Well I missed the 92-95 Civic model. Owned an 89. But I do have quite a bit of time behind the wheel in 95 models too. ;)

Seems like you answered your own question since you've driven both. However, your assesment that the Insight wasn't "harsher" isn't the norm. Its lighter and the LRR tires make all the little bumps more apparent. Remedied by non OEM tires with a 10%+ MPG reduction.

Heavier almost always = better traction (snow) performance. Many Insighters in high snow areas opt to use snow tires. Some used Honda 14" rims are readily available making the swap a 20 min job in your driveway.

HTH! :)
