A comparison of the 2020 Toyota Prius vs. 2020 Honda Insight will reveal some very interesting facts to potential owners.

However, this is where the two hybrid vehicles start to diverge. The hatchback nature of the 2020 Prius makes for a more adaptable interior. Owners will be able to carry 27.4 cubic-feet of cargo, which is significantly more than the 15.1 cubic-feet of trunk space offered by the 2020 Honda Insight. All available trim grades of the 2020 Toyota Prius are outfitted with an infotainment system that can use Apple CarPlay® and integrate with the Amazon digital assistant. Honda Insight buyers will need to choose higher trim grades to have a similar capability.
