What's New for the 2019 Honda Insight?

This year, the Honda Insight comes out with many changes - some subtle and some overt - that make it more attractive, luxurious, and performance-oriented than in years past. Like other Honda vehicles, the Insight also comes with plenty of safety technology in 2019. There are plenty of amenities inside the cabin on the base model and up, including app connectivity and hands-free Bluetooth.

2019 Insight Trims & Features

There are three trim levels to choose from in the 2019 Insight. The base model, called the LX, has plenty of notable standard features including a 1.5L, four-cylinder engine. The exterior is made visually appealing and safer with LED front and back lights and LED turn signals. The car features daytime running lights, and the lights can be set to automatic or managed manually. The tech-centric cabin features a 160W audio system with six speakers around the cabin and a USB audio interface. Hands-free Bluetooth with Streaming Audio and a panoramic backup camera are also standard. Folding rear seats, a push button start, and a tilt and telescoping steering wheel complete the base model's amenities. More features are available in the mid-level EX model. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard in this trim level. You will also get a 180W sound system with eight speakers throughout the cabin. The touchscreen in this model is an eight-inch display screen with customizable settings. XM radio and HD radio are other notable features in the EX, and it also has two USB charging ports in the front console. Moving up to the top-level touring, you will get LED fog lights, a premier infotainment system with navigation and voice recognition, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a tilting moonroof, and heated leather-trimmed seats. Adding to the interior's luxurious feel is a leather-trimmed steering wheel. This trim level also has an enhanced 450W audio system with 10 speakers throughout the cabin and a subwoofer. This trim level upgrades to 17-inch wheels, and it has rain-sensing windshield wipers. The driver's seat moves in eight ways, and the front passenger's seat moves in four ways.

2019 Honda Insight Horsepower

2019 Honda InsightAll trim levels of the Insight have the same engine, which is a 1.5L, four-cylinder engine that is paired with a two-motor hybrid package. On its own, the engine produces up to 107 HP and 99 LB-FT of torque. When paired with the battery, which is a 1.2 kWh lithium-ion battery, the engine can generate up to 151 HP and 197 LB-FT of torque. The engine features a 16-valve system and a magnetic AC motor. With its hybrid engine design, the Insight is one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in its class. And an added benefit is that it has more of an upscale sedan look rather than the futuristic "hybrid" appearance that doesn't always have crowd appeal.

Honda Insight Safety

This package has a variety of safety features and technologies to keep you safe on the road, including lane keep assistance, which provides steering assistance to keep the car in its lane, traffic sign recognition, road departure warning, which sends an alert if the car changes lanes without signaling and applies the brakes if the car is detected leaving the road, adaptive cruise control, and collision mitigation braking, which brings the car to a full stop if it detects that a forward collision is not avoidable. Along with these amenities, the cabin is equipped with front and side airbags to keep occupants protected in case of a crash.
