What's New

The 2021 Honda Passport rolls on with only one minor change. The base trim now gets the same 8-inch infotainment touchscreen as the rest of the lineup, complete with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone compatibility. Last year's base model only had a 5-inch non-touchscreen.

This is a welcome change, shoring up the value in an already formidable midsize SUV. The Passport is mechanically related to the three-row Honda Pilot, and although it’s 6 inches shorter and lacks a third row, the Passport is the wider and taller of the two.

Choosing Your Honda Passport

Like last year, the Passport comes in four trim levels: Sport, EX-L, Touring, and Elite. Prices start at $33,710 including destination for the base Sport model, while the Elite is priced from $45,100.

Engine Choices

All Passport models use a single engine, a 3.5-liter V6 making 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That’s above average for the class, with more power than competitors like the Ford Edge or Nissan Murano.

The engine teams up with a nine-speed automatic transmission, and with all-wheel drive (a $2,000 addition) it’s capable of towing up to 5,000 pounds. The Elite trim gets standard AWD.

Efficiency isn’t a standout: the EPA estimates that the Passport gets 20 miles per gallon city, 25 mpg highway, and 22 combined, or 19/24/21 mpg (city/highway/combined) with AWD. The Hyundai Santa Fe does better with 25 mpg combined.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Passport lacks a third row, which means that passenger capacity is capped at five. Cargo capacity is a strength, with 41.2 cubic feet behind the rear seats or almost 78 with them folded. That’s good for the class, and nearly as much as the larger Pilot.

Safety Features

The Passport starts with an impressive suite of safety technologies, including standard lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking. All except the base trim add blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, while the Touring adds parking sensors.

Crash test scores are equally favorable. The NHTSA gave it a five-star overall safety rating, while the IIHS declared last year’s model a Top Safety Pick, which should carry over.


Tech gets a much-needed upgrade in the Passport’s base trim this year. The Sport now equips an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen. The system is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and the front row gets two USB ports.

Touring and Elite trims get navigation, wi-fi hot spot capability, and two rear USB ports; the Elite adds a wireless charging pad.

Honda Passport

Sport - From $33,710

In addition to the new infotainment system, the Sport comes with remote start, keyless entry, and cloth upholstery. On the outside, 20-inch alloy wheels combine with fog lights and LED running lights for an adventurous look.

Honda likes to divide features by trim, rather than offering extra bundles. Various accessory packages dial up the look with roof rails and exposed fender flares, but there are otherwise no options or packages.

EX-L - From $37,730

The EX-L replaces the Sport’s cloth upholstery with leather and heats up the front row. Tech gets an upgrade, with standard blind-spot monitoring and a power liftgate. The heated side mirrors gain integrated turn signal,s and a power moonroof tops it all off.

Touring - From $40,600

The Passport Touring pushes into luxury territory with heated rear seats, LED headlights, and a premium sound system. The infotainment system gets a boost from navigation, wi-fi capability, and two more USB ports in the second row. Front and rear parking sensors add peace of mind, and a hands-free tailgate adds convenience.

Elite - From $45,100

The Passport Elite pulls out all the stops, including wireless charging, perforated leather upholstery, and ventilated front seats. The exterior gets rain-sensing wipers and auto-dimming and power-folding side mirrors.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2021 Honda Passport EX-L is our pick for value. It’s around $40,000 with all-wheel drive, and the added features are worth the price bump from the Sport.

Plays an adventurous crossover on TV. The Honda Passport returned in 2019 after 16-year hiatus. This time, though, it’s removed the Isuzu Rodeo DNA it had in previous generations. The Passport is now a downsized clone of the popular three-row Honda Pilot.

The 2021 Honda Passport is propped up as the most adventurous crossover in the brand's lineup, which isn’t hard to do considering the options are the Honda CR-V or the aforementioned people-hauling Pilot.

Haul all the gear, but the interior doesn’t match up well. Inside, the Passport leaves you craving little in terms of space. It boasts 39.6 inches of rear leg room, 41.2 cubic feet of cargo room with the rear seats upright, and up to 77.9 cubic feet with the rear seats folded.

So, whether it’s a week’s worth of camping gear or the team’s equipment for the big game, the Passport can handle it. Only the Toyota 4Runner separates itself from the Passport at 47.2 cubic feet of space with the second row in place and 89.7 with it folded down.

The big issue is the Passport’s interior isn’t much roomier than the smaller and cheaper CR-V, which beats the Passport with 40.4 inches of rear leg room and nips its heels with 39.2 or 75.8 cubic feet of cargo space.

While not cheap by any stretch, the Passport's cabin lacks the refinement of the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Instead of boasting acres of soft-touch materials and leathers, the Passport opts for cheaper plastics here and there, especially in the rear seats.

Honda Passport

Smooth on-road chops, but stay off the trails. The Honda Passport is a smooth roller on the pavement, and its uncomplicated all-wheel-drive system is perfect for mild adventures. This matches most buyers’ needs.

That said, Honda markets the Passport as its more adventurous model. This is true when you consider its siblings include the Honda Odyssey, Honda Ridgeline, and Pilot, but it lacks the off-road chops of the Grand Cherokee, 4Runner, and Ford Bronco. These models can handle rutted trails the Passport couldn’t touch.

Standard safety tech is on point, and new tech brings it into this century. Honda doesn’t take safety lightly, as the Passport boasts a full array of advanced safety gear. This equipment includes forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, road departure mitigation, lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, and more.

Most competitors at least match its standard automatic emergency braking. However, the Grand Cherokee and Chevrolet Blazer don’t, giving the Passport a significant advantage over them.

The Passport once fell flat was its standard infotainment system, which included a 5-inch non-touchscreen infotainment system sans Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. In 2021, however, the Passport replaced this Smithsonian-worthy system with a standard 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. This matches the 4Runner and Blazer and beats the Grand Cherokee by an inch.

Final thoughts. The 2021 Honda Passport is a smooth-riding crossover with so-so off-road chops and loads of space. However, at $33,710 including destination, it’s a high-cost option in a crowded market. Plus, it’s only marginally roomier than its CR-V sibling, which starts from $26,270.

The Passport is a fair, albeit vanilla, option for buyers seeking a V6-powered crossover and need all the room they can get. For buyers wanting a rig with more off-road chops, the 4Runner and Bronco are far better off the beaten path. The 4Runner also has a more rugged look to match these off-road abilities. Buyers seeking something more upscale will find it in the Grand Cherokee.
