There are surely lots of ways to go about comparing the Toyota Prius and the Honda Insight. While both machines come only in a five-door hatchback bodystyle and are available solely with a hybrid powertrain, the two vehicles differ widely when it comes to size, price, available technology and performance – whether that performance is measured as fuel efficiency, handling, top speed or acceleration.
According to a recent report from Nielsen, 61 percent of all online discussions regarding the Honda Insight also include mentions of the Toyota Prius. On the flip side, only about 27 percent of all internet chatter revolving around the Prius mentions the rival Insight. Interesting, eh? The report goes on to suggest "that the Prius is the gold standard to which all other hybrids must aspire."
