The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
7.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Honda Insight is one of the better-handling small hybrids, but it faces tough competitors who beat it on gas mileage, interior space, and features. Compared to the Toyota Prius, the 2014 Ford C-Max Hybrid and C-Max Energi provide more driving enjoyment as well as a more comfortable, stylish interior -- even if they don't quite measure up in real-world fuel efficiency.
