Debuting the 2019 Honda Passport


Thanks to Honda automaker’s newest entry you no longer need a passport to feel like you’re traveling far away from the Chesapeake and Virginia Beach, VA areas. That’s because our favorite automaker here at Hall Honda Virginia Beach just debuted the all-new 2019 Honda Passport.

The 2019 Honda Pilot is a midsize SUV that takes several cues from the popular Honda Pilot. This five-passenger off-roader is the latest entry into the automaker’s off-road market, and it sits between the 2019 Honda CR-V and Honda Pilot.

Ultimately, the Honda Passport is an attractive, stout SUV sitting on the same platform that underpins the Honda Ridgeline. With a high ground clearance, shorter rear overhang, and scratch resistant materials, this SUV is meant to go off-road.

Powering the all-new Honda Passport is a sizeable 3.5-liter V6 engine that puts out 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Most models offer either front or all-wheel drive, except the 2019 Honda Passport Elite trim which only offers all-wheel drive. Each trim also comes standard with 20-inch wheels.

If you like the look of this new Honda SUV and are concerned about on-road dynamics and feel, don’t worry. According to Honda general manager Henio Arcangeli Jr., "The all-new 2019 Honda Passport provides the on-road comfort and nimble handling buyers will appreciate on their daily commute with the robust off-road and all-weather capability that make for a great weekend adventure vehicle." So, whether you’re staying in the Virginia Beach, VA area or taking it out for an adventure, you’ll always enjoy modern comfort.
