The European Honda Insight is getting a makeover inside and out. Honda has announced that it will update the suspension and the interior trim of the hybrid. These minor changes come after it has been on sale for just 18 months.

Many have complained about the Insight’s poor handling and ride, so Honda will adjust the recoil rate of the springs, as well as the rear camber angles. The Japanese automaker says that these changes will help the ride quality of the hybrid hatchback.

Inside the car, the interior materials and color selections have been updated to give it a better feel and look. Some of the plastics have been changed and the seat trim colors have been updated. Having spent a week driving the Insight, we feel these changes are much needed.

There are new chrome accents around the air vents and the EX model will come with leather and a satnav system.

We hope to see these changes come to North America, but we have no official word yet.

Why Honda’s hybrid car is in a toyota prius’ shape? Lol? Usually in terms of exterior design, Honda is better than Toyota.
