Few midsize sedans can lead quite like the 2018 Honda Clarity. Of course, there’s the hybrid technology, but shoppers will also find performance, a premium cabin, the latest dash tech innovations, and advanced safety systems. It is available in base and Touring variants.
Engineers were instructed to create a sedan with curb appeal. The resulting body is finely sculpted with aerodynamic lines. LEDs are used for the jewel-eye headlights, taillights and brake lights. Heated side mirrors wipe away the frost, and you can fold them away when you park. Walk-away door locks keep your Clarity secure until you return.
Taking Charge of Your Drive and Your Fuel Expenses in Montreal, Quebec
Clarity sedans are powerful; the powertrain generates 212 net horsepower. A four-cylinder engine is assisted by the electric motor and battery pack. When charged, Clarity sedans can go 76 kilometres before you need your gas engine. The electric motor alone produces 232 lb-ft of torque. Few cars can offer this level of power without making a sacrifice in fuel efficiency.
Kilometre after kilometre, you’ll save money. When the whole powertrain is engaged, efficiency is 5.3L/100KM (city) and 5.9L/100KM (highway). The combined electric-equivalent rate is 2.1L/100 KM. It’s hard to argue with numbers like that.
Battery charging is easy with a 120-volt standard outlet. If it’s plugged in at night, it’s ready by the morning. With a 240-volt outlet for speedy charging, it just takes 2.5 hours.
Peace of mind is included with your Clarity purchase. Honda Sensing provides serious warnings and a touch of automation. When driving, the Clarity sensors can detect stopping traffic, warn the driver to stop, and trigger an automatic braking system, if necessary. If the driver loses control and the sedan starts to leave the pavement, road departure mitigation helps the driver get back on track. A lane keeper intervenes to maintain a safe trajectory.
