2019 Honda Insight Performance Specs

As the ever-expanding hybrid segment continues to broaden in appeal, the vehicles in Honda’s hybrid lineup are pushing boundaries left and right, challenging drivers everywhere to increase their expectations. According to the driver-focused experts at Consumer Reports, the new 2019 Honda Insight has “some of the necessary features to challenge the Hyundai, Kia, and (especially) Toyota, at least on the mileage front,” and once you’ve seen how it drives, you’ll surely agree. The Honda Insight’s fuel economy and range make it one of the smartest options for Mid-Michigan’s drivers, and thanks to its cleverlydesigned two-motor powertrain, the Honda Insight’s horsepower and torque will surely satisfy.

Honda Insight Fuel Economy

The best things in life are free—or close to it. If you choose the Insight you’ll save money on fuel no matter where life takes you, and with superior mileage across all settings you’ll be ready for your adventures. Honda’s dependable two-motor hybrid system is the foundation of this sedan’s capabilities, but it’s hardly the only feature that makes the Insight stand out. We’ve highlighted a few of the most exciting components below.

City Highway Combined
Honda Insight LX, EX 55 mpg 49 mpg 52 mpg*
Honda Insight Touring 51 mpg 45 mpg 48 mpg*


1.5-Liter 4-Cylinder Atkinson Cycle Engine: As one half of the Insight’s two-motor hybrid system, this 1.5-Liter In-Line 4-Cylinder engine is responsible for recharging your Lithium-Ion Battery when you’re on the move. Atkinson Cycle design allows this component to consume a smaller amount of fuel than conventional engines.

AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor: In all but the most extreme circumstances, most of the power and energy you’ll feel at the wheel will come from your AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor. As the table above shows, this impressive technology is nearly as efficient on the highway as it is on city streets.

3-Mode Drive System: Every Insight has been designed with a 3-Mode Drive System that lets you switch between ECON, EV, and Sport settings. Each mode interfaces with your shift-by-wire technology to provide a unique touring experience. Sport Mode directs more of your engine power to your front wheels, while ECON mode limits and EV mode eliminates your engine’s contribution.

Eco Assist Technology: Eco Assist technology was designed on the assumption that anyone can learn to drive more efficiently. With this feature, you’ll have color-coded indicators that let you know when you’re driving the Insight in an optimal way.
