2020 Honda Passport: 3 Reasons Why it is the Best SUV in America

2020 Honda Passport - Dayton

A recent winner of Car and Driver’s 2019 Midsize Two-Row SUV test, the versatile Honda Passport proves that it’s more than just a ruggedly good-looking vehicle. Family vacation? Hop in your Passport. Couples’ camping excursion to the Dayton KOA Resort? Load up your Passport. A ski trip to the bunny slopes? You betcha: Honda’s newest SUV does it all.

You want reasons why the 2020 Passport should be in your driveway, like, yesterday? Ask and ye shall receive.

Storage Space

If the Honda Pilot is too large, and the CR-V is too small, you may very well find the Passport to be just right. In terms of both max cargo and passenger space, the 2020 Passport is lightyears ahead of most sporty midsize rivals. Take the ’20 Ford Edge as an example: Its 73.4-cubic-foot cargo area is a dwarf star compared to Passport’s supernova-like 100.8-cubic-foot* area.

When you need more room for smaller items, Passport’s trunk, cleverly hidden underneath the padded cargo floor, can be accessed with ease. And we’d be remiss not to point out the conveniently large cubby area within Passport’s center console. (Visit your Honda dealer and give it a try – seriously.)

Fun Features

Rich in cool features, the 2020 Passport EX-L is the ideal choice for tech-craving shoppers. Every EX-L comes standard with a large 8.0-inch touchscreen display, tri-zone climate, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, heated side mirrors, a one-touch power sunroof/moonroof, Wi-Fi, a power tailgate, heated front leather seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and even roof rails. The range-topping Passport Elite pushes the tech-y envelope with standard i-VTM AWD, wireless phone charging, cooled front seats, four USB ports, a heated steering wheel, premium audio, and rain-sensing wipers.

Perhaps our favorite feature – and a favorite amongst Passport-owning camping enthusiasts, we suspect – is the rear power console. It includes 2 USB charging ports and a handy 115-volt AC power outlet that can inflate a blow-up mattress, power an electric griddle, illuminate the campsite with string lights – you get the picture.

5-Star Safety

An IIHS Top Safety Pick and earner of a 5-star safety rating by the NHTSA, Honda’s 2020 Passport is fully equipped with 21st-century driver-assist and safety tech.
