The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
8.0
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. The 2014 Honda Civic brings better refinement back to the lineup, but there's more to come, we're told.
