Off-Road Capabilities of the 2019 Passport
One of the key elements that sets the Honda Passport apart from the crowd is its impressive off-road capability. The Passport features a high ride height along with standard 20-inch wheels. In fact, the Passport is based on Honda’s Global Light Truck platform, which gives it a sporty, athletic stance and provides a responsive, fun driving experience when taking the road less traveled.
