So I guess the only differences between the Insight Concept and the full production model will be the wheels and maybe front/rear lighting? I like the concepts interior. Will the production model look pretty much identical?

Can't wait to see the production CR-Z sports car hybrid. If it looks good and priced decent, could be my next car.

I'm guessing the rear view mirrors will change, the door handles and a few other touches.

I don't think the hatch would be flush with the bumper but slightly sunk in (slight rear-ends would be costly).

I hate how Honda shows the car you really want, months before they release the conservative, watered-down, small wheeled, no accent lights, less smooth, real-life car. I know thats the point of a concept, but shouldn't the final product some how be better??

Agree with you. It is one of the most frustrating things about Honda. They like to doll up the concepts and then the American Honda accountants and lawyers come into play and ruin what looked to be a promising vehicle.
