Nope! It's a giant sedan. Basically a glorified Honda Accord. What a disappointment.

another article confirmed its indeed NOT a hatch ... i dont understand that ... the prius and ioniq are both hatches and the american driving public continue to shift away from sedans and towards hatches, wagons and cuv's/suv's in larger numbers every year ... i was hoping to add a future I3 to my short list of new cars to get one day but it doesnt look like it

Sooo stupid. Very nicely designed 4 door sedan style like that with a hatch kind of like the Audi S7 would have been awesome.

We need to tuck that 3rd gen Insight well away in a separate subforum and give it a not-too-prominent place in the top bar of the site...

I wish it was a wagon, that would get a lot of attention.

About that... The G2 in the top left is actually a prototype. Maybe we should hold off on adding it until they release production model photos?

We can also write them an open letter explaining that they should at the very least make the production model a hatch if they don't want poor sales. I have a friend who could write a Japanese translation of it also.
Will it get anywhere? Probably not, but doesn't hurt to try.



--------

I don't really mind the looks of this new one compared to some other modern Honda models, it's just weird that it's not a hatchback, missed opportunity. I'm not sure why they have this car though, like is it supposed to compete with the Accord? It looks like a slightly nicer Accord.

I'm not sure about the hatch/wagon. Even over here, in 'Hatchland', the Civic hybrid sedan outsold the Insight handsomely. I don't know why but it did.

We are the odd ones that like the 1st and/or 2nd gen styling, that's why we got them. We are not mainstream buyers. (or are we? )
