Honda has wheeled out an update to its Prius-fighting Insight hybrid, bringing a number of subtle cosmetic tweaks and improved fuel consumption.

On the styling front, the 2012 Insight gets a new grille and revised headlights, along with new front and rear bumper designs.

Inside, there's a new rear seat-bench designed to offer better head and leg-room, and the dash has been tweaked with new cup holders in the centre console.

Rear visibility is also improved, thanks to a smaller rear-wiper housing and a slimmer rear spoiler.

Honda says it has also reshaped the underbody to achieve a two percent aerodynamics improvement.

Combined with reduced friction in the 1.3 litre i-VTEC petrol engine and CVT transmission, Honda says it has achieved a drop in fuel consumption from 5.7 to 5.6 l/100km.



Speaking with TMR this week, Honda Australia's Melissa Cross confirmed that the updated Insight will arrive in local showrooms next year, although exact timing is still to be confirmed.
