Interior Layout and Design

The seating and control layout in the Insight reflects its sporty nature. Outward visibility, sightlines and control placement are designed to enhance driver concentration and ease of movement. Honda designers have also designed the Insight's interior to be comfortable and relaxing. The high-backed bucket seats are highly supportive to help minimize fatigue during long periods of driving.

The interior is fully carpeted and upholstered, and a variety of patterns and textures are used to create a high-tech but comfortable look. The instrument panel has a two-tone, black-and-gray finish.

Controls for the power windows and mirrors and the heating, ventilation and available automatic air conditioning system (HVAC) are all within easy reach. The controls for the AM/FM stereo cassette are set just below the driver's panel for easy access, and individual driver's and passenger's map lights and the interior light are conveniently located overhead. The driver's sun visor also features a vanity mirror. The door inserts are fabric-upholstered and incorporate armrests, passenger-assist grips, speakers and power door-lock controls. The padded, three-spoke steering wheel is the same design used on the Honda S2000 sports car.
