2019 Honda Clarity vs. Its Competition

2019 Honda Clarity
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

Efficiency-focused buyers have better options without leaving the Honda dealer lot.

The Insight and Accord both use similar two-motor hybrid systems that are related to the Clarity and are more comfortable and better looking, although the Insight and Accord lack plugs.

The Toyota Prius is the other hybrid that looks like no other, but its plug-in range is shorter.

The Chevy Volt is on its way out, and we liked its plug-in powertrain; discounts may be plentiful while supplies last.

The Hyundai Ioniq is less expensive, and perhaps more practical, but not as refined.
