What's New for 2019: Honda

November 30, 2018

Honda dug deep into its history to name two new models added to its lineup for the 2019 model year.

The 2019 Honda Passport revives a badge the automaker last offered more than 15 years ago, and it may be just what crossover SUV shoppers want. At the opposite end of the spectrum, the 2019 Honda Insight is a thrifty hybrid sedan that's lighter on quirk than the last model to bare its name, but higher on fuel efficiency. 

Otherwise, Honda made active safety tech available on its HR-V, shuffled its Accord lineup, and updated the Civic compact sedan, coupe, and hatchback.
