Along with advanced engine technology, Honda is dedicated to designing advanced
safety technology. This includes active front head restraints, which move forward and
up in a moderate-to-severe rear-end impact, reducing the likelihood of neck injury.
Also on the standard safety list: six airbags,* a Tire Pressure Monitoring System
(TPMS)5 and Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA®) with traction control. And those are just
a few of the standard safety features found on the 2013 Insight.
*Honda reminds you and your passengers to always buckle up. Children 12 and under are safest when properly restrained in the rear seat.
VSA is not a substitute for safe driving. It cannot correct the vehicle’s course in every situation or compensate for reckless driving.
Control of the vehicle always remains with the driver.
