The latest generation Honda Passport isn’t that old, the five-row midsize SUV was introduced in 2019 as the rugged and smaller version of the Pilot. For the 2021 model year, which is the SUV’s third one on the market, the Passport is getting some new features and a small increase in pricing.

The base Sport trim is the only one in the lineup that gets any new features. For 2021, the Sport now comes with the larger 8-inch touchscreen instead of last year’s 5-inch display. Additionally, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are now standard. Previously, smartphone compatibility wasn’t available on the Sport, as consumers had to go with the EX-L if they wanted either of the smartphone systems.

With the new features, pricing for the 2021 Passport Sport goes up by $600, as a front-wheel-drive (FWD) model is priced at $33,710 including destination. All-wheel drive (AWD) models are available for an additional $2,000 throughout the lineup.

Without any other changes throughout the Passport lineup, the rest of the line sees more modest increases in pricing. The EX-L, Touring, and Elite trims go up by $200. Here’s a quick rundown on prices: EX-L $33,730, Touring $40,600, and Elite $45,100. The Elite trim is the only Passport that comes with AWD as standard.

With the minor jump in pricing, the Passport continues to be one of the more expensive midsize SUVs with two rows of seating. The Passport costs more than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, Chevrolet Blazer, Ford Edge, and Nissan Murano. Honda’s option is still a strong value option, thanks to standard Honda Sensing and its 280-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 engine.
