2019 Honda Passport Back To The Future
Apr 1, 2019 - TORRANCE, Calif. Spurred by the resurgence of nineties pop culture, Honda is introducing the '90s-themed Pastport as a new trim available in the all-new Passport lineup. The exclusive Pastport trim is unlike any SUV available today, showcasing the sleek exterior of the all-new 2019 Honda Passport (https://automobiles.honda.com/passport) with a masterfully simple throwback interior highlighting popular '90s features, such as automatic windows, plush micro-fiber seats, a cassette player and a mount for a beeper. The Honda Pastport will be available in early April 2019 at Honda dealerships nationwide.
"From TV reboots to fashion, the '90s are making a huge comeback, and we saw an opportunity at Honda for consumers who want uniqueness and simplicity, so we decided to reach back and bring the Pastport to market this spring," said Zack Tanner, historical innovations manager for Honda. "We think the new Pastport is all that and a bag of chips."
The 2019 Honda Passport
The 2019 Passport is the newest addition to Honda's award-winning SUV lineup and delivers a unique combination of on-road driving refinement and off-road capability, along with best-in-class interior space. Designed for adventure-seekers who want the exceptional on- and off-road capability of Honda's available i-VTM4™ torque-vectoring all-wheel drive system, the power and towing capability of its 280-horsepower 3.5-liter i-VTEC® V6, and the more personal and rugged character of a five-passenger SUV, Passport fits between the refined and compact CR-V and the larger, family-focused three-row Pilot.
The all-new 2019 Honda Passport comes standard with 20-inch wheels, a blackout grille, the Honda Sensing® suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, as well as higher ground clearance and wider track than the three-row Pilot. Along with Passport's best-in-class interior passenger space and total interior volume, the SUV features a large "basement" cargo area ideal for storing dirty gear or keeping valuables out of sight. Key premium technologies available on Passport include in-vehicle 4G LTE Wi-Fi, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, a high-resolution 8-inch Display Audio system, heated and ventilated front seats, wireless phone charging and more.
