With the 2019 Passport, Honda will have its fourth SUV to offer Canadian consumers. That said, it will be slightly different from what Honda already offers in its sport utility vehicle lineup.
Following the official launch of the Passport this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show, we know that Honda is preparing an SUV that will want to be as competent on the highway as in the city and on an off-road track. With the new Passport, nothing is out of reach.
2019 Honda Passport : a symbolic name
The first thing to know about the Honda Passport is that its name is a nice nod to the history of Honda in North America. Indeed, the name Passport was used to designate the first SUV marketed by Honda in the United States, between 1994 and 2002.
At the time, Honda did not sell the Passport to Canada. However, we have had confirmation at Lallier Honda Hull that the new generation of the Passport will indeed be imported here. The first copies of the Honda Passport should arrive in the first quarter of 2019.
Honda Passport 2019: a fourth SUV at Honda
Upon arrival, the 2019 Honda Passport will become Honda's fourth SUV, alongside the HR-V, CR-V and Pilot. As we saw in Los Angeles, the Passport will be larger than a CR-V and smaller than a Pilot and its starting price will be less than $ 40,000.
Under the hood, the Passport gets the same engine as the Honda Pilot, a 3.5-liter V6 producing 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. The 2019 Honda Passport will also be available with a variety of driver assistance technologies that will keep you safe on the road.
We are eagerly anticipated the new Honda Passport at Lallier Honda Hull. The demand for SUVs is growing rapidly in Quebec and many of you are already asking us questions about the Passport.
