2020 Honda Insight vs. Its Competition

2020 Honda Insight
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

Among hybrids, the Insight fares well.

The Hyundai Ioniq can be less expensive, but its interior lacks pizzazz.

The Prius’ liftback shape will draw some in for its practicality, but also turn some away for its odd look.

The Niro is a traditional hatchback with plenty of usable space, although its interior can be dark.

The Honda Civic is related to the Insight and more expressive, although it’s not a hybrid.

The Corolla Hybrid is new for 2020 and takes the Insight’s approach: inconspicuous efficiency.
