2022 Honda Insight for Sale in North Attleboro, MA
The 2022 Honda Insight combines sharp looks with exceptional fuel economy. Its nameplate, originally used in 1999 when the two-seater gas-electric Honda Insight was introduced, still suits this vehicle. While it had a space-age look back then, it’s a sedan now, with a more conventional look – which is fitting, since hybrid cars are no longer unusual. Honda has condensed the trim lineup from three to two, with the elimination of the base LX.
Trims and Powertrain
The front-wheel-drive 2022 Honda Insight gas-electric hybrid comes in a simplified lineup of two trims: the EX and Touring. Its efficient powertrain consists of a gasoline-burning 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor (total system output: 151 horsepower) with an electronic continuously variable transmission (e-CVT). The EPA has estimated the EX’s fuel economy at 55 mpg around town and 49 mpg on the highway; the Touring is rated at 51 city/45 highway.
Comfort and Convenience
With the elimination of the LX trim, the EX technically becomes the base trim, although it’s equipped with above-average features. It gets heated exterior mirrors, push-button ignition, automatic on/off LED headlights, automatic climate control, ambient console lighting, a 12-volt power outlet, two USB ports, and Honda’s Smart Entry with Walk Away Auto Lock feature. This keyless entry system automatically locks the doors if you’ve forgotten to after leaving the vehicle. And while the ’22 Insight has the requisite backup camera, it’s a deluxe version that offers multiple angles with dynamic guidelines.
The Touring gets leather upholstery (the front seats are heated and power-adjustable) and upgrades its automatic climate control to dual-zone. It also gets a moonroof, remote start, rain-sensing windshield wipers, LED fog lights, side mirrors with integrated turn-signal indicators (LED), chrome exterior accents, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a HomeLink universal transceiver.
Safety and Technology
Both trims are set up with Honda Sensing, a standard package of driver-assist features. It consists of forward collision warning, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, lane keeping assist, lane departure warning, and traffic sign recognition. Automatic high beams and a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert are standard on both as well.
Everyone can stay connected, informed, and entertained thanks to the Insight’s well-rounded infotainment system. Both the EX and the Touring get an 8-inch touchscreen, smartphone integration (both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM satellite radio, high-definition radio, and HondaLink connected car services. The EX has eight speakers for the sound system, but the Touring upgrades to 10 speakers and a premium sound system. Other standard bonuses for the higher trim include an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot, navigation, voice recognition, and additional HondaLink subscription services.
