2021 Honda Passport Review

  • Spacious interior with lots of passenger space
  • Comfortable front seats
  • Many clever storage compartments
  • Adaptive cruise control is only available over 20 mph
  • Driver's seat might be positioned a little high for some people
  • All trims now have the 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard equipment
  • Part of the third Passport generation introduced for 2019

The best way to think of the 2021 Honda Passport is a Honda Pilot without the third row of seats. It's a bit easier to maneuver than the Pilot and offers more interior space than the smaller Honda CR-V. With both the Pilot and CR-V holding very favorable spots in their respective classes, it's no surprise the Passport is also a great pick.

The Honda Passport's combination of spaciousness, comfort and convenience allows it to slightly outrank other midsize SUVs that include the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, Toyota Venza and Hyundai Santa Fe. However, the scoring is pretty close. Check out our in-depth Expert Rating to help you decide if the Passport is for you.

What's it like to live with?

Edmunds tested a Passport for a year and more than 20,000 miles. We liked it for its long-distance comfort and convenience features, but were unimpressed with the infotainment system and advanced safety feature tuning. For more about our experience with the Passport, check out our long-term test logbook. Note that we tested a 2019 model, but the 2021 Passport is largely unchanged, so our observations still apply.

EdmundsEdmunds' Expert Rating
Rated for you by America’s best test team
The Honda Passport is one of the most versatile SUVs on the market. It exudes an athletic character from both a design and performance standpoint, but it also delivers a comfortable ride, plenty of cargo space, and decent fuel economy. It also comes with a good number of standard features, excellent smartphone integration and plentiful interior storage.
The Passport excels in terms of the on-road driving experience. The standard V6 engine delivers punchy acceleration, and the nine-speed transmission shifts smoothly. The 0-60 mph run took 6.8 seconds in Edmunds testing, which is among the quickest in the class. The Passport also exhibits better-than-average handling characteristics. Its nicely weighted steering helps the SUV feel responsive and light in turns.

But there is room for improvement. While the brakes offer a consistent feel and are easy to modulate in routine driving, the pedal exhibits a bit of squishiness under hard braking. There's also some nosedive that can make sudden stops feel a touch skittish.
The Passport is spacious and comfortable. Though the Passport has a slightly stiffer ride than the related Honda Pilot, its suspension controls large body motions and small bumps equally well. The front seats don't have a whole lot of bolstering to them, but they're wide and provide hours of comfort. The reclining rear seats are also quite comfortable.

We also like the Passport's quiet cabin; there's very little wind and tire noise. The tri-zone climate control system is effective, as are the heated and ventilated seats (which remember your last setting on vehicle startup).
The Passport's cabin is well designed. Head- and legroom are abundant all around, and three adults can sit in the back with minimal discomfort. The Passport sits a little higher than competitors, which might hamper entry and exit for shorter passengers, but the sizable door openings help reduce this difficulty. Outward visibility is excellent in all directions.

The responsive and vibrant touchscreen infotainment system is easy to use. Having knobs and buttons for other controls and functions is a good thing. The unique push-button-style shifter saves space but takes some getting used to.
The Passport is packed with most of the modern technology features you'd want. The upgraded audio system — available on Touring and Elite levels — sounds great and fills the cabin space well. The navigation system responds quickly to pinch and swipe gestures for easy map zoom and rotation. Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration comes standard on every Passport.

Most of today's advanced safety systems are represented, and almost all are standard. But not all work seamlessly. The adaptive cruise control system, in particular, is troublesome because it only works above 20 mph. As such, it's not very useful in bumper-to-bumper traffic.
The Passport's 41.2 cubic feet behind the second row is a large amount of space. Fold down the rear seats and you'll have 77.9 cubic feet. (Note that due to different measuring standards, you might also see Honda list 50.5 and 100.7 cubic feet, respectively.) The load height, however, is a bit high. As for child safety seats, there's enough room for the installation of even bulky rear-facing seats. Car seat anchors are easily accessible.

