How Does the All-New 2019 Honda Insight Go the Extra Mile for Your Everett, WA Drive?

The short answer: in practically every way a hybrid with three generations and two body-style evolutions across its storied history should.

The new compact sedan from Honda is back and better than ever for the 2019 model year in LX, EX, and Touring trims, and it's already commanding the attention of long-distance travelers looking to get some mileage out of Seattle's greater 98290 area. Sure, Honda Insight is exceptionally economical with its fuel, thanks to an efficient ECON mode, a short-distance, fully electric EV mode, and energy-recouping deceleration selectors that use regenerative braking to keep its battery charged. But it checks all the other boxes to boot.

For one, it's capable. A 107-horsepower, 1.5-liter, four-cylinder Atkinson-cycle engine, which runs on gas, couples with a highly resourceful 129-horsepower electric motor and lithium-ion battery, delivering a net 151 horsepower -- plenty to keep things agile. What's more, changing gears is nearly seamless thanks to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with shift-by-wire. It controls shifts electronically, letting you quickly and easily adjust with the press of a button.

Secondly, it's remarkably safe. This owes to a proprietary safety and driver-assist suite, Honda Sensing® technology, which helps you stay in-lane, on track, at a safe distance from traffic, clear of accidents, and even aware of local traffic rules.

It's even superbly comfortable, characteristic of the Honda ride. That's due to premium seating that's available heated, in leather trim, and power-adjustable for a lap of luxury, as well as an optional dual-zone automatic climate control, perfect for creating a cabin suited to conditions outdoors.

But most of all, it's expertly equipped. An easy-to-use 5-inch color display standard at base becomes available 8-inch touchscreen infotainment at higher trim levels, complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for connecting a smartphone, Pandora, SiriusXM, and HD Radio support to keep everyone entertained, and an optional premium audio system belting 450 watts of sonic power via ten speakers to make that road trip soundtrack a symphony. You'll even find mobile hotspot capability optional for a connection to civilization around Lynnwood, WA's 98087 neighborhood. That's not to mention available Honda satellite-linked navigation with a voice recognition feature, great for getting between the Everett area's 98208 zip, Kirkland, and Bothell out 98012's way
