Honda rolled out the Passport last year as its entry in the market for mid-size crossover SUVs with five seats. It’s larger than the CR-V, but lacks the third row that differentiates the larger Pilot. For its second year in showrooms, the Passport returns with no notable changes.
Passport trim levels are Sport, EX-L and Touring. All share a 3.5L V6 engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission, and AWD.
Sport trim’s exterior comes dressed with 20-inch wheels, LED headlights and taillights, a front wiper de-icer, and roof rails.
Passport’s cabin comes with a sunroof, ambient lighting, active noise cancellation, auto-dimming rearview mirror, 7.0-inch gauge cluster display, intelligent passive keyless entry, tri-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats and steering wheel, 10-way power driver’s seat, a seven-speaker stereo, and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto.
Passport Sport’s safety package comprises forward collision warning with automatic braking, tire pressure monitoring, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams and the LaneWatch blind spot camera display.
EX-L brings tilt-down-in-reverse side mirrors, a power tailgate, parking proximity sensors (front and rear), heated rear seats, leather seating, a power front passenger seat, and satellite radio.
Touring adds blind spot monitoring/rear cross traffic alert, auto-leveling headlights, auto-dimming/power-folding side mirrors, hands-free tailgate, rain-sensing wipers, 115-volt power outlet, navigation, wireless smartphone charging, ventilated front seats, and a 10-speaker stereo.
Honda’s fuel consumption estimates are 12.5/9.8 L/100 km (city/highway).