Small-item storage includes large door pockets, a clever space in the center console, and an abundance of shelves and cubbies throughout the cabin. The AWD model's 5,000-pound maximum towing capacity is average for the segment. Front-wheel-drive models are limited to 3,500 pounds.
The EPA estimates the AWD Passport gets 21 mpg combined (19 city/24 highway), which is about midpack for midsize SUVs. On our 115-mile testing route, we averaged about 22 mpg, which is in line with EPA estimates.
The Passport's pricing is typical for the class, but exceptional materials and assembly quality, a spacious interior, and a comfortable ride make it feel like a bargain. The cabin's soft-touch plastics on the dash, combined with high-gloss black trim and matte-finish secondary controls, look and feel good. The panel gaps are small and even.

Basic warranty coverage and roadside assistance are offered for three years/36,000 miles, while the powertrain is covered for five years/60,000 miles. All are average for the class.
Like its three-row Pilot sibling, the Passport is a versatile and well-rounded SUV. It has a great combination of power and comfort, and its handling is gratifying. The Passport is also the best-looking of the Honda SUV bunch thanks to its more aggressive fascia and athletic stance.

Which Passport does Edmunds recommend?

For our money, we pick the Passport in EX-L trim. It adds a fair amount of convenience features for a reasonable amount of money. The higher trims add only a handful of items and are rather expensive by comparison.

Honda Passport models

The 2021 Honda Passport is offered in four trim levels: Sport, EX-L, Touring and Elite. Powering all of these is a 3.5-liter V6 engine (280 horsepower, 262 lb-ft of torque) paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard; all-wheel drive is available as an option and included with the Elite trim.

The base Sport model starts the features list with:

  • LED headlights
  • Keyless entry and ignition
  • Tri-zone automatic climate control
  • 60/40-split rear bench
  • 8-inch touchscreen
  • Seven-speaker audio system
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
  • Advanced safety features that include:
    • Lane keeping assist (steers the Passport back into its lane if it begins to drift over the lane marker)
    • Adaptive cruise control (adjusts speed to maintain a constant distance between the vehicle and the car in front)
    • Forward collision mitigation (applies the brakes automatically to stop the vehicle to avoid or minimize a collision)

Stepping up to the EX-L adds several convenience items that include:

  • Power liftgate
  • Sunroof
  • Power-adjustable driver's seat with memory settings
  • Heated, power-adjustable front seats
  • Leather upholstery
  • Rear USB ports
  • Blind-spot monitor (alerts you if a vehicle in the next lane over is in your blind spot)

The Touring trim adds a few niceties that include:

  • Hands-free liftgate
  • Parking sensors (alert you to obstacles that may not be visible behind or in front of the vehicle when parking)
  • Heated rear seats
  • 10-speaker sound system
  • Navigation system

The Elite trim tops off the list with:

  • Ventilated front seats
  • Heated steering wheel

5/5 stars, Passport to the Future
Mike B.,
Elite 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 9A)
Before purchasing I was deciding between the 4Runner and Passport. I wanted a dependable vehicle that was off road capable but also fuel efficient. While neither are very fuel efficient the Passport is rated better. I also wanted a vehicle that was comfortable for long road trips. The Passport checked all the boxes. In the short time that I have had the Passport I am getting 27 on highway trips with plenty of comfort. The heated and ventilated seats are really a nice touch. In the cold climate the rear heated seats are appreciated along with the HVAC controls. Another nice feature is the Honda torque vectoring AWD. There is always at least 20% of the power going to the rear wheels. I highly recommend this vehicle to anyone needing a comfortable road cruiser with off-road capability.
5/5 stars, Great SUV
Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 9A)
I have never purchased a vehicle as loaded with pleasant surprises as my new 2021 Honda Passport. I purchased the Touring AWD model because of it's standard features. For a relatively large SUV, the Passport has a powerful and responsive 6 cylinder engine, handles great and is fun to drive with a variety of driver assist and safety features that all work very well. The interior is roomy and comfortable not only for the driver but also for the front and rear seat passengers. Both front seats are power adjustable and the rear seats manually adjust to provide more comfortable seating for rear seat passengers. The climate control system has 3 zones which allow everyone in vehicle to adjust heat and air conditioning to their preference. The cargo area is big enough to accommodate luggage for 4 passengers with the rear seats up and an even more impressive amount of cargo with the rear seats down.
5/5 stars, Love my new SUV
Eva Zibell ,
Elite 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 9A)
I love the passport Elite for so many reasons from the smooth and powerful drive to the buttery leather seats , the safety features, the wireless charger and the overall quality.
5/5 stars, Great 2 Row SUV
Happy Honda Owner,
Elite 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 9A)
The 2021 Passport Elite checks off all the boxes. Its has a lot of passenger space, comfortable on a long trip. Plenty of power. Good fuel economy for an SUV. I got 24 MPG on the highway. It has a large cargo arear with a lot of storage.

