Honda, which still has a lineup heavy with cars, took a shortcut to offering another option for today’s SUV-crazy buyers by creating a shorter, two-row version of its already-successful Pilot three-row SUV, called the 2019 Honda Passport.

With the 2019 Passport, which revives the name of an earlier Honda SUV, the company has served up an SUV for buyers who don’t want or need a third row, or the increased bulk that comes with it. But they also want a little more in space, power and features — not to mention status — than Honda’s ubiquitous CR-V compact SUV. Plus, they’re able to afford the Passport’s higher price, starting at $33,035, including a destination charge, for a front-wheel-drive base Sport trim level. That’s near the top price for a CR-V with front-wheel drive and even a few hundred dollars more than a base-level, front-wheel-drive Pilot.

The five-seat Passport, unveiled at the 2018 Los Angeles Auto Show in November, shows its Pilot roots but was given a more rugged face and other details. And we’ve found that, though the 3.5-liter V-6 and nine-speed automatic powertrain is the same, the Passport is a bit nimbler than its bigger, heavier sibling.

Initial sales results have been encouraging for Honda, making it appear to be a bright idea and also apparently showing shoppers can’t get enough SUV choices. As of this writing, dealers list some 7,786 new (and a handful of used) 2019 Passports on
