The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Honda Insight lives in the shadow of the iconic Toyota Prius, but it's more enjoyable to drive. 51 mpg city! The 2011 Toyota Prius remains the highest-mileage hybrid on the market, but that doesn't get in the way of practicality or comfort.