2021 Honda Passport video

[MUSIC PLAYING] SPEAKER: Whether you call it an SUV, a crossover, a lifted a hatchback, or whatever, the modern SUV has to fill an extraordinary wide range of jobs from an inexpensive and fuel-efficient city commuter to a lumbering rig that can haul the family and a boat. There's a ton of diversity among SUVs which can make finding the right one for you a challenge. So in this video, we've broken down the major size and price categories for SUVs and we'll give you the recommendation for the best in each class for most buyers. Now, we're basing these recommendations on everything we've evaluated up to the point of the production of this video. Every vehicle listed here has gone through our extensive rating process where we perform a standardized road loop evaluation and performance testing, our rating process is one of the most thorough and regimented in the business. You can find more by clicking the links below to visit Edmunds.com. And you can also get a cash offer on your car by visiting Edmunds.com/sellmycar. Again, that's Edmunds.com/sellmycar. Extra small or subcompact SUVs are the smallest and least expensive crossovers-- as they're often called-- that you can buy. You get the benefits of an elevated driving position with the small exterior size for the feel of added maneuverability. Now, cost cutting is sometimes apparent. But top trim levels can feel surprisingly upscale. Our team's favorite is the Mazda CX-30. It looks sharp and has an abundance of standard technology and safety features that help offset its slightly higher starting price. On the downside, its fuel economy is a little behind the curve, but by such a small margin that it doesn't really matter. Also, total storage space trails others in this group. So why is it our pick? Well, for starters, our team really liked how it drives, from the feel of the steering to the comfortable ride. Then there's those features, from useful and standard advanced driver aids like adaptive cruise control to good phone integration all around. Lastly, the experience inside and out feels richer than the price would suggest, making it seem like you're getting a lot more for your money. Another option worth looking at is the Hyundai Kona. I point this out because on Edmunds it's nearly tied with the Mazda for first place. The Kona costs a bit less and that difference is attributable to the interior that doesn't look and feel as nice as the Mazda and a slightly more clunky drive train, in particular the shift from the optional turbo engine and transmission combo are particularly unrefined. Otherwise, it's similarly sized inside and the tech and features are also strong so it's worth a look. Extra small luxury SUV get you a prestigious badge at an affordable price. You always get luxury-grade comfort and performance-- remember that price thing-- but a few gems really stand out. Our favorite is the Mercedes Benz GLB. We think the boxy shape looks kind of cool. And it makes for a spacious interior for people and cargo. Better yet, it comes with our team's favorite entertainment system among luxury cars, if not all cars out there for sale right now. The NBUX entertainment system is really powerful so it can feel a little overwhelming at first. But its broad capabilities and voice recognition are unmatched outside of anything you'd find other than your phone. But hey, you can use that too. As far as other features go, well, it's a Mercedes, so there are a ton of options to choose from. I mean, you can even get massaging seats. But that also means the price can jump considerably as you tack those options on. So keep that in mind. Topping off the Benz is an above average fuel economy for the class, making the GLP a worthy pick for a subcompact luxury SUV. Small or compact SUV these are among the most popular out there because they balance an exterior and interior size really well. You get a lot of space without taking up much yourself. Now, these are essentially the new compact family sedans and it's easy to see why. The Honda CRV has long been our favorite in this group. We even bought one for our own long-term test and had about 50,000 miles on it before we sold it. The CRVs best attribute is not just its interior size but the cleverness of that space. It's massive. But it also has a number of useful configurations like an adjustable load floor in the rear and a really trick center armrest. It's the kind of stuff that a family can really find usable. All that being said, there are a few annoyances like the entertainment system and particularly aggressive warning alerts from some of the safety features. But the overall driving experience price and fuel economy make the CRV a really easy recommendation. We should also point out the Mazda CX5 because it's actually tied for first place in our rankings. It's not as usable as the CRV in terms of interior space. But it's a bit nicer to drive and it feels far more premium inside. So if you don't need the space and don't mind paying a touch more for a bit more luxury, the CX5 is definitely worth considering. Now let's talk about three-row SUV cars in this size category. They may seem like a good idea at first. But we have to warn you that the existence of a third row in a compact SUV can make for a really cramped experience. It takes up cargo volume itself, that third row. And the seat is usually pretty small. If it's all you can afford, well, here's what you should consider. We like the Kia Sorento because it straddles the exterior size and price between compact and midsize SUV. And it finds a sweet spot in the process. Our evaluators gave the Sorento high marks for ride quality, interior comfort, and an intuitive, though far from fancy, entertainment system. You also get decent storage, a third row row, obviously, and a lengthy warranty. It all makes a great pick for a three-row compact SUV. Here's where luxury SUVs come into their stride. There are a lot of options here with wide ranges and capability. Most anything you find here will have a comfortable ride, nice interior materials, and good performance too. Our favorite is the Mercedes Benz GLC, which delivers a luxury experience you'd expect regardless of the style you choose it in and what styles there are. There are four cylinder and hybrid versions