The two books have always had many loyal fans in the Chinese market. Although the Honda CR-V had oil emulsification problems in the previous two years, the overall product quality of Guangben and Dongben, the vehicle It is still the most reliable of the joint venture brands, and in all the lineups that enter the Chinese market, there are only two models that maintain the English name sales. One is used to replace the Honda Inspire of Spirui, and the other is in the import market. Insight exists.
Although Honda Inspire did not become a hit, it also changed the predicament of Sperui in monthly sales. In contrast, the Insight model is a bit strange to domestic consumers.
Honda Insight only imported into China in 2013 for a short period of time. Although its actual sales volume is not high, and imports are just testing the water, its identity is not an imported subdivision model. Simple. In the current actual sales of hybrid vehicles, Toyota is still the king in this field, and the opposite is Honda's Rui Hybrid, and Insight is the ancestor product of Honda Rui Hybrid. Started production in 2016, this compact car is based on hybrid models, whether it is the original two-door, four-door hatchback, toThe current standard four-door sedan is only available in the Hybrid version, which makes it the basis for Honda's hybrid system development.
Return of the ancestor of hybrids, Insight shows avant-garde Sports
After setting a record for hybrid vehicle sales in the Japanese domestic market, Insight has begun to slowly return to the global market. The annual sales record of 143,000 units has not been broken by other gasoline-electric hybrid vehicles. The Insight in our lens is a new third-generation work, and all its design languages are slowly aligning with Honda Accord, or we can say that it is a version scaled on the basis of Accord.
The top end of the air intake grille of the front of the car is still covered with a thick chrome-plated decorative strip, and its sharp corners are still inserted into the headlights. The dense LED headlights maintain a matrix arrangement and combination, which will make The front of the car immediately showed a sense of luxury.
Its air intake grille area is not as wide as the Accord, it does not fully penetrate into the bumper, but this way of handling does not affect the vehicle's movement expression, because the front bumper is really a bit avant-garde. We seem to see the texture of a BMW sedan on the Honda Insight. A large auxiliary air intake is tightly fitted under the grille, and the independent fog lamp area on both sides provides layered folding like Honda. Diversion, it can simultaneously improve the effect of diversion, and the most decentralized spoiler will also play a very significant optimization of front stability.
The coupe has a better posture, and the cabin pays more attention to the sense of luxury.
Honda is in Insight this time The shape of the side profile of the car is surprising. It looks like a Mazda. Above the front and rear wheel arches of the vehicle, there is a very short arc. Their movement layering will adjust the drag coefficient. effect. However, if you want to really be inserted between the Civic and the Accord, the space of the vehicle requiresSeeking truth is a hard condition. The measurements of 4,663/1,819/1,410mm look good, but consumers who understand the sedan market can easily see that its length has reached the level of the new generation Lavida Plus, but relatively speaking, Its height is very low, approaching the lower limit of 1.4 meters makes it very close to a coupe.
Considering lowThe space of the short body will definitely be questioned, but the width of the body provided by the vehicle is already wider than the largest Sagitar in the compact sedan. At least for the case of double-occupation in the rear, Insight can absolutely guarantee comfort , And its 2,700mm wheelbase has successively surpassed the "large space" Volkswagen such as Bora and Lavida.
andThe front interior design of the vehicle is still online. Its center console is not divided into two like the Accord, but a very unique center control and gearbox fusion structure, which not only looks very recognizable, but also features The compactness between the control areas will also allow the driver to complete a series of convenient operations better and more intensively, and although this touch screen is not as wide as Inspire and Accord, it has a lower layout and smooth actual operation. Degree, will make it more in line with the best operating range of the driver or co-pilot passenger.
The configuration is in line with the Accord, i-MMD pursues practical fuel consumption
In terms of configuration, thanks to the identity of the new energy vehicle, the full LCD instrument panel has entered the Honda Insight as a standard configuration. It can provide more mode displays in addition to driving speed, engine speed, and battery capacity. Look at the intensive operation buttons on the multifunctional steering wheel, you can know how many basic on-board functions of this hybrid car, including blind spot monitoring, lane keeping/warning, fatigue driving monitoring, etc., have become standard, which is also in line with Honda Accord Hybrid models,
However, gasoline-electric hybrid vehicles have to be sold, but they depend on the performance of the vehicle’s powertrain. Insight is equipped with Honda’s third-generation i-MMD multi-mode hybrid system. , It is currently the world’s closest system in terms of thermal efficiency and overall operating efficiency to Toyota THS-III. Unlike CR-V and other Japanese hybrids, its Atkinson naturally aspirated engine is not 2.0L, but a 1.5L four-cylinder engine, but the maximum power of 153Ps, on an A+ class compact carIt is already quite practical, and in the one-week driving process of overseas media, its comprehensive fuel consumption is 5.54L/100km, which is even 0.74L/100km lower than the official data of 6.28L/100km, and this level of fuel consumption Already similar to the 1.2T on the Sagitar.
Small application comment:
Honda defines it as a "premium compact car". It is more inclined to A+ products such as Sagitar and Weilang on the domestic market. In Honda’s own domestic lineup, its size positioning It will be between the Honda Civic, Honda Accord, and Inspire. Thanks to its status as a new energy vehicle, it will have the same level of configuration as the Accord on some basic models, and it will be able to make a breakthrough in the gasoline-electric hybrid market. And surpassing the global sales of Toyota Camry hybrids and other products, can the Honda Insight enter the market with a rare standalone hybrid car in the future?
