Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Forget the other Hondas to wear the Insight name, the 2019 Honda Insight is what “normal” will look like for small cars in the near future.

Pros
Fuel-efficient powertrain
Conservative, handsome styling
Spacious interior
Excellent value
Standard active safety features

Cons
Somewhat noisy cabin
Pokey acceleration
Missing Apple CarPlay/Android Auto in base trims
Will anyone notice a hybrid sedan?

For its new-for-2019 Insight, Honda isn’t choosing to spotlight only its hybrid pedigree and EPA fuel-economy ratings—which are as high as 52 mpg combined—instead focusing its pitch on the Insight being a quiet, comfortable, very well-equipped sedan that happens to carry some eye-popping efficiency numbers.

Pros
Civic-like excellent road manners,
quiet ride,
thoughtful interior.

Cons
Coarse engine character,
busy powertrain.

After a five-year absence, the Honda Insight returns as an all-new hybrid sedan.

Styled like a conventional sedan
Refined interior with excellent materials

CONS
Rear seats lack creature comforts
Drives as though it has a continuously variable automatic transmission
Engine can sound coarse under hard acceleration

The 2019 Subaru Legacy is no thrill machine, but this under-the-radar mid-size sedan is hard to beat for its comfort, safety, and value.

Pros
Safety comes standard
Roomy, comfortable interior
All-season confidence
A lot of car for the money

Cons
Light on performance
Optional 6-cylinder guzzles fuel
Just average to look at
Rare on dealer lots

By:

Car shoppers looking for a vehicle that can comfortably carry four or five passengers, in deep snowbelt territory, often see SUVs as the only way to get around. But the 2019 Subaru Legacy proves that this midsize sedan has what it takes to keep up when the roads get nasty.

Pros
Standard all-wheel drive for extra wet-weather traction
Excellent outward visibility
Standard active driver assist features

Cons
Engines less powerful compared to those of rivals
