The 2019 Insight looks mature, more like a downsized Accord and less like the racier and somewhat overstyled Civic.

Smoked taillight lenses may or may not be a Prototype-only touch.

A sloping backlight looks great and gives the Insight a bit of the "four-door coupe" styling that's so in vogue these days. 

Let's hope they've preserved rear headroom the way they magically did with the Accord.

The interior features an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with available Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Honda claims the Insight will have class-leading passenger space.

This overhead view gives a good sense of the Insight's overall proportions and offers a view of the hood detailing.

"Prototype" in Honda-speak means that this is 99 percent production ready. Expect very minor changes, perhaps an inch-smaller wheels and tires and larger side mirrors.

LED headlamps are standard.

That trunk will have a split-folding rear seat back to maximize cargo room, but we still wouldn't expect as much luggage space as a Prius.

Honda calls its recent grille design the "flying wing," and it intersects the headlamps in this application.

Large 19-inch wheels will be likely smaller in production, at least in lower-end trims. These ones look like Cuisinart blades.

Expect production Insight mirrors to look a lot like this, only a bit thicker to afford larger glass and better visibility.
