The 2019 Honda Passport is the brand’s newest entry in the SUV segment. This model sits between the compact CR-V and the three-row Pilot in the Honda vehicle lineup, offering seating for five passengers, ample cargo space, and a ruggedly handsome design that is off-road capable.
Honda’s rugged side
The Passport is made for those who live an outdoor lifestyle, and its exterior reflects this. An athletic silhouette complements its sculpted body lines to give Honda’s newest SUV a sharp rough look. The unibody SUV has increased ground clearance and departure angles, which make it suitable for off-roading. Other exterior features make it an outdoorsy appeal, including its standard 20-inch wheels, a scratch-resistant matte-finish grille, and blackout headlights.
A Peaceful Cabin
Though the Passport is rugged on the outside, its interior reflects a sophisticated style. Plush seating, soft-touch materials, and a simple, elegant dashboard design come together to provide a comfortable cabin. On the Sport trim level, you find durable cloth upholstery, while the EX-L, Touring, and Elite trims offer perforated leather.
Behind the rear seats, you discover a generous cargo area that offers 41.2 cubic feet of cargo space. The second-row seats fold flat at the push of a button, allowing the Passport’s cargo capacity to extend to 77.9 cubic feet. This SUV’s main cargo floor even offers a smart underfloor cargo area to help you access 2.5 cubic feet of extra space. This underfloor storage comes with removable, washable bins that will allow you to keep your belongings all in one place.
Ready for Adventure
Along with an adventure-ready cabin, the 2019 Passport also offers perky performance. The standard 3.5-liter V6 engine pumps out 280 horsepower while running on a nine-speed automatic. If you’re planning on heading off-road, the Intelligent Variable Torque Management all-wheel-drive system will enhance your traction. With this powertrain, tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped.
