- Gas mileage can vary on serveral variables.
Purchased As New
Well let me compare the Insight to it's other Japanese rivalry, the Prius. I have driven both cars, but I have driven the Insight a good 15k miles, and the Prius less then 5k.
The Insight seems really responsive compared to the Prius, the handling doesn't feel nearly as "floaty". The Insight I used had paddleshifters that used the CV Transmission to fake gears (7 Speed) it's more for show then anything else, however it's not impossible to have a little fun turning on sport-mode and turning off traction control (who needs it anyways? You have 98HP not 300HP)
As far as gas mileage goes, make sure your tires are good on air, keep your compost and all your reusable grocery bags out of the trunk, anything with extra weight goes out. Even your friends. They either pitch in for gas money or they can walk. The good part about this car is you can buy some organic brownies with that extra gas money since your get around 45+ MPG, unless your hipster friends are fat then your looking at around 38 MPG. Plus, now you have a reason to not let fat chicks in the car.
