Expert Rating

3.0 (Good)

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Buying Tips

What you must know before buying the Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid

Justin Cupler
Automotive Editor - November 6, 2019
  • 2019 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is available
  • Up to $4,000 off (select states)
  • Finance: No financing deals
  • Lease: From $389/mo. (select states)

Primarily stocked in California:

The carryover 2019 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is in showrooms and has a few offers, but they are not enough to overcome its high pricing. Stock is limited, but the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is easiest to find in California. You can get it in other states, but you may need to special order it.

Unlike the 89-mile Clarity Electric, which is only available to lease, buyers can purchase the plug-in hybrid from $34,330. It's not the cheapest plug-in, but you get built-in tech like automatic emergency braking at no extra charge.

Current offers are available regionally and end January 2, 2020. The deals listed here are available in California and other zero-emissions states as mentioned. Honda may reveal some special offers for Black Friday, so stay tuned for potential changes in the coming weeks.

Unadvertised incentive remains:

The 2019 Clarity Plug-In benefits from a $4,000 unadvertised incentive in California and other zero-emission states. Honda passes incentives like this to its dealerships to do with as they please. They can pass it on to buyers to reduce pricing or pocket it for added profit. Because of this uncertainty, shop around for the best deals.

This offer is on top of any other federal or state credits for buying a plug-in vehicle.

No APR offers:

Honda cut all its APR offers on the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid in April, and they remain gone in November. Check with your local dealership to see its financing deals.

Lease from $389 per month:

Honda offers promotional lease offers on the 2019 Clarity Plug-In Hybrid in zero-emission states only. The base 2019 Clarity's 36-month lease offer runs for $389 per month with $2,999 due at signing.

With an effective monthly cost of $472, this is not a good value for its $34,330 MSRP.

The Touring trim is an extra $40 per month and requires $3,799 down. This adds up to a $535 monthly effective cost, making it a bad value relative to its MSRP.

There are no promotional lease deals listed in non-zero-emissions states.

The Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid is available in all 50 states (and Canada), unlike its Clarity Fuel Cell and Clarity Electric brethren. Positioned as a five-passenger sedan with a wind-tunnel-shaped exterior and an efficient and flexible powertrain, the 2019 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid also has the technology and modern touches that further add to its sense of value.

What's New for 2019

The Honda Clarity Plug-In was new for 2018 and receives no notable updates for 2019.

Choosing Your Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid

The Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid uses a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor. Together, they generate 212 horsepower and, most importantly, deliver an EPA-estimated 47 miles of all-electric range. Fuel economy comes in at 42 miles per gallon combined, or 110 miles per gallon of gasoline equivalent (MPGe) combined.

The 17-kwh lithuium-ion batter pack is Level 1 and Level 2 charging compatible. Selectable configurations for EV-only, battery recharge, and even a sport mode allow the driver to prepare the car for what’s ahead.

Inside the aero-smooth exterior is a roomy five-passenger interior and a trunk large enough for four golf bags while the rear seats fold flat for long items. Extensive use of light-weight materials and new production techniques help keep the car’s weight to nearly 4,000 pound. That figure includes noise-isolating parts such as liquid filled rear suspension bushings, liberal use of sound insulation mats, and acoustically laminated front windows and windshield.

The four-wheel independent suspension features amplitude reactive dampers and is tuned for a smooth but controlled ride, which is further aided by the battery pack’s low center.

There are two trim levels offered:

Base

The base trim of the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid costs $34,320 (all prices include the $920 destination fee) and includes a comprehensive list of features such as LED exterior lighting, adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitoring, lane keeping assist, and 18-inch wheels.

Proximity entry opens way to a cloth interior with heated front seats, dual-zone climate control, and an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen that sits floating in the center of the instrument panel. It connects with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM, HD Radio, Bluetooth, and USB, and puts the sound out through an eight-speaker audio system.

While there are six exterior colors from which to choose, there are no option packages available.

Touring

The Touring Trim is priced at $37,520 and adds perforated leather seats, an eight-way power driver's seat with two-position memory, a four-way power passenger seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, voice recognition, and Honda’s satellite-linked navigation system. Additionally, Touring buyers can preset temperature before a drive via the HondaLink app on their smartphone. There are no option packages available for the Touring trim.

CarsDirect Tip

There's no mistaking the mission of the 2019 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid. Until re-charging times decrease and the fast-charging network expands, gasoline is the practical choice of energy for long trips. Yet, typical weekday work commutes fall easily within the range of lighter and less expensive batteries, making the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid one of the most practical and efficient vehicles available. The base trim level is well equipped, leaving few reasons to upgrade to the Touring.
