SAN ANTONIO, Dec. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Since its release back in 1997, the Toyota Prius has steadily risen to the top of the hybrid market, and has since refused to step down. Many manufacturers have attempted to replicate the success of the Prius, but only a few have come close. However, the 2014 Honda Insight, one of the newer hybrids on the market, is making a valiant effort to dethrone the popular Prius.
To show consumers exactly how the two hybrids stack up against one another, Benson Honda, a car dealership based in San Antonio, has provided a Web page dedicated to comparing the 2014 Honda Insight vs 2014 Toyota Prius.
The dealership reported that while the fuel economy rating of the Prius is higher than the Insight, the margin isn't significant. Both of the vehicles are capable of delivering more than 40 mpg on the highway, which consumers are sure to appreciate.
Both the Insight and the Prius also have a number of similarities. Both of the vehicles are five-door hatchbacks that utilize a nearly identical aerodynamic design. In addition, both of the hybrids rely on a light-weight nickel-metal hydride battery to provide a significant amount of the power needed to propel the vehicles. The vehicles are also proven to be safe. Both the Insight and the Prius were named as Top Safety Picks by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
The biggest difference between the vehicles is the manufacturer's suggested retail price, as the Insight is a little more than $5,000 cheaper than the Prius. At just under $19,000, the Insight remains the most affordable hybrid vehicle on the market.
Consumers interested in finding out more about the similarities and differences between the Insight and Prius are encouraged to visit the Benson Honda website for the full comparison.
