2024 Honda Passport Overview

What’s new

  • The TrailSport chassis and tires are made to be used off-road.
  • It takes the place of last year’s Elite trim with the Black Edition trim.
  • A part of the third version of passports, which will be released in 2019.

The 2024 Honda Passport is like the typical middle child. Its bigger siblings, the three-row Pilot, and its popular smaller crossover sister, the CR-V, make it stand out more. The five-passenger, two-row Passport is similar to both in a lot of ways: it’s big but quick, rough but smooth. But it also has its place in the market. The all-terrain tires and path-specific handling on the 2024 TrailSport model make it even more different from the Passport. Honda says the TrailSport’s tires and suspension have been improved this year to give users better off-road grip.

It would help if you had a visa. Just hearing the word makes me laugh and feel antsy. Honda’s intermediate SUV, the Pilot, is meant to make people feel the same way the smaller CR-V does, but it’s smaller and easier to drive than the three-row Pilot. The Passport is a great option for young families or couples who like to travel or do things outside. It has two rows of seats and can hold a lot of luggage. All-wheel drive is built into the Passport so that it can handle rough surfaces like dirt, snow, or ice. The smaller Passport has the same strong V6 engine that powers the bigger Pilot. This engine can pull up to 5,000 pounds. With a total gas mileage of 21 mpg, it’s also not too expensive.

The Subaru Outback isn’t really an SUV; it’s more of an adventure car. The Outback can handle a lot of terrain because it comes with all-wheel drive and has half an inch more ground clearance than the Honda. You could also look into the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport. It can hold about the same amount of stuff as the Passport and gets a lot of big improvements for 2024, like a normal 12-inch touchscreen in the middle. The luxurious Jeep Grand Cherokee and the tough Toyota 4Runner are two other choices.

What do they like to live with?

Invoice Pricing added a Honda Passport to its long-term test fleet so that we could get a full picture of what it’s like to own a car. We found out what worked (storage space and mobility) and what didn’t (safety features and entertainment, spoiler alert) over a year. All of our experiences are detailed in our Honda Passport long-term test. We looked at a plan for 2019, but most of what we learned still applies to 2024.


  • Strong V6 engine.
  • It comes with four-wheel drive.
  • Inside, there is room for comfy seats.
  • Parts for storage that take up little room and a big area for moving goods.


  • Driver-aid technology that hasn’t been fully developed.
  • Technology that regularly breaks down and glitches.

How does the Passport work? When it comes to driving on public roads, the Passport is better. The stock V6 engine gives great acceleration, and the nine-speed transmission makes changes smooth. Invoice Pricing found that it took 6.8 seconds to go from 0 to 60 mph, which is one of the fastest times in its class. Additionally, the Passport has better-than-average driving qualities. The SUV feels light and quick to turn because the steering is well-weighted.

But there is still room for growth. When driving normally, the brakes look solid and are easy to use, but when you press down hard on the stop pedal, it gives a little. In addition, there is a fall, which could make sudden stops seem scary.

How easy is it to carry the Passport? The Passport is a roomy and comfy car. The Passport rides a little rougher than the Honda Pilot, but its suspension system handles big body movements and small bumps just fine. The front chairs are wide and comfy, but they don’t offer much support. The chairs with backs that can be leaned back are also nice.

Our favorite thing about the Passport is how quiet the inside is—there is no wind or tire noise. There is good functionality in the heated and cooled seats and the three-zone climate control system. When you start the car, the seats know how they were set up before.

How is the state of the inside? The Passport’s bedroom is well-thought-out. There is a lot of space for your legs and head, and three people can sit easily in the back. Smaller people may need help getting in and out of the Passport because it sits a little higher than other options. However, the big door openings make this less of a problem. Outside, you can see very well in every direction.

The tablet for the entertainment system is bright and quick, making it easy to use. Adding buttons and knobs is a good way to add more controls and usefulness. Push-button shifters are new and save room, but they take some time to get used to.

What is there to do with technology? Most of the things you’d expect from a current piece of tech are in the Passport. The premium audio system that is offered sounds great and fills the cabin well. The navigation system instantly recognizes pinch and swipe movements. This makes it easy to zoom in on maps and turn them. Every Passport comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for simple smartphone connectivity. A lot of information is given about modern, high-tech driving assistance devices, almost all of which come as standard.

How is the storage situation right now? One thing that makes the Passport better than a smaller SUV is that it has a bigger trunk. The load height in the storage area is high. There is enough space to fit even very large kid safety seats that face backwards. Car seat anchors are readily available.

Inside, there are many shelves and nooks, as well as big door pockets and a smart spot in the center console for storing small items. The all-wheel-drive model can tow up to 5,000 pounds, which is the minimum for the class.

How well does the fuel work? The EPA says that the AWD Passport gets 21 mpg on the highway, which is about normal for midsize SUVs. On our real-world test route, we got about 22 mpg on average, which is about the same as what the EPA says.

Does the Passport have any value? For its class, the Passport is reasonably priced, but it feels like a steal because of its great materials and handiwork, roomy cabin, and smooth ride. The high-gloss black trim, matte-finish secondary controls, and soft-touch plastics inside the car make it look and feel good. There are a few gaps between the panels.

For five years or 60,000 miles, the engine is covered. For three years or 36,000 miles, the normal warranty and roadside assistance are covered. They need to be better for the class.

The Passport is a well-rounded and adaptable SUV that is a lot like its three-row sister, the Pilot. It’s easy to ride and has a great mix of comfort and power. Because it has a stronger front end and a more athletic stance, the Passport is also the most appealing Honda SUV.

Your use case will tell you how to move forward. The TrailSport is a great choice for people who like to do things outside. It costs a little more than the first EX-L but has navigation and a few other useful tools added. If not, the EX-L is still the only option that will save you money. Even though it’s the least expensive type, it still has high-end features like leather seats and heated front seats.

Models of the Honda Passport

There are three trim options for the 2024 Honda Passport: EX-L, TrailSport, and Black Edition. It comes with a 3.5-liter V6 engine that has 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque and is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel drive is standard.
