The Honda Insight hybrid has proven its worth among customers and the demand continues to push the Insight forward into the 2021 model year. In an age when many new models get introduced and retired a few years later in favor of a fresh start, the Insight has survived since the millennium started and is showing no signs of slowing down.
The 2021 model year uses the redesign from 2019 that made the hybrid look like a permanent cornerstone of the Honda lineup. The current Insight looks aerodynamic, sleek, and professional. The grille has a sort of minimalist beauty, and the chrome trim around the windows helps the whole vehicle design flow from front to back.

Perhaps one of the best features of the 2021 Honda Insight is how it uses design to normalize hybrid vehicles. As the industry moves closer and closer to accepting hybrids as an essential part of an automaker’s lineup, the Insight is doesn’t try too hard to look like a hybrid. It simply looks like itself, which will help skeptical customers understand that hybrids are practical, and far more common than they think.
The safety technology and entertainment equipment make the 2021 Honda Insight look and feel its model year. It’s not running short on technology, and should attract plenty of younger buyers willing to adapt changes like not having a traditional shift knob.
