Last year Honda introduced a brand-new vehicle to its lineup, a midsize crossover utility vehicle known as the Honda Passport, and we couldn’t be more pleased with this rugged, off-road-ready vehicle. It’s not the first time the Passport name has been used by the brand, as the nameplate was first used for a midsize SUV from 1993 to 2002. But this version is sleeker and more sophisticated than the original, and it’s now in its sophomore year as the 2020 Honda Passport is available near Tacoma WA.
First of all, you might be wondering what the difference is between the Honda Passport and Pilot, as they’re both considered midsize utility vehicles. The main difference is that the Passport is a crossover while the Pilot is considered a traditional SUV, with a whole extra row of seating. The Honda Passport was designed to be a two-row crossover ready to tackle adventures both on and off the road.
Powered by a 3.5L V6 engine, the Passport is capable of generating 280 horsepower, and with features like its Intelligent Traction Management system, available torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, 4-wheel independent suspension, all-season tires and more, it’s more than capable of tackling off-road treks. But it’s not just an off-road vehicle, it’s packed full of great features inside and out to make driving or riding in it more convenient and comfortable.
Plus, it offers a host of great technologies, like a connected audio system, wireless phone charging, HondaLink, an available Wi-Fi hotspot and so much more. That’s not even touching on safety, which is certainly bolstered by the Honda Sensing safety suite coming standard in the Honda Passport, including Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keeping Assist System.
