Using vehicle speed sensors and seat sensors, smart airbags in the Insight deploy with different levels of force or don’t deploy at all to help better protect passengers of all sizes in different collisions. The Insight’s side airbags will shut off if a child is leaning against the door. The Avalon Hybrid’s side airbags don’t have smart features and will always deploy full force.

The Insight’s driver alert monitor detects an inattentive driver then sounds a warning and suggests a break. According to the NHTSA, drivers who fall asleep cause about 100,000 crashes and 1500 deaths a year. The Avalon Hybrid doesn’t offer a driver alert monitor.

Both the Insight and the Avalon Hybrid have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, front wheel drive, height adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, lane departure warning systems and rearview cameras.

The Insight’s drift compensation steering can automatically compensate for road conditions which would cause the vehicle to drift from side to side, helping the driver to keep the vehicle straight more easily. The Avalon Hybrid doesn’t offer drift compensation steering.

The Honda Insight may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 650 pounds less than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

The Insight is 1 foot shorter than the Avalon Hybrid, making the Insight easier to handle, maneuver and park in tight spaces.

To almost totally eliminate engine vibration in the passenger area, the Insight has a liquid-filled front engine mount. The liquid helps further dampen engine harshness. The Avalon Hybrid uses conventional solid rubber engine mounts.

The Insight uses computer-generated active noise cancellation to help remove annoying noise and vibration from the passenger compartment, especially at low frequencies. The Avalon Hybrid doesn’t offer active noise cancellation.

This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The Avalon Hybrid doesn’t offer a remote starting system.
