new-insightHonda has finally buckled down and set an MSRP and a release date for it’s new Insight Hybrid. Since its unveiling and during our testing, we’ve been merely speculating on the MSRP of Honda’s dedicated hybrid model, but on March 24th buyers will be able to purchase an Insight LX Hybrid starting at $19,800.

At that price the Insight undercuts the current Prius’ base price by $2,200, but that gap could grow or shrink with the release of the 2010 model.

Those with a bit more change in their purses can step up to the Insight EX for $21,300. This trim level bump adds adds, most notably, Vehicle Stability Assist, alloy wheels, cruise control, paddle shifters, a six speakers audio system with USB interface, and heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals.

All three Insight models are EPA rated at 40 mpg city and 43 mpg highway (41 mpg combined).
