With EPA ratings of 40 mpg city, 43 highway, the Insight isn't nearly as fuel-efficient as the first-generation Insight two-seater, or as the Toyota Prius, which sports ratings of 51/48. But after the Prius, the Insight is tied with Honda's own Civic Hybrid for the runner-up position for 2011.
The Honda Insight was conceived as a vehicle that would be a unique body style, like the Toyota Prius, but a bit more affordable with the lower costs associated with Honda's IMA mild-hybrid system. Unfortunately, the Insight has ended up living in the shadow of the Prius—and this is an area of the market where fuel-economy numbers mean everything.
