Like a hybrid Civic, only better
Bill Burke, 7/23/2018
Every 2 or 3 years I upgrade my Civic. Anyway, just traded in my 2017 Civic EX for the 2019 Insight EX. I got a good price $23,300 and the car is worth the extra 3K. It feels like a larger car, rides smoother and a little less sporty, but I'm getting older, so I like to feel the road less. It is my first hybrid and I like driving it. If I put into sport mode, well it is not insane like the Tesla, but the response is immediate. I did a 0-=60 and got less than 8 seconds. That's respectable enough for me. The only downside is the various engine sounds that they designed into it. I think that is unnecessary and it loses half a star for that. While the pros don't like the lanewatch, I prefer it to beeps of the BSM system. I'm a big boy, I can determine with my eyes whether it is safe to change lanes. I would like it on the left side, but it is not as "blind" on that side admittedly.I am always getting over 50 MPG which saves me $30+/month. No, maybe the ROI is not great, but just like having the solar panels on my house, I feel I am doing my small part to help the environment. I like the sedan because when I was growing up, that's all there was, Plus they still are more efficient. The few times I carry stuff in the trunk, I feel it is safer than in the hatchback.anyway, I am very happy with this car. We will see how it holds up and I'll update if anything changes.
Fantastic value
Ron Belisle, 7/15/2018
My wife and I purchased the EX trim on June 29, the day it hit the dealer lots and started out 2 days later for a 3,000 mile trip from Columbia, MO to Houston, TX to Spokane, WA. Here are some of my thoughts and impressions. For the 3,000 mile trip we got 44.5 mpg in Econ mode. It was hot and we had the A/C running always. Plus we were traveling at 83-85 mph through states like Montana with a posted 80 mph interstate speed. Often in a city the Current Drive indicator read 55 mpg or even higher. There have been some situations in the city that it gets up to 100 mpg on short trips of 5-6 miles. The ride is smooth, like a heavier car which we both like. However, when accelerating up hill or when accelerating quickly to pass another car, the small internal combustion engine kicks in and it's fairly loud. It has comfortable seats in it handles very well. For some reason the passenger seat is a couple inches lower than the driver’s seat, which my wife doesn’t like. Love the tech and instrument control panel and all the features it tells you about performance, fuel, range, etc. Really love the Apple Car play, although can't use Google Maps yet with Apple Car play until IOS 12 comes out. That will happen soon though. It's a great value for the $24,850 we paid.
I like the car, watch out for dealer installed opt
Jesse Koehn, 7/28/2018
Ordered a touring model with parking sensors. Dealer had to install parking sensors, they do not work, system error, to install they had to remove both front and back bumpers, remove drivers seat, carpet, this should be standard equipment from the factory. The holes they drilled for the parking sensors have chipped rough cut holes around the sensors, and they scratched and dented the drivers side bottom door panel. It took the dealer over 8 hours to install and the car shows a service error on the dashboard, and do not work. I would show pictures, but Edmund's does not have any options to upload.
Almost Perfect Package
Don Elman, 7/17/2018
If you want Prius-like gas mileage, a compact sedan with good-sized trunk, Apple CarPlay, and modern safety features, the 2019 Honda Insight EX seems like an excellent package at a reasonable price. We purchased this model as soon as it arrived in dealers and have driven it for three weeks on city streets, freeways, and country roads. It’s quiet, comfortable, peppy, and drives like a dream with standard assistive features like adaptive cruise and lane keeping. Though it lacks radar-based blind spot/rear cross traffic detection, the right-side LaneWatch camera has been helpful when changing lanes. The controls and entertainment interface—while perhaps suffering from too many choices—seem intelligently designed and fairly easy to learn. Overall we have not been disappointed.

Honda Insight vs. the competition

Honda Insight vs. Toyota Prius

No hybrid comparison is complete without mentioning the Toyota Prius. In regard to fuel economy estimates, the Prius has the advantage at 56 mpg in combined driving. The Insight isn't far behind, registering a 52 mpg estimate. Bigger differences can be found in the personalities of these cars. The Insight looks like a typical sedan, while the Prius maintains its function-over-form silhouette. The Insight also drives more like a conventional car and is more responsive to your gas pedal inputs.

Honda Insight vs. Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid

Pricing for the Ioniq is very similar to that of the Honda Insight. The Ioniq has a slight edge in fuel economy, but an unnatural brake feel, elevated road noise, and lackluster ride and seat comfort hold it back. The Insight is generally more comfortable and enjoyable to drive.

Honda Insight vs. Kia Niro

Were it not for some subtle hybrid badging, you'd think the Kia Niro was any other compact crossover SUV. Its fuel economy is a little less than the Insight's. But at 49 mpg, it's still impressive considering the Niro's size. Like the Insight, the Niro has its hybrid batteries under the rear seats to allow for more cargo space. Get the Niro if cargo carrying is a priority. The Insight, however, offers a superior driving experience.

More about the 2019 Honda Insight

After a five-year absence, the original hybrid is back. This time around, the 2019 Honda Insight foregoes the futuristic or Prius-like styling in favor of a more conventional sedan appearance. It's offered in a base LX trim, the midgrade EX and the range-topping Touring.

Under the hood is a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine that charges a 1.1-kWh lithium-ion battery under the rear seats. With the electric motor that drives the front wheels, the combined output is 151 horsepower and 197 pound-feet of torque. The electric motor provides primary propulsion, and the gasoline engine supplies power directly to the wheels under heavier acceleration.

Standard feature highlights for the LX include automatic LED headlights, automatic climate control, active noise cancellation, a multi-angle rearview camera, a 5-inch touchscreen, and a six-speaker audio system with a USB port and internet streaming radio. It also comes with plenty of advanced safety features such as adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning and mitigation, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams, a traffic sign reader, and a driver attention monitor.

Stepping up to the EX, which is our pick in the lineup, adds keyless entry, a rear-seat center armrest, 60/40-split folding rear seats, an 8-inch touchscreen, HondaLink smartphone integration, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, and an eight-speaker audio system with satellite and HD radio and an additional USB port. The Honda LaneWatch blind-spot camera system is also included.

The top-of-the-line Touring model comes with LED foglights, a sunroof, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated front seats, power-adjustable front seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a navigation system with voice activation and real-time traffic, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a 10-speaker premium audio system.

The 2019 Honda Insight is priced competitively against the Hyundai Ioniq Hybrid, Kia Niro and Toyota Prius. We like the Insight for its more conventional styling and driving characteristics, even though it has a slight disadvantage in fuel economy. Take advantage of all the information and tools here at Edmunds to see which one is right for you.
