The New York International Auto Show saw the introduction of quite a few vehicles, but none stood out quite like the 2019 Honda Insight. The new hybrid sedan features a set of amenities that few competitors can match. The addition of the Honda Insight fills the role of premium compact sedan in the automaker’s lineup.
“The Insight is another symbol of a new era in the evolution of Honda electrified vehicles, where customers can have everything they want with no compromises,” said Henio Arcangeli, Jr., senior vice president of American Honda Motor Company, Inc.
The Honda Insight will be slotted between the Honda Civic and Accord. The sedan rides on the Civic platform, but features a longer wheelbase. Strategic battery positioning results in a larger trunk and more legroom.
