The Passport revives the nameplate from the original SUV sold between 1993 and 2002. The new Honda Passport comes with a refreshed design, offering a rugged stance. The blacked-out grille, chrome-black alloy wheels and the body-coloured roof rails further add to the rugged stance of the SUV. The Honda passport further comes with black-cladding all around the SUV.
Inside, the Honda Passport offers the best-in-class cabin space. This is mainly due to the larger size, five-seat configuration. The cabin space further extends to the boot, with the Passport SUV offering a massive 1,167 litres. This can further be extended to 2,206 litres with the rear seats folded in a 60:40 split.
The Passport SUV will also come loaded with features, these include an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a 590-watt audio system on the top-spec model. Other standard features include a 360-degree camera, lane departure alerts, lane-keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, emergency auto braking and forward collision warning.
The new Honda Passport SUV comes with a new monocoque chassis and a single engine option. This includes a 3.5-litre V6 petrol power unit producing 284bhp and 355Nm of torque. It is further mated to a nine-speed torque-converter gearbox.
The power is sent to the front wheels, while an all-wheel-drive system is also on offer. The all-wheel-drive system on the Honda Passport sends 70 per cent of the power to the individual rear wheels.
The front-wheel-drive version is available in two driving modes: normal and snow. The all-wheel-drive version, on the other hand, receives four driving modes - normal, sand, snow and mud.
