Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Insight than the Toyota Yaris Sedan, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Yaris Sedan, drivers may find the Honda Insight a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Honda Insight requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Toyota Yaris Sedan, 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 Toyota Yaris Sedan is clearly a better financial choice over 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 Toyota Yaris Sedan will cost more in transportation costs than the Honda Insight.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Yaris Sedan is much slimmer than the Honda Insight, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Toyota Yaris Sedan, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Honda Insight.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Toyota Yaris Sedan transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Honda Insight.

Handling
The Toyota Yaris Sedan has a significantly smaller turning radius than the Honda Insight, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Toyota Yaris Sedan and the Honda Insight. The Toyota Yaris Sedan has less cargo capacity than the Honda Insight, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.
