The All-New 2019 Honda Insight Revealed

All-New 2019 Honda Insight Interior

By any measure, the Honda Insight has been very successful. Since its introduction in 1999, it has been one of the better-selling hybrids in the market. However, declining sales put an end to production after the 2014 model year. Being that this was the second discontinuation of the vehicle in a decade, the future of the Insight looked bleak—until now. The Insight hybrid is making a comeback with its 2019 edition: renewed, revived, and rejuvenated.

What Kind of Performance Does It Get?

With a powertrain that combines a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder gasoline engine, an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack, multimode automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive, the 2019 Honda Insight has a city fuel economy rating of 55 mpg, as well as 151 total horsepower. Worthy of note is the transmission, which combines three selectable driving modes—ECON, Sport, and EV—to allow you to customize your driving experience: whether you want a more exciting ride or maximize energy consumption. The new powertrain is capped by a sleek four-door sedan design that uses sharp and dynamic lines and a sweeping coupe-like roofline. As a result, the 2019 Insight has a low and wide stance that gives it a sporty appearance, which is further enhanced by 16-inch alloy wheels, a wing-style grille, and LED headlights.

What Is on the Interior?

Inside the vehicle is a cabin that gives off a sporty yet elegant aura. Two rows provide seating for up to five people, with the trunk offering 15 cubic feet of cargo volume. The 60/40 split-folding design of the rear seats enable you to expand the cargo volume into the cabin. For comfort and convenience, the Insight starts off with features such as push-button start, heated mirrors, wireless technology for hands-free phone calling and audio streaming, and a six-speaker audio system. Upgrading to the EX introduces features such as an 8-inch touchscreen, a complimentary SiriusXM® satellite radio subscription, and a smart key entry system. And exclusive to the top-level Touring are leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats, a power moonroof, rain-sensing wipers, and dual-zone climate control. Other features—such as Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for smartphone-based control, mobile hotspot capability, and HondaLink® for convenient vehicle connectivity—are also available.

How Does The 2019 Insight Keep Me Safe?

Regardless of what trim of the 2019 Honda Insight you go with, though, you are automatically guaranteed the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety features. Honda Sensing bundles together collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow lane-keep assist, and traffic sign recognition. Honda LaneWatch™ technology is added to the upper-level EX and Touring trims. And the usual equipment—electronic vehicle stability control, brake assist, all-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, and multiple airbags, among others—are still on board.

With the 2019 Insight, no one will have to sacrifice style and refinement for efficiency and versatility. Thanks to an unconventional four-door sedan body style instead of the standard hatchback layout usually adopted by its rivals—not to mention considerable improvements in engineering and generosity of in-car technologies—this model just might become the ultimate hybrid car to get.
