Introduced in 2019, the Passport is Honda’s relatively late entry in the mid-size, five-seat crossover segment. While it has a lot in common with the larger three-row Pilot, the Passport is set apart with blockier, SUV-like styling.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
The 2023 Honda Passport is unchanged following last year’s mid-cycle refresh, which included the addition of a rugged TrailSport trim level.
Honda offers the Passport in Sport, TrailSport, and Touring trim levels. Power is from a 3.5L V6 engine with cylinder deactivation, a nine-speed transmission, and all-wheel drive.
Sport trim starts out with auto on/off LED headlights, LED fog lights, a front wiper de-icer, a sunroof, power tailgate, and passive keyless entry. Inside, there’s active noise cancellation, ambient lighting, a digital gauge display, three-zone A/C, a power driver’s seat, heated front seats and steering wheel, and seven-speaker audio.
TrailSport gets a 115-volt power outlet, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, front and rear parking sensors, wireless phone charging, heated rear seats, leather upholstery, and a power passenger seat.
Touring adds auto-dimming/power-folding side mirrors, a hands-free tailgate, rain-sensing wipers, navigation, ventilated front seats, and 10-speaker audio.
Forward collision mitigation, lane departure warning/lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert are all standard in every Passport trim.
Honda’s fuel consumption estimates are 12.5/9.8 L/100 km (city/highway).
