The 2012 Insight houses state-of-the-art technology that positions the hybrid as an extremely powerful yet fuel-efficient vehicle for Stillwater Honda shoppers. With the innovative Integrated Motor Assist IMA® system, the Insight is one of the most future-forward hybrids in the market.
With the IMA System, electric motors work closely with the gasoline engine to provide additional power and torque in assist mode. Since the motor has an extremely thin design, it sits nicely between the engine and the transmission. Furthermore, the motor works as a generator for the IMA system during deceleration, and a starter that quickly spins the engine up to idle speed.
The Insight’s 1.3-liter 8-valve i-VTEC® 4-cylinder engine and DC-brushless electric motor is paired with a continuously variable transmission, positioning the vehicle as an extremely efficient car. While the vehicle’s fuel mileage depends on how the vehicle is maintained and driven, it’s estimated the 2012 Insight attains a combined fuel economy of 42 miles per gallon.
Though it’s already extremely efficient, Honda takes the Insight even farther. Thanks to the unique Eco Assist™ system, Stillwater Honda drivers can expect increased efficiency and power. With the ECON button, motorists can control the functions of the vehicle while a feedback system monitors you driving performance. When finished traveling, Stillwater Honda drivers can then learn how they have been driving and how to drive more efficiently in the future.
Sharing a similar design to the limitedly-released FCX Clarity, the Insight is bound to turn the heads of other motorists. Ultra-modern projector-beam headlights not only define the vehicle’s front-end design, they’re extremely helpful. The light’s level of visibility is expressed with their bright, wide range, while LED brake lights deliver the same quality in the rear of the vehicle.
The five-passenger hybrid also features some interior revamps in 2012. A more spacious cabin for passengers and cargo make the vehicle a prime candidate for an active lifestyle. In addition to space, Stillwater Honda shoppers will love the host of technology and convenience features installed all over the vehicle.
On the steering wheel, drivers will notice racing-inspired paddle shifters, giving drivers easy access with just the left of a finger. The shifters offer motorists to access the vehicle’s continuously variable transmission (CVT) with 7 speeds, making it fast and easy to achieve quick and precise shifts. The CVT offers a fun, smooth driving experience with top-notch acceleration. Other steering wheel-mounted controls give drivers access to the Multi-Information Display, audio, cruise control and phone controls.
As expected in a Honda, the 2012 Honda Insight holds extraordinary safety features, starting with the Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure. This element is a Honda-exclusive body design, enhancing occupant protection and crash compatibility in frontal collisions. The ACE design employs a group of interwoven structural elements to distribute crash energy more evenly throughout the front of the vehicle.
Another feature, the anti-lock braking system (ABS), uses a distinct part to pulse the brakes, preventing wheel lockup. This also helps drivers stay better in control when braking hard and abruptly. Depending on how much weight in the vehicle and where, the Electronic Brake Distribution system (EBD) balances the braking forces at each wheel.
These are just a few of the top-tier safety features Stillwater Honda shoppers will find in the 2012 Insight. For more information about the 2012 Honda Insight or to experience all it has to offer first hand, call the leading Stillwater Honda dealer at 405-335-0050.
