Comparison Review

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Civic as you will with the Honda Insight, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Honda Civic or the Honda Insight, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Civic and the Honda Insight have similar Destination Charges.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Civic has a much more powerful engine than the Honda Insight. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Civic and the Honda Insight.

Warranty
The Honda Civic comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Insight.
