2012 Honda Insight Quick Glance

Honda has recently introduced the new 2012 Honda Insight! New for 2012, the Insight features a revised and more spacious interior. The use of smaller internal components allows for more cabin and cargo space, making the Insight family-friendly and versatile. And the Insight was designed and built from the ground up to be what it is: a hybrid.

The 2012 Insight bears a striking family resemblance to the highly progressive FCX Clarity fuel cell vehicle. The front of the Insight is strong and lean with eye-catching projector-beam headlights. The taller rear helps this 5-door hybrid slip easily through the air, and unique LED brake lights complete the look.

The Insight was designed with a low center of gravity and a 5-passenger cabin. Five-door access helps meet the needs of an active lifestyle. The advanced safety features you’d expect to find in a Honda are right there in the Insight, too. ACM body structure increases Insight occupant protection in frontal collisions, and makes it more crash compatible with vehicles of differing ride heights. The anti-lock braking system (ABS) uses a special modulator to pulse the brakes and help prevent wheel lockup, helping the driver retain steering control when braking hard. And the Electronic Brake Distribution system (EBD) balances the braking forces at each wheel according to how the car is dynamically loaded.
