Hi, just joined. I wanted to put on window deflectors. With my previous car 2006 Civic (225,000 miles) I got them from WeatherTech and I liked that they fit in the window slot instead of taped to the outside. Does anyone know if the 2019 Civic has the same window shape as the Insight. I have seen a few posts where people have gotten civic accessories and they fit. I have had a hard time finding info from my web searches. Thanks in Advance!

I'm not certain if the windows are the same size as the Civic even though the Insight is built on the Civic platform. Just want to give you a heads up about making sure the deflector is not deflected onto the camera housing near the top of the front windshield.

Since you mention window deflector and slot/outside, it sounds like you're referring to WeatherTech's in-channel attachments that sit at the top of the side door windows. It looks like WeatherTech doesn't list this side window deflector for the Insight (yet), which is probably why you're asking the question about part interchangeability with the Civic. :)

When you ignore the front/rear end and tires, the profile of the two cars look so similar they're hard to tell apart (attached) - same top arch and notch size/location on rear passenger doors. Also, this online part store lists the OEM door/window visor as the same part number for both the GenX Civic and Gen3 Insight, so I think that's a good sign that the aftermarket version will also be interchangeable.

If you're not feeling confident in this guesstimate recommendation, an option would be to head to the dealer and measure. I'm sure they'd love to see you. ;) I measured/compared the Civic and Insight seats and trunk at the dealer to ensure that Civic OEM rear seat cover and Civic OEM trunk tray would fit the Insight. I found the measurements between the cars nearly identical (small differences - due to my measuring?), which leads me to believe you'll find the door/window specs the same on both cars as well.

Good luck with the search! Keep us posted on what you learn and/or how it turns out.

The WeatherTech site (still) lists the 'Side Window Deflectors' as not available for the 2019/2020 Insight, so there was question on whether the WeatherTech's Civic version would fit (since same body basis as Insight).

I haven't seen pictures in forum yet of WeatherTech's Civic deflectors installed onto an Insight, but some pictures of what it looks like on a Civic are here - CivicX Weathertech In-Channel Window Visors

The few other mentions of door visor installations have used the OEM/dealer version. Some pictures of those are here by @Nessy1735 - Lowered and got new shoes for my insight

The WeatherTech version costs less than the OEM version (and sits differently), so I guess it comes down to cost/design preference (?).

Just wanted to share these window deflectors that I just got recently from ebay.
I used to have the same brand on my 2011 Honda CRZ and the quality was pretty good.

Team Heko Window deflectors for the GenX Civic 4d sedan

I really like the simplistic look of these.

Before the installation, I replaced the very cheap pre-installed double sided tape and replaced it with some legit 3m branded one.

The front door pair fit in very snug, I could have gone without the double sided tape to be honest.
However the rear set was super lose. I hate to do it but, I had to use the metal clip on the side of the window because the deflector was getting snag by the window going up and would stop it all the time.

Bought these on ebay for around 70 USD.
The package was shipped from Latvia. It took almost 2 months to get to me (Ohio), it was sitting at ISC Chicago majority of the shipping time.

I was going to put a pair on because I thought it might reduce the wind noise around the door, but it did not look like it would help much. However your picture makes it look like a lot cleaner fit than I was led to believe. Let me know if you notice a reduction in noise, please.

Will do. I've used in channel weathertech deflectors in the past, but these attached to the door frame via 2 sided tape along with 2 clips that go into the window gasket:


Not the OEM one but the install was the same for me.

I know this is an old thread but I spent some time searching online to try and find in-channel vent visors that fit the 2022 insight and after reading this and then reading a ton of Amazon reviews I ended up getting the AVS ventshades from Amazon for about 55 bucks. Ordered the ones for gen x civic, and they fit just fine, nice and neat. Part number was 194682. Includes all 4 visors and fits in the channel. Hopefully this helps anyone who is looking for an option here in the future.
