Default Honda Insight Gets Suspension Updates in the UK to Curb Criticism


Along with building high revving engines, Honda is also well known for building cars that are fun to drive, which is part of the reason why journalists universally panned the Insight hybrid. The suspension on the Insight was more up to Toyota standards than Honda ones and so Honda has decided to rectify the situation in the UK at least.

Recently announced updates for the 2011 Insight in England include changes to the recoil rate of the springs, new rear camber angles and modifications to the rear suspension brace. Honda claims the changes will, "deliver improved ride, handling and stability".

Inside upgrades include higher quality trim and new chrome and silver surrounds.

It's not yet clear if Honda plans to announce these same changes for 2011 Insights in the U.S.

Interestingly, no fuel economy improvements have been made to help the Insight edge closer to Toyota's Prius.
