The Honda Passport was originally produced as a traditional midsize SUV from 1993 to 2002. And it’s making a comeback: this time, as a crossover vehicle. That means that it will exhibit attributes of the SUV and midsize sedan, combining ample interior space and all-weather driving performance with fuel efficiency and sturdy handling. Slotted between the compact-sized CR-V and the full-size Pilot, the debut year of the Passport’s reincarnation will be 2019. The brand-new Passport is split into four trims: Sport, EX-L, Touring, and Elite.

Powering the vehicle is a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. It is glued to a 9-speed automatic transmission, which helps fuel efficiency due to the considerably large number of gears. Although front-wheel drive is standard, Honda offers the choice of getting the Intelligent Variable Torque Management all-wheel-drive system to optimize performance—and thus confidence, as well—in driving on virtually any type of terrain or during less-than-ideal weather.
The 2019 Honda Passport has two rows of seats to accommodate up to five people. Even with 41.2 cubic feet of standard cargo space, Honda adds an underfloor storage area divided in plastic bins, and the second-row seats can be folded completely flat in a 60/40 configuration to expand the cargo space to 77.9 cubic feet. Front seating includes an 8-way power driver seat with lumbar support, and all trims except the base-level Sport get leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, power adjustability on the front passenger seat, front-seat heating ability, and a sunroof. Standard comfort and convenience features include tri-zone automatic climate control, a 7-inch TFT multi-information screen, two USB ports, 5-inch LCD screen, and a six-speaker stereo system. The EX-L trim is upgraded with an 8-inch touchscreen and smartphone integration via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The Touring and Elite get a Wi-Fi hotspot, 8-inch touchscreen navigation, and a 10-speaker stereo system.
Like some entries in Honda’s lineup, the 2019 Passport will have Honda Sensing, which is a driver-assist technology package that combines lane departure warning, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, forward collision braking, road departure mitigation, and collision mitigation braking. This is in addition to standard safety features such as a multi-angle rearview camera, automatic high beams, LED daytime running lights, an anti-lock braking system, vehicle stability assist with traction control, hill start assist, and at least six airbags. The EX-L trim and above also get a blind-spot monitor and cross-traffic alert.
