2019 Honda Insight Review
The market for hybrids has always been extremely competitive, and it’s becoming even more so as many drivers become aware of the great comforts and fuel economies that these vehicles can provide them.
That’s why the 2019 Honda Insight is such a welcome addition to the pack. Anyone can buy a hybrid vehicle, but this car has excellent performance specs, a smooth ride, and a very comfortable interior that all make it a go-to sedan. If you’re a driver in the Wellington, Lake Worth, Boynton Beach, and Palm Beach areas, you owe it to yourself to look at the stylish lines and impressive specs of this hybrid in our 2019 Honda Insight review!
Performance and Capacity
The 2019 Honda Insight is garnering rave reviews for its EPA-estimated 49 highway and 52 combined MPG1, not to mention the fact that it can accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in 8.8 seconds; rest assured, this little vehicle has plenty of pep.
What makes that all possible is the 1.5L inline 4-cylinder engine that can provide 107 horsepower and 99 lb-ft of torque. Honda is proud of its two-motor hybrid, and with this strong engine performance and gas mileage, the performance is outstanding on this 2019 revamp.
The Insight also has quite a bit of room for a four-door sedan. A 60/40 split-folding rear seat adds to the 15 cubic feet of trunk space for some very nice cargo capacity. Headroom and legroom are no problem either—the Insight seats five adults comfortably, offering 39.3 inches of headroom and 42.3 inches of legroom in the front. Back-seat passengers will find 36.9 inches of headroom and 37.4 inches of legroom.
Infotainment and Safety Features
Of course, many drivers want to know about infotainment features. After all, who doesn’t want the latest technology available at the touch of a button, especially on the road? Thankfully, the 2019 Insight lives up to this challenge.
The 2019 model comes with a 5-inch touchscreen; however, an 8-inch touchscreen is also available, along with smart device integration through Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. The Insight also has SiriusXM® Satellite Radio and HD Radio™ available. You’ll find two USB ports and an 6-speaker audio system as well, giving your family tons of entertainment and connectivity options.
Honda is well known for its safety packages. In the Insight, there are many features that come standard, such as:
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Forward Collision Warning with Brake Assist
- Road Departure Mitigation System
- Lane Departure Warning
- Comprehensive airbag system
- Multi-Angle Rearview Camera
