More and more manufacturers are breaking in to the hybrid market, but the hybrids made by Honda still stand a cut above the rest. Their engineers and designers have already debuted a whole fleet of new hybrids, and this year, the 2019 Honda Insight is grabbing the attention of drivers all across West Michigan. The experts at Car and Driver have described this hybrid as “a joy to drive around town,” and once you’ve explored the Honda Insight’s standard features, you’ll see why it’s in a league of its own. We’ve highlighted a few standout technologies from each Honda Insight trim level. Read on to find out what this one-of-a-kind compact sedan can do for you.
Priced at $22,830 MSRP,* the 2019 Insight LX E-CVT’s baseline trim level is a perfect fit for drivers who want efficiency, safety, and value.
Hybrid Fuel Economy: The Insight’s LX trim level uses a 1.5-Liter engine and an AC Synchronous Permanent Magnet Electric Motor to get 55 mpg in the city, 49 mpg on the highway, and 52 mpg when moving between the two. Touring models get 51 mpg city, 45 mpg highway, and 48 mpg in combined settings.**
Honda Sensing: A Collision Mitigation Braking System, a Lane Keeping Assist System, a Road Departure Mitigation System and Adaptive Cruise Control come standard in every model. They work automatically alongside your Forward Collision Warning and your Lane Departure Warning, helping you avoid accidents and stay out of harm’s way.
3-Mode Drive System: The Insight lets you switch between an all-electric EV mode, a fuel-saving ECON mode and—surprisingly to some—a Sport mode! In Sport mode, you’ll receive stronger inputs from your battery and your gasoline-powered engine.
Drivers who want to delight their passengers will find plenty to get excited about in the 2019 Insight EX E-CVT, priced at $24,060 MSRP.* Its entertainment and convenience features will help you, your friends, and your family get more out of every drive.
Remote Engine Start: When you want to get on the road in a hurry, or when you’re trying to beat extreme weather, use your key fob to start your engine from a distance! This technology pairs with Smart Entry and Walk Away Auto Lock technology, features which lock and unlock your doors upon detecting your approach or departure.
8-Inch Display Audio System: The Insight’s EX trim has been equipped with an 8-Inch Display Audio high-resolution touch-screen interface that you can use to control all your favorite features. Its customizable button tiles help you avoid the hassle associated with endless menus, and it also includes hard keys and knobs for an instant response.
Smartphone Compatibility: The Honda Insight’s EX trim can be paired with a device using the HondaLink smartphone app, which offers immediate access to tons of useful information and updates on your vehicle. An SMS Text Message Function, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto all come standard on this trim.
Superior comfort and technology features can be yours when you upgrade to the 2019 Insight Touring E-CVT trim, priced at $28,090 MSRP.*
High-End Comfort Features: This Hybrid’s Touring trim features a Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel, Leather-Trimmed Seats, an 8-Way Power-Adjustable Driver’s Seat, a 4-Way Power Adjustable Passenger’s Seat, and Heated Front Seats too!
Stay Connected: The Insight makes it easy to stay connected to the tools and information sources that you depend on. This trim level can act as an independent mobile hotspot, and what’s more, Satellite-Linked Navigation comes standard. The navigation can be controlled with your voice and it offers HD Digital Traffic, 3D viewing, and more.
450-Watt Premium Audio System: When you can play your music as it was meant to be heard, you and all your passengers will get more out of every drive. Touring models are the only Insights that offer a 450-Watt Premium 10-Speaker Audio System with a subwoofer.
