The Insight comes standard with lots of active-safety gear and performs well in crash tests. Because it hasn't been fully tested by all safety agencies, we can only give it a rating of four stars for now.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the nonprofit, independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) evaluate vehicles for crashworthiness in the United States. NHTSA assigns cars an overall rating out of five stars. IIHS uses a different set of tests, grades cars on a scale of Good to Poor, and awards the vehicles that perform best across its tests with Top Safety Pick or Top Safety Pick+ honors, the latter of which requires that the subject's automated forward-collision-braking system performs well.

Although it hasn't been tested by NHTSA yet, the Insight aced the IIHS's tests across the board.

Active-Safety Features

All Insights come with a comprehensive package of active-safety features called Honda Sensing. It includes most of the key systems available today other than blind-spot monitoring. Instead of a blind-spot monitor, Honda's LaneWatch uses a video camera to display the image of what is in the Insight's passenger-side blind spot when the right turn signal is activated. The image is displayed on a screen in the center of the dash.
