2011 Honda Insight Comfort & Quality

7.0
Comfort & Quality
The 2011 Honda Insight might be a little lower and more rakish than other small cars, but aside from tight rear headroom it offers good comfort.

The Insight's front seats are a little short and flat, but they're covered with a nice, meshy fabric that's grippy and comfortable and there's plenty of headroom. Unfortunately, behind the front seats, it's not quite as perfect; the backseat can fit three kids across, or two adults, but headroom is very tight due to the sloping roofline.

Cargo space isn't quite as good as it looks; there's a generous 15.9 cubic feet, but it's quite shallow, and the 60/40-split backseats don't quite fold forward flat.

The 2011 Honda Insight offers comfort that's about on par with other small cars, but its rakish shape costs headroom in back.

Interior appointments in the Insight are about on par with those in Honda's other small cars—which is to say, there aren't a lot of soft-touch surfaces, but it feels tightly assembled and the dash and doors have nicely grained plastics. Ride quality is good despite the short 100-inch wheelbase, and the interior is quiet and civilized except when mashing the throttle to the floor, which causes the engine to become quite raucous.
