Honda has improved the specification and settings of its Insight hybrid in response to early customer feedback. The suspension of the low-emission, 5-door hatch has been adjusted to improve ride comfort and NVH levels, while interior trim levels have been enhanced.
The initial focus was on suspension, to which improvements have been made to address negative feedback on ride and comfort levels.
A number of chassis changes have been implemented, including: adjusting the recoil rate of the springs, changing the rear camber angles, altering the V-shape rear suspension brace and adjusting mounts. The amendments promise to deliver improved ride, handling and stability.
As well as these upgrades to suspension, Honda has added rear parking sensors to ES-model Insights and above, and has changed some trim to smarten the interior. Dashboard and seat colours have been changed to give a more uniform finish, and some plastics have been improved. Chrome rings now surround air vents, and the doors have been given a silver garnish feature.
There are also two new paint options for Insight customers, with the introduction of Dynamic Blue Pearl and Carnelian Red Pearl.
