The 2019 Honda Insight Hybrid Sedan Gears Up to Be a New Bay Area Favorite

A Comfortable and Classic Interior

The 2019 Honda Insight Hybrid doesn't have to yell "HYBRID" to make its presence known--inside or out. There are no kitschy gadgets in the cabin, or excessive badging on the floor mats. That means that when you slide behind the driver's seat, you get to enjoy features like heated leather seats, a power sunroof, premium audio, and rain-sensing wipers without the overbearing hype that other hybrids push. It's likely to become your favorite daily driver.

Modesty is a Virtue

We love the look of the new 2019 Honda Insight. While it was right for Honda to inject models like the new Civic and the new Accord with a big boost of sharper, dynamic styling, the new Honda Insight deserved a bit of subtlety. It actually shares a chassis, wheelbase, and roofline with Civic, but its subdued styling is modest and clean, in a market filled with hybrids that are just plain loud.

Hybrid Powertrain System

What powers the new 2019 Honda Insight? It's a new system geared to be as efficient as possible, pairing a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine to two electric motors and a lithium-ion battery. It's a system that favors electric-only driving whenever it can in order to make a tank of gas go as far as possible. But, it's no slouch--this sporty hybrid sedan has a combined 151 horsepower and 197 pound-feet of torque. The 2019 Honda Insight Hybrid is front-wheel drive only.

Standard and Available Features

On the tech side of things, the 2019 Honda Insight Hybrid Sedan gives you the option of a standard 7.0-inch display screen or an available 8.0-inch touchscreen; Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are readily available, and an optional 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot can help keep you connected anywhere. A standard Honda Sensing suite adds Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow, and Lane Keeping Assist System, and a Multi-Angle Rearview Camera with Guidelines comes standard, as well.

We are ready to take El Cerrito and Berkeley drivers for a test drive today.
