Default Honda Insight 3rd gen. 2019.

This thread is dedicated to discussion on the 3rd generation Insight.
Here is the first article I have found. Please add links or info you may have.
P.S. Honda design could be watching this forum so maybe we should post our hopes for the third gen also.

Is the car missing skirts? Looks like the rear wheel arch may be disguised to look open and traditional. Or could just be my imagination.

Not much, hope the insight is a Prius and Ioniq killer, lighter and more efficient

An insight needs skirts, G1 was ideal for me, MT xmsn and all

How about some sound deadening Honda? Just because it's an econobox does not mean it has to be miserable.

The car in the pictures is a mule, not a prototype.

Most likely the new Insight will look like the last incarnation of the Clarity, that is if it is't one and the same car after all.

I read that it was just a shell (you can see weld lines where the body was "stretched" to accommodate the Insight mechanics)

It will likely be a hatchback as well; that was in another article I read. It would be amazing for it to be made to surpass the G1s; but I doubt it will.

A shell and a mule are the same, just a package to test a drivetrain

https://www.google.com/amp/s/ca.moto...ule-spied/amp/

http://www.2018hondamodels.com/2019-...nsight-hybrid/

Given they make 7kg 30hp motors now days they could easily integrate a motor right on the main cog of a 5sp manual

Would be interesting in the future to see 2 and 4 door versions of the Insight sold at the same time.

Yep, I agree. Shell/Mule the same.
I'd love to see another manual Insight. But it seems like the articles were leaning towards CVT. It would be nice to see the MPGs reach close to G1 standards.

Honda is leaning toward a serial hybrid setup like the accord, no CVT needed

I think Honda would have to beat G1 if they want to beat the Gen IV PRII,

The serial drivetrain lends itself to PHEV which would make for an interesting possibility.

Ah well, 2 years to wait, might even be Euro zone only we won't know for a long time

I think Honda needs to quit while they're ahead if their idea of advanced styling is the current Civic and the new Accord. The last good looking Civic came out in '06, the last good looking Accord came out in '03 (especially the coupe and they no longer make an Accord coupe), and the last good looking hybrid came out in 2000. They blew it on the Gen II Insight, as well as the CRZ. I still love my Hondas, their just not new ones.
