Honda Insight vs. Prius c

Toyota released the third Prius in 2010 it was immediately to the second generation Insight Honda released in 2009.  In my it was not a fair comparison, since the was generally $3-4000 more Now that Toyota has released the c, which is in the same price as the Insight, a more honest can be made.

Both the Insight and the c start at less than with the Prius c base slightly more expensive at while the Insight starts at The reality is the base model of car will be hard to find and not to own. Most people want to step up to the Insight LX or the c model Two or Three.  It seems that Honda and Toyota won t carry very many, if of the base models.

Suffice to say, that the two cars are similarly equipped the difference isn’t much the Insight LX about $400 then the Prius c Two.

So you get past the price, how do the Insight and the c compare? The first thing hybrid buyers will at is the miles per gallon. Here the c has a distinct advantage with a city/highway mileage of 50 miles per The Insight averages 42 mpg, 18% less than the Prius c.  8 miles per gallon is a significant based on my experience with a 3rd Prius, the difference might not be as as the numbers indicate.  My Prius delivered the miles per gallon it was at during the winter months.

The Toyota sales people to me that this was normal; the would not get the stated miles per until its battery warmed up so on drives its mpg suffers. My 2nd generation Civic hybrid wasn t as affected by the cold weather as the possibly because it didn’t as heavily on its battery to improve its

Where the Insight shines is the experience. The steering seems responsive, the acceleration is better and the is quieter (at least it seemed way to me). In addition, the Insight s interior appearance is better the Prius.

The Insight dashboard has a layout, its gauges are larger and to read and overall the interior has a subdued sophistication that the c lacks.

The Insight s split may take getting used to.

The c has a small, but usable rear-window.

One where the Prius c has a slight is rear window visibility. The has a split rear-window (like the generation Prius) while the c has a small one-piece rear-window.  If, me, you live in the Midwest, it s nice to a rear window where the can clear off most of the window the winter instead of just the top

Surprisingly, even though the is more than a foot than the Prius c, it has less capacity. According to Toyota the c has 17.1 cubic feet the rear-seats up, while according to the Insight only has 15.9 feet. The only reason I can see for the is the Prius c has a much taller compartment than the Insight.

Either one of these two cars is a choice. Both have a set of standard features and both are by companies noted for solid, hybrids. The final decision may be subjective.

Do you like one car’s better than the others? Do you the handling of the Honda versus the visibility of the Prius c? Do you need to eek mile out of every gallon of gas or is 40+ mpg enough?  Making a decision the two might even come to where you live.

I think in the and Northern states the Prius c have a slight advantage of its better visibility.

The table details some of the differences, and the between the Insight and the Prius c.  As you can these are two well equipped
