2020 Honda Passport SUV Features and Specs

2020 Honda Passport | Mel Rapton Honda

The 2020 Honda Passport might be only the second model year of this midsize crossover SUV, but this isn't the first Honda Passport. The nameplate was previously in production between 1993 and 2002, but this one shares nothing with the previous version of these Honda SUVs other than the name. So, let's have a look at some of the 2020 Passport's features and specifications.

Exterior styling

For a two-row crossover, the 2020 Honda Passport is reasonably long, and only around six inches shorter than the larger Pilot model that it's based upon. The proportions work extremely well with the familiar Honda front fascia, and it gives the Passport a slightly sportier look than its bigger brother.

Trim levels

The Passport model lineup is reasonably compact with just four trim levels making up the 2020 range. The entry-level model in the Passport family is the Sport, and then we have the EX-L, Touring, and the top-of-the-range Elite. The Sport, EX-L and Touring are all standard rear-wheel-drive with all-wheel-drive available, but the range-topping Elite model is standard all-wheel-drive.


Every version of the Passport uses the same engine and transmission, but that's not a problem as the combination Honda has chosen for this model is more than adequate for this particular model and what owners are likely to ask from it. The engine in question is a 3.5-liter V-6 that puts out 180 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque, which is sent to the rear or all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission. All models also sit on 20-inch wheels, which are not always the natural footwear for off-roading but don’t be fooled. The Passport is more than capable off-road, which is more than can be said of some rivals.

Features and equipment

The entry-level Passport Sport certainly covers the basic features and equipment expectations with 20-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, Honda's Intelligent Traction Management system, the Honda Sensing suite of safety features, cargo area underfloor storage compartments, remote start, Smart Entry, push-button start, automatic high-beam headlights, LED daytime running lights and fog lights, dual exhaust finishers and rear privacy glass.

Step up to the EX-L and you then add the likes of leather-trimmed seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto compatibility, a one-touch power moonroof, heated front seats, a power tailgate, and a 10-way powered driver's seat with memory function.

The Touring trim then adds a hands-free access power tailgate, satellite navigation, a premium 10-speaker audio system with subwoofer, heated rear outboard seats, Wi-Fi hotspot capability, automatic on/off LED headlights, leather upholstery, front and rear parking sensors, and ambient LED interior lighting.

Elite models build on the Touring trim with features such as Intelligent Variable Torque Management, standard all-wheel-drive, wireless phone charging, perforated front seats that are heated and ventilated, a heated steering wheel, rain-sensing wipers, and a household-style power plug.
