Safety Features of the 2018Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid

If you’ve been hoping to upgrade to a new Hybrid car this year, look no further! For safe driving in all road and weather conditions, Michigan’s drivers will love the safety features of the celebrated 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid. According to the writers at Kelley Blue Book*, this new model is the year’s Best Buy in the Hybrid/Electric segment, and once you’ve seen the Honda Clarity’s safety features, you’ll clearly understand why. The vehicles in Honda’s hybrid lineup have already earned a great reputation for making high-end safety technologies more available to Hybrid drivers on a budget, and the same can certainly be said for the Clarity PHEV. Top-tier Driver-Assistive, Active, and Passive safety features come standard in this model’s baseline trim, priced at $33,400 MSRP**.

Honda Sensing

The Honda Sensing safety package includes a selection of incredibly powerful technologies to keep you safe from harm. These Driver-Assistive technologies and Active safety features will give you peace of mind on Michigan roads.

2018 Honda Clarity Safety

Collision Mitigation Braking: The Clarity uses a system of cameras and sensors to protect you from dangerous frontal collisions. If an object is detected in your field of view, the Forward Collision Warning (FCW) will alert you to the danger and the Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) will bring you to a complete halt if necessary.

Lane Keeping Assistance: The Clarity makes it easy to stay centered in your lane of choice. The Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system beeps to warn you if you’re moving toward a dividing line with an inactive turn signal, while the Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS) and Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM) gently nudge you away from the edges of your lane.

Adaptive Cruise Control: Cruise Control just became a lot more enjoyable to use! Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) takes into account your preferred speed and follow distance and uses this information to keep you moving with the flow of traffic.

Active and Driver-Assistive Features

Staying one step ahead of danger on the road is no simple task, but with the Honda Clarity’s Active and Driver Assistive safety features at your disposal, you’ll rarely be caught by surprise.

  • Honda LaneWatch: The LaneWatch camera system lets you check your blind spot by activating your righthand turn signal. When this happens, a live feed will be directed to a centrally located screen. With this feature, you won’t have to turn in your seat to make sure you’re free to change lanes.

  • Vehicle Stability Assist: Each of the Honda Clarity PHEV’s wheels is able to function in relative independence from one another, and with Vehicle Stability Assistance and Traction Control, the Clarity will direct its power to the locations where it’s needed most. You’ll notice significant improvements in handling and control.

  • LED Daytime Running Lights: It’s always a good practice to improve your visibility, and once you’ve driven with these LED Daytime Running Lights, you’ll notice the difference in other vehicles on the road. These lights, as well as the Clarity’s nighttime headlights, turn on and off automatically.

Dependable Passive Safety Technology

All drivers want to know if their vehicle can safely stand up to sudden pressure. The Clarity Plug-In Hybrid’s Active and Driver-Assistive safety technologies complement a commendable array of passive safety features, components that work to limit the danger of crashes and keep passengers out of harm’s way.

  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering: Certain sections of the Clarity’s body have been built to collapse in the event of a collision, while others have been designed to remain rigid. This clever combination is known as ACE, or Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure. Passengers will be better protected as the collapsing segments absorb the most dangerous collision forces.

  • All-Around Airbag Coverage: Four sets of airbags keep Clarity passengers protected from all angles. The Clarity’s baseline trim includes Advanced Front Airbags, a Driver’s Knee Airbag, SmartVent Front Side Airbags, and Side Curtain Airbags with a Rollover Sensor.

  • Seat-Belts: Every Clarity PHEV has been equipped with Driver’s and Front Passenger’s Seat-Belt Reminders, Automatic Tensioning for front-seated passengers, and universal three-point seat-belts for all seating positions. A built-in LATCH system—short for Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children—also comes standard.
