our next car?

It's not the Prius. But it kinda looks like that beloved hybrid. Maybe it's a little cuter (at least my bf thinks so, I happen to like the Prius).

Regardless, it's the new Honda Insight 3 and it's being publicly revealed at the Paris Motor Show next month. The one shown above is a concept, but Honda plans on having it in showrooms on Earth Day next year (that's April 22nd to those who haven't been paying attention for the last 38 years), so it shouldn't change all that much.

If the looks don't get 'em, the price tag should have Prius-lovers changing their minds -- the Insight 3 starts at $19,000 and is said to get 60 mpg.
