Sophisticated Cabin Features
The Honda Insight comes outfitted with a 6-speaker sound system and the 5-inch Color LCD screen that you can use to select your media options from the road.

Honda Sensing® Safety Features
Another amazing component included with Honda hybrids is Honda Sensing®. This system is a network of driver-assisting technology features that use exterior sensors to predict possible collisions or lane departures. The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ and Forward Collision Warning work together to detect a possible impact and use brake pressure to reduce the severity of the crash while giving you a chance to react and prevent it.
Honda Sensing® also includes Lane Keeping Assist, Road Departure Mitigation, and Traffic Sign Recognition System. The Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow lets you set a speed and distance, so your vehicle will adapt to the flow of traffic.
