2020 Touring features

In case anyone is interested, here is the "Window Sticker" from the 2020 Touring. I've heard conflicting thing about whether the heated mirrors that got introduced on FCV version made it into the PHEV. Well, this sticker answered it conclusively. It did.


Another week or so<g>.

Our 2018 Electric has heated mirrors. I guess I thought the Touring always did on the PHEV as well.

Our 2018 Touring has heated mirrors. They activate with the rear window defroster.

Oh, O.K. I never saw it listed on the feature list so I assumed it was not included. Good to see it has always been there.

Early press releases about the 2020's listed the AVAS as a new feature - but they ALL come with AVAS. So I guess we'll have to wait to see if there's a different AVAS sound used or if it's just a case of "creative repackaging".

New federal regulations required a new AVAS in order to comply

So far the only major difference i can see on the 2020 vs my 2018 touring is you get to choose rims from the aerodynamic to the other set.. id love to see the skirt go away

There have to be more differences, right?

It says it has a Tire Pressure Monitoring System. I'm trying to remember if the 2018 Touring that I have said that too. Considering what other cars have, this is the least sophisticated version I've seen. It doesn't actually give you a readout of the tire pressure. If it is low, a warning comes on. If you refill it, the warning doesn't go off! You have to manually reset it. That's from the dealer.

Pro and con with the TPMS system that Clarity uses. It does not measure pressure directly with pressure sensors located inside the tire, instead it monitors the rotation of the tires and determines if a change has occurred that could be caused by low tire pressure. Although this doesn't give you the details like which tire is low and what the individual pressures are. However the big plus is that you don't have to deal with pressure sensors failing or worry about tire shops damaging them.

To get actual pressure readings you have to get aftermarket sensors, the kind that screw onto the valve stem.

You should only have to recalibrate if you change your tire pressures, you shouldn't have to recalibrate if you have filled back up to the previous level. Not sure why you had to on yours. Then again I have never had the TPMS warning come on so I can't say from experience what happens.
