2000 Honda Insight 995cc petrol Electric Hybrid from UK and Ireland
Exciting, economical coupé that looks like something from a Gerry Anderson series
Very economical: I calculate that savings in road tax and fuel add up to £500 a year. I've got 84.9mpg overall since I bought it.
It's fun to drive if I choose to drive it like the coupé it is, and the instantaneous readout of fuel consumption, second by second, gives me the information I need if I choose to drive for economy.
The cargo deck is huge, and has four lashing points to secure things with.
Rear three-quarter (five o'clock) visibility is a little limited, and I have to position the car carefully and make good use of the mirrors at acutely-angled junctions.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
