The 2018 Honda Clarity Test Drive Results


At Longueuil Honda, located on the South Shore near Montreal, we impatiently wait for new models each and every year. The 2018 Clarity got our attention well before it hit the market, mostly because the pictures of this new hot car made a lot of people talk. Indeed, many found the exterior aspect of this hybrid vehicle weird. Everyone has different tastes, and the real beauty comes from the inside… On this level, though, the 2018 Clarity got all it needs!



The number one fear that drivers have regarding hybrid vehicles is the battery autonomy. You can rest assured that the 2018 Honda Clarity’s engines won’t let you down: its electrical engine allows for 76 kilometers on its own. As for the charging time, it will not be a problem: 2 hours and a half on a 240 volts electric plug and this baby is ready to go! On the hybrid vehicle market right now, these are top specs that are only beat by one other model.

You don’t have time - or a place - to charge your car right now? Don’t worry, the 1.5-liter gas engine will take it from there, and it won’t cost you much either: we’re talking about an average consumption of approximately 5.6 L/100 km.


Comfort and Driving

Sedans’ fans will be pleased by the 2018 Clarity’s high level of comfort, in part because it offers a size comparable to an Accord’s. Both the front and the back seats are comfortable, with enough head and legroom for people of all shapes and sizes. Also, the 2018 Clarity comes equipped with an infotainment system similar to the one found on the Honda Civic.

The Clarity can seem a tad heavy, from time to time, but that’s because it has to carry a 17 kWh battery. However, the car is well-balanced thanks to its low gravity center, and thus has a surprisingly pleasant road handling for a vehicle of this size. Plus, its 212 horsepower and its impressive torque make this model an excellent option both in the city and on the road. The visibility is excellent, and driving modes can be customized and changed in an instant.
