All Insights come standard with antilock brakes (front disc/rear drum)
Edmunds

As of this writing, the 2010 Honda Insight hasn't been crash-tested yet. However, Honda has a long safety pedigree, and editors at TheCarConnection.com expect better-than-average scores for this compact 2010 Honda hybrid. Stay tuned to TheCarConnection.com for the latest updates on the 2010 Insight's crash-test scores.

Aside from the pending crash-test scores, TheCarConnection.com's editors note that the 2010 Honda Insight has most of the requisite safety equipment. Standard safety features on the 2010 Insight include "antilock brakes and side-impact and side curtain airbags," according to Cars.com. Cars.com reviewers also point out that "the front seats also have active head restraints." Unfortunately, Edmunds reports that the base 2010 Honda hybrid "LX lacks stability control and traction control, which come standard on the EX." These lifesaving features alone might make the jump up to the EX trim of the 2010 Honda Insight worth the extra couple thousand dollars that the upgraded model will cost you.

One area where this 2010 Honda excels is, surprisingly, driver visibility. Typically, these teardrop-shaped hatchbacks have poor rearward visibility, but Automobile Magazine reports that "rear visibility isn't bad through the CRX-style split hatch glass" that adorns the tailgate of the 2010 Honda Insight. Cars.com also states that "visibility is very good to the front and sides" from the driver's seat of the Honda Insight.

Conclusion

Crash-test data should only confirm that the 2010 Honda Insight is family-safe.

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.
