The Japanese brand is known through out the world to make really great affordable cars and trucks that are suitable for all. The midsize crossover had been out for quite a while now and while we’re unable to really get one for test drive until now, our quick overview of the Honda Passport 2019 is amazing based on our experience.
While the crossover is definitely fuel efficient based on expert reviews who have driven the car to a long range of about 3000 miles, it’s fuel efficiency is observed to have been on the normal range of 21.8 miles per gallon.
With that out of the way, other advantages of the Honda Passport includes its improved technology which now feature a better infotainment system as well as improved electrical rewiring throughout the interior and exterior of the vehicle. But’s examine those bit by bit.
If you live in a traffic congested city for example, having to spend so long in the traffic might be totally frustrating and would require professionalism to escape being hit or scratched by some uncareful drivers. The 2019 Honda Passport features what’s called the Honda Sensing as well as safety systems which includes Adaptive Cruise control, Lane – keeping assist and blind-spot monitoring.

That last one has been very helpful in keeping an eye on lane-splitting motorcycles, but the adaptive cruise control doesn’t work below 20 mph so it’s tough to use in stop-and-go traffic. Further, the lane-keeping assist doesn’t keep you in the center of the lane, but merely ping-pongs down the road. Granted, you should never take your hands off the wheel and let the car steer itself, but other manufacturers do lane keeping better, using lane-centering tech that feels more natural.
The Honda Passport 2019 features a two 12-volt outlets, five USB ports, a wireless charging pad and a 115-volt AC outlet which would give even four people the ability to charge their devices through the ports. The infotainment system is truly advanced. With the touchscreen and Wi-Fi connection, you can sync to the internet through the monitor and go about your usual activities such as checking out your social media accounts for updates.
NOW HAS MORE ROOMS
Another interesting thing about the 2019 Honda Passport is the real estate offering which is definitely improved. With a 77.5 cubic feet of space behind the front seats, there is lot of space to hurl your stuffs assuming you’re going on a trip. You can store your bicycle, loads of gears and other hardware right at the back and with the height of the car as well as the strength, you can hurl this all around wherever you’re going.
Another big advantage is how much room the passengers get. With about 40-Inches of headroom and legroom, there isn’t such thing as inconvenience. The seats are also adjustable and can take more people than the number of seats available.
Although everything might seem perfect but there is a little bit of a drawback though which is the rear hatch. Really tall people might have a bit of a problem staying comfortably within the rear passenger area as it might require adjusting ones in a while.
Second, when the hatch is unlocked with the fob, the rear doors remain locked. It’s easy to forget a second click is needed and with multiple people needing access to the car, it can be annoying to yell out, “Hey, Evan! Unlock the car!” when the hatch is wide open.

And also we’ll be able to calculate how far this vehicle can go at maximum speed possible. So stay tuned to TirePost for the best from the automobile industry.
