The 2020 Honda Passport begins arriving at dealerships, offering customers an exceptional combination of on-road sophistication, class-leading cargo and passenger space, and robust off-road capability. The car has spacious seating for five adults, standard i-VTEC V6 power, and standard Honda Sensing safety and driver-assistive technologies.
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.
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.
Also available for the 2020 Honda Passport is a wide variety of Genuine Honda accessories that can be used to customize the customer’s Passport adventure and to accommodate a broad variety of outdoor gear, from bikes and kayaks to skis and snowboards.
