55-MPG Honda Insight Hybrid Goes on Sale Today For Under $23,000
Buying an affordable car is just as much about paying a low initial price as it is about getting a car with a low cost of ownership over time. Strong fuel economy goes a long way toward the latter, so finding a very efficient car at a low price is a winning combination.
Which means that we now have what is possibly the winningest combination of all: the all-new 2019 Honda Insight Hybrid, which is rated at an EPA-estimated 55 mpg in the city, is finally available in dealerships as of today starting at $22,830, offering excellent efficiency and a premium driving experience in an affordable package.
Typically, strong EPA ratings come at the cost of performance, but the Insight Hybrid’s advanced powertrain technology produces 151 horsepower and a very sharp throttle response to ensures that’s not the case.
Honda has also taken great care to make driving the Insight Hybrid feel like a truly upscale experience the like of which you wouldn’t expect from a sub-$23,000 green car. Standard equipment includes keyless start, multi-element LED headlights, the Honda Sensing suite of driver assistive technologies, and a digital driver’s meter.
The EX trim, which starts at $24,060, adds an infotainment system with 8.0-inch touchscreen, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration; and the top-of-the-line Touring, which starts at $28,090, gets premium leather upholstery, a satellite-linked nav system, dual-zone automatic climate control, and an eight-way power driver’s seat.
With the addition of the Insight Hybrid, the Honda lineup, which was recently expanded to include the new Clarity Series, is greener and more diversified than ever.
