New 2021 Honda Passport for Sale in Edmonton, AB
The new 2021 Passport is a two-row midsize crossover SUV that sits in the middle of the current Honda SUV lineup.
The 2021 Passport is a refined crossover that's great on the road but is also suitable for a bit of moderate off-roading, the interior is pleasingly spacious and there's an impressive amount of standard safety kit. The Passport is a vehicle that's just as comfortable outside a Regina clubhouse as it is on the school run and it's also up for a trip into the mountains.
A spaciously compact lineup
Some manufacturers can be guilty of bewildering buyers with model ranges that are so expansive it can be hard to find the right version for the right person. Honda has kept things pretty simple with the 2021 Passport as there are just three straightforward trim levels to choose between. The entry model is the Passport Sport, the mid-range model is the EX-L and the top-of-the-range version is the Touring. Buyers don’t even have to worry about whether to go to the extra expense of all-wheel-drive either as all 2021 Passport models are standard AWD.
Although the Passport is possibly closer in size to the Honda SUV below it in the current range than it is to the one above it, the Passport has a more abrupt and stubby rear-end than the Honda's larger models and it also features a more aggressive front fascia courtesy of a meaner grille. The Passport is a handsome crossover that's probably a little more conservative than Honda's smaller SUV.
A capable and talented performer
Most SUVs today have to be able to deliver the goods in a wide range of driving conditions, from the smooth pavement of Gateway Boulevard to the tracks and trails of Elk Island National Park and everywhere in between. It's therefore no good just being a hardcore off-roader or a smooth highway cruiser; most SUVs have to be all-rounders and that's exactly what the 2021 Honda Passport is.
A single powertrain is used across the Passport lineup but it's a seriously capable and versatile one that can handle a wide range of different driving conditions. The engine under the hood of every model is a 3.5-litre V-6 that puts out 280 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft. of torque which is sent to all four wheels through a nine-speed automatic transmission with Grade Logic Control.
Fuel economy ratings for the Passport come in at 12.5 L/100 km in the city, 9.8 L/100 km on the highway and 11.3 L/100 km combined.
Very safe, well-equipped and great value
Honda is generally pretty big on safety and the Passport is no exception. The midsize Honda gets a full five-star rating from the NHTSA and the IIHS has made it a Top Safety Pick. Every Passport comes with adaptive cruise control, active lane control, auto high beams, forward collision warning, a collision mitigation braking system, Trailer Stability Assist and more as part of the standard specification.
An entry-level Honda Passport Sport model's standard equipment also includes heated front seats, a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat, driver and passenger armrests, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, a rearview camera system, tri-zone automatic climate control, a one-touch power moonroof and 20-inch alloy wheels. This supposedly 'base' model also comes with an 8.0-inch touchscreen Bluetooth infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
That may sound like the specification sheet for a mid-range or even a range-topping model, so you can imagine how well equipped the EX-L and Touring models are.
