2017 Honda Insight

Although new 2016 year model has not been released yet, Honda is preparing model after that for Insight. The greatest change should be – only hybrid vehicle will be offered, without model powered just from petrol engine. As it is about design, there are some likely changes, but designers have plenty of time to make it look great, since release of next model is scheduled for 2016. Next vehicle will come probably few months later as 2017 Insight, but all drivers of hybrid cars will be waiting for it eagerly.
