Style with Innovative Hybrid Engineering - Meet the 2021 Honda Insight in SoCal

By now, you've most likely seen the headlines and heard the news that California is banning the sale of new, gas-powered vehicles within the next 15 years. Here in the SoCal area, this is expected to make an impact on the way drivers here in San Diego shop for, purchase, and drive their cars in the next few years. With the move towards efficiency greater than ever, the team at Penske Honda Chula Vista would like to take this time to remind you that we're always ready to set you up with a cutting-edge hybrid model, thanks to our collection of outstanding Honda vehicles, including the 2021 Honda Insight. A traditional gas / electric hybrid car, this compact sedan won't qualify as a zero-emissions model under the new rules, but it has the smooth ride and efficient performance our customers are looking for in a new hybrid model right now.

What's New for the 2021 Honda Insight? A Shakeup in Features Availability

A continuation of the third generation of hybrid models with this name, the 2021 Honda Insight introduces National City and Lemon Grove drivers to a handful of small updates this year. These changes mostly take place in the roster of available features, with mid and upper-level models getting new amenities standard starting this year, including:

  • Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are now standard starting at the mid-tier, 2021 Honda Insight EX
  • Top-of-the-line 2021 Honda Insight Touring models now get navigation, leather upholstery, and dual-zone auto climate control standard

2021 Insight Trim Levels

As with previous model years for this Honda, the 2021 model gets three great trim level options for drivers to choose from. Each one has a comprehensive roster of sought-after features, with more available as you move up through the list. Options include:

  • 2021 Honda Insight LX
  • 2021 Honda Insight EX
  • 2021 Honda Insight Touring


As mentioned, the 2021 Honda Insight continues to offer southern California drivers a smooth and easy hybrid performance. This comes from the standard equipment under the hood of every trim, a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine, which works in conjunction with an electric motor. Together, this system produces a combined output of 151 horsepower.

Interior Comfort and Technology

The 2021 Honda Insight is a small sedan that seats five people and has four doors. Within the lineup of outstanding Honda cars, this model fills a nice niche between other popular styles, coming in a little smaller than the 2021 Honda Accord, but a little larger than the 2021 Honda Civic. It has a spacious interior seating arrangement that offers ample headroom and legroom to keep everyone happy, and it comes with a spacious cargo hold for your gear, with a trunk that can accommodate around 15 cubic feet.

In addition to a spacious and accommodating interior, the 2021 Honda Insight also presents a range of great tech and comfort features inside that are sure to satisfy any SoCal driver. Some of our favorite highlights include:
