Americans will have the 2012 Honda Insight on the market

The 2012 model year Insight will be introduced on the US market by Honda. The model features the same IMA system that includes a 1.3-liter petrol unit and a 10 kW electric motor, together being able to produce 98 horsepower and 123 lb.-ft. of torque. The CVT controls the flow of power that now comes with a reduced friction.
The modifications brought to the exterior include a revised front grille, revamped front and rear fascias, new wheels design, redesigned light clusters and underbody changes.
Thanks to the CVT modifications and the aerodynamic ones, the efficiency increased of 1 mpg from the outgoing model's 40 mpg in the city, 43 mpg on the highway and 41 mpg in the city.
The 2012 Insight features a modified rear bench, new seat fabrics and a new instrument cluster background. Also Honda had improved the rear visibility, introducing rear hatch changes.
The starting price of the 2012 Insight is $ 19.120, so $ 150 premium over the model it replaces. Also, you should know the model is already available for order.
