mostly inspired by the Civic and the Fit. Besides all the standard features on the Insight, the highlight is the Multi-Information Display that holds the EcoAssist and EcoGuide information screens. The system provides you feedback on your braking, acceleration and other vehicle information to help you drive more efficiently. At the end of every drive, the EcoGuide gives you a score (in leaves) letting you know if you were kind to mother nature during your trip.

Standard features on the Insight LX include a 160-Watt AM/FM/CD Audio System, MP3 playback capability, AUX input, speed-sensitive volume control, ECON mode, automatic climate control, Power Windows with Auto-Up/Down for the driver, Tilt and Telescopic Steering Column, 60/40 Split Fold-Down Rear Seatback, the Multi-Information Display, Digital Fuel-Mileage Indicators and an Average Fuel Economy Indicators.

The Insight EX adds cruise control and the EX Navigation package adds Honda’s Satellite-Linked Navigation system (the system’s performance is a bit slow overall).

As we pointed out yesterday, one thing we’re not to found of are the paddle-shifters. It seems unnecessary to us in a hybrid vehicle – although others may disagree.

Let us know what you think after the jump and make sure you ask us all the questions you want about the Insight.
