Default why does the crz get less mpg the insight (the 2010 model)?

The original Insight was not practical. That's why the Prius destroyed it in the marketplace, and why the new Insight looks just like a Prius.

The CRZ is more sporty than the Insight, with more horsepower, a 6-speed manual transmission, and larger wheels. It is marketed as a sporty hybrid, where the Insight is direct competition with the Prius and is marketed as a practical, efficient, small family car.

sporty & more powerful.

The front looks good. but the rear of the the new crz looks ugly. The old 88-91 crx looks way better still.

The crz has low mpg because the engine is from a Honda fit attach with electric motor the mpg is reduced with the manual transmission the cvt improves mpg but its not so greatly, secondly honda's IMA system is less efficient than toyota's HSD therefore less mpg and more affordable than other hybrid cars. the crz weights at 2800lbs and the crx hf at 1900 lbs at low rpms to get high mpg also th crx hf if produced today would not be safe by us standards today
