2019 Honda Insight Review

Posted on
Honda watched the Insight hybrid on a different path than many other companies watched by triggering gasoline-electric fuel. Instead of highlighting green reliability, Honda designed Insight to be a traditional sedan similar to the Honda Civic – only Insight began to achieve fantastic mpg. This is a good thing considering the Civic is one of our favorite compact cars, and Insight takes advantage of robust handling and comfortable driving. The hybrid drivetrain complex is mostly silent and not flamboyant. A cherry in a complete and preferred package, so we look more mature and luxurious than Civic, so we’ve given it to the Editor’s Picks list.
Insight is completely new to 2019. It runs on the same wheelbase as the Civic sedan, but has a unique style, a revised interior design and a completely different arrangement under the hood, which combines a gasoline engine with a pair of electric motors.
We think the mid-level Insight EX is the best game. Insight adds many features in EX for more than $ 1,230 from the LX base. This is not fully paired as the Insight Touring with the best features, but is equipped with hardware such as the 8.0 inch touch screen, keyless entry and start button and LaneWatch Honda blind spot system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Insight EX is priced at $ 25,080 and does not offer any factory options.

Insight’s interior features and finishes occupy a central path that gets a good score between bargains and first-class dungeons. It feels a bit more luxurious than the nearby Civic, and this is also suitable for other hybrid competitors. Adjustable digital displays on the instrument panel can display various information, from fuel saving data to speed limit information. You’re sitting in the front seat of Insight, but there’s plenty of room to sleep. However, the adjustable lumbar support falls from the driver’s seat, which is disappointing. There’s plenty of room for two adults in the back seat.

The Honda Infotainment system has mostly modern and convenient interface – and we’re glad to have a real volume button now – but some menus can be very complex and the setting button is still missing. The 5.0-inch home screen on the Insight LX abbreviation is a fairly simple matter, not even the SiriusXM satellite radio, but at least it’s easy to use. The EX and Touring models have a larger 8.0-inch touchscreen with more features, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration and default navigation.

The Insight battery pack is located under the rear seat, so it does not in any way violate the cargo capacity; The rear seats are still flat, mostly flat to accommodate larger items. However, some of Honda’s competitors are hatchbacks, which means they can store more goods and larger cargo areas are easier to load. Insight has a very handy and configurable center console that can accommodate many things. There are also a few trash cans in the cargo area.

Insight accelerates better work quickly with stingy fuel savings compared to most hybrids. This is as fast as conventional motorized compact cars (and much faster than other hybrid competitors we tested). The combination of a gas engine and an electric motor is rarely seen as an unusual situation. The setup provides 151 horsepower, which boosts Insight from zero to 60 mph in 7 seconds. With its own electric drive motor it can run for about a mile at lower speeds, but it requires more power and the petrol engine rolls smoothly. You can see the engine rising even further under hard acceleration, but the power train is Insight, otherwise silent and smooth.

Insight is a very fun vehicle to drive. It is calm, comfortable and smooth and safe. This is not surprising given that it is mechanically similar to the Civic sedan that shares this positive trait. Though not very sporty, Insight has good driving and robust control. The flexible suspension absorbs pulses well and helps to change direction in a fast-forward, responsive way. The predictable and gradual brake pedals in Insight have only a few irregularities that break the brakes of many other hybrids. The Insight brake feels as good as a conventional gas-powered car.
