2022 Honda Passport is Coming

August 5th, 2021 by

The Honda Passport returns for 2022 and fits neatly into its position between a mid-size and full-size crossover. Honda refreshed the Passport in 2021 and the 2022 model is considered a carryover until the manufacturer decides to overhaul the model in the upcoming years. There are no major changes for the 2022 Honda Passport, but if you’re a fan of the model and want to enjoy the recent makeover, come see us at Performance Honda in Fairfield, Ohio, and take the car out for a test drive today. Here’s what you can expect from the 2022 Honda Passport:

What You’ll Find in the Interior of the 2022 Honda Passport

The Honda Passport fits a total of five adults, but those sitting in the back can relax in comfort as there’s almost as much leg, shoulder, and hip room as the front seats. And when it comes to keeping cool or warm, there’s a tri-zone climate control system that lets the driver, front, and rear passengers set the temperature to their liking. The driver’s seat offers 10-way adjustability so the driver can get comfortable any way they like it. Seating options come in fabric and leather-trimmed, and heated and ventilated seats for warmth in the winter and cool comfort in the summer.

Cargo room in the 2022 Honda Passport is generous with a total of 50 cubic feet of space with the rear seats up, and over 100 cubic feet when they’re folded down. Underfloor storage in the storage area gives you storage with your storage. Simply lift up the rear panels to gain access and stow your stuff. Pair that with a hands-free power-assisted tailgate that can be operated with a wave of the foot, and you’ll be loading your gear into the Honda Passport with ease.

All trim levels come with a touch-screen navigation system that pairs with iOS and Android phones. The touchscreen also displays the view from the multi-angle rearview camera when the car is put in reverse and lets you choose which one of the three angles gives you the best view. 

The 2022 Passport Delivers Honda’s Legendary Mechanical Reliability 

All trim levels of the 2022 Honda Passport come with the 280-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 engine mated to a 9-speed transmission that’s capable of towing up to 5,000 pounds on AWD models. The transmission features an innovative shift-management system that lets you maintain control of speed and acceleration when you want. The transmission downshifts through multiple gears to help with fuel efficiency, and paddle shifters let you take control of when the transmission shifts up or down. 

Choose from 2WD or AWD at all trim levels to get the traction that suits your driving style best. An intelligent traction management system lets you pick the type of terrain you’re driving over and tells the Passport to respond accordingly. A 4-wheel independent suspension lets the car make its way over all types of terrain and maintain maneuverability at all times while absorbing rough bumps. 

Safety First in the 2022 Honda Passport

Honda didn’t flinch when it comes to the number of safety features it packed into the 2022 Honda Passport. The multiple safety systems are designed to anticipate trouble and alert the driver before an incident happens. 

Honda Sensing Suite

The Honda Sensing Suite is a grouping of intelligent safety and driver-assist technologies that alert the driver of things that they might otherwise miss. The technologies include:

  • Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS).
  • Road Departure Mitigation System (RDM).
  • Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC).
  • Lane Keeping Assist System (LKAS).
  • Traffic Sign Recognition (TSR).

Each safety and driver-assist technology is designed to deliver real-time information to the driver and aid them in making a decision. For example, The LKAS is an invaluable assist for long highway drives that can result in driver fatigue. The car detects when it isn’t centered in the lane and the driver hasn’t signaled a lane change. When these two factors are present, the LKAS makes subtle adjustments in the steering to keep the car centered in the lane and prevents the driver from floating into another lane. The RDM system works similarly, but monitors a lane departure with signaling and responds with steering assistance or braking to prevent the car from going off the road entirely. 

A Look at the Trim Levels for the 2022 Honda Passport

The available trim levels for the 2022 Passport include:

  • Sport
  • EX-L
  • Touring
  • Elite

The entry-level Sport comes standard with features that include underfloor cargo storage compartments, smart entry, push-button start, dual exhaust finishers, rear privacy glass, and intelligent traction management. It also comes with a touch screen infotainment system that has Apple Car Play and Android Auto integration. 

The base version of the EX-L is a stripped-down, single-color (buyer’s choice) and interior model. It features six accessory packages that add different details to the exterior of the car. Buyers can opt for an Adventure or Urban package to finish the look of the Passport.

Drivers who want all the latest technology in their Passport will love what the Touring package has to offer. It has a hands-free access power tailgate, satellite-linked navigation system, premium audio system, parking sensors, Wi-Fi hotspot capability, LED headlights with auto-on/off, second-row USB charging ports, a 115-volt power outlet, illuminated front beverage holders, and more. 

The Elite trim level is similar to the EX-L but is the loaded version of the Passport. It includes all the features of lower trim levels and comes with a wireless phone charger, ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and automatic-dimming, power-folding heated side mirrors.
