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.

A good reliable car

With my Passport I got what I was looking for: Power, performance, cargo space, adécuate confort for passengers, good stereo with HD radio and capable to play my FLAC music files, not so expensive and an reliable car for retirement, meaning it will be my last buy. It is true the interior is not so fancy like other cars, but the most important is that I feel secure, confortable and ultimate enjoy driving my passport, love it.

2.0

a black hole.

Honda passport interiors are horrible. theyve gone way down hill. noisy cabin and lots of hard cheap plastic. you want black you got it. black interior means all black from the carpet to the headliner. a few silver trim pcs here and there but overall truly depressing. even a santa fe w black seats is much better w lighter pillars and headliner. annoying touchscreen and gearshift. spongy brakes and poor ride, steering and handling. the 20" wheels on a midsize suv dont help either. its got the v6 and smooth power train, lots of space but thats it. not much value and used is way over priced.

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.
