Honda Insight Malaysia 2011

 Honda Malaysia has brought in the new Honda Insight to replace Honda Civic Hybrid and the price will be at RM98,000 for the new petrol electric hybrid by Honda. It was launched yesterday at the Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show (KLIMS) at PWTC. The Honda Insight wil be powered by an improved 1.3 liter i-VTEC engine which is similar to the Honda Civic Hybrid that produces 98hp at 5800 rpm. The Insight will be using the Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT)

In keeping with the car's green theme, appropriate driver aids are integrated into the vehicle's control systems to encourage gentler driving behaviours. The Ecological Drive Assist System (Eco Assist) combines functions such as a driver-activated ECON mode and real-time fuel economy display to help the drive optimize fuel consumption in a journey.

Safety-wise, the Insight has a 6-star rating by JNCAP for driver safety, and 5-star for passenger safety. Standard safety gear includes dual airbags, ABS, EBD, active head rests, and pedestrian friendly front crumple zones. The chassis design features Honda's Advanced Compatibiliy Engineering (ACE) structure, which reduces injury potential for occupants of both the Insight and also the colliding vehicle.