if you care about fuel economy. And there are 500 horsepower turbo V8s if you simply want to go fast. And there's a bunch of stuff in between too. The available MBUX entertainment system is, again, among our team's favorites for its capability voice recognition and phone integration. And the right is comfortable and the interior is, of course, luxurious. Now, cargo capacity isn't as strong as some others so if you need more space, you can look elsewhere. But as for everything else, it's hard to beat what the GLC delivers. Now, you can make an argument that the Tesla Model Y falls into this category. We're making broad recommendations here, so for the Tesla, I'll say this. If your local infrastructure supports your charging needs and you are interested in EVs, the Model Y is worth strong consideration. For more info, read our ownership report on the one we bought to see if it's right for you. As SUVs get larger, you get more interior m more capability, more m and also more options, we decided to split midsize SUVs into two categories, one for SUVs that have a third row standard and the other for SUVs that don't, or SUVs that have an optional third row. We do this because there are shoppers out there who don't want a third row even though they want an SUV of around this size. Now, for three-row SUVs, the gold standard of this group is the KIA Telluride. It really is the stand out. I mean, no buts about it. It has all the features space and capability but it also has a design and approach to materials that make it seem like a luxury vehicle. There are also some really thoughtful touches inside like the location of the USB ports on the seat-back sides for the rear passengers to access. And there are some really helpful technology items in there, too, like an extensive exterior camera system. As for the downsides, well, it can't tow as much as others like the Ford Explorer, for example. And as in the time of this recording, they're actually really hard to find on dealer lots. But on balance and for the money, there are few more appealing ways to move seven or eight people than the Kia Telluride. Now, if you only want two rows in your midsize SUV consider the Honda Passport. Our testing team found it to be highly versatile and with some athleticism, too, from its V6, but also a comfortable driving SUV with tons of passenger and cargo space, not to mention a welcome assortment of standard features too. We also ran one in our long term fleet for a year so check the links below to see more about what it was like to actually own one of these vehicles. If you want something more specialized like for towing or off-road, there are better options, of course. But the Passport is a solid all-a-rounder that like the smaller Honda CRV, makes for an easy recommendation to most shoppers. Midsize luxury SUVs generally take the qualities of a standard midsize SUV like towing space and room for cargo and passengers, but add to it the latest in technology, power, and, of course, high-end premium furnishings inside and out. You'll also see some of these SUVs available as coupes. Now, these generally are the same as the standard versions or the non-coupe versions. But they have more stylized roof lines that sacrifice some practicality for style. Of the two row SUVs, well, are you tired of Mercedes dominating the recommendations? Too bad. Our top pick in this category is the Mercedes GLE which was redesigned for 2020. Like this smaller GLC, the GLE comes in a wide variety of styles, and trim levels, and engines, frankly, too many to list here. But our highlights across all the versions are an extremely powerful entertainment system and an interior that's comfortable, spacious, functional, and quiet. Now, the GLS price can jump considerably when you start playing around the options. But, hey, these are luxury SUVs. And in the case of the Benz, our team truly believes that you get what you pay for. Now, if you want the standard, third-row, no options required, check out the Audi Q7. Obviously, it's going to come up a little bit short in terms of cargo space because of the existence of that third row. But the overall package is strong. Our team said the Audi's mix of performance, comfort, and technology, and value is hard to beat. And we also gave it high marks to the interior and the way the Q7 drives. Here we get the classic utility vehicle, the family trucksters, the Canyonero. These rigs have super-size capability and space. They can haul a big family, that family stuff, you know, the family's boat or the horse too. I don't know. If you need maximum versatility, this is what these big rigs deliver. Our current top pick is the Ford Expedition, which marries excellent design with a capable truck-based platform. It can seat up to eight and tow more than 9,000 pounds depending on the configuration, and inside, the Expedition can be outfitted with all the features and toys you'd expect from a luxury vehicle. If you need more space, the Expedition Max takes the standard expeditions strengths and adds to it nine inches of length. If you absolutely need the most space possible, here's your answer. Before finishing this recommendation, though, I have to point out that Chevy's just put out a new Suburban and Tahoe. We haven't performed a full evaluation on those vehicles yet. But keep up to date with our recommendations at Edmunds.com to see if the results here change. Now here's where things start to get a little silly when it comes to opulence. These SUVs have tremendous road presence due to a combination of size, design, and power. These behemoths are as functional as they are impressive. Not many vehicles out there offer quilted leather upholstery and massaging seats along with 7,000 pound tow ratings, and upwards of 600 horsepower, and seating for seven. But the Mercedes Benz GLS does. What can we say? This is a fancy people and gear hauler that takes all the luxury elements our team likes from Mercedes and adds to them a cushy ride, and remarkable performance, and a cavernous interior. It looks great too. You're paying a lot for this kind of SUV so your expectations should be mighty high. A good thing, our team says the GLS might just be one of the most well-rounded vehicles on sale today. That wraps up our SUV recommendations for 2020 and 2021.

