Safety is a prime consideration with any new car, and today's hybrids offer all the choices of safety equipment and options as many luxury cars. With the Insight and Prius, the Toyota package of standard gear sets it a notch above the Honda. With the 2010 Insight, electronic stability control isn’t offered on the base model of the 2010 Honda Insight; otherwise its credentials look promising, though it hasn't yet been crash-tested. TheCarConnection.com rates its safety at 8 out of 10.
