Having the new 2018 Honda Insight might be a new step towards beating the competition on the market, or simply a new name of the list of the perfect family cars. Whatever it is the name Insight is not new on the market and surely promises great adventures in the future. The main reason for that is changed outside design that includes great details, already seen on the previous model but improved enough to bring a fresh look. As we saw on first photos, even new Insight is not finished yet, it will beat Prius, main competitor in the class.
As we said, 2018 Honda Insight has been shown on test driving with protected bumpers and still not defined angles and curves, but we could imagine the final look of this car. Short and sharpen front end has modern designed thin LED lights, with chromatic grille and mesh air intake in the bottom of the bumper. Also shorten rear end is curved and has some decorations in shape of the truck door, while the bottom of the rear end should be wide and strong, with addition below the truck door and modern designed rear lights. The sloping roof provides the more rounded shape of the whole car.
The inside of 2018 Honda Insight is much better designed than on the last model and practically finished before test driving. As we could see on photos, it has a wide modern dashboard, made of leather with chromatic details on the bottom as well as on steering wheel and doors. Together with leather goes quality plastic and possibly quality fabric in lower trims. Design of this cabin should be the same as on current Jazz. In terms of technology, it is worth of mentioning such devices as a large touchscreen with rich infotainment system incorporated inside and quality audio system.
There are high chances that 2018 Honda Insight will get the 1.3-liter engine as current Jazz has or 1.0-liter like on current Civic. Average strength is around 129 horsepower. Some rumors said that we could expect hybrid engine version together with these two, to be more competitive with Prius. Possibly transmission is CVT one, which should provide faster acceleration and stability.

According to the information we got, 2018 Honda Insight could be a truly family sedan, with perfectly matched fuel economy and engine strength with design and spaced cabin with additional cargo space. If you liked it, you should be prepared for the price of at least $20,000. First models should be on the market at the end of 2018.
