2019 Honda Insight
The last time we saw the Honda Insight was in 2014 as a hatch-styled vehicle. In 2014 the Honda Insight was discontinued until this year. This year the Honda Insight will be completely new from the ground up. It is completely re-designed as a sedan and will be placed above the Civic in the Honda lineup. The Insight will be powered by a 1.5 liter atkinson cycle engine and a two-motor hybrid powertrain. The battery pack will be placed underneath the rear seat to provide more passenger volume and cargo space! The rear seats will be split 60/40 and will be able to be folded downward. The 2019 Honda Insight will operate solely off of the electric power which is provided by its energy dense lithium battery with the engine functioning as a generator, this will give you a expected rated fuel economy of 50 MPG. Moving onto the interior when you first sit down you will see a 8 inch touchscreen infotainment system that will be stacked on the dash. Behind the steering wheel you will see a 7 inch display cluster. Honda Sensing comes standard on every Insight and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be available on certain trims.
