Experience the 2019 Honda Insight’s Performance
It’s never been easier for drivers in the Tri-State area to get everything they desire in a hybrid car! The 2019 Honda Insight’s range makes it a strong competitor of popular Toyota and Hyundai hybrid cars, and thanks to its dependable, efficient Two-Motor System—tried and tested throughout Honda’s hybrid lineup—the Honda Insight’s horsepower and mileage leave nothing to be desired. Although this compact sedan is based on the Honda Civic, the editors at Consumer Reports have highlighted impressive “ride quality, cabin quietness, and efficiency improvements” that distinguish it favorably from its roots. Read on to learn more about the Honda Insight’s fuel economy and performance before you take it for a test drive.
Honda Insight Range and Fuel Economy
|Honda Insight LX, EX
|Honda Insight Touring
The 2019 Insight LX E-CVT is priced at $22,830 MSRP** which makes it affordable right from the start, and thanks to its superior fuel economy you’ll continue to save every time you get on the road. The components of the Insight’s powertrain work together to minimize your fuel consumption, and every model comes equipped with smart eco-friendly features to give you a sense of mastery.
- Eco Assist System: Honda’s smartlydesigned Eco Assist System uses color-coded instrumentation to teach you how to drive more efficiently. When your meters are backlit with green light, that means you’re driving the Insight in the way its engineers intended, conserving fuel and extending your vehicle’s lifespan. Blue light indicates that you’re using more fuel than necessary.
- Controlled Deceleration: Every driver has unique preferences, so Honda has built the Insight with steering wheel-mounted deceleration selectors. Using three settings, you’ll be able to control the rate at which your vehicle slows down before you ever engage your brakes. As in most hybrids where it appears, this technology also recharges your battery on the go.
- Two-Motor Efficiency: Honda’s Two-Motor Hybrid System allows the Insight to run almost entirely on electric power. Except where necessary, this car’s gasoline-powered Atkinson Cycle engine will only be responsible for recharging your battery, leaving the real work for your AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor. The specifications made possible by this design are helping the Insight break into an increasingly competitive market.
- 3-Mode Drive System: Shift-by-wire technology allows the Insight to offer three driving modes which you can choose with the press of a button. When you enter Sport mode, your Atkinson cycle engine will increase its contribution to your vehicle’s performance, delivering more power when you need it. ECON mode keeps your Insight’s powertrain components functioning in their optimal range, while EV mode reduces the contribution of your engine to a minimum.

The engineers at Honda have proven their ability to build exciting, high-performance hybrids time and time again, and this year’s Insight goes even further to demonstrate their prowess. Efficiency is a given in this market, but the Insight stands out because it drives like the classic Hondas that our friends and neighbors know and love.
Vehicle Stability Assist:
Vehicle Stability Assist with Traction Control is engaged whenever you’re making a sharp turn, travelling over rough terrain, or making your way around a curve. The system can independently adjust the speed of your wheels to provide more stability or control.
Power at Your Command:
The Insight’s two-motor system is great for more than just fuel economy. Neither of its two semi-independent power sources offer a great deal of horsepower on their own, but with electric power you’ll gain generous amounts of torque, even at low RPMs. Most of the time, this electric motor will also be your primary creator of horsepower, but the Insight’s Atkinson cycle engine can deliver extra power when you need it.
Control and Suspension:
The Insight’s baseline trim comes standard with 16-inch wheels, All-Season tires, power-assisted ventilated front disc brakes, solid rear disc brakes, MacPherson Strut Front Suspension, Multi-Link Rear Suspension, and two stabilizer bars. The Touring models come standard with 17-inch alloy wheels.
