2019 Passport Performance Specs
The 2019 Honda Passport is a midsize SUV that performs well on the city streets and off the beaten path.
It comes with a 3.5L V6 engine that’s mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission with shift-by-wire and paddle shifters. The engine delivers 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque for plenty of passing power. Then, the transmission’s shift-management system allows for seamless multiple-gear downshifts, while its paddle shifters let you stay in control.
As we mentioned before, the Passport offers great handling on any type of road, including bumpier terrain. That’s in part thanks to the 4-wheel independent suspension. This gives the vehicle great maneuverability on rocky roads.
There’s also the available Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ AWD System. It’s designed to respond to the traction that’s available at each wheel. The result is having less slippage on wet roads and better handling on dry ones.
Enough Space for All Your People & Gear
No matter what type of adventure you’re going on, you’ll want to make sure there’s more than enough room for all your equipment.
Luckily, the Honda Passport offers plenty of space with 41.2 cubic feet behind the rear seats. Fold that row down, and you’ll have 77.9 cubic feet for your camping, beach, or other type of gear.
Plus, a Hands-Free Access Power Tailgate is available for quick access to the cargo area. Even if your hands are full, you can just swipe your foot under the rear bumper to have the liftgate open in seconds.
Not only can you fit items of all shapes and sizes into the Passport, but you can also seat five people inside easily. In fact, everyone has more than enough room to comfortably stretch out, as shown by the following interior dimensions:
- Front headroom/legroom: 40.1 inches/40.9 inches
- Rear headroom/legroom: 40.1 inches/39.6 inches
- Passenger volume: 115.9 cubic feet
With comfortable and supportive seats among two rows, everyone on board can feel relaxed on even the longest drives.
Honda Passport Technologies
The 2019 Passport also has lots of high-tech features to help you stay connected, entertained, and safer throughout your travels.
For instance, the vehicle offers Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone integration. This feature makes it easy to send a quick text, listen to a podcast, and more without needing to mess with your phone while driving.
There’s an available Honda Satellite-Linked Navigation System™, as well. The turn-by-turn directions will appear clearly on an 8-inch high-resolution display screen, and Honda HD Digital Traffic will help you get to your destination in no time at all.
Furthermore, the vehicle can help you get from Point A to Point B safely, thanks to Honda Sensing®.
This standard suite of driver-assisting technologies was designed to help keep you aware of your surroundings and even help prevent an accident from occurring. With features like a Lane Keeping Assist System and Collision Mitigation Braking System™, you’ll get assistance with staying in your lane while also avoiding a collision with a vehicle or person.
