A passport can get you many places, while certain passports enjoy more privileges than some, there is one Passport that comes with infinite prerogatives and can take you places worth exploring, and that passport comes home from the Land of the Rising Sun. Ladies and gentlemen, make way for the Honda Passport.

2020 Honda Passport is not new to the American car market. It's not like that the Honda Passport carries a long legacy on its back, yet it does have a stronghold in the US car market or specifically SUV market. The Passport is a charming vehicle with a good fan base and is commemorated for its practicality and performance. The 5 door SUV has a whole lot of new things that translate it into a great budget SUV with features that are hard to find even in some of the exorbitant SUVs.

Overall Rating


The 2020 Honda Passport has an extensive charm of a big crossover that is clearly exhibited in the way it looks on the outside and the inside. The cool new elements and tech inside the SUV transform it into a new genre of car that drives you and your family with the utmost calm and comfort. While the interior does its part of keeping the occupants at ease, a 3.5L I-VTEC V6 engine, belting out a handy 280 hp and 262 lb.-ft. of the twisties ensures that you are never short on octane. 

The Honda Passport makes it to 2020 in a total of four trims, going by the names- Sport, EX-L, Touring, and Elite. The prices for the base Sport trim start at a humble $31,990, while the top of the line Elite trim comes at an MSRP of $43,780. All the trims, except the Elite, offer FWD configuration as standard, whereas upgrading to the AWD configuration costs $2000 more. The Elite trim, however, is offered only in AWD configuration.

9.0/10

The Honda passport comes in 4 different trim configurations they are Sport, EX-L, Touring, and Elite. While all the trims remain identical in terms of the powertrain specifications, the basis they are distinguished upon is features on-board. While some of the standard highlights include driver-assist features such as adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking, there are a number of intriguing features that are on offer only in the higher trims. All the trims except for the Elite offer FWD as the standard drivetrain, while also give the option of upgrading to AWD at an additional cost of $2000.

Which Honda passport trim one should buy?

Such type of decision generally depends upon the application of the work you are going to use that vehicle. The Honda Passport comes in AWD and FWD modes with all the trims except for the Elite. While there is absolutely no powertrain difference in the trims, we recommend you to go for the EX-L trim as it offers several premium features without burning a hole in your pocket. Speaking of the drivetrain, we'd say you go for the AWD configuration as it is more fun to drive, and also lends the Passport some serious off-roading capabilities. 

2020 Honda Passport Engine and Performance

9.0/10

The Honda Passport obtains its octane via a 3.5L V6 engine, that generates 280 ponies and 262 lb.-ft. of peak torque that kicks in at 4700 rpm. Though not absolutely blazing, yet these figures seem sufficient to drive the vehicle on any road with ease. The Honda Passport engages a 9-speed automatic transmission in order to consummate the shifting duties. The transmission panel feels smooth at all times, and executes the upshifts and downshifts with utmost precision.

The Honda Passport is the only car in the segment that gets a 6 cylinder engine, contrary to the Inline-4 engines, that drive all the other contenders of the segment. The bigger engine exhibits the prerogatives, making the Passport the most powerful car in this comparison. Acura RDX, which is more of a glorified Passport, comes second in terms of displacement figures with 272 ponies. However, RDX surpasses the Passport in terms of the spinning force. The Volvo XC60 T5 Momentum rakes in the third spot, with a mass of 250 ponies, finally followed by the Lincoln MKC. 

How fast can the Honda Passport go?

The Honda Passport is a sporty SUV that is designed aerodynamically in spite of its huge proportions. The large proportions somewhat hampers the driving abilities of the SUV but it manages to perform decently well in a straight line. However, its slightly underpowered torque figures make it a bit lazy on roads but higher in the rev range, the engine comes alive and a strong rush of torque pushes forward the SUV with a sense of eagerness.

2020 Honda Passport SUV can sprint from 0-60 MPH in just 6.1 sec

The Honda Passport sprints from 0-60 mph in just over six seconds, and covers the quarter of a mile distance in 14.7 seconds, at a speed of 94 mph. Though these figures are not going to give you goosebumps, yet they earn a respectable tag when seen in the light of the fact that the Passport is a huge car that weighs more than 3800 pounds.

The Honda Passport is really fast for an SUV. The speed records on paper are mainly associated with its light frame chassis and the 9-speed gearbox. Most of the rivals also stand in close proximity to the sprinting figures of the Honda Passport. However, it's the Lincoln MKC that has a 0-60 figure of 7.1 seconds, making it the lazy one here. 

Does the Honda Passport have a better braking performance than its competitors?

The braking performance is nothing to write home about. Braking takes a hit due to the mass the Honda has to lug around. The brakes feel strong enough and are not too grabby. The brakes are assisted by some top of the line safety features which helps the behemoth to maintain composure under hard braking.

How is the ride and handling of the Honda Passport?

The Honda Passport is known for its comfy ride quality and powerful performance on roads. The Honda Passport offers a comfortable ride on city and highway roads which is benefited by its suspension setup, light frame chassis, and ground clearance. The SUV comes with responsive steering that translates to better road hold and attentive driving while feeling agile at all times. The SUV drives well on small undulations and potholes but once you drive over larger potholes and bumpy roads you notice the worst of the ride quality. 

2020 Honda Passport SUV rear view

It feels the vehicle losses its suspension capabilities on bumpy roads and there is a disconnect between the road and the vehicle. The light chassis which help it speed up and perform on roads turns gloomy for the SUV on bumpy roads. However, the ride quality of an SUV is operated by a lot of factors. Overall the Honda Passport offers a composed ride quality. It’s good on corners at lower speeds but at higher speeds, you can feel the body roll. The ground clearance is impressive but its jerky ride on rough roads spoils the broth.

