The New 2019 Honda Insight
Like many popular automotive manufacturers, Honda is continuing to add to its growing lineup of electrified vehicles and its newest Hybrid model is coming to JL Freed Honda.

With sleek lines, a coupe-like profile and wide stance, as well as details like the "flying wing" grille the new Insight offers a sophisticated yet elegant design. The tasteful use of chrome, used by Honda, and dynamic character lines also emphasize this premium compact sedan’s unique character.
Careful attention was also paid during wind-tunnel testing to control airflow over, under, and around Insight for optimum fuel efficiency and noise reduction. This vehicle’s low aluminum hood also helps to reduce weight and improve air flow and visibility. Underneath, the Insight even features the flattest underbody of any Honda production vehicle, helping smooth airflow under the car as it travels rearward, and reducing wind noise in the cabin.
This Honda model’s long wheelbase even provides for a class-leading 97.6 cubic feet of passenger space (LX/EX), including 37.4 inches of rear legroom, which is up to four inches more than top competitors. Placing the Insight’s hybrid battery under the rear seats also provides up to 15.1 cu-ft of trunk space, bigger than many gasoline-powered midsize sedans, while preserving the people- and cargo-carrying flexibility of a folding rear seatback.
