Honda announces 3rd gen Honda Insight (2019) = a less ugly Civic sedan



Honda is recycling the Insight name again. 3rd time's a charm?

This time, instead of building a dedicated hybrid platform as it did for the first 2 cars, the 3rd attempt looks like a de-uglified version of the Civic sedan.



So basically, it's a Civic Hybrid in all but name, with slightly less crazy sheet metal and fewer fake vents.

We don't know any drivetrain details yet.

Jalopnik says the above "prototype" will be shown at the upcoming Detroit auto show, so we may learn more details then.
