new honda insight dealership vancouver island courtenay comox valley bcIf you are in the market for a hybrid offering great fuel economy and conventional sedan styling, you’re in for a treat with the 2019 Honda Insight Touring! Consumers praise this green car for its highly refined drivetrain and comfortable ride, delivering exceptional value for the most enjoyable ownership experience.

Starting with what’s under the hood, the 2019 Insight is equipped with a hybrid powertrain made up of a 1.5-litre four-cylinder that works to supply power to an electric motor that drives the front wheels. Combined system output is 151 hp and 197 lb-ft of torque, plus there is a 1.1-kWh lithium-ion battery located under the rear seats. According to a review by Clayton Seams of Driving.ca, fuel economy is set at 4.6 L/100 km in the city and 5.3 on the highway, which he claims is fantastic mileage for a car of this size.

He also admired the Insight for its sophisticated looks and stylish design. Unlike other hybrid variants with sci-fi characteristics, this Honda fits in well with its Civic and Accord siblings, boasting features like LED foglights, a sunroof and a quality interior with leather upholstery and heated front seats. Measuring a full 4.66 metres long and 1.9 metres wide, the Touring trim is spacious and accommodating with seating for five and boasts 949 mm of rear row stretch-out space. The sedan’s longer 2,700-mm wheelbase also translates to a more comfortable ride quality that’s sure to please.
