2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid Safety Features
If you’re intrigued by the 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid, there’s a good chance it has plenty to do with its outstanding fuel economy numbers and unique electric motor that allows it to drive up to 47 miles on a full charge without using any gas. ¹
But at Norm Reeves Honda Superstore West Covina, we know that cars are more than just gas mileage to drivers in Glendora, Baldwin Park, and La Puente. You have to consider the interior amenities, exterior appeal of the vehicle, and the safety features. Safety is important, particularly when you have passengers in the car with you. Here’s a closer look at the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid safety features you’ll enjoy when driving.
Clarity with Honda Sensing®
Even if you have your eyes on the road at all times there’s still a chance you can miss something, or an animal or debris could come out of nowhere to catch you off guard. There’s a reason every 2018 Clarity is equipped with Honda Sensing®—the full suite of driver-assistive technologies designed to protect you and those riding in the car with you.
Here’s what this suite of safety features is all about.
Collision Mitigation Braking System™: This can bring the car to a complete stop with automatic application of brake pressure if a frontal collision is imminent. This system helps avoid a collision with debris, an animal, or a pedestrian.
Road Departure Mitigation System: If you’ve crossed over a detected lane without using a turn signal, this system can provide steering assistance to guide you back to the lane you were in. It can also brake to prevent the car from careening off the road altogether.
Lane Keeping Assist System: With your hands firmly on the steering wheel, longer highway drives are easier with this system. Steering can be adjusted in a subtle manner to keep the vehicle in the center of a lane.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow: Maintain a proper set-following distance behind other cars on the highway. If the car in front slows to a stop, then this system will bring your Clarity Plug-In Hybrid to a stop, too. When you get going again, the car will continue maintaining the distance previously set.
Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid: Other Safety Features
The 2018 Honda Clarity is designed for safety, thanks to the ACE™ Body Structure. This body is integrated with the ultra-high-strength steel chassis for safety and crash protection.
The Honda LaneWatch™ system is another standout safety feature. Providing live video of the passenger-side roadway, you’ll be able to see what’s happening in your blind spot. Meanwhile, the auto-dimming rearview mirror works to adjust the way headlights reflect behind you, so it’s easier to focus on the road ahead.
