Default Honda Insight Prototype

Well....color me confused. Apparently this previews a new 2019 Insight...but it looks much more like an initial Accord design study or something? They're SUPER similar...but just slightly different.

Confusing indeed. looks like a slightly different take on the Accord, and like a production car. What is this supposed to be?I thought the Clarity will have the whole "alternative fuels" corner covered, this looks to be the same size though...

Right? I don't get where this is supposed to fit.

It's actually a reskinned Civic (and that size).
Looks great to me. Not something weird. Just a normal hybrid. Better looking than the Civic (Civic with Accord detailing?).

It looks like a Civic with a normal butt and a nicer cockpit.

Maybe the Insight is going to wind up being the smaller companion to the Clarity?

Honda really need to ditch this front end design language their inflicting on all their vehicles - it's awful. And the interior touchscreen is too big for the space between the air vents and lower console and appears like an afterthought.

That's intentional and mostly due to the angle of the pic.

The face is horrible and the tail is dull.

Theres a lot to like about this. It's simplicity and useful quirkiness. Closer to the honda we once knew.
