2019 Honda Insight Named Green Car of the Year

By Justin Cupler | December 12th, 2018

Following its exit after the 2014 model year, things fell silent for the Honda Insight. Then, seemingly out of nowhere, the insight returned in 2019 atop a Honda Civic platform and looking better than ever. Today, all the thought and hard work Honda put into developing the 2019 Insight pays off with it winning the Green Car of the Year award from Green Car Journal*.

This marks the fourth time Honda has earned this prestigious award, as the 2012 Civic Natural Gas, 2014 Accord, and the 2018 Clarity lineup all took home the honors in years past. The 2019 Honda Insight may be the best of all the victors as it is not only thrifty but fun to drive too.

The 2019 Honda Insight boasts a 107-horsepower 1.5-liter engine and a 129-horsepower electric motor that do a special dance to the tune of 151 total horsepower and 197 pound-feet of torque. This gives the Insight a nice boost off the line while still getting up to an EPA-estimated 55 mpg city, 49 highway, and 52 combined in all trims other than the Touring*.

On top of its peppy powertrain, experts have raved about the Insight’s comfort. It’s Civic-sourced platform sucks up pothole bumps with the best of them while its roomy and peaceful cabin keep everyone inside plenty comfortable.
