It could be much, much worse. Just next to the Insight, there's no contest about which one my personal asthetic values prefer. I meant no disrespect to the Prius. Honest.b1shmu63 said:Awww, come on guys, it really isn't that bad.
If you mean the Element , my Honda rep doesn't even like it. His comment when I made disparaging remarks about said vehicle was "Honda could slap an H on an outhouse and people would buy it."b1shmu63 said:I'd rather be seen driving it than the new Honda Elephant. That's got to be the only really bad looking Honda in the last 3 decades, but people are buying them, so what do I know?
On an Insight forum what did you expect? In general, we will be biased, whether founded or not, that's just human nature. I didn't get an Insight because I thought the Prius was better. I think it is an excellent vehicle, though.GreenHybrid said:It's interesting to see the bias in hybrid related sites. Where the Prius is popular, it's beautiful. Where the Insight is popular, IT's beautiful.
Then stop with the prodding... :wink:GreenHybrid said:So you know, I'm a Prius guy. The Prius is beautiful. The Insight isn't ...
Can't we all just get along?
Seeing the colour in person you might disagree. It's almost like the colour is "trying". There's no depth.opal said:I agree with you, the Prius is kind of funny looking. Neat colour, though (but I'm glad it's not mine! )
It's irritating the hell out of me. To make matters worse, I have not logged any real highway miles in the past 3 months, and I lost part of the undertray last week due to snow.As an aside, I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who's mileage is taking a beating in this 3 straight weeks of snow nonsense.
I guess not...But my problem is that I am rapidly approaching the patience level of mine...With 3 cars (used to be 4) and a basement full of junk, I'm probably treading on thin ice.So I'm not the only silver Insight driver on the planet who still lives with his parents.
Yeah, and that's truly unfortunate. The shape of the new Prius is like the old Prius; generic. It's like an Aztec and Saab had a lovechild. I personally just don't like the shape...Is it a minivan? Station wagon? Hatchback sedan? It doesn't seem to have any definable quality. And no flow. The Insight flows along it's lines, the Prius seems to have a front that doesn't match the back, and vice versa. It fights with it's hatch...And what's with those taillights?Someday a lot of cars are going to look like that just because of the drag coefficient.
It does not matter at all, by definition.Holicow said:Regarding the Cd, size doesn't really matter.
That's also what I find funny. The Insight design is now 4+ years old, yet is so simple compared to the Prius and still gets more then twice the mileage. Of course, the Prius is a much heavier car...xcel said:The lady in this 04 Prius paced me for ~ 2 miles before turning off … To bad she didn’t know I had a trip average of over 80 mpg at the time
