Discover the 2018 Clarity’s High-Tech Efficiency

The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid’s powertrain sets it apart from the rest of the competition, as well as the rest of the Honda lineup. You’ll enjoy the following highlights:

  • Gasoline and electric engines combine for 181 hp and 232 lb-ft of torque, enough power for motoring through the streets and highways of Frankfort.

  • The Clarity’s battery charges in two ways. First, regenerative braking adds power to the battery when you slow down. Unlike traditional hybrids, you can also plug in the Clarity and enjoy up to 47 miles of all-electric range2.

  • In all-electric mode, the Clarity reaches 110 MPGe2, and it supplies 42 MPG2 in gasoline-only mode. No matter which way you drive, you’ll enjoy fuel-sipping efficiency.

  • Quick charging times let you power the Clarity and get back on the road fast. With a 240-volt charger, you can fully charge the vehicle in 2.5 hours3.

As you can see, the Clarity’s powertrain allows you to balance performance and efficiency in surprising new ways.

What Features are Included in the 2018 Clarity?

While many hybrids are only equipped with barebones systems, the Clarity is surprisingly well-equipped. The following amenities are included even in the base trim:

  • Collision Prevention Braking

  • Road Departure Prevention

  • Active Cruise Control

  • Lane Keeping Assistance

Best Buy Awards Highlights

Let’s take a closer look at some of the categories to see why Kelley Blue Book has chosen these vehicles:

  • The 2018 Honda Civic has earned a Best Buy Award* in the small car category for four years in a row thanks to its excellent efficiency and modern features.
  • Not only did the 2018 Honda Accord win in the midsize car category, it also earned the 2018 Overall Best Buy Award*. Its recent redesign adds high tech systems while retaining the excellent build quality Honda is known for.
  • The crossover category gets more and more competitive each year, but for 2018, the Honda CR-V has knocked it out of the park. Kelley Blue Book praised its luxurious amenities and overall versatility.
  • In early reviews, Kelley Blue Book called the 2018 Honda Odyssey the “best family car in the world,” with a flexile interior that’s miles ahead of the competition.

How Does Kelley Blue Book Choose the Best Buy Awards?

One of the biggest areas Kelley Blue Book looks at is overall resale value and 5-year cost to own. This lets you know how much a vehicle will depreciate over that time period. In addition, extensive real world testing of pre-production and new models informs their decision. This ensures that a Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Award winner will meet your driving needs for years to come.
