Default 2012 Honda Insight: 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show

2012 Honda Insight: 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show

However, a facelifted version is planned and is set to be revealed at the 2011 Frankfurt Auto Show in less than two weeks' time.

So far all we have is this initial image, which confirms the 2012 model year update will see a new grille fitted, plus a redesigned rear spoiler meant to improve visibility through the Insight's two-part rear window in the hatch door.

The hybrid drivetrain has also been tweaked for even better gas mileage, with changes made to the CVT and a more efficient air-conditioning system installed.

On the European combined cycle the 2012 Honda Insight now returns 57 mpg. Expect a slight improvement on the current U.S. models 40/43 mpg city/highway EPA rating.

Some subtle changes to the Insights suspension have also been implemented, possibly improving ride and handling.
