2019 Honda Insight review

Honda Insight
The 2019 Honda Insight is a conventional-looking five-door.

The first Honda Insight was a small two-door, two-seater, with a “unique’ shape. It appeared as a 2000 model. The second came along in 2009 as a five-door, five-passenger hatchback on a unique platform, which later housed the CR-Z. The third generation Insight is now on sale and it is a plain old four-door, five-passenger sedan. I say that in a positive sense. This latest Insight is indeed plain – in looks and in operation. Instead of crying out visually that it is a hybrid, it looks like a slightly more conventional, and to these eyes better-looking Civic. It also drives like one, and houses a similar amount of people and packages. Think of it as a Civic with better fuel mileage and more interior space..

At the age of five I was already obsessed with all things automotive being able to identify the make and model of car by just the sound of its engine going down the street in front of our house in the small town on the south shore of Nova Scotia. Although I have been covering and writing about the automotive scene for more than 40 years and the light still grows brightly.
