2020 Honda Insight Has Arrived at Dealerships, Starting at $22,930
The 2020 Honda Insight, with its best-in-class passenger space and efficient hybrid powertrain, began arriving at dealerships yesterday with a starting MSRP of $22,930, excluding a $930 destination and handling charge.
Assembled at Honda’s auto plant in Greensburg, Indiana, the 2020 Insight is largely unchanged, the 2020 base EX model costing only $100 more than the outgoing 2019 model. Standard equipment includes keyless start, the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies (including autonomous emergency braking and adaptive cruise control), and LED headlights. A Platinum White Pearl paint color is new for 2020.
The middle EX trim costs $285 more than the outgoing model as it now includes an 8-inch touch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, where before it only had a 5-inch display. It also comes with keyless entry and an eight-speaker sound system.

The Insight Touring remains the top-of-the-line trim and also $285 higher than the 2019 version. It comes with leather upholstery, heated power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and built-in navigation.
But the primary reason to get a Honda Insight has nothing to do with trim level and everything to do with the Ohio-built powertrain offered in every model — a 1.5-liter Atkinson-cycle four-cylinder paired with a hybrid system that makes 151 hp and 197 lb-ft of torque and, more importantly, that has an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 52 mpg combined (55 mpg in the city and 49 mpg on the highway).
