new honda insight hybrid comox valley courtenay duncan bcConsidering the Toyota Prius or the Hyundai Ioniq? Add one more option to the mix with the 2019 Honda Insight Touring. This hybrid is based on the highly-successful Civic sedan and boasts incredible fuel efficiency with a high-quality interior for the most enjoyment behind the wheel.

Anchoring the 2019 Insight is a 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine that powers the electric motors to create 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 pack, which is tucked away under the back seats so you won’t be limited in trunk space. In terms of fuel efficiency, you won’t be disappointed either since the Insight achieves a rating of 4.6/5.3 L/100 km city/highway. With B.C.’s high gas prices, this is surely a welcome benefit!

According to Motor Trend, the Insight also boasts more passenger volume and rear-seat legroom (949 mm) than the Prius and Ioniq. Cargo capacity is comparable to the Honda Civic with 416 litres in the trunk of the Touring. Other standard features include upscale leather upholstery with heated power-adjustable front seats, a navigation system and a 10-speaker premium audio system. The sunroof and dual-zone automatic climate controls are nice standard inclusions as well.

Enjoy a more premium experience in the new Insight. To schedule a test drive in this hybrid car, contact Island Honda in Courtenay, B.C.
