Now is the right time to be getting excited about the 2019 Honda Insight, the third generation of this Honda hybrid compact car. What will the Insight offer as far as fuel economy, passenger space, and technology? That's a question we want to answer for Milledgeville, Eatonton, and Sparta drivers in this car preview.

We'll cue you in on all that we know so far including the latest on the 2019 Honda Insight release date. If you have any questions, reach out to our friendly team at Butler Honda!

2019 Insight Fuel Economy

Let's get right to it: The primary reason shoppers choose hybrid cars like the 2019 Insight is fuel economy. What can this car achieve? The numbers look impressive enough to keep trips to the pump at bay. The LX and EX trims should get an EPA-estimated 55 city and 49 highway MPG from their 1.5L 4-cylinder gas engines with electric motors1.

The top-tier Touring trim will be right on their tail with 51 city and 45 highway MPG per EPA estimates1. If you want to squeeze the most distance out of your fuel, you'll like the standard three-mode driver system. It includes an ECON mode that optimizes power and accessory load to deliver maximum efficiency for you.

Lush Interior Appointments and More

The Honda Insight will share the Civic's 106.3-inch wheelbase, giving it an interior that we expect to look like the Civic in size. With second-row legroom coming to 37.4 inches, adults will have plenty of space to stretch their legs in the back seat.

Cabin appointments are expected to be high grade including real stitching for the soft instrument panel covering and a 7-inch digital display on the instrument panel itself. Leather seating is available exclusively in the Touring trim and you can choose between black and black mocha for a sporty yet distinguished look.

The 2019 version of the Insight will be a sedan unlike its previous-generation hatchback counterpart and will feature a 15-cubic-foot trunk. That gives you plenty of space for groceries, sports bags, and luggage alike!

Advanced Active Safety Features

We expect the 2019 Insight to come fully equipped with standard Honda Sensing®, a suite of driver assist features that can help you avoid or mitigate accidents and stay in control on the road. It includes:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control: keeps a set following distance behind detected vehicles
  • Collision Mitigation Braking System™: applies brake pressure to mitigate oncoming collisions
  • Lane Keeping Assist: adjusts steering to help keep you from drifting into other lanes

Available Honda LaneWatch™ can help you feel more confident about changing lanes by giving you more passenger-side visibility when the moment arrives.
