Roomy and with the latest technology onboard the 2019 Honda Insight aims to offer a premium compact experience above the best-selling Civic

2019 Honda Insight Prototype Interior Dashboard

Though officially a prototype, the version we'll be treated with shows the final design direction Honda is taking with its new Insight.

The wheelbase and length of the new vehicle have grown over the previous Insight, although Honda hasn't yet specified the new car's dimensions.

Honda didn't release full specs but said the sedan will slot between the Civic and Accord in the automaker's hybrid lineup, and it will offer seating for five.

In 1999, Honda started production of the original first-generation Insight, which was a subcompact hybrid sedan that stayed in production until 2006.

Inside, the Insight will be available with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, and an onboard Wi-Fi connection that will enable over-the-air system updates.

Actually, the look of the Insight, Accord and Clarity are all very similar and the size differential between the three cars isn't substantial, which could cause some buyers to have to think long and hard about which of the three to buy because of the similarity. Those include adaptive cruise control, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure alert, and a new traffic-sign recognition feature that's been used on European cars for several years but is just making its way into mass-priced US vehicles.

Ecuador seeks mediator to resolve 'unsustainable' Assange ordeal
Maria Fernanda Espinosa , Ecuador's foreign minister, said, "We're considering and exploring the possibility of a mediation". He sought asylum in the Ecuadorian Embassy in London and today police have said he will still face arrest if he leaves.


The real star of the show, however, is the car's 2-motor hybrid system.

Although Honda calls the Insight a prototype, the concept has gotten the green light; the automaker says it'll arrive in late 2018.

The Insight's 1.5-liter inline-4 that operates on the highly efficient Atkinson Cycle is paired with Honda's clever two-motor hybrid system, which substitutes entirely for a conventional transmission.

Honda says the Insight will offer "class-leading" power, but does not define what that is.

The 2019 Insight is just the first of many hybrids, plug-in hybrids and electric cars on their way to your local Honda dealer over the next decade. In the Clarity, this powertrain delivers a combined output of 212 horsepower-103 hp from the gas engine and 181 from the electric motor-but the Insight could hierarchically be slightly less powerful. "The Honda Insight is anticipated to receive fuel economy ratings competitive with the best hybrids in the segment, with styling that will have universal appeal inside and out and best-in-class passenger volume".

Unlike the new CR-V, however, the third-generation Insight is not bound for Europe, but it will sit in the brand's U.S. line-up between the Civic and the Accord.
