Automatic Air Conditioning

The Insight's optional automatic air-conditioning system can maintain the same cabin temperature year-round. A special feature of the system is its large, easy-to-use, electrically operated controls, conveniently located to the right of the IMA display. Three face-level vents are located directly in front of the driver, and a single vent is located in front of the passenger. A micron air-filtration system is standard.


Insight Interior Safety Features

Safety features in the Insight passenger compartment include dual airbags (SRS), 3-point seat belts with pretensioners and load limiters, and fixed head restraints. The interior is also designed to help protect its passengers from side impact and head injury.


Storage and Cargo

Numerous storage areas are conveniently located throughout the Insight's interior, including a driver's storage compartment, a pullout change-storage tray in the instrument panel, two beverage holders in the center console and a 274-cubic-inch glove compartment, located in the instrument panel directly in front of the passenger seat. Additional storage in the passenger compartment includes a passenger seatback pocket and a handy rear-center net pocket.

The 5.0-cubic-foot cargo area is situated directly behind the driver's and passenger's seats, and is easily accessible through the rear hatch. An additional 1.5-cubic-foot, hidden storage compartment is built into the floor of the cargo area. The Insight's space-saver spare tire is located in an easily accessible compartment under the cargo area floor. The IMA Power Control Unit (PCU) and the nickel-metal hydride battery pack are also housed under the cargo compartment floor in an electrically and physically isolated compartment and are protected in rear impacts by the rear suspension.
