The familiar nameplate returned a couple of years ago as a completely new model. These days, it is still pretty fresh in most aspects, so it’s no wonder that the 2021 Honda Passport will come without more important changes. We are about to see a familiar design, which shares a lot of solutions with the bigger Pilot.
This means you may count on a well-designed, two-row mid-size crossover, which competes with models like Ford Edge, Hyundai Santa Fe, Chevy Blazer etc. It has several strong points that help it stand out from the crowd. Some of the things we should mention are refined engine, spacious cabin, lots of storage compartments and good overall interior quality. Considering that there are no bigger changes to come for the next year, we presume that the 2021 Honda Passport will hit the market sometime late in the year.
2021 Honda Passport Redesign
As we’ve just mentioned, the 2021 Honda Passport won’t bring any particular change. We are about to see a familiar design, which has been introduced a couple of years ago. Unlike the original Passport, the current model features a more contemporary design and comes as a typical crossover. However, the overall design feels a little bit more rugged compared to the competition, while the relatively high ground clearance ensures decent off-road performances as well.
When it comes to the styling, many potential buyers will definitely like the Passports SUV-ish stance. On the other side, the front end is largely the same as on Pilot, with slight differences in terms of grille and bumper layouts. As we already mentioned, the Japanese manufacturer plans no bigger changes for the next model year. Still, we won’t exclude the possibility to see 2021 Honda Passport with some new color options in the offer and similar tweaks.
Changes on the inside aren’t expected either. We are about to see a familiar cabin layout, which seems pretty good in many aspects. First of all, the overall interior quality is at a really high level. The dashboard design may look simplistic to some, but materials are really fine, as well as fit and finish. The cabin is well-built and looks quite opulent.
Besides great quality, this crossover offers plenty of space and a high level of comfort. Both rows of seats are generous in terms of space and can accommodate adults with ease. Also, the driving position is pretty high, like in a genuine SUV. Some drivers will like this, some won’t. On the other side, all drivers will like the fact that visibility is good in all directions.
When it comes to the cargo area, you may count on quite respectable numbers. This crossover offers around 41.2 cubic feet behind the second row, while the total cargo volume goes up to nearly 78 cubic feet.
When it comes to standard and available features, we could see a couple of novelties for the next year, but we also think that most of the things will remain the same. Therefore, the base model won’t be very generous with standard equipment. You may count on tech goodies like 5-inch display, Bluetooth, a USB port, a seven-speaker audio system, push-button start, and a proximity key. On the other side, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, an 8-inch touch screen, navigation, a 10-speaker premium audio system, satellite radio, HD Radio, two extra USB ports, wireless phone charging, and a Wi-Fi hot spot are reserved for higher trim levels.
Typically for Honda, the list of safety features is pretty long. All models will come standard with a rearview camera, automatic high-beam headlights, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and road departure mitigation.
2021 Honda Passport Engine
Under the hood, the 2021 Honda Passport will certainly carry on with the same V6 engine. Of course, we are talking about a well-known 3.5-liter unit, which is one of the best units in the class. It runs smoothly, while the amount of power is also quite sufficient. With around 280 horsepower, you may count on solid acceleration and pretty respectable overall performances. The engine comes coupled with a nine-speed automatic transmission, which also works pretty well.
When it comes to fuel economy, you may count on typical ratings for the class. This crossover returns around 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. Models with all-wheel-drive are slightly thirstier.
2021 Honda Passport Release Date and Price
Given the lack of changes, the 2021 Honda Passport will hit the market sometime late in the year. We don’t expect bigger changes in price, so base models should go around 33.000 dollars.
