Revived just last year, the Honda Passport is a two-row midsize SUV that slots between the compact CR-V and the three-row Pilot. In some ways, the Passport incorporates the best of both, offering a roomy interior, a powerful engine, and a compliant ride. Its cabin is fitted with upscale materials and loads of safety features, making it ideal for families that seek comfort and versatility. Since the model was re-released just a year ago, the 2020 Passport doesn’t come with any meaningful changes, but it maintains the same traits that helped it earn a spot in such a competitive segment.

The 2020 Honda Passport comes in four trim levels: Sport, EX-L, Touring and Elite. All of them are powered by the same 3.5-liter 6-cylinder engine found in the Honda Pilot. This powertrain generates 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque and is matched to a nine-speed automatic transmission that delivers power to the front wheels. Those who desire more capability on any road or weather condition can upgrade to all-wheel drive.
The 2020 Passport boasts a comfortable and extensive interior with plenty of room to store cargo. When all seats are in place, there are 41.2 cubic feet of storage space, which can be increased to 77.9 cubic feet by folding down the 60/40 split second-row seats. Designed to make passengers feel at home, every Passport comes with state-of-the-art amenities such as tri-zone automatic climate control, a seven-speaker sound system, a 5-inch display, Bluetooth® connectivity, a multi-functional center console storage, and underfloor storage compartments. Higher trims include additional features such as an 8-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ capability, a Wi-Fi hotspot, satellite navigation, a 10-speaker premium audio system, Smart Entry, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and heated seats.
When it comes to safety, the Passport doesn’t disappoint either. All trims are stocked with plenty of driver-assist technologies that help take care of what matters the most. Standard features include forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking, lane keeping assist, road departure mitigation, adaptative cruise control, and automatic high beams. Select trims add blind spot information system with cross-traffic monitor.
