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
Awesome V6 Engine, Boss SUV
We bought a 2021 Honda Passport Touring (FWD) in May 2021 with awesome Costco membership discount close to 10% off MSRP! ***Highlights that I love about 2021 Honda Passport*** 1. Awesome V6 engine, that's responsive and quick at 6.2 seconds for 0-60 mph. Great visibility for driving. 2. Handles the curves at high speeds of 75 mph like a champ. Very intuitive steering. Ride quality is acceptable with big 20 inch all season tires. I just drove to Lake Tahoe from Bay Area and my Passport left other competition such as Subaru Outback, Jeep Cherokee, Toyota Highlander, Lexus, Ford Explorer etc. in the dust. It really handles curves with supreme stability like a BOSS. Something my old CRV (that I still love) could also not do. 3. My family is really happy in passengers seats! Roomy and bright. Air controls for back seats too. My little toddler loves it and falls asleep easily :) 4. For Touring, we get Acoustic Glass throughout the car that helps very well with low decibel road noise (~68-69 decibels) 5. Safety is the best part! Blindspot Detection, Lane Departure Alert (with accurate steering correction), Rear Camera Alert, Auto Braking System and Adaptive Cruise Control all SUPER LEGIT. This is the best aspect of Honda Passport in addition to the space, which I talk about below. 6. AMAZING cargo space. 50 cubic feet with rear seats up, and a whopping 100 cubic feet with rear seats down. I was able to fit in 4 large Persian Rugs and 1 Big Box last week for donation with no problem (and it still had more space!!!) 7. Infotainment and Clusters are OK. Nothing bad; I would say it's just too simple yet practical. The dashboard area is monochromic, so may be bland, but nothing bad! 8. Love the aggressive looks with immense height and respectable ground clearance close to 8 inches. 9. Love the superb 510 watt sound system in Touring! ***Lowlights*** 1. Infotainment can be more seamless and attractive such as the ones in new Kia/Hyundai 2. There are buttons instead of gear stick, so sometimes after you put it in Parking "P" mode, the car has subtle swivel movement (few inches) for a couple seconds after you put in Park and release the brake. But this happens in Pilots and Odysseys too. It is a quirk that annoys me.
Love this car!
Lots of cargo space, leg room and added features that didn't break the bank. Highly recommend this vehicle. First Honda I've ever owned! Definitely a keeper!
