First of all, it does come across as a surprise that the car made a comeback in the first place. The Honda Insight has never been super successful. However, the Japan-based automobile manufacturer has always worked towards updating the model in an effort to draw in more attention.

The 2019 Honda Insight model is way better than the original Insight, for sure. The company has decided to settle with the conventional body style with this.

The vehicle’s front end styling looks a lot like its bigger brother, Accord. The front panel is completed in terms of looks through the use of LED headlamps. For now, the automobile manufacturer is not revealing great details regarding Honda Insight’s genetic makeup specifications. Neither does it look like they have the intentions of commenting on the specifications matter of the car.

Honda goes on to state that the vehicle’s engine is meant to function as a generation in all the possible scenarios. The Honda Insight then ends being “a version of its well-regarded 1.5-liter four backed by a new two-motor hybrid system will deliver a city/highway EPA fuel economy rating in excess of 50 miles per gallon,” notes CNET. It sure is an impressive number, especially in comparison to its arch-rival Toyota and what they have to offer. The company also goes on to promise “split-folding seatbacks,” despite the presence of the lithium-ion battery pack underneath the rear seats.
