Overview

What's New

The 2022 Honda Passport crossover receives freshened styling and a new trim called TrailSport which capitalizes on the off-road-themed trend.

Choosing Your Honda Passport

The 2022 Passport is available in three trim levels, the EX-L, TailSport, and Elite. Prices range from $39,095 to $46,655.

Engine Choices

The Passport keeps it simple with a single powertrain offering, a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. It is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters that sends power to the front wheels, while a true torque-vectoring all-wheel-drive system with terrain management is available for $2,100 on the EX-L and standard on the other trims.

The front-wheel-drive Passport earns an EPA-estimated 20 miles per gallon city, 25 mpg highway, and 22 combined. The all-wheel-drive models see those figures reduced by one mpg across the board.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Passport seats five and stretches to 189 inches in length, sits 78.6 inches wide, and stands 72.2 inches tall - about seven inches shorter than its three-row platform-mate, the Honda Pilot and nearly three inches wider than Toyota’s five-passenger Venza hybrid.

Inside, the Passport offers a generous 39.6 inches of second-row legroom and 41.2 cubic feet of space which grows to 77.7 cubic feet with the seatbacks folded. That is more legroom and cargo space than the larger Jeep New Grand Cherokee. The Passport’s 8.1 inches of ground clearance is an inch more than the off-road themed GMC Acadia AT4 trim.

The Passport is rated to tow 3,500 pounds or 5,000 pounds when equipped with all-wheel drive - plenty for hauling around Honda ATVs and dirt bikes.

Safety Features

The Passport is equipped with the full suite of active safety technology such as automatic emergency braking, blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, automatic high beams, front and rear parking sensors, and a rear-seat reminder system which is new for 2022. The Elite trim adds rain-sensing wipers.

The Honda earns a five-star overall rating from NHTSA and mostly Good ratings for crashworthiness (Acceptable for passenger-side narrow off-set) and an Advanced (mid-level) rating for its vehicle-to-vehicle collision avoidance performance.

Connectivity

All Passports are equipped with an eight-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM, and HD Radio compatibility. The EX-L trim features a seven-speaker (with a subwoofer) 215-watt stereo that is upgraded to 10-speakers and 540-watts in the Elite trim which also gains a Wi-Fi hotspot and remote connectivity.

There are a total of four USB ports, three 12-volt outlets, and a wireless charging mat on all trims while the TrailSport and Elite trims gain a 115-volt power outlet.

2022 Honda Passport Elite - MSRP From $46,655

The Elite trim features uniquely styled 20-inch wheels, a hands-free power tailgate, auto-dimming mirrors with courtesy lighting, acoustic side glass, ventilated front seats and heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, and white ambient lighting.

Cargo Space Over A Third Row. The 2022 Honda Passport is a midsize SUV that seats up to five people across two rows. While that gives the Passport less versatility than others in the segment that can seat up to eight or seven, it lets the SUV focus on having an expansive cargo area.

With the rear seats in place, the Passport offers 41.2 cubic feet of cargo space. In total, the Passport has up to 77.7 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats folded. That’s one of the largest figures of any two-row SUV.

Additionally, without having to squeeze three rows of seats into a midsize body, the Passport has roomy seating for all five passengers. Honda fits the Passport with supportive, well-cushioned seats that remain comfortable during a long road trip. Passengers will find a large amount of headroom and legroom in both rows, while the cabin remains quiet at highway speeds.

The issue with the Passport is that its interior offers roughly the same amount of space as the smaller and cheaper Honda CR-V. The Passport doesn’t have the same high-quality materials or striking design as other options in the segment, too.

Brimming With Safety Features. Honda offers nearly every advanced safety feature imaginable with the Passport. Furthermore, all of these features come standard on the midsize SUV. Even things like blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control, which are usually optional, are standard on the Passport. This is hugely impressive.

In crash-testing, the Passport earned a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA. The IIHS hasn’t fully crash-tested the 2022 model yet, but the 2021 model missed out on an award because of its “Acceptable” rating in the passenger-side small overlap front test and “Acceptable” rated headlights.

Honda Passport

Composed On-Road Performance. While the Passport has a rugged design, the midsize SUV is at its best when it’s on-road. Unlike other midsize SUVs in the class, the Passport features a standard 3.5-liter V6 engine that’s rated at 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. That’s above average for the segment and plenty of grunt for a vehicle of this size.

Where the Passport really shines is on the highway. With a smooth ride and powerful V6 engine, the SUV is a skilled highway cruiser. Around corners, the Passport also offers better handling than the majority of its classmates with well-weighted steering and limited body roll. For shoppers that never plan to take the Passport off-road, the SUV will continually impress.

The nine-speed automatic transmission can be slow at times to deliver downshifts, but this isn’t a large issue if you spend the majority of your time driving on the highway or on curvy backroads.

Not As Rugged As Advertised. From the outside, the Passport looks like it’s ready to tackle some serious terrain. It has beefy body cladding, a chunky grille, and tough bumpers. The SUV also has 8.1 inches of ground clearance for models with all-wheel drive (AWD) and a few off-driving modes to choose from. But the Passport is missing a few features, like a transfer case, a four-wheel-drive system, lockable axles, and heavy-duty skid plates to be a true off-roader.

For the 2022 model year, Honda has introduced a new TrailSport trim for the Passport lineup. The SUV is supposed to be the most rugged offering of the bunch, but is more of a good-looking body kit. It adds 18-inch wheels, upgraded tires, orange accents, a special grille, and a wider track. Without any serious upgrades to the suspension, powertrain, and AWD system, the TrailSport isn’t a vehicle we recommend for people that want to hit the trails.

Final Thoughts. People are going to be drawn to the 2022 Honda Passport because of its advertised off-roading capability. Unfortunately, its so-so off-roading capability is a disappointment. Instead, it’s a spacious, comfortable, and well-equipped SUV that’s practical.

For a true midsize SUV that can go off-roading, you’ll want to check out the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Not only can the Grand Cherokee go off-roading, but it has an upscale cabin, a premium design, and an available V8 engine. It also has more impressive tech features than the Passport.

The Hyundai Santa Fe isn’t as powerful as the Passport, but it’s available with fuel-efficient powertrains, has a comfortable ride, is a strong value option, and is available with high-tech features. It’s just as practical and comfortable as the Passport without the faux ruggedness.
