Performance and Capability
The Passport has a powerful i-VTEC® V6 engine that’s able to produce 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. It’ll take you way off the map, and with impressive fuel efficiency, you’ll be able to keep the adventure going. Standardly, the Passport gets an EPA-estimated 20 city/25 highway MPG.*
The Honda Passport has great capabilities that improve handling in both off- and on-road situations. The available all-wheel-drive system is designed to respond to the traction available in each wheel, giving it better grip in dirt and wet conditions, as well as advanced handling on dry roads. The 2019 Passport can even adapt to different roads with Intelligent Traction Management-with the simple push of a button, this SUV will adapt to snow, mud, or sand!
With this SUV, you can smoothly maneuver over everything from that parking lot speed bump to the mountain path up to your favorite campsite. The 4-wheel independent suspension offers a smooth, relaxed journey, even on bumpy roads.
Gearing Up with the Honda Passport
Whether you’re packing up for your next road trip or packing everything in for that weekend fishing adventure, this SUV has more than enough cargo space. There’s up to 50.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row, but should you need more room, the 60/40-split rear seatback will fold flat. All told, folding those down can almost double the cargo capacity to 100.7 cubic feet!
Feel free to bring along the kayak or a couple bikes-the Passport features roof rails! When they’re coupled with the Honda Genuine Accessory crossbars, they can support up to 165 pounds of gear.
There are even storage areas within the storage areas. If you lift up the floor panel in the rear, you’ll find compartments in which you can store emergency gear, tools, or anything else you can fit down there.
Stay Connected and Safe on Your Journey
The 2019 Honda Passport has a wide array of tech features that will not only give you peace of mind, but quality entertainment, too. With Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, you’ll be able to access your favorite apps and music from your compatible smartphone.
This vehicle also offers the Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™, which will keep you from getting lost as you wander. It features 3D renderings of terrain, buildings, and road signs, and it can even work when adventure takes you off the grid, as its map database is preloaded!
Honda Sensing ® comes standard on all Passport models. This suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies will help you stay alert behind the wheel and avoid collisions. These features include:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System™
- Road Departure Mitigation System
- Lane Keeping Assist System
