The 2012 Honda Insight, ready to go for shoppers at this Illinois Honda dealer serving Naperville, is one of the most efficient hybrid vehicles currently on the market. The Insight was designed to achieve excellent fuel economy but Honda also wanted to create a practical and affordable vehicle, making hybrid technology accessible to more people.

Honda engineers have continued to refine its design, which is why the 2012 Insight boasts higher fuel economy than ever.
EPA numbers are important, but the way you drive also affects the fuel economy you achieve. The Insight features a remarkable system that helps you monitor your driving habits and increase your fuel efficiency. It’s called Eco Assist™ and it gives you real-time feedback so you’re aware of the most efficient driving habits. It also includes a green ECON™ button that, when pressed, regulates certain vehicle functions to maximize fuel efficiency.
The advanced safety features you’d expect to find in a Honda are right there in the Insight, too at this Illinois Honda dealer serving Bolingbrook ACE™ body structure increases Insight occupant protection in frontal collisions, and makes it more crash compatible with vehicles of differing ride heights. The anti-lock braking system (ABS) uses a special modulator to pulse the brakes and help prevent wheel lockup, helping the driver retain steering control when braking hard. And the Electronic Brake Distribution system (EBD) balances the braking forces at each wheel according to how the car is dynamically loaded.
After all, the Insight might be known for its efficiency and affordability, but Honda engineers never lose their focus on safety.
