Both of these hybrids supply you with ample amounts of power in order to take on any challenge you might encounter out on the road. However, there are some notable differences you’ll come across as we take a peek under their hoods at their respective engines.
For instance, the Honda Insight makes use of a four-cylinder gas engine that is able to provide you with up to 107 horsepower as well as 99 lb-ft of torque. Also, the total system horsepower for the Insight is a robust 151. The Toyota Prius Prime isn’t able to give you as much oomph. Its four-cylinder engine can only produce as much as 95 horsepower and 105 lb-ft of torque. Its hybrid system net power of 121 horsepower significantly falls short as well.
Another important factor to think about when considering the Honda Insight vs. Toyota Prius Prime is the spaciousness you and your passengers are afforded inside the cabin. The 2019 Insight offers a comfortable ride no matter where you’re seated. This is illustrated by the fact that it offers your backseat passengers plenty of legroom that comes to 37.4 inches. The shoulder room measurements for the front and back are just as accommodating at 56.9 and 55 inches, respectively.
The Toyota Prius Prime doesn’t have quite as much comfort to go around as its rear legroom is 33.4 inches, its front shoulder room is 54.2 inches, and its rear shoulder room is 53 inches. On top of all of that, the Honda Insight contains a passenger volume of 97.6 cubic feet, while the Toyota Prius Prime exhibits a far more limited 91.5 cubic feet of passenger volume.
Both of these cars use technology to add to the overall experience. An example of this is that they both have infotainment systems with high-resolution displays. The Insight comes standard with an eight-inch display for optimal access to the controls. The one in the Prius Prime is seven inches.
The 2019 Honda Insight also comes standard with the Traffic Sign Recognition System that projects upcoming road signs on your display so you can have plenty of time to react to the changes ahead. This is not an available feature in the 2019 Toyota Prius Prime.
As this comparison shows, the Insight manages to maintain the upper hand over the Toyota Prius Prime by virtue of its superior performance capabilities, interior comfort, and convenient technology.
