About the All-New 2019 Honda Passport

Joining the growing lineup of Honda SUVs and crossovers, the all-new 2019 Honda Passport gives drivers a distinctive blend of on-road driving refinement and impressive off-road capabilities to help you get out and chase adventure. Best-in-class interior room creates the perfect environment for you and your passengers. Located between the compact CR-V and the three-row Pilot, the Honda Passport offers a reinforced unibody frame, muscular direct-injection i-VTEC® V6 engine, and a fully independent suspension. Even the most rugged terrain is no match for the Passport thanks to available Honda i-VTM4™ torque-vectoring all-wheel drive and its four-mode Intelligent Traction Management system.

Upon its debut, the Passport will be available in four individual trim levels: the well-appointed Sport, upgraded EX-L, high-tech Touring, and the fully equipped Elite. The Honda Passport is expected to begin arriving at dealers 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

Sporting the most rugged design of a Honda light truck to date, the all-new Passport captures the attention of bystanders with eye-catching styling elements including higher ride height, standard 20-inch black wheels, a matte black grille, and blackout headlight designs. Once you return to city streets, the Passport features a sophisticated look with features like gloss black trim, chrome exhaust finishers, LED headlight accents, and a “floating” C-pillar.

Going beyond its sharp appearance, the Passport delivers improved functionality with 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. Shortened overall length, shorter rear overhangs, and improved breakover and departure angles highlight the enhanced off-road capabilities of the Honda Passport.

Versatile Interior

Offering a sophisticated yet modern look, the cabin of the all-new Honda Passport features spacious seating for up to 5 passengers in addition to class-leading passenger volume of 115.9 cubic feet and a best-in-class total interior volume of 157.1 cubic feet. Attractive and durable cloth upholstery comes standard on Sport trims while EX-L, Touring, and Elite trims receive perforated leather seating surfaces along with a blackout headliner.

Perfectly suited to those living active lifestyles, the Passport features a maximum cargo capacity of 77.9 with the second-row seats folded flat. Simple-to-clean hard plastic surfaces on the seatbacks let you carry a week’s worth of camping supplies or mountain bikes with confidence. There’s also an available underfloor storage compartment which includes 2.5 cubic feet of additional cargo room with available removable and washable bins.
