The new Honda Passport is added to the mix to give us a two-row/five-passenger SUV that fits perfectly between the CR-V and the Pilot.
When you look at the Honda SUV lineup, you might notice that something is missing from what you can have when it’s time for a great drive. This means you’re going to have more room for your legs in the rear seat and have additional space for cargo that you need to take with you when you head out for some fun in the Passport.
The Honda Passport Adventure Awaits
Until now, the only model in the Honda lineup that even hinted at adventure is the Ridgeline. Now we have a new model that offers the adventure and fun that we want to experience when heading out for some fun. The Honda Passport has the ability to take you off the roads and out for a ride where you can have some fun. You’ll love the roomy area where you can fit most of your gear and the AWD system that makes this SUV capable and fun wherever you want to go.
The Drive that Gives You Confidence from Honda
The Honda Passport is equipped with a spacious and reinforced unibody construction that allows you to have the feeling you want when obstacles are in your way. This body rides on a platform that makes use of a sophisticated torque-vectoring AWD system that has four modes of intelligent traction handling to give you the ability to choose the terrain and allow the Passport to give you the drive that makes the most sense for your experience. Not only does this make the Passport a competent off-roader, but it also allows the SUV to handle foul weather with dominance as well.
Choose the Features for Your Ride
Standard Honda Passport Driving Includes…
When you choose the 2019 Honda Passport you’ll find the Honda Sensing suite of active safety features, 20-inch wheels, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and much more. These items all come standard on the base Sport trim of the Passport. The wheels are a nice touch because you normally have to move up a few trim levels to have wheels of this size on a midsize SUV, but the Passport starts with these massive feet to give you the ground clearance and ride you’re looking for from this SUV.
Add More to the Mix
The options you’re going to find include AWD which is optional on all trims except the Elite which is a trim that gives you this feature as a standard item. Other items you can enjoy in the Honda Passport include interior storage bins, a towing package, a power tailgate with hands-free operation, a moonroof, a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, rain-sensing wipers, wireless phone charging, a navigation system, and a premium audio system. Figure out which trim has the package of features that you want to have in the Passport and you’ll be ready to have a great drive.
The Powertrain You Need from Honda
Every version of the 2019 Honda Passport is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes 280 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine uses direct injection and it’s attached to a nine-speed automatic transmission to give you the driving feeling you’re looking for when you head out in the Passport. The FWD models of this SUV will give you 20 city/25 hwy mpg but the AWD models will bring you 19 city/24 hwy mpg to make sure you have reasonable fuel mileage for the drive you’ll experience in the Passport.
