An Insight on the Forgotten Honda Insight

There are plenty of cars to go through in this week's episode, as we discuss the hot and new Audi RS3, the refreshed Toyota Aqua (Prius C), and the 1280hp, gasoline-powered Koenigsegg Jesko hypercar.

 

In Part 2, we go through the local car launches, starting with the luxurious BMW 330Li, the facelifted flagship Volkswagen Arteon R-Line, rumours of a small Volkswagen Taigun, and the arrival of a turbocharged Hyundai Kona 1.6.

 

In Part 3, we discuss a mild hybrid car that's been largely forgotten in recent years: the second-generation Honda Insight. Valued between RM20k-30k these days, this hybrid family car is like most Hondas; reliable, functional, cheap to run and to mend - mild-hybrid battery included.
