The Insight delivers on what's promised by its EPA ratings; although its official numbers aren't quite at the top of the class, it achieved impressive efficiency in our real-world testing.

Honda provides two separate EPA ratings for the Insight: a higher set of numbers for the lighter LX and EX trims and another, lower set for the heavier, better-equipped Insight Touring. There's a 4-mpg difference between the two, and both fall a few miles per gallon short of the Toyota Prius and Hyundai Ioniq's ratings.

We've devised our own fuel-economy test in an attempt to replicate how most people drive on the highway. Our procedure entails a 200-mile out-and-back loop on Michigan's I-94 highway. We maintain a GPS-verified 75 mph and use the cruise control as much as possible to mimic the way many drivers behave during long trips.

The Insight achieved 47 mpg on our highway test, an impressive result. In our real-world testing, the Insight Touring recorded a result that is 2 mpg better its EPA rating. Drivers who spend more time in stop-and-go driving can expect even better results; hybrids typically are even more efficient in these situations.
