Prices of Used Honda Insight in Kenya
It is no news that used vehicles have the market in Kenya now. The great news is, irrespective of the brand and car, you can be guaranteed to find a used version. The only issue is, most vehicles vary in durability and ruggedness, which means there is a strong tendency they’d vary in second-hand value. Honda, for instance, is not the most rugged auto brand but one can still get a neatly used version that still maintains great efficiency and expected features.

Honda Insight: Things You Should Know About the Vehicle
The Honda Insight is classified among the most successful Honda mid-range sedans of all time. It has enough power and acceleration for most driving conditions and lovely handling, though you won’t confuse it for a sports car. The Insight delivers some of the best fuel mileage ratings of any car on the road in recent times. The Insight feels nice from the interior, and there are plenty of tech features and easy to use gadgets.
The Honda Insight is available in three major trims: LX, EX, and Touring. All models feature a four-cylinder engine, an electric motor, a continuously variable automatic transmission, and a front-wheel drive. Various trims boast various features. If you want a more tech-inclined Insight, you should consider the trim that offers more gadgets and boast lovelier features.
The EX makes a good choice for many buyers because, in addition to the LX’s ample features list, the EX adds some extra infotainment and connectivity features. The Touring will also appeal to some customers because it adds many luxury features not available in lower trims, such as leather fabric and heated front seats.
This Honda Insight sedan seats five people. Both rows provide a decent volume of space by compact car criteria, though the existing moonroof cuts into headroom. The seats are affably comfortable and have an acceptable amount of support for most people, though taller passengers in the back may not find it particularly welcoming during longer trips.
The Insight comes normal with driver drowsiness monitoring, traffic sign recognition, a rearview camera, and the HondaSensing suite of active safety features, which includes adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, collision mitigation braking, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and road departure mitigation. Honda’s LaneWatch and front and rear parking sensors are also available.
