I rather like the exterior design elements of the Clarity!!
I am not sure what's conventional or not conventional in car design, but I thought the placement of the air vents along the sides took a bit of boldness, as well as the streamlining around the rear tires, and the placement of those daytime led lights in such severely straight line segments. But I have grown used to them. In fact, I now look at other cars and am disappointed at seeing their naked exposed rear wheels and thinking: how ordinary 😏.
It does appear that Honda is moving to more conventional designs in future Clarity offerings. However this may well distinguish the 2018 Clarity as a future collector's item, so I plan to keep mine in good shape. ☺️
