The Honda Passport is an adventure-focused midsize SUV model produced and sold by the Honda Motor Company. As an alternative to the family-friendly Honda CR-V and Honda Pilot models, the Honda Passport features rugged styling, additional off-road capabilities and performance features, standard roof rails, and sturdy unibody construction, pairing the toughness of a truck with the practicality of an SUV.
Introduced as the first Honda SUV entry in 1993, the Honda Passport was initially a rebadged version of the Isuzu Rodeo. After years of declining success, the Passport was discontinued in 2002 in favor of the Pilot. However, the Passport made a triumphant return in 2018 with its third generation and 2019 model year.
Since its reintroduction, the Honda Passport adventure SUV has successfully banked both on nostalgia and as a new variety of vehicle offered by Honda. It now pairs nicely alongside the Honda Ridgeline pickup truck as the off-road lineup of the Honda catalog. Its competitors include the Chevy Blazer, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Subaru Outback, and the Toyota 4Runner.
