Shopping for a new car can be difficult, especially when you need a versatile vehicle that can handle everything your busy life will throw at it. That is why Honda has redesigned its popular midsize SUV to offer even more capability for busy drivers like you. The 2022 Honda Passport boasts new features, new levels of performance, and a bold new look–all combined with the same trusted Honda reliability. This midsize model is ready to make a splash, especially if you opt for the rugged new TrailSport version with its off-road enhancements. However, even if you prefer to stick to the streets of Duluth and Atlanta, the 2022 Passport has something for everyone. With a powerful V6 engine standard and a roomy interior with tons of cargo space, there is almost nothing this stylish SUV cannot handle. From comfortable commuter to off-road adventurer, Honda’s redesigned midsize SUV is ready to put the “sport” back in “SUV.”
As a midsize SUV, the 2022 Honda Passport is designed to give you more than your standard compact SUV can provide. More room to stretch out, more room for cargo, and more features in general. By putting five seats into a vehicle nearly as large as the eight-seat Honda Pilot, Honda has created the perfect option for families who have adult children or for drivers who simply need more room to handle their busy lifestyles. With over 50 cubic feet of space behind the rear seats, the Passport can fit everything from furniture to pets while still comfortably seating five adults. When even more space is needed, the 60/40 split rear seats can be folded down to provide an incredible 100 cubic feet of cargo space. When you drive a Passport, you never have to worry about running out of room.
However, this Honda SUV is far more than simply a large utility vehicle. This model is loaded with standard features that will satisfy even the most discerning driver. Standard leather-trimmed seats will let everyone relax in style, and you are in for a special treat with a standard 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat. Two-position memory settings are also included for the driver’s seat and side mirrors, so you never have to worry about getting all 10 settings perfect again after you share your vehicle with another driver. Simply program your preferred settings, and everything will be returned to your preferred position at the touch of a button.
Tri-zone automatic climate control is standard across the lineup, dividing the cabin into three sections. This allows the driver, front passenger, and rear-seat passengers to all enjoy their own personal climate settings. The ventilated front seats on the Elite are another welcome feature for drivers seeking to escape the Georgia heat, but every trim comes standard with heated seats to keep you warm on a cold winter morning. With this high level of creature comforts, the 2022 Honda Passport makes every drive enjoyable.
When you buy a new Honda vehicle, you get new Honda technology. Standard in every 2022 Honda Passport is a dash-mounted 8-inch high-resolution touchscreen loaded with interactive features. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allow you to sync your smartphone with the vehicle, accessing all your favorite apps from navigation to playlists directly through the Passport’s touchscreen. Meanwhile, SiriusXM and HD Radio provide you with even more entertainment on the go, from music to talk radio, you can access it all no matter where your adventures take you. An available Wi-Fi hotspot even allows you to access the internet on the go without using up your phone’s data.
Perhaps the best tech feature of the 2022 Passport is Honda’s unique CabinControl app. This feature allows up to eight devices to be synced with the vehicle, giving your backseat passengers control over music, navigation, and even climate control through their smartphone. Now you can relax and drive in peace while your passengers set the tri-zone climate control to their liking, play DJ, or send you directions to your next destination. And with the available 540-watt 10-speaker premium sound system, everyone will be able to enjoy whatever is playing with nearly concert-grade volume and sound quality.
With so many connectivity features in the 2022 Passport, everyone will want to keep their smart devices charged. Fortunately, your passengers won’t have to fight over a limited number of charging ports. With four USB ports, three 12V outlets, and a wireless phone charger standard, you have eight charging options available spread across both rows of seats. You can even add an optional 115V household outlet for charging larger devices like laptops or even power tools, making sure that you will never be stuck with a low battery while on the road. With the 2022 Passport, Honda has built an SUV that is designed to keep the most tech-focused crew happy wherever you go.
Every trim of the 2022 Honda Passport is set up for success with a reliable V6 engine under the hood. While other manufacturers move towards smaller four-cylinder engines, Honda sticks with the tried and true, giving you a dependable and potent engine that can tackle interstates and backwoods trails with equal ease. The 2022 Passport is even rated to tow up to 5,000 pounds, which is more than some midsize trucks. If you have more cargo than you can fit in the back of this spacious SUV, then simply hook up a trailer and you are ready to go.
The 2022 Passport is also available with Honda’s sophisticated Intelligent Variable Torque Management all-wheel drive system, providing incredible traction in all weather and road conditions. Unlike most all-wheel drive systems, which use a single clutch pack for the entire rear axle, Honda uses a pair of clutch packs. This allows the system to precisely shift torque between the rear wheels as needed, reducing wheel spin in bad weather and enhancing handling on dry roads.
For 2022, Honda has added a new off-road performance option for the Passport. The new TrailSport trim is designed to provide a more rugged take on Honda’s popular midsize SUV, adding a number of unique features. The thicker tires wrapped around the 18-inch alloy wheels give the TrailSport a smoother ride on rough terrain, while the standard roof rails give you room to store everything from kayaks and mountain bikes to tents and other camping gear. Inside, the TrailSport is set apart from the other Passport trims, thanks to unique orange stitching on its black leather seats and steering wheel and TrailSport badges on its headrests. The all-season floor mats also have TrailSport logos, helping them to look sharp while protecting the interior during your adventures.
One of the best parts of driving a Honda is the brand’s unwavering commitment to safety. Every single trim of the 2022 Passport comes standard with the full Honda Sensing driver-assist suite to help keep you safe on the road. While nothing can replace attentive driving, these features will help provide additional peace of mind on the road. The key features of this suite include a Collision Mitigation Braking System designed to detect potential accidents and automatically apply the brakes and a Road Departure Mitigation System that will provide minor steering inputs to help keep you safely in your line.
While not technically part of the Honda Sensing Suite, every 2022 Honda Passport also includes a Blind Spot Information System with Cross Traffic Monitor. This valuable system is not often found as a standard feature, and its presence in the Passport makes this model an even higher-value purchase. The Blind Spot Information System uses rear-facing radar sensors to detect traffic in your blind spots, while the Cross Traffic Monitor makes use of the same sensors to detect approaching vehicles when you are backing out of a parking spot or driveway. With this advanced technology to protect you, many common types of accidents can be avoided.
Avoiding accidents may be the goal, but sometimes that isn’t possible. If the worst should occur, you can trust the advanced engineering of the 2022 Passport to do its best to keep you safe. The Honda-exclusive engineering of the Advanced Compatibility Engineering body structure is designed to distribute the force of impact away from the occupants, seeking to keep you safe even in frontal collisions. This basic design is complemented with a full suite of airbags, including side curtain airbags with rollover sensors designed to protect your passenger's heads. Virtually every aspect of the 2022 Honda Passport has been carefully designed to maximize safety on the road.
