Honda reveals production version of 2019 Insight hybrid sedan
Just ahead of the New York auto show this week, Honda has taken the wraps off the production version of its 2019 Insight hybrid sedan. The vehicle design teaser was offered by Honda in January this year when it was unveiled as a ‘concept’ without an interior.
The 2019 Honda Insight is a hybrid version of the longstanding Honda Civic four-door sedan. The new hybrid sedan has been redesigned with a front and rear styling which is notably much smoother, more ‘adult’ and more aerodynamic.
The impressive-looking 2019 Honda Insight hybrid sedan is scheduled to arrive at the company’s dealerships in “early summer.”
According to the details shared by Honda, the 2019 Insight will have the projected ability to achieve a fuel economy of “up to 55 mpg” in the city, and a combined fuel-economy of “50 mpg or better.” The powertrain of the fuel-efficient Insight will deliver a total output of the 151 horsepower and 197 pound-feet of torque.
Honda has also revealed that the new Insight hybrid sedan will be equipped with the company’s two-motor full hybrid system. Alongside the two motors substituting for a transmission, the sedan will have a 1.5-liter 4-cylinder engine which will operate on the exceptionally efficient Atkinson Cycle. Moreover, the new Insight, as per Honda’s claims, will boast the best power-to-weight ratio in the ‘compact hybrid’ segment.
