Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Civic offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Honda Insight with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Honda Insight will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Civic will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Insight. 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.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic is about the same width as the Honda Insight. When looking at overall length, the Honda Civic takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Honda Insight.

Handling
The Honda Civic has about the same turning radius as the Honda Insight, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

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.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Honda Civic does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Honda Insight.

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. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Honda Civic as you will in the Honda Insight.

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