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

Pros

Cons
Strange, bulbous proportions
Fuel Cell model tethered to hydrogen stations

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

The 2018 Honda Accord Hybrid ranked #8 in Midsize Cars. Currently the Honda Accord Hybrid has a score of 8.4 out of 10 which is based on our evaluation of 23 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Good fuel economy
Expansive rear seats and trunk
User-friendly infotainment system
Good predicted reliability rating

Cons
Rivals are more upscale
So-so handling

By:

The Honda Accord Hybrid is fully redesigned for 2018.Now standard safety features such as adaptive cruise control, forward collision mitigation, blind-spot monitoring and lane departure warning add quite a bit of value to the base Accord Hybrid.

PROS
Suite of newly available tech and safety features
Cabin has plenty of room for adults
High fuel economy
No loss of cargo space over traditional Accord

CONS
Low seating position slightly hampers entry and exit
Not as quiet as some rival sedans
