New for 2019

The Honda Passport is all-new for 2019.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The Passport is a five-seat SUV that slots between the CR-V and Pilot in the Honda lineup.

2019 Passport Sport: The entry-level Passport comes with 20-inch aluminum wheels, a seven-speaker audio system controlled by a 5.0-inch display, Honda Sensing, a 9-speed automatic transmission with auto stop/start, LED low-beam headlights, fog lights, taillights and DRLs, push-button start with hands-free keyless access, two USB ports, and three-zone automatic climate control.

2019 Passport EX-L: Move up to the EX-L to get a leather-trimmed steering wheel and seats, an 8.0-inch touchscreen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, remote power-operated liftgate, power moonroof, heated mirrors, and an 8-way power driver's seat.

2019 Passport Touring: Opt for the Touring trim for LED high-and low-beam headlights, a foot-activated hands-free liftgate, parking sensors, satellite navigation, and a 10-speaker audio system.

2019 Passport Elite: The top-trim level of the Passport comes standard with all-wheel drive, ventilated front seats, auto-dimming side mirrors, rain-sensing wipers, heated steering wheel, and a wireless charging pad.

Performance and Fuel Economy

All Passports come standard with Honda's ubiquitous 3.5-liter V-6, making 280-hp and 262 lb-ft. Standard on the Elite (and optional on all other trim levels) is a front-to-rear and side-to-side torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system, featuring snow, mud, and sand-optimized traction modes in addition to the normal traction setting. Front-wheel drive models net 20/25 mpg city/highway, while all-wheel drive takes each rating down a notch to 19/24 mpg.

Safety

Honda Sensing is standard on all trim levels. This safety suite includes automatic emergency braking technology along with forward collision warnings and pedestrian detection, adaptive cruise control, lane departure and road departure assist systems, and auto high beams.

Utility (Cargo Space and Interior Room)

Unlike the three-row seat Pilot on which it's based, the shorter Passport is only available with two rows and accommodates five passengers. The tradeoff is commodious cargo space, with 41.2 cubic feet available behind the rear seats, and 77.9 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down. An additional 2.5 cubic feet of space is available underneath the cargo floor cover. Front- and rear-seat legroom measures at 40.9 and 39.6 inches, respectively.

Technology

The 2019 Passport Sport models come standard with a 7-speaker audio system, accessible through a 5.0-inch screen in the center console. EX-L models and higher feature an 8.0-inch touchscreen, as well as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Touring and Elite models add satellite navigation and a 10-speaker audio system. In all Passports, the instrument panel features a 7.0-inch configurable screen, flanked by physical gauges for temperature on the left and fuel on the right.

What We Think

In our First Drive of the Honda Passport, we took note of its "adventure-ready spirit," thanks to its trim dimensions and a curb weight about 100 pounds less than the larger Pilot. The lighter weight also contributed to a "sportier" demeanor. "Step on the throttle…and your back is pushed against the seatback." But check that price: buyers would be smart to compare features when cross-shopping, as the "Passport isn't the most affordable model in the segment."

In a comparison against the 2019 Chevrolet Blazer, the Passport finished second. We appreciated that the Honda focused on providing lots of space for your family and their stuff, but noted that "these vehicles serve as work-commuters, too, and here Chevy pays more attention to the driver. Besides, when hauling the whole family, everyone benefits from powertrain refinement and sound deadening."
