2021 Honda Passport review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2021 Honda Passport?

The Honda Passport is a shortened version of the automaker’s Pilot three-row SUV. The two-row Passport seats five, and all versions are powered by a 280-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine that works with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is available. With more body cladding and black exterior trim, the Passport looks more rugged and less “family” than the Pilot. Competitors include the Nissan Murano, Ford Edge and Hyundai Santa Fe.

What’s New on the 2021 Honda Passport?

An 8-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity is now standard.  

What Features in the 2021 Honda Passport Are Most Important?

Standard features include:

  • Honda Sensing suite of active-safety features
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • Keyless entry
  • Remote start
  • Automatic high-beam headlights

Available features include:

  • Blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert
  • Leather-trimmed seats
  • Heated front and rear seats
  • Ventilated front seats
  • Wireless device charging
  • Hands-free power liftgate
  • Power moonroof

Should I Buy the 2021 Honda Passport?

If you’re looking for a spacious, two-row mid-size SUV with a long list of safety features, and you don’t need serious off-road capability, the Passport is a smart choice. Ample cargo room and a refined ride are highlights, and the interior is smartly designed. Some of the multimedia system’s controls, however, are fussy.

Some problems with 2019 Passport

I bought a used 2019 and have had it in the shop 3 times. Twice for radio issues and ended up with a new amplifier. Thank God I bought an extended warranty! Today a communication problem between the power train module and the transmission module left me stranded at a light!! 3rd time in - getting a software update that hopefully will fix the problem. This Honda owner is not particularly happy right now.


Passport is just right

Just right ! We pretty much drove every single mid size to large SUV. And the passport delivered. The styling looks awesome and it also gives a lot of space. We have 2 large dogs and they have a good amount of room when traveling. We also considered the VW Atlas but went with Honda for it’s proven reliability. Also considered the Pilot but didn’t like the styling as much and it didn’t fit in our garage very well. For the Passport - The only thing I’d change is the material around the drink holder - it’s a shiny and seems to always be dirty. Prior to this car I had a 2019 GMC Terrain which I had to get rid of due to an issue with the automatic stop and then not starting again. I would definitely recommend the Passport!!


Spacious 2 row from Honda

I wanted something larger than our CRV but not a 3 row. I choose the passport because of the open cabin being very spacious, strong v6 engine and Vtech sings past 5000 RPM, wow it’s sweet. I got the touring model in white. The car is very nice and comfortable large back seat space and cargo area and great lift over height. The cons are the collision mitigation braking system and scared me at least once or twice a week . I literally said “brake !” And hit the brakes at 45 mph cause a puddle in the road and taking a curb with oncoming traffic. Definitely needs updates. Also the transmission is clunky when warming up. I love the car and it’s been great otherwise
