    Why Everyone Is Excited About the 2019 Honda Insight

    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.

    Spacious Interior
    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.

    4 Reasons to Watch for the All-New 2019 Honda Insight

    The Honda Insight is a native hybrid design and a compact car that has not been in production since 2014. However, after a thorough redesign, the car is back for the 2019 model year. Due largely to the re-conception of a number of key features, the Insight is definitely a new vehicle to watch this year.

    The Cargo Space
    The 2019 Insight offers a full 15.1 cubic feet of space in the trunk. That’s not just impressive for a hybrid, that’s impressive for a compact car. Furthermore, the trunk opening is nice and wide so you can fit large items inside, and the loading floor is wide and flat so you don’t have the hybrid battery creating a lump in one corner. Like most other cars, you can also fold down the back row and get more space. For being a sedan instead of a hatchback, the Insight is a great vehicle for carrying big loads.

    Honda Sensing
    All three trims of the 2019 Insight come with Honda Sensing, a suite of important driver-assistance features that make it easier and safer to stay on the road. The extensive list of features includes traffic sign recognition, the lane-keep assist system, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, the road departure mitigation system, and the all-important collision mitigation braking system. That last feature can sense when a forward collision is about to happen and can start braking for you the instant you need it to.

    The Engines
    Under the hood of a 2019 Honda Insight you’ll find a 1.5-liter gasoline engine that manages to produce 107 horsepower and 99 pound-feet of torque on its own. However, it also comes with an electric motor, and this power source delivers 129 horsepower and 197 pound-feet of torque to give the Insight a net horsepower of 151. Thanks to the Insight’s native hybrid design, these two engines combine to offer drivers some of the best fuel efficiency numbers in the hybrid class.

    The Connections
    As you’d expect from a modern vehicle, the 2019 Insight comes fully compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so you can run several of your favorite apps directly through the car’s onboard computer. The Insight also works with the HondaLink app, which means you can use your smartphone to check on important details like recall notices, your parking location, and when your next service visit should be. On certain trims, the Insight can also act as a mobile hotspot so you can save money on you data roaming charges.

    Thanks to all these features and the efficiency of a native hybrid design, the Insight is a real contender for one of the best new vehicles of the 2019 model year. With a full set of high-tech features, advanced driver-assistance systems that come standard on every trim, and much more cargo space than you’d expect from a compact sedan, you should check out the Honda Insight at Honda of Roanoke Rapids today.
