2002 Honda Insight
Still leading the league in EPA mileage estimates, the Insight had no significant change for 2002. Air conditioning remained optional, and antilock braking was standard. In spring 2002, Honda launched a brand-new Civic Hybrid with five-passenger seating, to compete more directly against Toyotas Prius.

Great 21st Century Auto!
Pros: Fuel economy, of course. Very good power for its size. Surprisingly roomy front seats.
Cons: 2 person maximum capacity, limited cargo space. Blind spots make lane changing scary.
High-tech vehicle that's fun and comfortable to drive. Prepare to make a few adjustments, but if you need an economical two-seater, this is the car to have. Read More at Epinions.com
