The 2019 Honda Insight is an all-new hybrid car that comes in three trims. This mid-size sedan boasts several new safety features, like the Traffic Sign Recognition and Acoustic Vehicle Alerting System. Some of the Honda Sensing driving aides have also been improved. Under the hood, the 2019 Insight retains a gasoline-powered engine block that runs on the traditional i-VTEC mechanism. An electric motor and lithium-ion battery define the all-new design of the powertrain. This hybrid sedan is available in several stylish exterior colors, such as Crimson Red, Aegean Blue, Lunar Silver and White Orchid.

This compact powertrain kicks out 107 horsepower and approximately 100 pound-feet of peak torque. The legendary i-VTEC technology controls the DOHC valve train of this I-4 engine. An electric motor works with a lithium-ion battery to supplement the output from the gasoline-powered engine. This efficient Honda sedan runs on an electronic continuously variable transmission (ECVT) system, which has the Sport Mode. Additionally, the ECVT has deceleration selectors and a shift-by-wire feature. Several other mechanical installations improve the performance of the all-new Insight model, such as the Eco Assist System. When the engine revolves at high RPM levels, the Active Noise Cancellation silences some of the noise. The Hill Start Assist gives this mid-size sedan a forward push on an inclined surface.

The Collision Mitigation Braking activates extra pressure on the brakes when an accident is imminent. You'll have some time to react to a critical situation when the Forward Collision Warning turns on. When you hold on to the steering wheel, you might feel some slight adjustments from the Lane Keeping Assist, which supplements the Lane Departure Warning. Also having all-new status, the Traffic Sign Recognition utilizes high-resolution cameras to scan any traffic signs that are posted along your route. If you're a commuter, you'll love the Low-Speed Follow function that's been added to the Adaptive Cruise Control. Some of the 2019 Insight's other notable active safety features include the LaneWatch and Auto High Beam. Featuring the SmartVent technology, the side airbags in the front cabin offer superb protection against lateral collisions at fast speeds.
