5 reasons to buy the 2021 Honda Passport

1. Ideal for adventuring

The 2021 Honda Passport is made for adventure. Not only does it have 8.1 inches of ground clearance, making it ideal for traversing rough terrain, but it's also agile on many surfaces, and the well-made cabin dampens most imperfections in the road. Strong brakes and responsive steering add to the effect, giving you full control no matter the environment. The Passport can also tow an estimated 5,000 lbs with the V6 engine (when properly equipped), so taking a trailer filled with your family's mountain bikes and camping gear for a weekend in the country is a cinch.

2. Powerful engine

Supporting the adventurous nature of the 2021 Honda Passport is its powerful engine. Each trim of the Passport has a 3.5L V6 engine delivering 280 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque. It has a nine-speed automatic transmission and enough grunt for overtaking on the highway, commuting around the city, or rumbling over rocks in the mountains. 2021 Honda Passport models with AWD get an EPA-estimated 21 combined mpg with the V6 engine.

3. Lots of driver aids

Sturdiness is a top priority in this vehicle, as is fairly obvious from the bulky-yet-sleek exterior look of the 2021 Honda Passport. It has a long list of standard driver aids, including a rearview camera, automatic emergency braking, automatic high-beam headlights, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, and stop-and-go adaptive cruise control. Other available driver aids include blind spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors, and rear cross-traffic alert—so there's no need to worry about you or your passengers on your journey.

4. Modern features made standard

Standard features of the 2021 Honda Passport include a seven-speaker stereo, Bluetooth® connectivity, and USB ports. New for the 2021 Passport is a standard eight-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto integration. This is great if you love the convenience of connecting your phone to your vehicle, with entertainment and data readily available while you drive.

5. Refined cabin

In addition to being robust enough to ensure noise and jarring motions don't make it inside, the cabin of the 2021 Honda Passport is sophisticated and good-looking. The interior design is sharp and sleek, with plenty of soft plastics and high-end materials. It's an interior that looks far plusher than the price tag might suggest.
