Passport to off road adventure

Riley Riley

In the United States Honda has taken the wraps off its new Passport SUV, a five-seater that sits above the CR-V.

Designed and developed exclusively by Honda’s North America R&D teams in Torrance, California, and Raymond, Ohio, the Passport and its V6 engine will be manufactured at the company’s Lincoln, Alabama plant.

The all-new 2019 Honda Passport’s rugged exterior design and stance is highlighted by standard 20-inch wheels, a matte-black grille, floating roof design, aggressive wheel arches, increased ride height and a tailgate design that emphasises width.

Inside, Passport offers best-in-class passenger space and total interior volume for carrying family, friends and weekend adventure gear.

Passport features a best-in-class segmented underfloor cargo compartment for carrying dirty gear or keeping valuables out of sight.

It’s reinforced unibody frame supports a powerful direct-injected 3.5-litre i-VTEC V6 engine, fully independent suspension and nimble steering.

In addition, off-road capability is offered by the available Honda i-VTM4 torque-vectoring all-wheel drive and its four-mode Intelligent Traction Management system.

The bad news?

Honda Australia has no plans to introduce the Passport here.
