2019 Honda Passport Wins Car and Driver Midsize Two-Row SUV Vehicle Comparison Test
The all-new 2019 Honda Passport bested four midsize two-row SUV competitors in Car and Driver’s “Meat in the Middle” comparison test featured in the April 2019 edition of the magazine.
“Snappy shifts and the V-6’s 280 horsepower produced the best zero-to-60, quarter-mile, and 50-to-70 passing times in the group, even as the Passport earned the best observed fuel economy. And despite being the tallest competitor, the Honda still compelled us to drive it quickly, courtesy of its light, accurate steering and goes-where-it’s-pointed response… The Passport is a picture of pragmatic service largely thanks to enormous interior space. Its pillars are thin and pushed far away, its greenhouse is massive, and it provides the most cargo volume here. Not only is the room ample, but Honda makes the best use of it by incorporating creative small-item storage throughout. If you’re looking in the middle of crossover land for some real meat, the Passport has the most to offer.”
Honda offers a full line of reliable, fuel-efficient and fun-to-drive vehicles with advanced safety technologies sold through over 1,000 independent U.S. Honda dealers.
