About the Honda Passport

The most rugged member of the growing lineup of Honda SUVs and crossovers, the Honda Passport gives drivers a distinctive blend of on-road driving refinement and impressive off-road capabilities to help them 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 Honda i-VTM4™ torque-vectoring all-wheel drive and its four-mode Intelligent Traction Management system. The Honda Passport is available in three trim levels: the well-appointed EX-L, rugged TrailSport, and the fully equipped Black Edition.


What the Critics Say

Spacious, capable, and nicely equipped for the money, the Honda Passport hits its marks as a mid-size SUV. Sharing many of its mechanicals with the three-row Pilot and Ridgeline pickup, the Passport uses a familiar name from Honda’s 1990s lineup but is fully modern, with plenty of standard safety equipment and optional tech features.” — Car and Driver
The V6 delivers smooth and punchy acceleration. In Edmunds’ instrumented testing, the Passport covered 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds, which is among the quickest in the class. At full throttle, the nine-speed transmission shifts quickly and efficiently. Steering wheel shift paddles are also on hand to give you manual control.” — Edmunds

What’s New for 2024

A variety of impressive updates have been made to the Honda Passport for the 2024 model year. Perhaps the biggest change is the elimination of last year’s range-topping Elite trim. Its replacement is an all-new Black Edition model that delivers aggressive styling elements including all-black exterior badging and unique interior appointments. The rugged TrailSport variants also receive updates including a new suspension design to boost ride quality, new alloy wheels with all-terrain tires, and a new Diffused Sky Pearl paint color option. Rounding out the list of changes is a new center console that’s been redesigned to deliver more storage capacity than last year’s model.

Honda Passport Features

Honda Passport Styling

Confident Styling

Featuring the most rugged design of a Honda late model light truck to date, the Passport captures the attention of bystanders with unique features that include a matte black grille, blackout headlight accents, and an elevated ride height. Equally as comfortable on city streets, the Passport stands out with its chrome exhaust tips, LED headlight accents, gloss black exterior trim, and a signature “floating” C-pillar.

In addition to its bold exterior, the Passport offers expanded capability with 0.5 inches of extra ground clearance on front-wheel drive models and an impressive 1.1 inches on all-wheel drive Passport trims when compared to the three-row Honda Pilot. Enhanced departure and breakover angles, reduced rear overhangs, and a shorter overall length help display the impressive off-road capabilities of the Honda Passport.

Honda Passport Interior

Adventure-Ready Interior

Equally as comfortable as it is practical, the cabin of the Honda Passport delivers plenty of space for up to 5 passengers, class-leading passenger volume totaling 114.9 cubic feet, and a best-in-class total interior volume of 157.1 cubic feet. Standard leather upholstery includes striking contrast stitching that varies by trim level for another eye-catching accent inside the interior.

Perfectly suited to those living active lifestyles, the Passport features a maximum cargo capacity of 77.7 cubic feet with the second row of seats folded flat. You’ll never have to worry about the mess that comes from carrying mountain bikes or camping equipment thanks to easy-to-clean hard plastic surfaces found on the seatbacks. You’ll also have an optional underfloor storage compartment which adds 2.5 cubic feet of extra space along with removable and washable bins.
