The first Honda Insight came out in 1999, the second came in 2009 and the brand is once again going to offer the hybrid in the marketplace. This time around it has much more mainstream styling and seating for up to 5 people. Honda calls it a no compromises hybrid. The new Insight will be build alongside the Civic and as Henio Arcangeli Jr., Senior VP of the Auto Division at American Honda tells Autoline, it will slot just above the Civic in its lineup.
