Welcome and congratulations! The EX is the sweet spot for features and fuel economy. A very good choice. I have a '19 and a '21. My '19 has a white interior and has been no issue to keep clean.

Interesting fact: Your color - Orchid White Pearl - was only offered for one year. Starting in 2020, the color was changed to Platinum White Pearl. The difference is very subtle and not really noticeable unless you had the two side-by-side. The Orchid is deeper and a little more sparkly (and better IMO).

Just noticed the tires are Goodyears on your car. Stock tires on the EX are Michelin Energy Saver A/S. Wondering if the Goodyears you have are LRR tires. This can make a significant difference in fuel economy.

Goodyear makes an Assurance tire which is LRR and is indicated by a "Fuel Max" logo right after the word "Assurance" on the tire (looks like a gas gauge). There is a different LRR Assurance as well with a "CS" logo on the tire. Either of the two are LRR tires. Curious what the tread depth of your new tires is. Generally, new LRR tires start with less tread depth than regular tires (< 10/32").

With respect to the discontinuation of the Orchid White Pearl paint after 2019, that paint is a three-step paint and, therefore, more expensive to produce. If you have a white 2019 Insight, you have the right to feel special!