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport

Honda Passport vs. Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport

The Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport is as spacious as the Honda Passport and further benefits from sporty handling, a comfortable ride quality and an intuitive infotainment system. Unfortunately, the VW feels a bit underpowered, even with the optional V6 engine, and doesn’t compensate with fuel savings. The scores are pretty close, but the Passport edges it out.

Compare Honda Passport & Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport features 

Honda Passport vs. Toyota Venza

Yes, the Toyota Venza is back, and this time it's more like a regular SUV. The previous model awkwardly straddled the line between wagon and SUV. Notably, all 2021 Venzas are hybrids. The hybrid powertrain gives the Venza a distinct efficiency advantage over the conventionally powered Passport, and those benefits pile on with standard all-wheel drive, a luxurious interior and high scores for comfort. The Passport bests it with more interior space and greater towing capacity.

Compare Honda Passport & Toyota Venza features 

Honda Passport vs. Hyundai Santa Fe

The Hyundai Santa Fe is one of the value leaders in the class, offering a lot of features for the money and having the most generous warranty coverage in the industry. Its interior also boasts high-quality materials. The Honda Passport is more enjoyable to drive, though, with a more responsive engine, a smoother ride quality and better outward visibility.

2021 Honda Passport First Impressions

What is the Passport?

Honda resurrected the Passport nameplate two years ago for use in its new five-passenger crossover based on the successful Pilot. After testing it against other midsize SUVs, we declared it our favorite of the bunch. While it doesn't offer the off-road abilities of its forebears, the modern 2021 Honda Passport is a stellar performer on the pavement.

Midsize crossovers are defined by cargo and passenger space, and the Honda Passport has both in spades. It offers noticeably more head- and legroom in both rows compared to its smaller sibling, the Honda CR-V, and there's a bit more cargo room as well. The 3.5-liter V6 produces plenty of thrust yet delivers good fuel economy, both in EPA estimates and real-world driving. Rounding out the Passport's list of admirable attributes are plush seats and an upscale cabin design.

There are a few solid alternatives if you find yourself resisting the Passport's call. The Hyundai Santa Fe was also redesigned for 2019, and its low base price and fuel-sipping four-cylinder engine are more cost-effective. The Ford Edge offers a refined driving experience, and its V6-powered ST model is faster than you might expect. Finally, the Toyota 4Runner is unparalleled with respect to its all-terrain capabilities.

EdmundsEdmunds says

The Honda Passport is your ticket to a well-rounded midsize crossover. Its punchy acceleration, excellent ride comfort and overall refinement elevate it above others in the class.

Should I lease or buy a 2021 Honda Passport?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
