2019 Honda Insight Touring Review, Features

Honda Insight is a gasoline-electric-hybrid model that delivers astonishing efficiency and exterior styling. The 2019 Honda Insight Touring is a top-ranking trim level that offers nothing but the luxury.

Sadly, the price you’ll have to pay for the leather seats and other premium amenities is mirrored in the lower mileage than the base model. This sedan offers an amazing exterior design that looks more like a real sedan than the modern weird-looking hybrid car such as the Toyota Prius. The 2019 Honda Insight Touring model will use a 1.5-liter Atkinson drivetrain in a combination with the two electric motors. The performance is amazing and the interior looks really comfortable and modern.

2019 Honda Insight Touring exterior is sporty and stylish

What Honda manages to deliver is a universal and appealing design for the third-generation of this model. The wide and athletic stance and sporty styling are looking gorgeous. While the base model is looking good, the 2019 Honda Insight Touring is a car for itself. Aggressive exterior starts with the “flying wing” front grille and the roofline that is more coupe and less hatchback. 17-inch alloy wheels and standard moonroof are in the offer as well.

Built on a compact platform, the Insight Touring model sports plenty of handsome features and styling cues. Next, to the roof panel and rear quarter panels, we can see a very unique shape that looks more than handsome.

Just like the exterior, the interior also looks familiar and it comes with astonishing features. The cabin looks classy and plenty of modern touches are present. And while most of the styling cues and shapes are taken from different Honda’s models, the 2019 Honda Insight Touring offers its unique cues. The dash looks interesting and the chrome strips are exceptional.

The two-tier layout looks premium, especially on the Touring models that hold more soft-touch materials and contrast stitching. The Touring model offers plenty of standard equipment that is optional on the lower trims. That includes leather seats with heating option, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and much more. Moreover, Insight Touring is the roomiest Insight so far.

The rear-legroom is rated at 37.4 inches which are class-leading numbers. The trunk offers 15.1 cubic feet of space which are similar to the midsize car numbers.

2019 Honda Insight Touring powertrain and fuel economy

The third-generation of the Honda Insight means new drivetrain. The 2019 Honda Insight Touring model will ride on a two-motor hybrid variant. A 1.5-liter Atkinson-cycle gasoline unit and the pair of electric motors are very efficient. Moreover, a 60-cell lithium-ion battery pack is in the offer.

The total output is rated at 151 HP and 197 lb-ft of torque. Those numbers will put new Insight model above its competitors. Sadly, the base model comes with a mileage that is set at 55 mpg. The Touring model will offer only 49 mpg in the city, which may come as a disappointment.

2019 Honda Insight Touring price and release date

The forthcoming 2019 Honda Insight Touring will cost around $30,000, more or less. Honda didn’t announce the pricing numbers yet, but we expect the base model to cost in line with the competitors. With that in mind, the base model should cost around $24,000. This hybrid car will go on sale in the summer of 2019.
