Honda will update the suspension, colors and interior trim offerings for the Insight hybrid.

In need of an update

A better ride coming soon

In some respects the Honda Insight has been a failure. Sales of the hybrid have fallen fall short of Honda’s expectations and many consumers – even Consumer Reports – have slammed the shoddy ride quality of the Insight.

Fortunately, a number of new upgrades to the vehicle are in the works.

According to reports coming out of the UK, but applicable globally, a new suspension with “an adjusted spring recoil-rate, new rear axle mounts and an adjustment to rear camber angles” should provide Insight drivers with a much smoother ride.

Likewise, the new Insight will offer new colors and better interior materials, including leather.
