Sophistication and Capability
The 2020 Honda Passport offers customers an exceptional combination of on-road sophistication, class-leading cargo and passenger space, and robust off-road capability.
With spacious seating for five adults, standard i-VTEC V6 power, and standard Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive technologies, the 2020 Passport Sport with 2-wheel-drive starts at $31,990 (excluding $1,095 destination and handling).
Larger than the compact CR-V, but more sporty and personal than the three-row and family-oriented Pilot, the five-passenger Passport midsize SUV offers the exceptional off-road capability of Honda’s available i-VTM4 torque-vectoring all-wheel drive and the power and towing capability of its 280-horsepower (SAE net) 3.5-liter i-VTEC V6 mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission.
Based on Honda’s reinforced unibody Global Light Truck platform, with a sophisticated fully independent suspension, fully boxed floor structure and the latest generation of Honda’s proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) body structure, the Passport offers excellent refinement and top-class collision safety ratings, including a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA and an anticipated TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the IIHS.
Beyond good looks, Passport’s design offers superior functionality as well. Ground clearance is up 0.5 inches on front-wheel drive models and 1.1 inches on all-wheel drive models compared to Passport’s three-row sibling, Pilot, while its shorter overall length and shortened rear overhang offer improved approach, departure and breakover angles, suitable for more rugged terrain.
Passport’s wider wheels and tires complement its athletic and sporty stance and support both responsive around-town handling and increased grip off-road. A ruggedly styled front end stands out on the road with its scratch-resistant matte finish grille suited to the off-road adventures Passport is designed for.
Passport is available in four trims: Sport, EX-L, Touring and Elite. All come standard with 20-inch wheels, a matte-black grille, Honda Sensing, and increased ride height with more athletic proportion and stance compared to the three-row Pilot.
Passport’s interior offers best-in-class passenger space and total interior volume, with a large “basement” cargo area under the main cargo floor that is ideal for storing dirty gear or keeping valuables out of sight. EX-L, Touring and Elite models come with Honda’s blind spot information system, while other additional premium technologies available on Passport include in-vehicle Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, an 8-inch Display Audio system, and wireless phone charging.
Passport Sport trim comes standard with a 215-watt audio system with a 5-inch display monitor and 6 speakers, plus a subwoofer. Passport EX-L, Touring and Elite trims feature Honda’s 8-inch Display Audio touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration and manual power/volume knob. The Display Audio system uses gestures common to smartphones and tablets, such as swipe, tap and pinch, to control the vehicle’s audio system, display settings and other advanced features.
