The 2019 Honda Passport is the newest addition to Honda’s SUV lineup, sitting between the compact CR-V and the three-row Pilot. With its rugged good looks and its tech-savvy interior, this SUV is a solid choice in its segment. Here, we look at some reasons why you should consider bringing home the 2019 Honda Passport.
If you tend to haul a lot of people or cargo around town, then the 2019 Passport will appeal to you. This sporty SUV has an interior volume of 157.1 cubic feet with a total of 41.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second-row seats. When the second-row seats are folded down, this number expands to 77.9 cubic feet. The Passport also has a hands-free power liftgate, which makes it easier to load cargo with your hands full. You will also find 2.5 cubic feet of underfloor storage that has removable and washable bins, allowing you to store your dirty gear without having to worry about getting everything else dirty.
Heading off road is simple in the 2019 Passport. This SUV comes with an available Intelligent Variable Torque Management all-wheel-drive system, which is designed to respond to the traction needed for each wheel, reducing the amount of slippage you will experience no matter your terrain. You can even choose what type of terrain your Passport is going to be tackling to help give you the best traction possible. Every Passport has Snow Mode and those with all-wheel drive have Mud and Sand Modes.
Power for the Passport comes from a standard 3.5-liter direct-injected V6 engine, which is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. It produces 280 horsepower, great for hitting the open road. With this powertrain, the Passport can tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped. That means you can head off on your next adventure with whatever you need, whether it’s a trailer or a boat.
The Honda Passport looks great on paper, but it’s even better when you take it on a test drive. Contact us at Love Honda to learn more about how you can meet it at the dealership.
