When it comes to mid-size SUVs, there aren’t many that can match the brand-new 2021 Honda Passport. One of Honda’s most popular models, the latest iteration of the Passport, may just be the best yet.
Let’s take an in-depth look at why the 2021 Honda Passport takes the driver experience to the next level.
2021 Honda Passport Overview
In the grand scheme of things, not a lot has changed from the 2020 Honda Passport to the 2021 Honda Passport. There were some updates to the pricing across the various trim levels, although the amount is nearly negligible.
However, the key one callout in the “what’s new” department is the upgraded 8” infotainment touchscreen. With the 2020 Honda Passport, a low-tech 5” display came standard, with the aforementioned 8” touchscreen display available with higher trim levels. Now, the 2021 Honda Passport has made the updated interface standard.
Whether you’re driving around town or taking the passport camping, the standard 8” display will make life that much easier for drivers and passengers alike.
The base model is the Sport, which features the 8” infotainment display, the Honda Sensing safety suite, remote engine start, and 20” alloy wheels. Next up is the EX-L, which comes equipped with a power moonroof, more safety features, leather-trimmed seats and a power tailgate.
The third-highest trim is the Touring, featuring a 10-speaker premium audio system, front and rear parking sensors, roof rails and WiFi hotspot capabilities. Finally, the top-of-the-line trim is the Elite, offering exciting features like a wireless charging pad, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and a heated steering wheel.
No matter your budget or desired level of luxury, there’s a trim level of the 2021 Honda Passport for you.
