Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Camry than the Honda Insight, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Camry, the Honda Insight may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Toyota Camry requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Honda Insight, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Based on MSRP, the Honda Insight is clearly a better financial choice over the Toyota Camry. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Honda Insight will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Toyota Camry.

Dimensions
The Honda Insight is a little narrower than the Toyota Camry, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The Honda Insight is slightly shorter than the Toyota Camry, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Honda Insight has much less torque than the Toyota Camry, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Honda Insight has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Camry, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Insight is significantly less powerful than the Toyota Camry. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Honda Insight and the Toyota Camry. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Honda Insight as you will in the Toyota Camry.

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