The 2012 Honda Insight changes are numerous, but small. Certainly nothing like the major transition it underwent a few years ago from two seater with its rear wheels hiding under a body skirt to the five seat sedan of today. But for perspective owners for what could be one of the best 2012 cars under 20k, these changes are a very welcome addition.
The biggest external changes you might notice if you shop on-line cars are the changes to the front grill to make it a bit more distinctive and a touch of blue highlighting to play off the knowledge that you are in fact driving a hybrid. Hey if you got it, flaunt it. There are also some changes here and there to other features like better rear window visibility, or more cup friendly cup holders. Small welcome changes in any new cars for sale.
But the big change that will likely at least matter to families looking for cheap car options for sale in Dallas for example will be the larger space to passengers sitting in the rear seat. Taking past complaints to heart, several inches of legroom have been added to make this the 2012 Honda Insight their best model yet while still keeping the price under 20k. And did we mention it still one of the few affordable 40 mpg cars?
That's right at 41 mpg city and 44 mpg highway the Insight is still one of the few 40 mpg cars that does these high mileage numbers in the city. In fact the Insight is the only car you'll find among dealership competitors or on line cars that offers 40 mpg city or better for less than $20,000. A Chevy Cruze Eco won't get even close to that on city streets.
Of course the Insight is no Prius either, especially on the highway where Toyota's favorite hybrid really starts to pull away. But unlike other new cars for sale, the Insight steps around this fact by offering itself up nearly $3000 cheaper. And if you are shopping for cheap cars for sale in Dallas, Tampa, or Tulsa then that's nothing to sneeze at, especially if you do mostly city driving. Oh, and you'll be helping the environment out. That's a big plus to driving the Insight to.
