Combine practicality and comfort with excellent fuel economy in hybrids like the 2019 Honda Insight and 2018 Toyota Prius. But which model is best suited to your daily drive? Our comparison guide is here to help. Read on to discover how these models stack up in a head-to-head competition.

Interior Comfort and Space

Key 2019 Insight Interior Specs:

  • • Seating for Five
  • • High-Quality Cabin Materials
  • • 15.1 cubic feet of Cargo Space**

The 2019 Honda Insight is our pick for passenger comfort and space. This year, Honda redesigned the Insight, delivering a wheelbase and rear legroom stats that are similar to those of the spacious Civic. That makes the Insight an excellent addition to your family life. Unlike the Prius, which features a plasticky dashboard, the Insight is home to high-quality materials that remind you more of a luxury sedan. And, speaking of sedans, the new Insight is straying from its hatchback roots in favor of a traditional sedan look. Because the Insight's lithium-ion battery pack is stowed under the seat, you get the full use of the trunk’s 15.1 cubic feet of cargo space.**

Passenger Safety

Noteworthy 2019 Insight Safety Features:

  • • Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Emergency Braking
  • • Lane Departure Warning and Mitigation
  • • Rearview Camera

This year, the Honda Insight comes standard with the Honda Sensing Suite. This bundle of driver aids helps you navigate busy highways and avoid collisions. It includes lane departure warning and mitigation, which gently steers you back into the proper lane should you stray. The forward collision warning system with automatic emergency braking is designed to scan the road ahead for potential collisions. Should it detect one, it can automatically apply the brakes to mitigate or even evade damages. All Honda Insight trim models are also equipped with a rearview camera, which comes in handy when you’re backing out of a tight spot.

Infotainment Technology and Convenience

2019 Insight Technology:

  • • 8-inch Touchscreen
  • • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • • 4G LE Wi-Fi Hotspot

Once again, the 2019 Honda Insight trumps the Toyota Prius. This newly redesigned hybrid sedan is stocked with all the latest tech features. The mid-grade EX and top-trim Touring include an 8-inch touchscreen, which responds to your touch in a timely fashion. The infotainment system includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities, displaying smartphone apps like Maps, Messages, and Phone on your central touchscreen. This way, you don’t have to look down at your smartphone as you travel up the highway. The Insight even offers a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, so your favorite passengers can surf the web on longer trips.

The 2019 Honda Insight and 2018 Toyota Prius are both excellent examples of fuel-efficient hybrids, but the Insight is our overall pick. But you don’t have to take our word for it.
