In a time of self-driving cars and advanced safety technologies, automakers must focus on innovation – and that’s exactly what Honda does. That’s why it comes as no surprise that two Honda vehicles recently earned honors during the 2018 Edmunds CES Tech Driven Awards.
The 2018 Honda CR-V and the all-new Honda Clarity, both of which are available at Don Wessel Honda, earned the titles as the Most Innovative SUV and the Car of the Year, respectively.
Edmunds.com’s editors praised the Clarity for its electrified powertrain technology, stating that “the 2018 Honda Clarity provides unmatched flexibility when it comes to alternative fuel choices.” With powertrain options that include pure electric, plug-in hybrid, and hydrogen fuel cell, there is a Clarity to match your lifestyle no matter what your engine preference is. The editors also commented on the vehicle’s innovative design, which the editors claim, “can push the industry further toward a future using renewable energy.”
The Honda CR-V was praised for a number of assets, including its stylish exterior, efficiency, and innovative technology. These editors said, “the 2018 Honda CR-V offers advanced driver assistance technologies and active safety features at an affordable price, a rarity among SUVs.” This advanced tech, combined with a great ride, class-leading fuel economy ratings, and a clever storage area made the Honda CR-V a winner.
