What's New in the 2019 Honda Insight?

Which Insight is the Best?

Given the refinement, space and equipment you get compared to other low-priced hybrids, the base Insight represents tremendous value. That said, for only an extra $1,230, the EX trim adds an abundance of desirable features, most notable a fold-down rear seatback and Honda's latest touchscreen interface. As such, we think that's the one to get. Find a Honda Insight for sale

2019 Honda Insight vs the competition

2019 Toyota Prius -- The Insight's prime competitor. Its hatchback cargo area may be more versatile, but the Prius is louder and less refined than the Insight. It's also pricier. Watch how the Insight and Prius interiors compare

2019 Hyundai Ioniq -- Many of the same comparisons can be made between the Insight and the Ioniq as can be done with the Prius. There's one major difference: the Ioniq's lower price tag and its superior warranty.

2019 Honda Accord Hybrid -- Bigger, more powerful and even more refined, the Accord Hybrid is pretty much just a nicer Insight (with a heftier price, of course).

Used Chevrolet Bolt -- Why not consider a certified pre-owned electric car for the same price as the Insight? Chevrolet's well-executed Bolt is starting to trickle into used car inventory. It provides more than 200 miles of range and impressive performance.
