I The US model range from Honda is home to the Passport, the was last offered in 2002, between the compact CR-V, which is also known to us, and the large, seven-seater pilot. The Passport is supposed to benefit from the booming SUV market and competes in the USA against competitors such as the Ford Edge, the Nissan Murano or the upcoming Chevrolet Blazer.

Front-wheel or all-wheel drive

In In the upper mid-range SUV, the Passport has a self-supporting body and a new, direct-injection V6 petrol engine. Much of the technology comes from the sister models Pilot and Ridgeline. The 3.5 liter unit relies on the variable valve control VTEC, develops 280 hp and delivers a maximum torque of 355 Nm. In the base comes the Passport with front-wheel drive. The drive torque can optionally be distributed to all four wheels via a nine-speed automatic transmission and torque vectoring. The drive management also offers three driving modes (snow, sand and dirt), which should ensure optimal propulsion on all surfaces. The system transfers a maximum of 70 percent of the drive torque to the rear axle. The trailer load is between 1.6 and 2.3 tons.

Like a large CR-V

In order to offer its passengers optimum safety, the Honda Passport with the assistance system package is Honda Scythe equipped. In terms of design, the new Passport is based heavily on the new CR-V, but is a bit more generous in all dimensions and comes as standard on 20-inch alloy wheels with 245/50 or 265/45 tires. The Passport is 4.84 meters long, 1.82 meters high and two meters wide. The wheelbase is specified as 2.82 meters.

The Honda Passport will be offered on the US market in four trim levels from the beginning of 2019. Prices have not yet been announced.
