Check out this 2019 Honda Insight Hybrid review to discover what’s in store for this sedan!
2019 Honda Insight Hybrid: Performance Specs
There are two common reasons why a driver might purchase a hybrid vehicle. First, they’re trying to shrink their carbon footprint. Second, they’re trying to save money at the fuel pump. The 2019 Honda Insight Hybrid will help you do both. Just take this car’s fuel economy, for instance. With the combination of an inline 4-cylinder engine and an AC Synchronous Permanent-Magnet Electric motor, the Insight maintains an EPA-estimated 55 MPG city and 49 MPG highway.1 There’s also a 3-Mode Drive System at play here, so you can decide how your sedan performs based on your mood. ECON mode cuts down on engine efficiencies to maximize your fuel conservation. EV or Electronic Vehicle mode allows you to operate primarily on your electric motor. Finally, Sport mode amps up the speed for a faster, more powerful experience.
Your Comfort is a Priority
In the past, the added powertrain components in hybrid cars have reduced their overall cabin space, making for a slightly cramped ride. However, the 2019 Insight Hybrid was designed with your comfort in mind. The Insight Hybrid makes rooming for five passengers, offering up a total of 97.6 cubic feet of space. As driver, you’ll have 39.3 inches of headroom and 42.3 inches of legroom. So, you should have no trouble stretching out a little bit. There’s ample trunk space, too, so you can load up the car for your next road trip. With 15.1 cubic feet of trunk cargo room, load up all your bags and gear without sacrificing interior room.
Safety Features You Can Count On
Seeing as it has something of a smart interior design, it shouldn’t surprise drivers that the Insight Hybrid also bring smart safety to the table. Namely, it makes Honda Sensing® standard equipment on all trim levels. If you’re unfamiliar with Honda Sensing®, it’s essentially a suite of collision prediction and prevention technologies. Utilizing cameras and sensors, Honda Sensing® will watch the road for you, alerting you to potential dangers. Some features in the Honda Sensing® suite, such Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow can act autonomously to avoid accidents. This feature monitors your following distances when cruise control is engaged. If the car in front of you slows down, your Insight can autonomously slow itself down, too.
