    Honda Insight is back

    Yes, it looks like a Prius, but instead of the lightweight sportish vehicle the first rev of the Insight was, this is more of a mainstream car.

    Can't hurt. I didn't see the MPG, but I'm pretty sure Honda will have something that will rival the CRX Si in MPG, that isn't a motorcycle.

    Now, if Honda can do a hybrid pickup truck, I'd be happy.

    CR-X is reincarnated as the CR-Z?

    Well the thing that the original insight lacked was everything from rear passenger seats to trunk space. I'm glad they're making something to compete with it's own civic hybrid.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    I think its mainly marketing. The Civic hybrid name doesn't go as well among people who want to be eco-cool as a model that has always been a hybrid, such as the Prius. Even though both cars get an impressive MPG number.
