New Honda Insight details emerge ahead of NAIAS debut
First Look: Honda's sleek new Insight compact hybrid emphasizes style as much as it does efficiency
12 January, 2018, 12:13
When it finally launches in production flavor towards the end of 2018, Honda's2019 Insight will slot above the compact Civic. New on the 2019 Insight will be Traffic Sign Recognition. The wheelbase is longer, therefore, while the stance is lower and wider. With the Insight, there is no tall tail or oven-door hatchback window as in the Toyota Prius, Hyundai Ioniq, or Honda's own Clarity. Honda notes that the pack's location under the rear seat allows for full use of the trunk.
We do learn that inside the cabin, an 8-inch infotainment system and a 7-inch digital LCD will serve the driver and the front passenger, coupled with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a Wi-Fi-based OTA system.
On EX and higher trims, the Insight will come standard with the Honda Sensing group of safety technologies, including adaptive cruise control with low-speed following capability, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, Road Departure Mitigation (which helps keep the vehicle on the road), and traffic sign recognition capability.
A number of driver assistance and safety systems have been introduced into the new auto which include Honda LaneWatch and the Honda Sensing suite. It does not work for the left side of the auto.
Where previous hybrids have been compromised by their electrification, the new Insight will be "a great auto in its own right, independent of what's happening under the hood", said Honda's USA boss, Henio Arcangeli. The powertrain will be able to operate on electric power alone in most conditions as it draws energy from the engine that acts as a generator or the battery pack.
In the larger and heavier Clarity Plug-In Hybrid mid-size sedan, the drive motor is rated at 135 kilowatts (181 horsepower) and 232 pound-feet of torque. The company says that the motor will work as a generator in nearly all conditions, empowering a form of its very much respected 1.5-liter turbo four backed by another two-engine hybrid system, that will convey fuel economy in excess of 50 miles for every gallon. No word yet on whether there will be a plug-in version. By 2030, Honda expects two-thirds of all sales will consist of electrified vehicles. As well more conventional styling than the first two generations, the 2019 Insight will also place a greater focus on interior space for passengers and cargo.
The Insight will be manufactured at Honda's Greensburg, Indiana plant, alongside Civic and CR-V using domestic and globally sourced parts.
