2020 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid Specs

Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid

It’s no surprise that the standard Plug-in Hybrid is our model of choice. Equipped with 18-inch alloy wheels and LED head-, tail-, and daytime running lights, it certainly looks good. It’s also just as efficient as its more expensive sibling, and just as safe, as it gets the full Honda Sensing safety suite, which includes forward collision avoidance and lane departure mitigation. The eight-inch touchscreen interface doesn’t get any easier to use, and the standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto cover most navigation functions. The heated seats are nice, too, even if they’re not leather-appointed.
