Although it may seem like the 2018 Honda models just hit our lot, the friendly dealers at Honda of Grays Harbor are already anticipating the automaker’s 2019 lineup. One of the most exciting new car announcements to date is the 2019 Honda Insight, which will be a new hybrid Honda sedan for the 2019 model year. This will be the third time that Honda has used the Insight name for a hybrid sedan, but this new model will be completely redesigned as a compact sedan with a trunk.
Unlike hybrid cars from certain competing automakers, the 2019 Honda Insight will have plenty of cargo space with a full-size trunk. Instead of being located in the trunk, the batteries will be held under the rear seats in order to create more storage space. On the interior, buyers will be treated to perforated leather seating and 60/40 split rear seats. In terms of tech features, the hybrid car will boast all the latest convenience and entertainment-focused features, including an 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® available. The vehicle will receive over-the-air updates via a standard Wi-Fi connection.
Looking under the hood, the new Honda Insight will use the latest configuration of the Honda hybrid powertrain system. This uses two electric motors and a 1.5-liter gasoline engine, plus lithium-ion batteries. The vehicle is not a plug-in hybrid, so you won’t ever need to plug it into the wall to charge.
If you’re asking, “Where can I talk to Honda car dealers near me who can tell me more about the 2019 Honda Insight?” the answer is Honda of Grays Harbor.
