The 2018 Honda Civic ranked #3 in Compact Cars. Currently the Honda Civic has a score of 8.8 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 40 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros

Plentiful cargo space
Spacious seats
Great fuel economy

Cons

For 2018, Honda has tinkered with the availability of certain features. Overall, though, the Civic is unchanged.For mainstream Civic buyers, we think the extra power and fuel economy of the turbocharged 1.5-liter engine make it one of the Civic's best options.

PROS
Excellent fuel economy and performance from turbocharged engines
Ride quality expertly balances comfort and athleticism
Many available advanced technology and safety features
Roomy cabin with high-quality materials

CONS
Slow-responding adaptive cruise control system
Overly vigilant forward collision warning system is frustrating
Touchscreen interface is confusing and slow to respond to inputs

The 2018 Honda Clarity ranked #13 in Midsize Cars. Currently the Honda Clarity has a score of 8.1 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 9 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Highly efficient
Pillowy ride

Cons
Audio controls lack knobs and buttons
Timid highway passing power
Rivals are more agile

The 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid, the only version distributed nationally, is spacious, comfortable, competitively priced, and offers excellent electric range.

Pros
Comfortable mid-size sedan
Well-equipped for the price
Smooth, quiet ride
High plug-in hybrid range rating
Zero emissions for 2 of 3 models

Cons
Strange, bulbous proportions
Fuel Cell model tethered to hydrogen stations
Low range of Electric version
Only Plug-In version has five seats
Can Honda explain plug-in hybrids?

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2018 Honda Clarity range now includes plug-in hybrid and electric versions that join the Clarity Fuel Cell.Among the three versions, the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid easily makes the strongest case for itself. And among the two trim levels, we say stick with the base one and forgo the Touring trim's leather seats and navigation. Options are limited to accessory items, except for the rear parking sensors that we'd suggest adding.

PROS
Comfortable, well-appointed cabin seats five people
Solid driving range in all versions except Clarity Electric
Pleasant ride quality in electric and plug-in hybrid versions

CONS
Polarizing styling
Limited availability of all but Clarity Plug-In Hybrid
Touchscreen infotainment system can be cumbersome to use
