Whatever the sales, profitability should be greatly improved for this generation, thanks to far greater sharing of tooling. The second-gen car was based on the crash architecture of the Fit hatch but looked drastically different (10.7 inches longer, 3.8 inches lower), but this one represents an exterior restyle of the Civic sedan with fastback styling cues vaguely reminiscent of the Mazda6 and Buick LaCrosse.

The original Insight launched in 1999 as a streamlined two-door hatch and the first hybrid to reach the U.S. After discontinuing the nameplate in 2014, Honda is bringing back the model as a premium five-passenger sedan. We learned today that the new 2019 Honda Insight makes a total output of 151 hp and 197 lb-ft of electric motor torque. Based on internal certification testing, Honda estimates the Insight can hit up to 55 mpg in the city. Official EPA estimates have not yet been released.

To achieve these numbers, the compact sedan utilizes a 1.5-liter Atkinson cycle four-cylinder engine and two-motor hybrid system. In most scenarios, the gasoline engine, connected to the generator motor, produces electricity that feeds the electric propulsion motor and/or the lithium-ion battery pack. Honda says the Insight can drive for short distances of roughly a mile on electricity alone. This applies if the car is in Normal mode; drivers can also choose Econ and Sport driving modes.

That cute Honda Urban EV? Customers can place orders early next year

  That cute Honda Urban EV? Customers can place orders early next year The Honda Urban EV will be Honda's first mass-produced battery electric vehicle sold in Europe. It seats four through its wide-opening, rear-hinged doors, and the cabin features a very large display, with door-mounted screens serving as side mirrors. It will be interesting how much of the concept's detailing and solutions will make it to the production car. And while the Urban EV's minimalistic design harkens back to first and second generation Civic hatchbacks, it's unlikely to be as affordable as those entry-level Hondas were.

"The new 2019 Honda Insight signals that we are entering a new era of electrification with a new generation of Honda products that offer customers the benefits of advanced propulsion technology without the traditional compromises in design, premium equipment or packaging

By now you've probably noticed the Insight looks a lot a Civic, and that's no accident. It sits on the same basic architecture as the 10th-generation Civic. However, the Insight gets a unique aluminum hood that cuts weight, and additional sound insulation has been put into the engine bay, front fenders, and other areas to keep the cabin quiet. The Insight boasts a fully independent suspension system with Macpherson struts up front and a multi-link setup in the rear.

Three trim levels will be available: LX, EX, and Touring. Some standard goodies include a 7-inch instrument cluster screen, six-speaker audio system, LED headlights, heated side mirrors, and a rear seat that folds. Honda Sensing technology is also included, which bundles together collision mitigation braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control with low-speed follow, and traffic sign recognition.
