The 2019 Honda Passport is Back - Here's What We Know

Honda Bringing Back the Passport

The Honda Passport is one of the top SUVs on the road and was recently unveiled at the 2018 Auto Show. The new model makes an excellent first impression with its rugged good looks and plenty of power that is packed under the hood. When you're looking to drive a new set of wheels, there are a few important facts to know about the 2019 Honda Passport.

It Features a Spacious Cabin

The interior of the new Honda Passport doesn't disappoint and features a spacious setting that seats up to five passengers. Plenty of head- and legroom is available, which allows tall passengers to sit comfortably in the back row. Inside, you'll find the same multimedia setup as the Honda Pilot with a 7-inch multimedia display screen on the dashboard, which can be customized. It even includes a gear-selector in the center of the car. Many different charging options are also available in the cabin with four USB ports in the Elite Trim. A household outlet is also offered in the second row for passengers to use to charge their laptops or game consoles.

The Exterior is Edgy

The two-row SUV is similar to a Honda Ridgeline and features a rear that looks similar to a Pilot. The exterior features LED headlights that look sleek and add a touch of elegance to the body. A large black grille adds a touch of masculinity that proves that the SUV is designed to tackle different types of terrain and do a bit of off-roading. The car is created to be a combination of the CR-V and the Pilot but has rugged features that allow it to take a few risks. The bumpers on the vehicle are also scratch-resistant for when you take the car off-roading to ensure that it maintains its matte finish.

The Performance is Competitive

Honda Passport

Front-wheel-drive comes standard on the new Honda Passport, but all-wheel-drive is also available for those who need more traction under the wheels. The vehicle proves to be capable off-road by sending 70 percent of available torque to the rear wheels and split it 100 percent to either the left or right wheel. The car proves to drive well on gravel or sand due to the all-wheel-drive system that does distribute torque around evenly. The vehicle is built with a 3.5-liter V6 that generates 280 horsepower and is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. It has the same set-up that you'll find in the Honda Pilot. Those who choose to upgrade to all-wheel-drive can tow up to 5,000 pounds, which offers more versatility with what you decide to haul on your next trip.

Plenty of Cargo Space

A significant amount of cargo space is available with useful features that include a storage compartment underneath the flooring, which makes it easy to keep certain items discrete. Two automatic buttons that are on the side of the car also make it easy to drop the second row without having to use any handles. The second row can also be folded down completely to transport muddy or wet items without having to create a mess on the cloth floors. The plastic material on the back of the seats is easy to wipe off. Roof racks that are included on the SUV also make it possible to transport additional sporting equipment or luggage.
