2003 Honda Insight - Price Quote

Visit Honda for more information on the Honda Insight.

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 from. Take a look, and we think you will agree that the Insight makes a definite statement.

Available Models
There are three trims available to the 2003 Honda Insight: manual transmission base model, manual transmission with air conditioning, and continuously variable transmission with air conditioning (CVT).

Interior Features
Inside the standard base model 2003 Honda Insight, you can find an air filter, power steering, power mirrors, windows and door locks, AM/FM cassette stereo system, and tachometer. Inside the next two trims, add air conditioning with automatic climate control.

Exterior Features
The aerodynamic rear fender skirts are probably the most defining exterior feature of the Insight. Couple these with lightweight alloy wheels, heat-rejecting tinted glass, and body-coloured dual power mirrors and the funky exterior of the Insight is complete.

What you will find under the hood of the 2003 Honda Insight 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.

Safety and Security
The 2003 Honda Insight comes with dual front airbags, power-assisted ventilated front disc/rear drum ABS brakes, and dual-side impact door beams. Also standard for your security are keyless remote entry, and Immobilizer anti-theft deterrent system that prevents the Insight from being started up if an unauthorized key is used.
