2021 Honda Passport for Sale in North Attleboro, MA
The 2021 Honda Passport is designed for adventure. This two-row crossover is sized between the compact CR-V and three-row Pilot, so it represents the perfect middle ground. The latest iteration receives a handful of small but notable updates. The base trim now comes with a standard 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, replacing the 5-inch non-touchscreen unit that preceded it. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also now standard on the base trim.
Trims and Powertrain
The 2021 Honda Passport is more than just a more compact alternative to the popular Pilot: it’s a rugged, trail-ready five-seater with more ground clearance (7.5 inches for front-wheel-drive versions and 8.1 inches with all-wheel drive) than its larger sibling. While these two Honda utility vehicles have a lot in common – starting with their drivetrain – they have distinct personalities. The Pilot is aimed toward families (or anyone who needs three rows of seating and room for a lot of stuff), but the Passport appeals more to adventurous singles or anyone who prefers that look and feel.
There are four trim levels of the 2021 Honda Passport on offer: Sport, EX-L, Touring, and Elite. Their 3.5-liter V6 makes 280 hp and 262 lb.-ft. of torque and is matched to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard in the Sport, EX-L, and Touring, with AWD available; AWD is standard in the Elite. Any of the four will be a solid choice for weekend getaways, as AWD Passports can tow up to 5,000 pounds, and FWD Passports can pull up to 3,500 lb. If you’re interested in narrowing down which Passport trim is ideal for you, read on for the details.
The Sport is the entry-level trim, but that doesn’t mean it’s not stacked with standard equipment, such as LED headlights, fog lights, and tri-zone automatic climate control. It also boasts push-button start, traction control drive modes, a front console USB audio interface, a center console USB charge port, front and center console 12-volt power outlets, a multi-angle rearview camera with guidelines, rear privacy glass, and a one-touch fold-down 60/40 split-folding rear seatback.
The infotainment system is controlled by a now-standard 8-inch touchscreen, and it features standard smartphone integration (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, and a seven-speaker sound system. On the safety front, the Honda Sensing suite of active driver aids is also standard, adding collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, lane keeping assist, adaptive cruise control, and automatic high beams.
The EX-L ramps up its standard features list with amenities, starting with heated side mirrors with position memory, reverse tilt-down, and integrated turn-signal indicators. Everyone loves a moonroof, and the power liftgate and Walk Away Auto Lock (a convenient security system that locks the doors in case you forget) both add convenience. This trim’s active-safety bundle is improved with a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert and dynamic (rather than fixed) guidelines for the multi-angle rearview camera. It also gets an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, leather seats (heated and power-adjustable in the front row, with two-position memory for the driver), a front console smartphone/USB audio interface, two second-row USB charging ports, and a 12-volt power outlet in the cargo area. The upgraded infotainment system has hands-free texting, SiriusXM satellite , and HD radio. EX-L buyers will also get CabinControl, a smartphone app that allows passengers to manipulate things like audio and climate settings from their mobile device.
The Touring ups the luxury and convenience factors with power-folding and auto-dimming side mirrors, a hands-free liftgate, acoustic front- and rear-door glass, roof rails, front and rear parking sensors, white ambient interior lighting, illuminated beverage holders, heated rear outboard seats, an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot, integrated navigation with voice recognition, a 115-volt power outlet, and an upscale 10-speaker sound system.
High-end standard equipment helps the Elite live up to its moniker. That list includes rain-sensing windshield wipers, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, ventilated front seats, and wireless smartphone charging. As mentioned in the intro, it also comes standard with all-wheel drive.
The base Sport comes with plenty of attractive features, led by keyless entry and push-button ignition, tri-zone automatic climate control, a one-touch fold-down 60/40 split rear seat, a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, and LED headlights, fog lights, and taillights. The EX-L adds heated side mirrors with integrated turn-signal indicators and memory function, a sunroof, a power tailgate, illuminated vanity mirrors, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and power-adjustable leather-upholstered heated front seats (memory functions for driver’s seat). The Touring supplies automatic LED headlights, power-folding side mirrors, a hands-free tailgate, roof rails, white ambient interior lighting, illuminated beverage holders, and heated rear outboard seats. At the peak of the trim range, the Elite trim provides rain-sensing windshield wipers, a heated steering wheel, a wireless phone charger, and ventilated front seats.
