For example, higher trims and package upgrades include full leather upholstery and heated, power-adjustable front seats so that you'll stay warm and enjoy your optimum driver position.

This sedan comes outfitted with a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine paired with an electric motor that, together, generates 151 horsepower. This combination powertrain utilizes an electronic continuously variable transmission that functions and feels much like an automatic transmission. With it, the vehicle can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 7.7 seconds -- pretty remarkable for a hybrid sedan! Furthermore, the model enjoys smooth braking that switches between the regular breaks and the hybrid system's regenerative brakes for a sound, confident braking experiencing.
  • Tons of room in the back. The 2019 Honda Insight boasts a unique design that places the battery pack beneath the rear bench seat which results in an increased trunk cargo hold. Keep the seats upright and in place to enjoy 15.1 cubic feet of cargo space in that trunk area, or fold the seats flat to increase for major hauling.