2020 Honda Passport Fuel Economy

7.0/10

Honda Passport is a good car to own if you don’t consider the fuel economy. The miles per gallon figure does not translate it into a fuel saver, nor is it a gas guzzler for an SUV. The 3.5L V6 engine is an average performer in the fuel efficiency segment. The Passport is a good family SUV but in today’s context, it could have delivered better fuel efficiency.

The Honda Passport, in FWD setup, can cover 22 miles on city streets and can navigate through 27 miles on the highway, for each gallon of gasoline you stuff into it. The mpg figures in the AWD configuration further takes a dip delivering 19 and 24 miles per gallon on city and highways respectively. The Passport tips in the scales at almost 4000lbs and for that kind of weight, the naturally-aspirated petrol engine can't match with the diesel oil burners in terms of the fuel economy figures. 

2020 Honda Passport Interior

9.0/10

The Honda Passport is known among all other SUVs for its fine quality and plush interior work. The interior looks and feels upmarket and is detailed in the 2020 Honda Passport. The dashboard is beautifully designed and is wrapped in soft-touch plastics throughout. You can quickly relate the interior of the Honda Passport with that of Honda’s Ridgeline. The design is remarkably good and the quality of the material is excellent. The controls and the air vents placed on the dashboard look organized. The steering wheel also gets additional control buttons and there is leather-wrapped steering as an option. The wide and capacious body looks butch on the outside and is truly roomy on the inside.

Is the Honda Passport a comfortable ride for 5 passengers?

Yes, it is enormous on the inside. The car is phenomenally spacious and comfortable for city and highway journeys. It gets wide body seats and a comfortable seating position which maximizes the comfort on every road and ride. There is a humongous amount of headroom, legroom, and shoulder room in both the rows of seats and the management of space in the interior is simply impressive.

Seats in are cushiony and provide better support to your back on bumpy drives and city roads. The second row comfortably seats 3 people even for long rides on highways. The air vents and windows are positioned ergonomically that distribute a good amount of air in the cabin.

To your surprise, the cargo space can carry up to 10 big sized luggage boxes and still has space to add additional cargo or luggage. The 50 cu-ft of storage that is behind the rear seat is more than sufficient to carry an entire expedition plan or all of your camping bags. Folding the rear seats flat present an entire spare room of space that calculates to around 78 cubic feet.

8.0/10

The 2020 Honda Passport is a big and bulky SUV that is designed to carry five passengers and all of their luggage with utmost ease and comfort. Honda Passport is based on the light truck platform which runs on a boxed floor that is rigid and strong. The bold character of the SUV is detailed with the design of its raised hood and upright grille meanwhile the sporty lines that run along the body add to its charm. 

2020 Honda Passport SUV three quarter view

The Passport and Pilot share the same 111-inch wheelbase, though the Passport's body is 6.5 inches shorter. Its adventure-seeking design is highlighted by higher ride height, 20-inch alloys, and a scratch-resistant matte black grille and bumper. However, the Passport's charm is not merely limited to it being a robust soft off-roader. Elements such as blacked-out headlights, LED accents and chrome exhaust finishers do lend it a touch of sophistication as well. The floating C-pillar and dynamic wheel arches further accentuate its athletic design.

The Honda Passport and Pilot comes with similar dimensions but unlike the Pilot, Passport only accommodates 5 people and gets only 2 rows of seating that adds to its luggage space. In terms of looks, the Passport is a sporty looking SUV but it also kind of looks like an American minivan. Its sporty character comes from the high ground clearance and the floating roofline.

2020 Honda Passport Competition

Honda Passport vs Acura RDX

The Acura RDX is a Nobel family SUV that is powered by a 2.0L Inline-4 engine that belts out 272 hp and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. The Acura RDX is more of a glorified Honda Passport, boasting Honda's premium sigil on its front grille. While the RDX does everything right to become one of the most alluring offerings of the segment, it is more expensive than the Passport. The Passport and the RDX do get similar displacement figures, yet the former feels much more refined than the latter.

Honda Passport vs Volvo XC60

The Volvo XC60 beats the Honda Passport in terms of safety but it falls on the performance and is inadequately powered for a Volvo. It is powered with a 2.0L Inline-4 engine that fabricates 250 hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. The looks and the interiors of the Volvo also appeal to many. But it lacks the performance as well as space on the inside. It is also a good consideration for a family SUV only if you are willing to compromise on the interior comfort features and performance.

Honda Passport vs Lincoln MKC

The Lincoln MKC is a stunning performer which is powered by a 2.0L Inline 4. It has a more refined engine and a great ride quality. The SUV looks great and also gets premium looking interiors but it lacks safety features. Even it is not a muscular looking car that can go offroad, it is a gas guzzler which requires a lot of maintenance. Honda Passport is way more economical and road-friendly than the Lincoln MKC. The lincoln gets comparatively less interior space and features.

2020 Honda Passport Final Verdict

Honda Passport is a feature-loaded vehicle that also gets some of the most premium features in the segment. It has an amazing fan base in the US market for its comfortable and spacious interior and the performance-oriented wide and muscular body. The safety features list is expansive and even the base variant comes loaded with a ton of standard safety equipment which makes it a value for money buy.

The best

The AWD makes all the difference in the world if you live in an area where it snows a lot. Not that FWD is bad or anything but AWD inspires a lot of confidence.
