The 2019 Honda Insight is a hybrid sedan that’s dynamic and efficient on the road and supremely comfortable inside the cabin. Car and Driver calls the Insight “a joy to drive around town,” thanks in part to its smooth driving characteristics and well-equipped models. But as a five-passenger sedan, the Insight also keeps safety as a top priority with passive and active safety features and driver-assistive technology.
Safety in the Insight begins with Honda’s innovative Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure. The design utilizes a complex network of frame structures that absorb crash energy and distribute it away from the occupants. The structure also minimizes the amount of force that is transferred to the other vehicle involved, keeping everyone on the road safer.
The Insight’s passive safety features includeseat belts, airbags, and locks. These features might not be apparent, but they’re there for you when you need them most.
With an extensive list of active safety features the Insight performs at its best, even in inclement weather or less-than-ideal road conditions. These features help the Insight maintain good tractive control with the road, come to a complete stop more quickly and safely in an emergency braking situation, and stay clearly visible to other drivers while also illuminating the road ahead.
Every model of the Insight comes equipped with a multi-angle rearview camera that allows drivers to check their surroundings before reversing. And with guidelines as an accompanying feature, and dynamic guidelines as an upgrade on the EX and Touring models, drivers can maneuver in and out of tight spaces with ease.
The Honda Sensing suite of driver-assistive technology features comes standard on every model of the Insight. It helps drivers stay safe with systems that warn, prevent, and mitigate incidents on the road. The package includes:
As drivers explore the mid-level EX model and the top-of-the-line Touring model, they’ll find more technology features geared toward safety. An SMS text message function lets drivers send and receive messages safely when behind the wheel. And with a navigation system and voice recognition, drivers can input instructions without taking their hands off the wheel or their eyes off the road.
