Review: 2019 Honda Insight

The 2019 Honda Insight is the redesign hybrid shoppers have been looking for. When seeing the Insight driving by, you would never guess it was a hybrid vehicle. It is stylish and sleek and changing the game when it comes to environmentally friendly vehicles. Don’t let the good looks fool you; this vehicle will make your wallet happy too.

In our review below, we will get into the special details behind the 2019 Insight.

Performance

There is an extremely efficient engine bundle packed into the 2019 Honda Insight. This bundle is a 1.5 liter inline-4 paired to 129 horsepower electric motor, making a combined output of 151 horsepower and 197 pound-feet of torque.

The two motor hybrid system uses the electric and battery motor for momentum, not the gas engine. The battery electric motor can power the Insight without engaging the gas engine in certain circumstances, but all three engines can clutch together to drive the Insight’s front wheels.

The 2019 Honda Insight is the most fuel-efficient non-electric car, getting and EPA estimated 55/49 mpg city/highway and 52 MPG combined*.

Features and Technology

The 2019 Insight comes with three trim options ranging from a base, mid-level, and high-end trim. The LX is the base trim which gives the Insight 16-inch wheels, LED headlights, 5-inch audio display, Bluetooth, USB port, cloth upholstery, and keyless ignition.

The Touring is the top end trim for the 2019 Insight. This trim package includes navigation, moonroof, 17-inch wheels, premium audio, power adjustable and heated front seats, 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, leather upholstery, and a mirror mounted camera perfect for your blind spot.

The EX trim is the mid-level trim which is anticipated to be the best selling trim for the Insight. This trim package includes active lane control, 8-inch touchscreen with smartphone compatibility, cloth upholstery, 16-inch wheels, and two USB ports. It gives drivers everything they need, plus a little extra.

Safety

Every Insight will be equipped with Honda’s suite of active safety features, HondaSensing. This safety suite crafted by Honda delivers all 2019 Insight drivers with forward-collision warnings with automatic emergency braking, active lane control, traffic sign recognition, and automatic headlights. Going with the EX or Touring trim adds a mirror-mounted camera on the right side of the vehicle, helping you peek into blind spots drivers wouldn’t typically be able to access.
