Honda Passport Coming to Toronto Canada

An iconic Honda nameplate returns: presenting the Honda Passport Toronto drivers have been waiting for! Soon to be available here at Lakeshore Honda, The Passport arrives soon to fit into the Honda SUV line-up between the smaller CR-V and the slightly larger Pilot, while offering rugged off-road capability, power, and style in a perfectly sized package. You might remember the original Honda Passport as being based on an Isuzu SUV. This Passport is all Honda, though, from design through manufacture. It borrows elements of its engineering from the Honda Pilot, but it's smaller than the Pilot and ideal for drivers who don't need the Pilot's larger size and extra seating. The Passport is a more focused off-roader than its larger sibling, and yet it's equally comfortable as a daily commuter. Its styling, while rugged, is 100 percent distinctively Honda.


The Basics


The new Passport is a two-row, five-seater, mid-size SUV. It offers a choice of front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive for all weather, go-anywhere capability. It delivers up to 2,267 kg (5,000 lbs.) of towing capacity and the largest interior cargo capacity of any of its competitors at 2,205 litres with the rear seats folded. As a crossover SUV, it offers carlike ride and handling on-road to go with serious competence off-road. Power comes from a 3.5 litre i-VTEC V6 engine which pumps out 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. A 9-speed automatic transmission with a push-gear selector will come standard, the only one in its class. Four-wheel independent suspension offers a smooth ride plus ground clearance for off-road driving. An Intelligent Traction Management System offers Snow, Mud, and Sand modes, so you can be sure of this Passport's dirt-road bona fides.


Exterior Style


Honda is giving the Passport some striking styling elements. 20-inch wheels will be standard on all trim levels. EX-L and Touring models get silver wheels, while Sport and Elite models getting stunning gloss-black wheels. All-weather tires come standard on Sport and EX-L models and wider tires come on Elite and Touring levels. Two special appearance packages will also be available. The Adventure package adds wider fender flares, crossbars on the roof, and a trailer hitch. The Urban package provides distinctive trim and a different wheel design. All of the elements of both packages can also be ordered separately as Genuine Honda Accessories.


Technology


The Passport will include Honda Sensing Suite standard on all trim levels. This is a suite of safety tools that includes Forward Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, a Collision Mitigation Braking System, and much more. It also includes Adaptive Cruise Control, which can follow the vehicle in front of you at a pre-set distance, and LaneWatch Blind Spot Display. The Passport will also include a multi-angle rear view camera and an overhead view camera to make it easier to back up with a trailer attached.


When Can I Drive It?


The Passport should reach Canadian dealerships in early 2019. It's scheduled to make its Canadian debut at the 2019 Montreal Auto Show, which begins on January 18 and runs through the 27th. We may see our first models in the showroom shortly after that.
