Default Possible Insight replacement due in 2009!

Fantastic! It appears that Honda are introducing the IMAS / Insight 2 according to the TopGear website. Can't wait!

Maybe I should stop looking for a 5 speed and just keep my cvt for another few years. With all this talk about accords getting 80+ mpg in europe and now a new Insight model, seems like it would be a waste to get one now when I don't especially need it.

Am I missing it or did they change the site already? All I see for Honda are the following:

Honda mini-MPV - Spring 2005
Honda Legend - Autumn 2005
Honda CR-V diesel - Mid-?05
Honda mini-MPV - Spring 2005
Honda Insight - Late 2005

I think that the suspicion was that since the Insight was being listed as a "new model" it was going to be a different one. However, I don't know if that's the case or not.

Email the site to find out what they mean by new model!

Default Replacement

Ever since the Insight I've always thought the only thing that could replace it is another color Insight, but with the prospect of a Honda Insight II, maybe there will be another option!

Let's hope it gets 30 mpg more and is 2x faster, 2x safer, and 2x lighter.

I've always wanted a car that I could carry into a shop with me. Soon it won't be an FJM just a JM.

Guys, when they say new model they mean new model. The TopGear website is quasi-BBC and their information should be accurate. However there are a couple of typos (they have put mini-MPV twice and missed the new NSX, which they had on the list previously). I cannot find anything else on the Web, so I think it would be good idea to e-mail and doublecheck with the website.

I want to be the first person in Britain to get the Insight 2!

Perhaps we should send a letter to Honda asking them to use the same procedure that Toyota did. (Toyota offered the new Prius to existing Prius customers before anyone else). Have fun, RIck
