Specs at a Glance

The Honda Passport is one of the most popular SUVs on the road. This year, however, the Passport gets even better with adding some new technology features to the base level, which is called the Sport. The Sport now offers an eight-inch touchscreen that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Along with those features, you will get a spacious cabin with comfortable seating and many storage compartments. While the base trim level has many amenities to please the entire family, you may also want to consider the Elite, which is the top Passport trim level, if you're looking for more.


All trims of the 2021 Honda Passport have an identical engine, a V6 with a displacement of 3.5L. The Honda's engine generates 280 HP and a maximum of 6,000 RPM. Its peak torque is 262 LB-FT. All trims share the same shiftable nine-speed automatic for their transmission. Although the Sport trim gets front-wheel drive for its drivetrain, you can switch to all-wheel drive for enhanced handling and traction. All-wheel drive is standard if you get the Elite. The Sport can tow 3,500 pounds with front-wheel drive, but towing power increases to 5,000 pounds if you select all-wheel drive or get the Elite.


Both Honda Passport trim levels have an impressive appearance that includes LED headlights. The headlights are automatic for convenience. Fog lights are also standard with the Sport. The Sport rides on 20-inch alloy wheels. With the Elite comes some extra exterior features, including rain-sensing automatic windshield wipers. The Elite also has roof rails for style and the additional cargo carrying capacity. Heated mirrors are also standard with this trim level.


In both trims, you'll find a well-equipped cabin that's just as stylish as the exterior. An eight-inch touchscreen interface is a new and notable standard amenity for the Honda Passport Sport trim level. The Sport also has split-folding seats and comfortable cloth-covered seating. The Elite trim has a more upscale interior with a switch to leather upholstery instead. A heated steering wheel comes with the Elite, which also gets ventilated and heated front seats for year-round comfort. This trim builds on the Sport's technology list with a 10-speaker sound system, wireless phone charging, and navigation. Both trims have Honda's advanced safety package, while the Elite adds parking sensors.
