Safety Features of the 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid

Great fuel economy and performance aren’t the only qualities that Detroit’s drivers are hoping to find in a hybrid car. Most of our friends and neighbors also understand the importance of high-tech, dependable safety features, and those who do know that Honda’s hybrid lineup is the best place to find them. The 2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is the latest to arrive at dealerships across Detroit, and already, it’s making waves across the state. The Honda Clarity’s safety features give it a clear edge in an increasingly crowded hybrid market, and according to the experts at Kelley Blue Book, it’s one of the segment’s best buys.

2018 Honda Clarity Plug-In

Active Crash Prevention and Honda Sensing Technologies

With the Honda Sensing safety package—a standard feature on both Clarity Plug-In Hybrid trims—the onboard computer will automatically work to prevent collisions, keep you in your lane, and make every drive more convenient. Its additional active safety features respond to your behavior, or to changes in road conditions, in order to maximize your control behind the wheel.

  • Braking Aids: Every Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid comes equipped with an Anti-Lock Braking System, Electronic Brake Distribution, and Brake Assist technology. You’ll also be able to take advantage of the Honda Sensing package’s Forward Collision Warning (FCW) and Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), which can bring the Clarity to a complete stop in an emergency.
  • Lane Keeping Assistance: The Honda Sensing package includes a Lane Departure Warning (LDW), Road Departure Mitigation (RDM), and a Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS). LDW beeps to alert you if you’re moving out of your lane without signaling, while RDM and LKAS keep you centered in your lane of choice.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control: After you’ve entered your preferred speed Adaptive Cruise Control will automatically keep your vehicle moving with the flow of traffic. You’ll be able to enter your preferred follow distance using the Low Speed Follow feature.

Visibility and Security

The safety experts at Honda know that superior visibility is the best defense against surprises and accidents on the road, and they’ve equipped the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid with technologies that can provide a complete picture of your surroundings. As drivers will quickly realize, these form the perfect complement to the automated features detailed above.

  • LED Daytime Running Lights: Daytime Running Headlights ensure that you always enjoy superior visibility. Both these and the Clarity’s nighttime headlights turn on and off automatically, responding to the situation at hand.
  • Honda LaneWatch: In most cars, checking your periphery can be distracting. In order to mitigate this danger, the LaneWatch safety system shows you a live feed of your blind spot whenever you engage your right-hand turn signal.
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera: Every Clarity comes equipped with Multi-Angle Rearview Camera, and Dynamic Guidelines have been included, standard. You’ll be able to take advantage of Wide Angle, Normal, and Top Down views, and these Dynamic Guidelines move as you turn as your steering wheel.

Withstanding Collisions

Although the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid comes equipped with many of the most advanced crash-prevention technologies available today, the engineers and designers at Honda haven’t left anything to chance. The following features provide greater protection for the Clarity’s passengers in the event of an unavoidable collision.

  • Advanced Compatibility Engineering: Honda’s engineers have sought to minimize the danger of collisions by manufacturing every Clarity with Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE). ACE is a composition of rigid and collapsible sections, and because the latter are the first to be impacted by the forces produced in a crash, the cabin becomes safer.
  • Universal Three-Point Seatbelts: Every seat in the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid has been equipped with a Three-Point Seat Seatbelt, and those in the first row offer both Automatic Tensioning and Automatic Reminders. The back seats have been equipped with a fully-functional LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children), and every passenger has access to a headrest.
  • All-Around Airbag Protection: Passengers in the Clarity are protected by four sets of airbags. These include Advanced Front Airbags, a Driver’s Knee Airbag, SmartVent Front Side Airbags, and Side Curtain Airbags with a Rollover Sensor.
