In its third generation, the 2019 Honda Insight made its debut at the Detroit Auto Show in the electrified car market. Better than ever and with a clear vision to the future, the 2019 Honda Insight is carving its own path and joining an ever-evolving family of Honda hybrids that includes the Honda Accord Hybrid and the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.
The 2019 Honda Insight is powered by a 1.5L Atkinson cycle engine paired with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery. Most of the time, the Insight will run completely on electric power, with the engine serving as a generator that will kick in when needed. And unlike some electric vehicles, the batteries are hidden underneath the rear seats, so they don’t take up valuable cargo space in the trunk.
Though the EPA hasn’t completed its fuel economy estimates on the brand-new Insight, Honda expects that it will achieve extremely competitive numbers compared with other electrified vehicles on the road. Just a few years ago, the combined estimates hovered around 40 mpg for electric vehicles, but with advancements and innovation, electric vehicles are performing better and better.
Features and Technology
Inside, the Insight is comfortable and luxurious with features that range from entertainment and connectivity to convenience and safety. Drivers can expect to find an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, a 7-inch LCD instrument cluster display for the driver, perforated leather seating, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, and much more.
The Insight will also come equipped with Honda Sensing, a suite of driver-assistance technology that helps drivers see more, do more, and drive more safely on the road. The package includes systems such as:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System
- Road Departure Mitigation System
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Lane Keeping Assist System
