I remember seeing "computer-stylized graphics" like below in the 2019 Insight Press Kit,

but I think the following renderings posted on the model year 2021 Insight page are new (or at least new-to-me?) to complement the text-only descriptions in the Press Kit.

STREAMLINED AERODYNAMICS: grille and engine designs reduce wind loss, and the front bumper limits wake

UNDERSIDE EFFICIENCY: flat underfloor and strakes to reduce wake and streamline airflow beneath the car

OPTIMIZED AIRFLOW: the trunk's surface optimizes aerodynamic performance and prevents airflow from entering the rear of the vehicle
