The Honda Passport is a fighter against off-road driving, so the appearance of the car got more than brutal.
It is worth paying attention to the front bumper – this is an aggressive composition, where the lower edge is occupied by a narrow oblong air intake and fog optics. Paired blocks are positioned as close to the road as possible to cut through the fog as effectively as possible, providing visibility. The lower part of the bumper is unpainted plastic, which emphasizes the readiness to overcome off-road conditions.
The rear of the Passport has a triangular shape of lights and a bumper. It is equipped with additional optical elements and a rough overlay of unpainted plastic — it harmoniously complements the modest body kit. The use of durable materials with a rough texture in the exterior will protect the body when traveling on a desert, rocky terrain.
The car is assembled only in a 5-seat version – the installation of additional passenger seats is not even optional.
The cabin has enough space for storing things, including cup holders and niches. The box located in the central tunnel is intended for storing large and small items.
The cabin of the car is quite spacious for adults. The driver’s seat is equipped to provide a panoramic view of the road, without losing control of the devices. There are no complaints about the quality of the finish — the elements are carefully adjusted, which eliminates annoying creaking.
When the rear seats are folded, the trunk volume increases to 1.7 thousand liters.
The digital dashboard is sunk into the shaft in front of the driver’s eyes. The four-spoke steering wheel in leather upholstery looks a little archaic. The controls focused on it don’t seem appropriate, don’t meet the requirements of modern design trends.
The multimedia system is controlled via a 5-inch touch screen. The fabric-covered seats are manually adjustable.
The crossover is equipped with a standard Honda Sensing package, which includes active cruise control, a function for tracking traffic within the lane, a frontal collision warning system, and monitoring of “blind” zones.
The crossover is produced in a modification with front-wheel drive (ground clearance — 198 mm), optionally equipped with rear wheel coupling (clearance increases to 213 mm). They redirect up to 70% of the power of the power unit back, if necessary, focus all the tractive effort on one wheel. The traction control Intelligent Traction Management offers 4 modes of driving. Traction is provided by an atmospheric V6 engine with a volume of 3.5 liters with a capacity of 280 HP and a torque of 355 Nm. 9-mode “automatic” controls the motor. This tandem is considered to be one of the best in the class of urban-type SUVs.
