Honda Sensing is a suite of driver-assistive technology that allows drivers to see more, do more, and drive more safely on the road. Standard on both trim levels of the Clarity Plug-In, the package includes warning, prevention, and mitigation systems such as:
Forward Collision Warning – Sensors detect when the Clarity is dangerously approaching an oncoming vehicle or other object and warns the driver to take immediate action.
Lane Departure Warning – If the Clarity veers or sways out of its lane on the highway, this system issues a warning for the driver to correct the steering.
Collision Mitigation Braking System – This system can engage the brakes of the Clarity in order to mitigate any impact.
Road Departure Mitigation System – If the Clarity rolls over lane lines or road markings, this system engages the brakes and steering to prevent it from going off the road.
Lane Keeping Assist System – If the Clarity veers out of its lane on the road without a signal change, this system nudges the steering wheel to bring the Clarity back into the center of the lane.
Adaptive Cruise Control with Low-Speed Follow – Drivers select the desired speed and distance interval with the vehicle ahead and this system adjusts to changes in the traffic flow automatically.
For drivers who are looking for more features than the entry-level offerings, including touches of luxury inside the cabin, the Touring trim level is the one to consider. It includes additions, edits, and upgrades to the standard equipment with features such as:
Leather-Wrapped Steering Wheel
Driver’s Seat with 8-Way Power Adjustment and Two-Position Memory
