Mark your calendars: The all-new 2019 Honda Passport goes on sale early next year. This five-passenger, V6-powered SUV provides a unique combination of on-road driving refinement and off-road adventure capability along with best-in-class interior space.
The Passport will slot between the compact CR-V and three-row Pilot in Honda’s award-winning SUV lineup. The model’s reinforced unibody frame, powerful, direct-injected i-VTEC V6 engine, fully independent suspension and nimble steering make it an ideal choice for driving long distances or around town.
Inside, the Passport offers best-in-class passenger space (115.9 cu.-ft.) and total interior volume (157.1 cu.-ft.) for carrying family, friends, and weekend adventure gear. Passport features a large (best-in-class 2.5 cu.-ft.) segmented underfloor cargo compartment.
Passport will be offered in four trims: the well-appointed Sport, upgraded EX-L, high-tech Touring, and the fully equipped Elite. All trims will feature 20-inch alloy wheels and tires, the Honda Sensing suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technology, LED headlights, fog lights, taillights and DRLs, Smart Start and Smart Entry, and three-zone automatic climate control.
Additional exterior upgrades, depending on trim, include a power tailgate with available hands-free operation, a one-touch tilt/slide moonroof and heated auto-dimming and power folding side mirrors. Plus, the blind spot information system, rear cross traffic monitor, and front and rear parking sensors are available driver assistive technologies. Available premium features include second-row sunshades, wireless phone charging, embedded Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System, 4G LTE in-vehicle Wi-Fi, premium audio, and HondaLink cloud-based services, including remote unlocking, concierge services, stolen vehicle tracking, and more.
