"The new 2019 Honda Insight signals we are entering a new era of electrification with a new generation of Honda products that offer customers the benefits of advanced powertrain technology without the traditional trade-offs in design, premium features or packaging", stated Honda exec, Henio Arcangeli Jr.
More news about the 2019 Honda Insight should be made available in the near future. The brand new twin-motor auto revives the long-standing Insight name, with Honda aiming to slot the hybrid into its range above the Civic as a more premium compact option.
In 1999, Honda started production of the original first-generation Insight, which was a subcompact hybrid sedan that stayed in production until 2006. The batteries are packaged underneath the rear seat, maximizing trunk space and allowing for 60/40 folding rear seats.
Although Honda calls the Insight a prototype, the concept has gotten the green light; the automaker says it'll arrive in late 2018.
It will also come with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration and Wi-Fi-enabled over-the-air system updates. The tech specs are already in - a new variant of the company's two-motor hybrid powertrain, down from 2 liters in the Accord hybrid to a 1.5-liter Atkinson-cycle, putting it into perspective directly against competitors such as the Hyundai Ioniq and Toyota Prius.
On the safety front, Insight will include Honda LaneWatch on EX and above and Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety technologies as standard equipment, including Collision Mitigation Braking System, Lane Departure Warning, Road Departure Mitigation, Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow and new Traffic Sign Recognition.
Actually, the look of the Insight, Accord and Clarity are all very similar and the size differential between the three cars isn't substantial, which could cause some buyers to have to think long and hard about which of the three to buy because of the similarity.
Honda has said that it expects the Insight to get a combined fuel economy rating from America's Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of more than 50mpg. No word yet on whether there will be a plug-in version. Honda says the Insight will operate exclusively under electric power in most situations, with the engine acting as a generator when necessary.
Essentially, then, this is Honda's new Toyota Prius rival picking up from where the discontinued Civic hybrid left off. Honda says the Insight's sleek design, premium features, refined driving performance, and high fuel efficiency will set it apart from other compact hybrid rivals.
That said, there are some notable tweaks to the appearance of the 2019 Ford Edge ST that signal it has a meaner disposition. That engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission, standard all-wheel drive with selectable traction control.
