40 mpg city, 43 highway
U.S. EPA

Our Insight has been averaging about 38 mpg so far, putting it between the Civic Hybrid at 37 mpg overall and our current mileage champ, the outgoing Prius, at 44 mpg
Consumer Reports




The 2012 Honda Insight offers good fuel economy, but its price premium over conventional gasoline-engined subcompacts that come reasonably close may make the numbers a hard sell.

For 2012, all gas-mileage ratings have gone up by 1 mpg. The 2012 Insight is rated at 41 mpg city, 44 mpg highway, and 42 mpg combined. That's not as efficient as the tiny, two-seat first-generation Insight, nor does it match the 2012 Toyota Prius (50 mpg combined) or even Honda's own 2012 Civic Hybrid (44 mpg combined), though the Civic Hybrid is considerably pricier than the Insight.

 

Conclusion

The 2012 Honda Insight is rated at 42 mpg combined, which is lower than not only the Toyota Prius but also Honda's own 2012 Civic Hybrid, both of them larger than the Insight (albeit also pricier).

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
