Back in Feb. '19 when I took a test drive, a first impression was how very quiet this gen 3 Insight is! I also noticed the oddity of when the engine was on/off or low/high rpm. Later after buying it and driving for awhile, that oddity feeling gradually faded away; as I came to think of the gen 3 as an electric car that carries around its own gasoline powered generator! With this new way of thinking, engine noise has gotten lost in the enjoyment of XM music, or calm/peaceful conversation with passengers.
