The Honda Passport is the rugged little brother of the Honda Pilot. It's a mid-size 5-passenger SUV that is particularly appreciated for its handling and comfortable interior.

Your Honda Canada dealer presents the 2023 Honda Passport, its engine, its interior and design as well as its on-board technologies.

2023 Honda Passport: A Large but Dynamic SUV

At the heart of the 2023 Passport is the same standard engine as the Pilot. It's a proven 3.5-litre V6 that develops 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. It's mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission and the i-VTM4 all-wheel-drive system, designed for off-roading.

The mid-size SUV succeeds in being both rugged and agile. As Honda Passport reviews state:

"The Passport excels behind the wheel. The Pilot's V6 is quick, provides excellent acceleration [...]. The handling with all-wheel drive is reassuring and the steering is precise."

Benoit Charette, L'Annuel de l'Automobile 2023

Wondering which is the best mid-size SUV? According to RPM, the answer has been unequivocal for several years: among the two-row models, the Honda Passport takes the lead. Among the arguments in its favor, its 5000 lb towing capacity and its comfortable interior make it stand out from the crowd.

Honda Passport Interior: Comfort for Five

Inside the Passport, you'll find plenty of room for five passengers. And it keeps you warm on cold winter days thanks to its heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel and standard heated front seats.

With the TrailSport and Touring,the rear seats are also heated! The upholstery is also leather-trimmed with these versions. On all models, the three-zone automatic climate control system keeps everyone comfortable in summer and winter. With the Touring version, the front passengers also benefit from ventilated seats.

Special attention is given to the driver, who gets a standard 10-way power seat with lumbar support.

Honda SUV: A Rugged and Utilitarian Design

The best thing about the Honda Passport interior is not only its comfort, but also its space, especially the one reserved for cargo. You'll never worry about running out of room with its 1,430 liters of trunk space. In fact, you can free up to 2,854 liters of cargo space! Plus, your job is made much easier with features like:

  • A 60/40 split folding bench seat

  • An underfloor compartment

  • A power tailgate

  • Hands-free tailgate (Touring)

The hands-free tailgate allows you to open the tailgate with a simple foot movement, when your hands are busy! Roof rails allow you to carry more gear, like bikes or a kayak.

As mentioned, the Honda Passport towing capacity is 5000 lbs. What's more, the trailer hitch is standard, so it is all set for your adventures. And its 18- to 20-inch tires are also ready for a wide variety of terrain.

Technology that Protects You with Honda Sensing

Safety is a top priority on the 2023 Passport, which is why the manufacturer has incorporated advanced driver assistance technologies. With the Honda Sensing package, you get, among other things:

  • Forward collision warning system

  • Emergency braking

  • Lane Departure Warning

  • Lane keeping assist system

Consequently, the Honda SUV helps you drive with peace of mind. Of course, the infotainment technologies are also part of the fun on board! An 8-inch touchscreen gives you access to your Apple and Android apps. Siri and text messaging are also standard features.

As an option, you can also access wireless charging, a 10-speaker audio system, and a Wi-Fi hotspot, just to name a few!
