2019 Honda Insight

Later this year, Honda will be releasing an exciting, newly redesigned hybrid model that’s sure to grab the attention of Mid-Michigan’s drivers. Honda debuted the 2019 Honda Insight at Detroit’s 2018 North American International Auto Show, and according to the writers at Motor Trend, the all-new Insight will offer “a much more premium feel and a more spacious interior.” What’s more, Honda has already declared that the Insight’s owners will benefit from “best-in-class performance.”

The Hybrid You’ve Been Waiting For

The 2019 Honda Insight, an upscale hybrid sedan, will make a splendid addition to Honda’s already-expansive Hybrid lineup. Below, we’ve highlighted some of the features you can look forward to finding in the Insight.

  • 2-Motor Hybrid Drivetrain: The Insight has been designed with a 1.5L Atkinson Cycle engine as well as two electric motors. The latter features allow the Insight to run entirely on electric power in most circumstances, and although the EPA has yet to release its efficiency numbers, Honda expects this model to achieve especially noteworthy fuel economy.
  • Honda Sensing Safety Tech: The Honda Sensing package will come standard even on the Insight’s baseline trim level. This year, the package includes a Collision Mitigation Braking System, a Lane Keeping Assist System, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control, and Traffic Sign Recognition.
  • Redesigned Features: The Insight’s exterior has been completely designed for its 2019 re-release. Instead of a three-door hatchback design, this year’s model features sleek, sedan-inspired exterior features. The Insight’s interior will include perforated leather seating and other high-end materials.
  • Advanced Technology: The Insight will offer a redesigned 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen and standard entertainment features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
