Honda can take honors for being the first automobile manufacturer
to put an electric/gasoline hybrid car on the road in the
United States. This was the Insight. For 2003, the Insight
remains just as environmental as it is sleek and sporty.
The 2003 Honda Insight falls into the sub-compact vehicle
category with more than one 2-door hatchback trim to choose

Insight makes a definite statement.

is what sets it apart from almost every other car on the
road in America today. Let start with an impressive 1.0-litre
in-line 3-cylinder gasoline engine. Now remember that size
is not what impresses here. It's the electric motor part
that does. Together this electric motor/gasoline engine
gets 61/68 (city/hwy) mpg. How can you go wrong with that?
Environmental responsibility that seriously eases your pocket
book. The Insight puts out 73 horsepower @ 5700 rpm with
91 lb-ft of torque @ 2000 rpm.
The first two base model trims come with a 5-speed manual
transmission, while the third trim comes with a continuously
variable automatic transmission.
