The main part of the update of the 2020 model year concerns the expansion of the functionality of the Honda Sensing active safety system. Now the list of systems is the same in all configurations, including the base.

The only external difference between the modified Honda Insight can be considered a new body color – it is a shade of white mother of pearl Platinum White Pearl. Another highlight of the new multimedia system with an 8-inch screen and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto – her car gets already in the middle configuration EX.

There are three equipment levels in total: LX, EX and Touring. The company believes that in this case there should be no division by the number and capabilities of active safety systems, and the Honda Sensing complex is the same in all versions of the model. In version 2020, the capabilities of the automatic braking system were expanded, incl. when reversing and in the dark, and there is also an accelerator lock.

The power plant remains the same: it is based on a 1.5-liter gasoline engine operating on the Atkinson cycle. The total capacity of the installation – 151 hp Honda claims that the car has “lively acceleration dynamics” and “driving insight is not at all like a conventional hybrid.”

Prices for Insight in the US market have not changed, although the basic equipment has become more equipped. She went up by $ 100 and now costs $ 22,930. Prices for the other versions have not changed: EX costs $ 24,310, and Touring – $ 28,240 (prices are given without taking into account a delivery fee of $ 930).

The American market remains key to the Insight, and this model is also being assembled in the USA, at the Honda plant in Greensburg, PCs. Indiana along with Civic and CR-V.
