The 2019 Honda Insight is getting some great reviews, so you’ll want to know what the buzz is all about. This hybrid vehicle is not only quick but spacious, and it has many enticing technological features to enjoy. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider this for your next vehicle.
Quicker Than Other Hybrids
The Insight balances acceleration with fuel economy better than the majority of other hybrids do. It has similar speed to regular compact cars and is quicker than other hybrid vehicles. It has a 1.5-liter gas engine with four cylinders that works together with two electric motors. This provides a total of 151 horsepower, and the car can go from zero to 60 miles per hour in under eight seconds. The car can run on the electric propulsion motor by itself for a mile when traveling at lower speeds. The powertrain is generally refined and quiet.
There is plenty of room inside the Insight, ensuring both driver and passengers are comfortable for the ride. While the front seats are low, there’s enough room to stretch out no matter what size you are. There is enough room in the back for two adult passengers. Stitching is incorporated in the dashboard to give it a refined look. The instrument panel has a digital gauge that is customizable and displays various information, such as how fast you’re going and fuel economy data.
There is also an electronic shifter compared to a regular gear stalk. The seats are made of perforated leather, and circular air vents on the dashboard make it easy for the driver and front passenger to get comfortable.
Advanced Entertainment System
The Infotainment system in the vehicle has a usable and modern interface. Base models have a five-inch touch screen that is easy to use. The Touring and EX models have a bigger eight-inch touch screen that has more features, including built-in navigation, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone integration. Every USB port found throughout the car has five volts. The LX trim level has a basic set of speakers, while the EX and Touring trim levels have more power and speakers.
4G LTE Wi-Fi hot spot makes it easy to connect your phone and car when you need service. This means you’ll be able to get the latest traffic reports so you know the best route to take.
Sleek Exterior Look
All trim levels of the Insight have LED taillights and headlights. The Touring has an additional sunroof, chrome trim, and bigger wheels. All models have a more rounded front end than previous years and a blue accent bar that shows the hybrid technology of the vehicle. There’s a small lip on the trunk, which makes it stand out from other Honda vehicles.
