Specs at a Glance

If you want an SUV that stands out from the pack, the 2021 Honda Passport is an excellent choice. The Passport excels in its class as a popular model among midsize SUVs. The Passport checks off all the boxes in performance, appearance, style, and amenities. The 2021 Passport lineup consists of four trim levels, ranging from the entry Sport trim to the Elite, equipped with even more high-end components such as wireless phone charging and several safety aids. The Sport also has much to enjoy with a respectable list of features that now includes Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. An eight-inch infotainment system is another new amenity for the Sport this year.


While the Sport and Elite trims of the Passport vary in their amenities, the performance characteristics for both are mostly the same. They both come with a nine-speed shiftable automatic transmission. The two trims are powered by the same V6 engine that has a 3.5L displacement. The Passport's engine generates 280 HP at 6,000 RPM and 262 LB-FT of torque. The Luxury trim has standard front-wheel drive, while all-wheel drive is available. The Elite trim, however, gets standard all-wheel drive. The Passport has a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds with front-wheel drive and 5,000 pounds with all-wheel drive.


Both the Sport and Elite trims of the Honda Passport have stylish, eye-catching exteriors. The Honda Passport has 20-inch wheels at the base level, finished with attractive alloy. It also has LED headlights with automatic high beams. Fog lights are included in the Sport as well. With the Elite trim, you will also get roof rails and heated power-folding side mirrors. Dual exhaust finishers and rear privacy glass are also standard exterior components for the Sport and Elite trim levels.


In 2021, the base trim offers even more value with now-standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay that come with the new eight-inch interface. The base trim has a smart entry system and push-button start. You'll get cloth upholstery with the Sport and leather-trimmed seats with the Elite. The Elite adds some additional interior creature comforts, including a wireless phone charging pad, heated and ventilated front seats, and a heated steering wheel. Both trims have some standard safety aids, while the Elite gains parking sensors and a blind spot information system.
