    Even just leaving out all the hybrid crap and putting the Fit powertrain in it would make it a contender.

    I know of a pretty sound engineering principle for increasing fuel efficiency.

    Fuel efficiency is secondary to reducing emissions though, that's what's got us in the mess we're in.

    I was going to say that.

    Is it better to burn twice as much gas but be twist as clean, or half as much fuel and be half as clean?

    It just doesn't really add up.

    Yup this car is a failure. Lots of unhappy people where I work... The reason honda hybrids suck is because they went for a low cost direction, instead of a 2 mode, high cost hybrid like Toyota. Just the hybrid system alone in the Prius costs $2k more than what goes into an insight/crz. The honda hybrid system only works at low speeds, whereas the prius can cruise around town on battery power. The crz is rated like 39 highway, and will get real world mileage in the mid to high 40's.

    Honda's hybrid direction is a product planning disaster. The only people that buy hybrids buy them for their status. Budget minded people would rather spend 22k on a fully loaded civic than a basic insight.

    22K on a fully loaded civic? F THAT! I don't think I could pay more then 15K for a civic even if brand new!
