About the All-New 2019 Honda Passport

The newest addition to the growing family of Honda SUVs and crossovers, the all-new 2019 Honda Passport delivers a unique blend of on-road driving refinement and off-road adventure capability in addition to best-in-class interior space. Slotting between the compact CR-V and three-row Pilot, the Honda Passport features reinforced unibody frame, powerful direct-injected i-VTEC® V6 engine, and fully independent suspension. Tackle the kind of tough terrain normally reserved for less refined body-on-frame or off-road focused SUVs with the available Honda i-VTM4™ torque-vectoring all-wheel drive and its four-mode Intelligent Traction Management system offered on the Passport. At launch, the Passport will be offered in four trims: the well-appointed Sport, upgraded EX-L, high-tech Touring, and the fully equipped Elite. The Honda Passport is expected to debut in mid-2019.

What the Critics Say

With a rugged design, seating for five, and more ground clearance than the Pilot or CR-V, the 2019 Honda Passport brings more than a touch of adventure to the automaker’s lineup. Honda’s new SUV shares its chassis, engine, AWD system, and transmission with the three-row Pilot, and it has nothing to do with the Passport SUV from the late ’90s.” — Motor Trend
What the new Passport resembles is a stubbier and sharper Pilot. There’s no doubt the two share a similar design language, but the Passport looks far more off-road oriented. A floating roof design, spoiler and black strip along the tailgate might be the most distinctive design choices on Honda’s latest SUV. A matte black grille and 20-inch wheels adorn all Passports as well.” — Autoblog

2019 Honda Passport Exterior Styling

Rugged Styling

As the most rugged Honda light truck to date, the all-new Passport is infused with bold styling elements which include higher ride height, standard black 20-inch wheels, matte black grille, and blackout headlights. Off the trails, sophisticated around-town design cues on the Passport include LED headlight accents, gloss black trim, a “floating” C-pillar, and chrome exhaust finishers.

Offering far more than just good looks, you will experience improved functionality from 0.5 inches of additional ground clearance on front-wheel drive models and 1.1 inches on all-wheel drive Passport models as compared to the three-row Honda Pilot. Shorter overall length, shortened rear overhangs, and improved departure and breakover angles help illustrate the enhanced off-road capabilities of the Honda Passport.

Versatile Interior

Featuring a modern yet sophisticated look, the interior of the all-new Honda Passport delivers spacious seating for up to 5 passengers along with class-leading passenger volume of 115.9 cubic feet and a best-in-class total interior volume of 157.1 cubic feet. Sport trim levels feature attractive and durable cloth upholstery while EX-L, Touring, and Elite trims include perforated leather seating surfaces along with a blackout headliner.

Engineered for those living active lifestyles, the Passport has a maximum cargo capacity of 77.9 with the second-row seats folded flat. Easy-to-clean hard plastic surfaces allow you to carry mountain bikes or a week’s worth of camping equipment with ease. There’s even an underfloor storage compartment that provides 2.5 cubic feet of additional space with available removable and washable bins.
