2019 Honda Passport: An All-New SUV Takes a Familiar Name


The Honda Motor Company has been reaching into its past when the time came to name some of its recent models. The latest example of this is the 2019 Honda Passport. The name may be a throwback, but everything else about this new Honda SUV - available now at Gillman Honda San Antonio - is very forward-looking.

2019 Honda Passport Details

In its new form, the 2019 Honda Passport seats five. It's larger than the Honda CR-V, and smaller - though not that much smaller - than the Honda Pilot. That's a good thing for anyone looking for more passenger volume, but not needing third-row seating.

Even though it shares a platform and engine with the Honda Pilot, it's proportioned differently. Outside, that makes for a more aggressive look, while it means more room for your passengers and their stuff inside.

Another feature worthy of note is the all-wheel drive system, called i-VTM4. It provides intelligent traction management (which can be dialed in depending what you're driving on) and makes great use of the added ground clearance the Honda Passport offers.

2019 Honda Passport Safety and Special Features

The Honda Passport is engineered for safety from bumper to bumper. With Honda Sensing safety features standard across all trim levels, you can drive with confidence knowing you and your passengers are safe.

Each of the four trim levels (Sport, EX-L, Touring, and Elite) comes well-equipped, but some of the available optional features are real attention-grabbers. One is a series of small bins that can be concealed under the floor in the cargo area for added storage. Upper trims get Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support via a larger infotainment display, and the top trims come with wireless charging and a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Buying a 2019 Honda Passport near San Antonio, TX

On paper, the 2019 Honda Passport seems to occupy an odd spot among the new Honda SUVs at Gillman Honda San Antonio. It makes a lot more sense from behind the wheel, or from the passenger's seat. This is an SUV with a lot to offer beyond its ample space and handsome looks.
