A 1.5 L gas engine is standard under the hood of the 2020 Honda Insight. This 107-horsepower powertrain includes DOHC valves with the i-VTEC system.

Additional electrical power is generated by a lithium-ion battery. You can activate the EV Mode to draw energy only from the hybrid powertrain. The ECON Mode utilizes an optimum combination of fuel and electricity to propel the 2020 Insight. When you merge on the highway, select the Sport Mode for a dynamic ride. Engineered for efficient cruising, the e-CVT system drives this sedan. Deceleration selectors give you excellent control of the electronic gearbox on the freeway.
