Honda Insight Vs. Honda Clarity
When it comes to producing hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles, Honda has recently been behind some of the most compelling designs and state-of-the-art engineering in the industry. Two vehicles that you’ve likely seen or heard about now perfectly exemplify this commitment to a future of cleaner transportation.
Both the Honda Clarity and the Honda Insight beckon drivers to experience a stylish, comfortable and accommodating ride that won’t cost them frequent trips to the gas pump. Since both are operating in the hybrid and alternative fuel vehicles segment, however, you may have questions as to their differences and similarities.
Let’s compare the two models!
What is the Honda Clarity?
The Honda Clarity is a midsize sedan that takes advantage of a partially- or fully-electrified powertrain. Available in PHEV (plug-in hybrid), fuel cell or EV (fully electric) variants, the 2018 Honda Clarity is similar in size to the 2017 Honda Accord (with only an inch less on the wheelbase). The Clarity also features a design that is seemingly inspired by its futuristic powertrain.
What is the Honda Insight?
The 2019 Honda Insight, on the other hand, is a gasoline-electric hybrid vehicle that uses a tandem motor to get the most power and range out of every drop of gasoline you put in. Recycling the name Insight from the subcompact hybrid, the new Insight is much closer in size to the Honda Civic than it is to the Accord.
With its narrow headlights, sloping grille and striking rearward contours, however, the 2019 Honda Insight seemingly pulls more design inspiration from the 2018 Honda Accord.
Should I Get the Honda Insight or Honda Clarity?
Both the Honda Insight and Honda Clarity are reliable and attractive cars that promise affordable transportation and plenty of interior technology. If you’re the type who lines up for the next iPhone and considers themselves to be an “early adopter,” the futuristic design and cutting-edge powertrain options of the Honda Clarity would be an appropriate choice.
However, if you’re looking for a hybrid that exudes sophistication and elegance, the 2019 Honda Insight brings that to the table without killing your fuel budget.
