Expert Quotes:

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




While it's still one of the most economical gasoline cars offered in the U.S., the 2013 Honda Insight faces increasing competition both in its niche--lower-priced subcompact hybrids--and in larger, pricier hybrids that return better combined gas mileage numbers. And in the subcompact category especially, its price premium over conventional gasoline-engined subcompacts that come reasonably close may make the numbers a hard sell.

The 2013 Insight is rated at 42 mpg combined (41 mpg city, 44 mpg highway). That's not only lower than three more expensive compact or mid-size cars--the Toyota Prius (50 mpg combined), Ford C-Max (47 mpg combined), and even Honda's own compact Civic Hybrid (44 mpg combined)--it's lower than the Toyota Prius C subcompact, at 50 mpg combined.

So while the Insight remains a viable competitor, it's facing a tougher array of competitors this year--especially among buyers willing to pay about $5,000 more for a larger car to get better gas mileage.

 

Conclusion

The 2013 Honda Insight gets worse gas mileage than several major competitors, though it's still among the most fuel-efficient cars sold in the U.S.

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.
