Honda dealerships across the South took delivery today of 2020 Honda Passports, assembled at Honda Manufacturing of Alabama in Lincoln, using domestic and global parts.
The Passport, situated in size between the more compact CR-V and the more family-oriented Pilot, offers seating for five adults, a standard i-VTEC V6 engine and off-road capability.
It also packs considerable safety technology, with standard Honda Sensing and driver-assistive technologies. The vehicle will sell for an MSRP with destination charge range of between $33,085 to $44,875.
Based on Honda’s reinforced unibody Global Light Truck platform, with a sophisticated fully independent suspension, fully boxed floor structure and the latest generation of Honda’s proprietary Advanced Compatibility Engineering™ (ACE™) body structure, the Passport offers excellent refinement and top-class collision safety ratings, including a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA1 and an anticipated TOP SAFETY PICK rating from the IIHS.
Passport is available in four trims: Sport, EX-L, Touring and Elite. All come standard with 20-inch wheels, a matte-black grille, Honda Sensing, and increased ride height with more athletic proportion and stance compared to the three-row Pilot. Passport’s interior offers best-in-class passenger space and total interior volume, with a large “basement” cargo area under the main cargo floor that is ideal for storing dirty gear or keeping valuables out of sight. EX-L, Touring and Elite models come with Honda’s blind spot information system, while other additional premium technologies available on Passport include in-vehicle Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, an 8-inch Display Audio system, and wireless phone charging.
