2012 Honda Insight Fuel Economy

9.0
On Fuel Economy

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.

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).
