...The 2011 Honda Insight offers a new affordable approach to the hybrid market with its new Base trim.
Although noise and a cramped rear seat are notable downsides, the Insight's price, handling and build quality counter the criticisms.

The floor isn't totally flat, like the Civic's, but the center floor hump is pretty small. There are three seat belts back there, but it's functionally a two-passenger backseat.
