2020 Honda Clarity Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 6.6

 The 2020 Honda Clarity has an upscale and quiet interior with roomy seating in both rows. Its trunk is reasonably spacious too. The biggest issue is the infotainment system’s lack of knobs and physical buttons, making it awkward to adjust the audio settings while driving.

  • "Yet as is appropriate for a car with advanced powertrains, it also looks futuristic. Excellent fit/finish is a given with most Hondas, and the Clarity adds Acura-grade materials such as soft perforated leather, simulated suede on the dashboard, and dark matte-finish wood-tone trim on the center console." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "One area of frustration is infotainment. The Clarity has the Civic's touchscreen, which irritates with slow responses, convoluted menus and a lack of supporting buttons and knobs. The CR-V and Accord have updated and superior infotainment interfaces, and we think the pricey Clarity should, too." -- Autotrader (2019)
  • "Entering the Clarity feels like stepping into a technologically advanced Accord. Thus, it's spacious, easy to see out of, and comes with material quality and fit and finish close to Acura territory." -- Automobile Magazine (2018)

Seating

The Honda Clarity has five seats. The seats are comfy, and there’s sufficient head- and legroom for adults in both rows. Cloth upholstery and heated front seats are standard. Leather upholstery and power-adjustable front seats are available.

For securing child safety seats, the Clarity has two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats.

  • "A back-to-back drive in the Clarity Plug-in and the Prius Prime (or most other plug-in hybrids) will reveal a car that's far more civilized. There's less road and wind noise, the engine is quieter when it kicks in, the ride is more comfortable and the cabin has superior materials and a richer vibe. It also can legitimately seat five people, unlike the Prius Prime and the Chevy Volt, making it a more viable choice for family use." -- Autotrader (2019)
  • "There is humongous room, with seating for five full-size people in two rows. … There's even headroom in back for full-size adults." -- Autoweek (2018)
  • "We give the Clarity's front seats high marks for offering excellent comfort and support. There's also plenty of head, shoulder and leg room for front-seat passenger[s]. The rear bench offers good legroom for outboard passengers, but headroom can be tight for those over six-feet-tall." -- Left Lane News (2018)

Interior Features

The Honda Clarity comes standard with an 8-inch touch screen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Bluetooth, two USB ports, HD Radio, satellite radio, eight speakers, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, and dual-zone automatic climate control. Navigation is available. A head-up display and a 12-speaker stereo are exclusive to Clarity Fuel Cell models.

The Clarity’s touch screen isn’t very user-friendly. The screen tends to respond slowly to inputs, and its menu structure is confusing. The screen is accompanied by touch-sensitive buttons that can be quite distracting to use while driving.

Standard safety features include a rearview camera, a passenger-side blind spot camera, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and lane keep assist. Rear parking sensors are available.

  • "Adding to the interior’s Tomorrowland look and feel, a row of buttons for Reverse, Drive and Neutral run down the center of the console, replacing a traditional gear selector. The flat touch-screen infotainment display further lends the cabin a modern appearance, though user-friendliness is compromised." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "While the 8-inch touchscreen is sizable, its interface needs work. Basic functions are hard to use when moving. The graphics are a bit old-school, and the screen flow could be quicker. The menu structure is reasonably straightforward, but touch targets are small and the volume slider is irritating." -- Edmunds (2019)
  • "The 8-inch touchscreen in the Clarity offers good resolution, be [sic] we found it to be a little laggy in operation with a split-second delay between our input and the system responding." -- Left Lane News (2018)

Cargo

The Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid has a 15.5-cubic-foot trunk. That’s about average for sedans in the hybrid and electric car class, but it’s less than what hatchbacks like the Toyota Prius, Hyundai Ioniq, and Chevy Bolt offer. The Clarity Fuel Cell offers just 11.8 cubic feet of trunk space.

  • "The Clarity Plug-in is the most commodious when it comes to cargo, supplying 15.5 cubic feet of space. A 60/40-split-folding rear seat expands that cargo capacity when necessary. Clarity Fuel Cell models can carry just 11.8 cubic feet of cargo, and you can’t fold this version’s back seat down. This design is necessary to accommodate the hydrogen fuel-tank housing." -- Kelley Blue Book
  • "The fact that the Plug-in has a trunk rather than a hatchback like most other plug-ins reduces versatility somewhat, but the tall trunk height and ample width make it quite functional. The rising, stage-like portion closest to the back seat reduces space, but the deep covered well in the aft portion makes up for this somewhat." -- Autotrader (2019)
  • "Trunk space is good at 15.5 cubic feet, but that trails the cargo room offered by the Prius Prime." -- Left Lane News (2018)
