Sport and Elite trims will receive the gloss black wheels you see in these pictures, while EX-L and Touring get silver wheels.
All variants of the 2019 Honda Passport get Honda Sensing suite of driver-assistive technologies and advanced safety features including road departure mitigation, collision mitigation braking system with forward collision warning, lane keeping assistance system, lane departure warning and adaptive cruise control.
The Passport's interior boasts a 100 cubic-foot maximum cargo capacity with the rear seat folded flat.
Higher-end variants pack on the features as the mid-level Passport EX-L has heated leather seats, a moonroof and an 8-inch Display Audio system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Upgraded trims come with 4G LTE Wi-Fi and a free 90-day trial of AT&T data.
A host of driver and safety systems have made into the vehicle, as part of the Honda Sensing suite, including Lane Departure Warning, and Adaptive Cruise Control. A multi-angle reverse camera and a seven-inch instrument display are standard-fit.
Blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are standard for all Passports except the Sport, while Touring and Elite trims include front and rear parking sensors. And, instead of three rows of seating like the Pilot, the Passport is a two-row, five-passenger SUV. In light of the shorter rear overhang, Honda has positioned the vehicle as a more off-road-capable SUV, with a 28 mm increase in ride height (15 mm on front-wheel drive models) said to improve approach, departure and breakover angles. Looking at the trunk of the 2019 Honda Passport, one seems to believe more that yes, this Honda Passport is indeed built for families.
Four-wheel drive models can also switch between multiple driving modes for different weather and terrain, including snow, mud and sand, while front-wheel-drive models have a dedicated snowy conditions mode. Although the new Passport has that adventure-ready look, Honda told us it was about halfway through the development process when it chose the Passport name, leaving behind all the connections (except its name) with the previous Passport.
