550 × 323


The 2019 Honda Passport has already made its rounds at both the 2019 Detroit Auto Show, and recently, the 2019 Boston Auto Show. There, people were able to see what the new SUV is all about and what makes it different than other Honda SUVs. The one thing that wasn't revealed was the pricing for the new model.

The new Honda SUV starts at $31,990 and will be offered in four trims-Sport, EX-L, Touring and Elite. According to Automotive News, all-wheel drive (AWD) adds $1,900 to each trim level except the range-topping Elite, on which it is standard.

In regards to the AWD, Honda expects the AWD take rate on the Passport to be high.


“This customer, we think is going to be a lot of awd,” said Jay Joseph, assistant vice president of product planning at Honda. “We're thinking this will be relatively high because this is somebody who doesn't need a third row. They're at a life stage where their priorities are having that freedom to go anywhere, anytime. We do see a much higher percentage of awd in Passport than we do, say, for Pilot.”

 

All new Passport models are powered by a 3.5-liter V-6 engine that generates 280 hp and 262 pound feet of torque combined with a nine-speed automatic transmission. In addition to the engine, the SUV also includes Honda's suite of safety features. Those features include Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS), Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM), Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS), and Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).

According to Car and Driver, the Passport seats 5 passengers and is viewed as a smaller Honda Pilot. One of the most notable features is its off-roading capabilities. Its i-VTEC V-6 engine and available i-VTM4 AWD system help you power through, while its 4-wheel independent suspension and 9-speed transmission offer a remarkably smooth drive. 

After being one of five stand out cars at the 2018 LA Auto Show this past Fall, it is quite clear that the 2019 Honda Passport is making a comeback
