2019 Honda Insight: Green Car of the Year


Looking for a fuel-efficient sedan to drive around your Cicero neighborhood in? Want a vehicle outfitted with the latest tech and features? Then look no further than the 2019 Honda Insight. The Honda Insight was, in fact, the very first hybrid (yes, the first Insight was released in 1999, years before the first Toyota Prius), and now its back better than ever. The following is a quick look at the newly released 2019 Honda Insight and why it's being considered the Green Car of the Year and why you should consider adding it to your Cicero driveway this winter:


5 Reasons to Fall in Love With the 2019 Honda Insight: Green Car of the Year

  • Powerful and efficient powertrain. The 2019 Honda Insight boasts an incredible hybrid powertrain that consists of a 1.5-liter I4 engine that generates 107 horsepower and 99 pound-feet of torque, a propulsion electric motor that generates 129 horsepower and 197 pound-feet of torque, a generator motor, and 60-cell lithium battery pack. With this combination, the Honda Insight offers owners an incredible fuel economy of 55 miles per gallon in the city and 49 mpg on the highway.
  • Lots of standard safety tech. This compact hybrid comes outfitted with an exciting array of standard safety tech. This means every 2019 Honda Insight from the base trim up has the standard Honda Sensing package which includes features like road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, and even the innovative new traffic sign recognition system.
  • Outstanding handling. The 2019 Honda Insight was built off of the much beloved 10th-generation Civic platform with some key improvements -- not that such a best-selling sedan really needed it. This year's Insight model features upgraded front lower L-arms and an E-shaped multilink rear suspension that boasts three lateral links over the previous two. The result is a very fun and confident driving vehicle that Cicero residents will enjoy taking out either in downtown streets or out in the country. Plus, this model comes with standard Agile Handling Assist that further enhances the model's cornering prowess thanks to the use of brake torque vectoring.
  • Ultra-comfortable Touring trim. While the lower trims of the 2019 Honda Insight offer nice amenities and a comfortable interior, the range-topping 2019 Honda Insight Touring trim is the must-have for those looking for the creme de la creme of interior possibilities. That's because this gorgeous version of Honda's hybrid features premium perforated leather-trimmed seats, a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, a dedicated area for smartphones easily located next to two USB ports, and door panels and dashboard area boasting soft, leatherlike surfaces. Its the type of interior you'd expect on a luxury-branded sedan and one that those who like pairing comfort with efficiency will absolutely love.
  • Nice cargo options. Another bonus of the 2019 Honda Insight is just how much usable space it has. Thanks to the battery pack and fuel tank being housed underneath the rear seats, this model enjoys an expansive rear cargo area of just over 15 cubic feet. Plus, this set up allows for a spacious back seat with significantly more legroom than hybrid competitors Prius and Ioniq.
