TORRANCE, Calif. — The 2021 Honda Insight begins arriving at dealerships today, March 24  featuring newly available blind spot information (BSI) with Cross Traffic Monitor along with a new exterior color—Radiant Red Metallic.

With best-in-class passenger space, upscale interior appointments and a refined driving experience, the 2021 Insight is a premium compact sedan with EPA city fuel economy rating up to 55 mpg2. The 2021 Insight carries a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP1) of $22,930 (excluding $955 destination and handling).

The 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.

Available in LX, EX, and Touring trims, all Insights come standard with multi-element LED headlights, push-button start, and the Honda Sensing® suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies.

New this year, Insight EX adds blind spot information and Rear Cross Traffic Monitor, while the eight-inch Display Audio with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration remains standard.

Insight Touring adds leather seating surfaces, an eight-way power driver’s seat, Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™, dual-zone automatic climate control, and more.

The 2021 Honda Insight for the North American market is made exclusively at the company’s Greensburg, Ind., auto plant alongside Civic and CR-V, using domestic and globally sourced parts.

Its hybrid powertrain, including the 1.5-liter Atkinson-cycle, two-motor system and intelligent power unit (IPU) containing the hybrid battery pack, is produced in Ohio.
