2019 Honda Passport
Ratings & Reliability
The new Passport is a stubbier version of Honda's Pilot SUV. They share a platform and the same smooth, refined 3.5-liter V6 engine and nine-speed automatic transmission. We measured 21 mpg overall. The five-seat, midsized Passport slots between the compact CR-V and three-row Pilot, and competes with the Ford Edge and Nissan Murano. Unlike the Pilot, we found the Passport's ride to be rather stiff, but without a marked improvement in handling agility. The infotainment system is rather slow to respond and the push-button gear selector is tricky to use without looking down. The interior is roomy and full of handy storage places. Forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking are standard, but blind spot warning comes only on more-expensive trims.
