2019 Honda Insight In Stock Now
Ed Voyles Honda has taken delivery of the new 2019 Honda Insight. This compact hybrid offers a new level of power, passenger space and sophisticated styling to the Honda lineup. The new Insight’s body, chassis and powertrain combination have been designed to offer a satisfying driving experience. With a total system output of 151-horsepower, the Insight delivers brisk acceleration not found in most other hybrids.
Powered by Honda’s third generation two-motor hybrid drivetrain, the new Insight operates without the need for a conventional automatic transmission. The powertrain uses power from the gasoline engine and electric motors to accommodate real time driving conditions. The new Insight operates in three distinct drive modes: EV Drive, Hybrid Drive and Engine Drive. When operating in EV Drive the Insight uses only the electric drive motor, drawing power from the battery. In Hybrid Drive the gasoline engine drives a generator motor to deliver electrical power to the drive motor. Either EV or Hybrid Drive modes are used for most driving conditions. However, when needed, the Insight uses Engine Drive to connect the gasoline engine directly to the drive wheels.
The new 2019 Honda Insight is offered at an attractive price point and is available with three different trim levels: LX, EX and Touring. Standard equipment across all models include multi-element LED headlights, push-button start, and the Honda Sensing® suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies. The EX model is equipped with an 8-inch Display Audio with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration. Insight Touring models include upscale features such as, leather seating surfaces, an 8-way power driver’s seat, Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™ and dual-zone automatic climate control.
Clever placement of the Insight’s compact battery under the rear seats allows for expanded passenger and cargo space. This new model affords up to 97.6 cubic feet of interior space and 15.1 cubic feet of trunk space (LX/EX models). A 60/40 split folding rear seatback also allows for versatile cargo space options including transportation of long or tall items.

Honda Certified Program Makes “10 Best CPO” List
The Certified Pre-Owned Program offered by Honda has been recognized as one of Autotrader’s “10 Best Non-Luxury CPO Programs for 2018″. Honda’s certified program includes 7-year/100,000 mile coverage and additional 1-year/12,000 mile bumper-to-bumper coverage. Auto trader recognized the Honda CPO program for these benefits as well as for the program’s transferability and lack of deductible.
In their study, Autotrader experts examined multiple criteria for CPO programs across multiple automotive brands. The study included factors such as powertrain warranty length (with a minimum of six years or 100,000 miles of coverage from the original sale date), available inventory, bumper-to-bumper warranty coverage, deductible amount, and transferability to future vehicle owners.
All certified pre-owned Honda vehicles must pass a thorough 182-point inspection before gaining “Certified” status. These vehicles are less than six years old and have less than 80,000 miles on the odometer. Honda’s stringent guidelines gaurantee the exceptional quality and longevity of CPO Honda cars, vans and SUVs.
“Beyond being budget friendly, buying a certified vehicle provides an extra level of comfort, knowing your car has been through a rigorous inspection and is backed by the manufacturer for an extended length of time,” said Brian Moody, executive editor for Autotrader. “Sometimes, that warranty is longer than you get with a new car and is certainly better than with a non-certified used car.”
Our Honda Dealership near Atlanta has a beautiful selection of Certified Pre-Owned Honda models to choose from. If you are looking for an affordable vehicle that you will love to drive for years to come we invite you to explore our inventory and come take a test drive soon.
