What the Year 2022 Brings In?
The 2022 model year edition of Honda Insight has dropped down the base LX model from its current year lineup, so you are left with only two trim choices; the EX and the Touring. We must make a mention here that there is a slight price increase in both of these trim versions because of the brushing up of the features and a slight upgrade in the interior layout.
The Drive System
The 2022 Honda Insight runs on a two-motor hybrid system that apart from a 107 horsepower making 1.5-liter inline-4 gas engine uses a 120-hp electric motor. The powers of both reach the front wheels. Surprisingly enough the 2022 Honda Insight does not have a transmission and it is either the electric motor that propels the power directly to the wheels, or the drive system that directly clutches in the engine, giving it the best possible efficiency.
Behind the wheels, the 2022 Honda Insight feel outright responsive and because of this you feel it can take up any task you assign to it. With the same power train combination the 2022 Honda Insight could earn a mileage of 52 mpg or 48 mpg from highway and city drives, as the EPA estimates.
The interior of the 2022 Honda Insight officially carries five belted seats and leaves 15.1 cubic feet of space at the trunk to carry your travel bags.
Safety and Other Features
Both the Federal and independent testers gave the 2022 Honda Insight a spotless report card and five stars from the NHTSA as well as a Top Safety Pick+ from the IIHS for having the right blend of safety and driver assistance features like adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors with rear cross-traffic alerts, automatic emergency braking, active lane control, and traffic sign recognition to ensure there is least scope for a collision even if you miss one or two clues and commit some crucial drive mistakes, assured the Emeryville Honda dealership.
