It’s all-new! It’s bold and brilliant! It’s supremely efficient! That’s right: the 2019 Honda Insight has finally been released, and you can get one right now at your closest Valley Honda Dealers location.
But first, here’s a rundown of what the 2019 Insight delivers.
Key Insights About The New Insight
Welcome the new generation of Honda Insight, with three different trims —LX, EX, and Touring — as well as a singular 107-horsepower 1.5-liter Atkinson 4-cylinder engine and a 129-horsepower electric-motor engine.
Yeah, it’s a bona fide stud in the form of a Honda hybrid. With gasoline in Arizona topping a three-year high at $2.65+/gallon (in Phoenix), having a high-mpg hybrid can be a big cost-saving factor. (Plus, preventing gas emissions keeps the air you breathe fresh and clean.)
“At 52 mpg combined in most versions, the 2019 Honda Insight hybrid is among the most fuel-efficient cars on sale without a plug,” stated reviewers from The Car Connection, which also rewarded the Insight with an 8 out of 10 fuel economy ranking.
Equipped with a four-wheel independent suspension and dual stabilizer bars, this four-door hybrid sedan handles well and offers a pitch-perfect comfortable ride. There is plenty of cushiony seating for five, and the Insight’s batteries do not take up important space in the trunk. Instead, it’s positioned fashionably below the rear seat, out of sight and out of mind, allowing the rear passthrough to shine. You wanted more trunk space, and Honda delivered it in spades with the 2019 Insight.
Standard Features + Honda Sensing
Every Insight, like other Honda models, is equipped with Honda Sensing. Included are:
- Collision Mitigation Braking – helps you stop when the system reads a collision in front of you is inevitable.
- Road Departure Mitigation – helps return you to your lane whether drifting or swerving and brakes when it detects you are leaving the road.
- Adaptive Cruise Control – keeps from tailgating by monitoring the distance of the car in front.
- Lane Keeping Assist – helps keep you centered in your lane.
- Traffic Sign Recognition – provides speed-limit information on your dash, in case you miss a sign.
The Car Connection reviewer further praised the Insight: “Starting from our baseline, the 2019 Insight earns points for good standard features and its standout value.” You’ll find that all Insight models come with a three-mode driving system (ECON, sport, and EV), LED headlights, daytime running lights, Bluetooth hands-free and streaming audio, and push-button start.
The Insight EX upgrades the audio system with Apple CarPlay, offering turn-by-turn directions, as well as Android Auto, featuring Google Now and Google Maps. Eight speakers and SiriusXM, along with Smart Entry and Walk-Away Auto-Lock, are also available.
The 2019 Insight Touring steps up the comfy-game with leather seating (heated in the front) and a one-touch power moonroof. If you’re frequently driving around Phoenix or Tempe, you’ll also appreciate the upgraded 10-speaker sound system and mobile Wi-Fi hotspot. Rain-sensing windshield wipers are included here, as are further options like a stylish grille accent and even a first-aid kit.
Optional features for all models include door-edge guards and body side molding, both of which help you avoid pesky dings in the parking lot. Door visors are available to help prevent glare, and parking sensors keep your Insight out of trouble when parallel parking (or simply squeezing into a tight spot). Interior accessories include all-season floor mats, door panel and sill illumination, armrests, and door protectors.
For 2019, the Honda Insight can be ordered in many new pearls and metallic color options, from White Orchard to Crystal Black and Lunar Silver to Modern Steel. There is also the stylish Crimson, Aegean Blue, and Cosmic Blue available. (Interiors are black or ivory, depending on exterior color.)
