The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Honda Insight lives in the shadow of the iconic Toyota Prius, but it's more enjoyable to drive. The 2011 Honda Fit is like a mini-minivan in some respects, with an incredibly space-efficient design; yet it's peppy, frugal, and fun to drive.
