Safety in the Insight starts with Honda’s innovative Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure. The design utilizes a complex network of frame structures to absorb crash energy and distribute it away from the occupants. It also minimizes the amount of force transferred to the other vehicle involved, keeping everyone on the road safer.
The Insight includes a long list of passive safety features—such as seat belts, airbags, and locks— that may go on unnoticed but are there for you when you need them.
With active safety features, drivers can depend on the Insight to perform at its best, even in inclement weather or challenging road conditions. These features help the Insight maintain good tractive control, come to a complete stop more quickly in an emergency situation, and keep you informed of changes in tire pressure.
Every model of the insight comes equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera that allows drivers to check their surroundings before backing out. And with guidelines as a standard feature and dynamic guidelines as an upgrade on the two upper trim levels, drivers can maneuver in and out of tight spaces with ease. The camera has three distinct views, each with an optimal angle for different driving situations.
The Honda Sensing suite of driver-assistive technology features comes standard on every model of the Insight. These features help drivers stay safe with systems that warn, prevent, and mitigate incidents on the road.
A standard feature on the EX and Touring trims, Honda LaneWatch helps drivers see more by eliminating the blind spot. A small camera is mounted on the passenger’s side exterior mirror and displays a live video feed of activity when a right lane change is signaled. The video displays on the 8-inch audio touchscreen inside the cabin and allows drivers to see up to four times more than when using the mirrors alone.
As drivers explore the upper trim levels, there are even more safety features to note. The EX and Touring trims add more technology and connectivity with an SMS text messaging function and smartphone integration, which allow drivers to safely access devices when behind the wheel. And the navigation system with voice recognition allows drivers to input instructions without taking their hands off the wheel.
