2019 honda insight dealer vancouver island courtenay bcTake a stand against climbing gas prices with the 2019 Honda Insight Touring! This hybrid platform promises supreme fuel economy, along with exceptional on-road performance, from its highly-refined drivetrain.

Under the hood, the Insight is powered by a 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine that generates the electric motors and drives the front wheels, while producing 151 combined total horsepower and 197 lb-ft of electric motor torque. It comes paired to an electric-continuously variable transmission with a 1.1-kWh lithium-ion battery that is located under the rear seats. Fuel economy is practically unbeatable at 4.6/5.3 L/100 km city/highway, which is sure to save you at the pumps.

On the road, the Insight drives more like a regular car than a hybrid, which is ideal for newcomers to the segment. Acceleration is strong too with a 0-100 km/h time of 8.1 seconds, while the regenerative braking system is predictable and easy to modulate. The Touring trim also promises great value with a host of standard features, including leather upholstery with heated power-adjustable front seats, a navigation system and a 10-speaker premium audio system. A sunroof and dual-zone automatic climate 
controls accent the cabin as well.
