Well, it seems that the 2019 Honda Insight may be made from a different mould after all; with the first two generations getting little by way of traction, it seems that the new model may just be the one to take on its competitors successfully. To recap, the first Honda insight was more of a box that struggled hard to fit in with the mainstream market and the next one, well, the shape and the design was weird, to say the least. That’s why when news broke out about the new Honda, it got the buzz going. So we decided to collate all the information on the new upcoming Honda insight and have posted the review below, check it out.
It seems that the 2019 Honda Insight may look more than a tad like the civic hybrid since some of its main features are borrowed from the same. But if the rumours are to be believed, it seems that the Honda Insight would come out with more than a few borrowed features, it is going for a near-complete makeover starting with the overall design of the car. It is expected that the new model will feature a more mature design that would allow it to fit in comfortably with the mainstream market. It is expected that the car will beef up in both comfort features, as well as on safety.
Exteriors, under the hood
The 2019 Honda Insight comes with a brand new fascia, reworked fender and a better design than the earlier variants. The new model also comes with two hybrid engines which replace the transmission; this car should be able to seat at least four people in comfort and style and comes with softer sheet metal contouring for the exterior and an aerodynamic design to boot. It also comes with 16-inch alloy wheels along with LED headlights.
It also comes with a 103.6-inch wheelbase, the stronger suspension which should help you to enjoy a comfortable ride on it. And while this new model is a sedan it offers larger storage space that’s almost equal to some of the top hatchbacks. The new model comes in several trims and some of the advanced features may be found only in some of the top trim types such as touring. But this model also comes with a rear folding seat on all the trim types.
The 2019 Honda Insight comes with an overhauled interior with all the creature comforts, from adjustable seats to heated ones for the top trims like Touring. Moreover, the Touring model also comes with a sunroof which can cut into the available headroom but makes up for it with a nice aesthetic finish. The interiors are spacious enough with comfortable legroom both in the front and back and the fact that the backseats can be folded is just an added bonus.
The new model also comes with 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system along with integrated Apple play and Android Auto. The advanced trim model, Touring also comes with navigation, driver assist, HD digital traffic along with voice recognition and premium audio speakers.
