2019 Honda Passport Shines in Car & Driver SUV Comparison Test
Car and Driver magazine recently took a close look at the emerging midsize crossover class to check out how these two-row SUVs stack up against each other. In looking at new models like the 2019 Honda Passport, Chevrolet Blazer, Ford Edge, Nissan Murano, and Hyundai Santa Fe, the esteemed car review magazine found a lot of points in favor of the newest member of the Honda SUV family.
All of these tested SUVs share several traits, filling in the latest niche in the SUV field. Each of these models is a non-luxury SUV with prices that range between $40,000 to $51,000 and come with modern perks and features. They also all offer seating for five passengers, leaving lots of room for cargo space in the rear. The 2019 Honda Passport, which shares a platform with the slightly larger three-row Pilot, was tested with an Elite model against other top-of-the-line SUVs to see how it compares after a long hiatus. These vehicles would be test-driven and judged on their driving enjoyment, interior space and comfort, infotainment interface, and more.
When lined up against the competition, the 2019 Honda Passport took the first-place honors*** in the Car and Driver contest! The Passport was praised for being “Big on space, small from behind the wheel, quick, priced right” starting at $24,350*. It also garnered praise for its driving enjoyment, from its competent body control to its impressive 32 highway MPG**. The Passport exemplifies the capability and versatility that customers need in an SUV, and it delivers excellent features from its features to its powertrain. Car and Driver remarked on its impressive interior space and comfort, including how pragmatic this SUV is due to its spacious build. Overall, the editors at Car and Driver named it “The best combination of utility and driving pleasure also comes with a reasonable price tag.”
