2019 Honda Insight Delivers Uncompromising Performance

The newest generation of Honda hybrids has it all! At one time, drivers on the hunt for a visually striking and fun-to-drive vehicle might have passed over this segment’s efficient options, but thankfully those days are gone. One of the best examples is the 2019 Honda Insight, a compact hybrid sedan that’s turning convention on its head. The Honda Insight’s fuel economy is nothing short of exceptional, but this car isn’t just a winner by the numbers. The Honda Insight’s range is complemented by its maneuverability and energy. An innovative Two-Motor Hybrid System maximizes the Honda Insight’s horsepower without burning excess fuel, and according to the experts at Consumer Reports, this new hybrid has “the necessary features to challenge the Hyundai, Kia, and (especially) Toyota” competitors.” The Insight is available in the Capital Region today!

Without a doubt, the Insight’s fuel economy is one of its most impressive features. Its small gasoline-burning engine has been paired with a more powerful AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor, and its electronic Continuously Variable Transmission can help you get more miles out of every gallon. On top of all this, the Insight’s efficiency translates easily across environments. It’s just as at home in the city as it is on the highway, and that means you’ll save money no matter where you go.

  • Eco Assist System: Every Honda Insight has been designed with a built-in Eco Assist System, a smart feature that teaches drivers how to use less fuel when they’re behind the wheel. Color-coded portions of your instrumentation will appear green when you’re driving efficiently and blue when you’re burning through more gas than necessary.
  • e-CVT with Deceleration Selectors: The Insight’s Electronic Continuously Variable Transmission works behind the scenes to shift you into the right gear at the right moment, with an eye toward minimizing fuel consumption. This transmission functions alongside the Insight’s deceleration technology, which slows you and charges your battery simultaneously. This technology can be controlled with steering-wheel mounted selectors.
  • Two-Motor Hybrid System: The Insight is powered by an AC Permanent Magnet Electric Motor and a 1.5-Liter In-Line 4-Cylinder Atkinson Cycle engine. The electric motor bears the primary responsibility for moving you forward while the Atkinson-Cycle engine recharges the Insight’s lithium-ion battery. When you’re on the highway or in need of an extra burst of energy, some of the engine’s power can be redirected towards the wheels.
  • 3-Mode Drive System: You’ll be able to switch between three distinct driving modes with the press of a button. In ECON mode, your Eco Assist system will work automatically to minimize fuel consumption. For even greater efficiency, you can enter the all-electric EV mode which brings the activity of your engine to an absolute minimum. When you’re in the mood to pull out all the stops, activate Sport mode and your engine will play a more active role.

Almost every driver considers fuel economy when they’re searching for a new car, but ultimately, most will choose the car that makes them feel comfortable and confident at the wheel. Unlike some hybrids, the Insight’s cleverly designed powertrain and innovative performance-enhancing features offer an unforgettable touring experience. Although some conventional sedans have more horsepower, the Insight’s AC Permanent Magnet Electric Motor allows it to handle particularly well. It can deliver up to 197 lb.-ft. of torque, even at low RPMs, so your Insight will feel responsive, energetic, and eager to accelerate. Moreover, Vehicle Stability Assist (VSA) with Traction Control comes standard on every model. When you’re rounding a curve or moving over rough terrain, this system works to keep you centered and planted on all four wheels.
