Since the 1970’s, Honda has been pioneering the development of lowemissions, high-fuel efficiency vehicles. The first generation Honda Insight was launched in 1999 to meet technological challenges and since then, Honda’s ongoing pursuit in advanced technology has led to further developments of next-generation hybrid technologies.
The All-New Honda Insight, introduced recently by Malaysia Honda, pioneers a new era of affordability of hybrid vehicles, creating a new market value for compact hatchback entry hybrid vehicles. Its sharp wedgeshaped body ends with an aero tail, sparking off an athletic motion that is inspired by the Aero Athlete design concept. Overall, it conjures an image of poised elegance, one that is further enhanced by its muscular, well-defined bodylines.
While the 1.3L i-VTEC engine serves as the main power source, the Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) system provides the additional power as and when it is needed.
The interior finishing inside is just as stylish while providing superior cabin comfort to both front and rear passengers. Compared with the previous generation’s technology, the roomier interior is made possible thanks to an improved Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) system that incorporates an Intelligent Power Unit (IPU) that is 19% smaller and 28% lighter, now placed beneath the rear cargo area. This allows you to enjoy more space when the 60:40 seats are folded to a full flat seat, while the cargo accommodates up to 3 golf bags neatly.
In addition to its unique touches to make every day driving more fun and practical, the All-New Honda Insight helps drivers realise its full potential in both performance and fuel economy. You are bound to be more a more attentive driver with the Eco Assist which incorporates various functions that helps you improve your mileage. The ECON button harmonises a range of controls to help you save more energy and fuel while the speedometer changes colour from blue to green, immediately showing you if you are driving fuel efficiently.
It would not be too long before you start changing your driving habits, especially when you are evaluated by the Eco Guide, Eco Score and Energy Flow Display which provides feedback on your driving cycles in the multi-information display all of which makes for an intuitive and exciting drive.
The All-New Honda Insight is aimed at making environmentally-responsible driving more affordable and accessible to everyone. Visit your nearest Honda authorised dealer and ask for a test drive to fully assess its ride quality and advanced eco functions.
The Multi-information Display has a range of functions that enables drivers to gauge their current and lifetime driving practices.
