The Honda Accord Hybrid requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Honda Insight, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP).

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Insight and the Honda Accord Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.
