Used Honda Insight

Drive Home a Used Honda Insight from Middletown Honda

Used Honda InsightOne of the first truly affordable hybrids, a used Honda Insight makes for a great choice for Middletown and Mechanicstown drivers. Not only does it have a hybrid powertrain for a solid fuel economy, but it’s well equipped and has the savings that already come with used cars.

We’ve had our fair share of Insights here at Middletown Honda, though, and we know that they aren’t all the same. Here’s a quick preview of what you could expect from your used Honda Insight.

The Current Generation (2010 – Present)

Revamped for 2010, the Insight has quickly become more famous for what it did well for a decade: offering drivers an affordable and well-equipped hybrid. The latest model, the 2014 Honda Insight, represents the epitome of these updates.

Coming standard with Eco Assist technology, LED brake lights, remote entry, and comfort features like a leather-wrapped steering wheel, the entry-level Insight is impressive enough. While fuel economy will vary from year to year, the 2014 Honda Insight receives an EPA-estimated 44 highway mpg.*

Many drivers have opted to upgrade, though, and we typically see LX and EX trim levels coming in with added features, including options like satellite-linked navigation and Bluetooth phone and audio streaming. These models should all qualify for Honda’s Certified Pre-Owned program as well, giving you added warranty coverage for peace of mind.

The First Gen Insight (2000 to 2009)

The initial Insight was quite different than it is now, but it received an update partway through that made it more like the current model. Some drivers might seek out those early models, though. They have some of the best fuel economies in a small car.

Would you believe that early manual transmission models were rated by the EPA for as much as 52 mpg in mixed driving situations? That bests many current hybrid models nearly 15 years later. Features were a bit sparse on early models, with only one trim level available, but a CD player and options like automatic climate control mean that drivers probably won’t notice any difference from most modern vehicles.
