2020 Honda Clarity vs. Its Competition

2020 Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid
Bengt Halvorson Bengt Halvorson Senior Editor

If you’re good without a charge port, the Honda Insight and Accord Hybrid both used similar two-motor hybrid systems and yet are better-looking and probably more comfortable.

The Toyota Prius is one of the best at the hybrid game, but its appearance is polarizing and the plug-in Prime version has a much shorter (25-mile) plug-in range versus the Clarity Plug-In Hybrid.

The Hyundai Ioniq lineup includes Electric and Plug-In Hybrid models and is less expensive, albeit not as mature and refined in feel.
