The third-generation Insight is billed as a hybrid "without any inherent compromise."
Honda has previewed the all-new 2019 Insight, reviving the hybrid nameplate for a spacious five-passenger sedan.
Pictures of the third-generation Insight show a prototype, seemingly in production-ready form. The model now appears to be sized similarly to the Clarity and Civic sedans, continuing to grow from the first- and second-generation Insight hatchbacks.
Styling meshes with Honda's latest products, arguably taking the most inspiration from the new Accord.
Despite reviving a name that once identified a two-seater clearly built for hypermiling, Honda apparently wants to separate the new Insight from the idea of a hybrid in terms of aesthetics and performance. It is powered by the company's latest two-motor full hybrid powertrain, designed to smoothly transition between electric internal combustion power.
"You won't have to be an electrification advocate to appreciate the new Insight - it's a great car in its own right, independent of what's happening under the hood," says American Honda sales manager Henio Arcangeli, Jr.
The all-new Insight will make its formal debut in Detroit next month before entering production in Greensburg, Indiana, alongside the Civic and CR-V sometime later in 2018.
