The Honda Passport Does Wonderfully on Its Comeback Trail

In recent years, the Honda Passport has been on a hot comeback trail. After a two-decade absence, the Passport has dazzled many around Carson City with its balanced ride and handling, strong V6 engine, and roomy cabin. The Passport is available in Sport, EX-L, Touring, and Elite trim levels.

The new Honda Passport has a great amount of power on the road, thanks to its 280-horsepower 3.5-liter V6. The nine-speed automatic transmission to which it is attached has a smooth driving feel, and the included paddle shifters provide more operational convenience. For those who want absolute dominance over slippery surfaces, there's the optional all-wheel drive.

Generally, the Passport drives well; the suspension includes well-tuned dampers for a cushioned feel, and the steering is engaging. Also, for a V6-powered vehicle, the Passport doesn't do too shabbily in fuel economy: at up to 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.

The Passport borrows interior design cues from its larger relative, the Honda Pilot. It's a smaller SUV with Pilot-level quality-top-notch fit and finish that includes an aesthetically pleasing dashboard and center console for a comfortable ride around Sparks. The ample total interior volume peaks at 157.1 cubic feet-that is, if you get the Sport.

Most recently, Honda introduced an 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration as standard infotainment features on the Passport.

These features join an already robust list that includes seven speakers, two USB ports and an audio jack, and Bluetooth hands-free phone calling and audio streaming. Access and engine starting is a breeze with proximity keyless entry, push-button engine start, and remote engine start. Driver safety aid is substantial with the Honda Sensing suite of technologies, consisting of adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning and lane-keeping assist, auto high beam technology, collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, and forward-collision warning. You will have peace of mind while driving on the roads of Reno and beyond.
