Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Honda Insight than in the Toyota Camry Hybrid, due to the Honda Insight's smaller rear head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Camry Hybrid, the Honda Insight may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The Toyota Camry Hybrid 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Insight will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Toyota Camry Hybrid. 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 Insight and the Toyota Camry Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Insight is a little narrower than the Toyota Camry Hybrid, 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 Hybrid, which may make it easier to park.

Handling
The Honda Insight has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Camry Hybrid, 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 Hybrid. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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

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

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