The all-new Honda Insight will make its global debut next week at the North American International Auto Show where it will be positioned above the Civic as a premium compact.
The Insight sports a low and wide stance, highlighted by Honda’s signature “flying wing” grille, low-profile LED headlights and taillights followed by a long coupe-like roofline.
Riding on a long wheelbase, the 2019 Honda Insight will offer class-leading passenger space and premium features like perforated leather seating, an 8-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a 7-inch digital LCD cluster.
Powering it will be a 1.5-litre twin-motor hybrid system where in most conditions the Insight operates on electric power only. The hybrid batteries are located under the rear seat to provide a full-size boot with 60:40 split-folding rear seats.
The Honda Insight will be included with the Honda LaneWatch and Honda Sensing suite of advanced driving aids such as Lane Departure Warning and Low-Speed Follow to name a few, like the ones in the Honda Accord and CR-V available locally.
At the previous edition of the North American International Auto Show, Honda announced its Honda Electrification Initiative and its intention to make two-thirds of the brand’s global vehicle sales to be electrified vehicles by 2030, including hybrid, plug-in hybrid, battery electric and fuel cell vehicles.
