Honda is updating its one of the most popular cars in the US. The 2021 Insight gets more equipment and, more important, some improved safety systems.

The 2021 Honda Insight begins arriving at dealerships, featuring newly available blind spot information (BSI) with Cross Traffic Monitor along with a new exterior color—Radiant Red Metallic. The 2021 Insight is a premium compact sedan with EPA city fuel economy rating up to 55 mpg. The 2021 Insight carries a retail price of $22,930.

The Honda Insight, with standard Honda Sensing technology, is the only compact hybrid sedan to earn a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for 2020. Also, the Insight recently received a top-five green score from the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE), beating out multiple plug-in and battery electric vehicles.
