Honda is set to unveil its 2019 Insight prototype at the upcoming Detroit Auto Show. This all-new hybrid is estimated to deliver 50 miles per gallon along with segment-leading interior space and room for five adults.
Positioned as a premium compact model, this comely sedan will sit above the popular Civic in the Japanese automaker’s American lineup when it goes on sale later this year.
As with previous gasoline-electric Hondas, a two-motor hybrid drivetrain will power this new Insight. The primary motivator here is an economical 1.5-liter Atkinson-cycle engine, though it’s aided by a duet of electric machines and an energy-dense lithium-ion battery.
