Honda Passport Went On Sale in U.S.: Higher Priced Than Honda Pilot
An all-new 2019 Honda Passport crossover will begin to arrive at showrooms in the USA on February 4, 2019. A base model will cost from $31,990.
Interestingly, even in the initial configuration the Passport is a little more expensive than the larger Pilot. In brief, the newcomer has three main highlights:
1. Although the vehicle received a standard front-wheel drive, it is aimed at customers who like driving off highways to dirt roads and prefer to get out of greenhouse city conditions. A bicycle, a kayak, skis and snowboards – all they can be well fastened and placed.
2. A Honda i-VTM4 all-wheel-drive version is available too, as well as a powerful 3.5-liter i -VTEC® engine with 280hp of output. As a result, the Passport is not bad on easy off-road, and a 5000-pound tow will be pulled without any problems, even on dirt roads.
3. The Passport is fitted for those customers for whom the CR-V seems cramped, and the Pilot seven-seater is too large. Moreover, its off-road features are improved compared to those two. The Passport uses the only 9-speed automatic transmission.
The four-wheel-drive modification will cost about $2,000 more expensive than the two-wheel-drive one. The top-range version’s price is from $43,680.
