Honda Insight


17 January 2012

Being friendly has been strongly these days.

From plastic bags to polystyrene recycling to reusing #8211; parties have jumped on the bandwagon.

That includes car too, such as Honda.

recently, I had an opportunity to drive a car for the first time ever it#8217;s the Honda Insight.

I don#8217;t know much a hybrid car initially, but boy #8211; it was a fun and insightful experience!

These besides the conventional cars of us own, the hybrid cars received quite a number of from numerous people.

At the only thing I knew a hybrid car is that it#8217;s and eventually saves money purchasing costly petrol. But going through this by Honda, there are more that!

Well, allow me to you about my personal experience the Honda Insight.

When I first lay my eyes so on the Honda Insight, I went Woahhh, so this is a Hybrid *jakun* It may not be a classy nor sophisticated but I really like the exterior of the Insight.

This machine is a beauty.

This is me #8211; look that *jakun* all. But deep inside, I was pumped up and excited to hit the road the Insight. Vroommm!

Honda is the in introducing hybrid technology in It#8217;s interesting to read the of what they have since the initial hybrid Click for larger image .

the interior design of the Insight is simple #8211; resembles a car. Nevertheless, it#8217;s and comfortable throughout the whole #8211; be it for the driver or the passengers.

But till you see the dashboard, you#8217;ll be with how it can help drivers the potential of the hybrid technology.

So after the briefing, we started our journey to Malacca #8211; allowing us to test-drive the Insight.

As as we like to drive on the highway, and push the Insight to the limit, it was a idea by Honda to take us to roads where we could on a day-to-day driving experience.

in a team of 3 (I was with Mike Yip and Tan ), I had my fair share of driving There are pit stops along the way for of drivers.

Despite having to on windy and narrow roads of the time, there are certain where we entered the highway. Oh that#8217;s where the real fun #8211; pushing it to the speed

This was how fast I went the Insight on the highway. Yes, not that fast but 120km/hour has exceeded the highway speed in Malaysia, y#8217;know? 😉

Oh yeah, were mini contests the journey, but unfortunately my team get to win any prizes. Heh.

Anyway, some of you might #8211; what exactly is a car, and how it works #8211; the Honda Insight.

Well, the two components are an engine and an electronic When these 2 power come together in a single that#8217;s what make a car.

The engine is like the engine we have, and the electronic provides additional power as and it is needed.

With the assistance of the Motor Assists (IMA) it#8217;s sort of like a for the car. Also, the IMA battery has a warranty #8211; really warranty period for the Honda .

The good thing about it is it results in low emission and promotes efficiency. That would play a big role in promoting a environment.

Besides that, the of the Insight is just beautiful. I I#8217;ve said this twice already!

It#8217;s and curvy.

Know what, it really sporty as well.

It#8217;s like a hot sporty with a … curvy right. P

So anyway, after the Insight for almost 2 days, how the hybrid system works is interesting.

On the dashboard, there are a meter and multi-info screen to the driver to drive better.

At stages of driving, here are how the engine and electronic motor to provide the power when and when the electronic motor#8217;s is re-charged.

When combined, the engine of the Honda Insight gives acceleration performance to a 1.6L engine. Nice!

No it felt almost as good as my conventional car.

While the Insight, it has a feature called the Assist#8221; that helps to achieve fuel-efficient driving.

The Eco Assist is called the #8220;Econ When activated, the car is automatically to maximize fuel efficiency.

function is the #8220;Guidance Function#8221;. are colors on the speedometer that from blue to green on the driver#8217;s driving style.

If it#8217;s green, you know doing it right. Go green! 😉

The one is the #8220;Scoring Function#8221; where rated based on the overall level, cumulatively or long

Now this is cool. Besides driving from destination A to B, you get to your driving score determines the style of driving. a #8220;Congratulations#8221; trophy would be an honor right. P

As fun as this feature could be, it ultimately the driver to drive better. press the accelerator unnecessarily and break abruptly #8211; to name some tips. )

One of the we always monitor while was the mileage efficiency. Throughout the we were asked to check

When this photo was it was 16.1km/l #8211; which is not (coz speeding decreased it However, under a controlled environment, one could get as much as #8211; which is way better a normal car.

Besides that, the Insight is with various safety

Here are the 9 main safety of the Insight#8230;

It definitely comes features that take of you, while you take of the environment. Win-win FTW!

than that, one exterior that attracts me is the blue-ish lights.

So … right?

the cargo area is really and it#8217;s reachable from the seats.

The good thing it is that you can grab things the back seats without the car at all #8211; that#8217;s if you have behind lah.

Even the Insight is a typical 5-seater and it#8217;s obviously just for 5 #8211; but what if you have an person who wants to follow?

not, because with the spacious cargo area the 6th passenger can surely have a too!

I have an Insight!

Can fit #8211; with a #8216;…#8217; some more. D
