This Passport had Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. However, we opted not to use a cord to make it operable. It would not or at least it didn’t work via Bluetooth. There was also wireless phone charging.
The Elite model had automatic stop-start, LED low beam headlights, fog lights, taillights and daytime running lights. There was also pushbutton start and stop. There were two USB ports, and three-zone automatic climate control.
We almost forgot to mention that the 2019 Honda Passport had an EPA fuel rating of 19 mpg in the city, 24 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg combined.
We would have liked to see those numbers a mile or two higher across the board. But the mileage was not enough to disappoint us. Surprisingly, there were rear window sunshades, an 8-way power driver's seat with adjustable lumbar support, heated outside mirrors and two additional USB charging points in the back-passenger area. There was also an AC power inverter 115v-150W (plug) in the back. The liftgate was power.
Of course, there was Bluetooth, an infotainment touchscreen, satellite radio, a navigation system, digital instrument cluster and remote start. Those were just some of the creature comforts.
For $44,725 as tested the 2019 Honda Passport AWD Elite was nicely packaged with a reasonable price.
