A Short Review of the 2022 Honda Passport

The 2022 model year edition of the Passport series from Honda is now making headlines for adding up a new TrailSport trim. This new trim of the two row crossover SUV model from Honda aims to look even more rugged than the rest of the crew and brings with it a nicer mix and match of features that complete the circle of a near-perfect model of its kind.

The 2022 Honda Passport as a mid-size, two-row crossover model from its family is now all in the news and advertisement hoardings that flaunt its rugged styling and a greater off-road capability. Apart from the exterior styling changes, the performance of the 2022 Honda Passport got a boost because of the raised suspension that fits perfectly with its greater approach and departure angles, commented a well-known auto critic when we had a pretty long conversation on the same model, in the premise of the Orinda Honda dealer.

Changes Done for the Year 2022

Apart from the introduction of the TrailSport trim, the rest of the 2022 model year lineup of Honda Passport sees very less changes. After the recently done redesign, in which the A-pillar moved forward with a newly constructed hood and the front grille received a squared-off shape, the 2022 Honda Passport model series now have a look that resembles much with its cousin model Ridgeline.

For the year 2022, the Honda Passport now has got only a new rear bumper making room for larger sized exhaust tips as well as new wheel designs on the 20-inchers. Honda also announced a new Performance Development (HPD) styling package, that will give the 2022 Passport models a new frontal grille, pairs of black fender flares, bigger sized wheels, and HPD graphics as optional cues to enhance its visual appeal.

Power Generation

The 2022 Honda Passport continues to use the same 3.5-liter V-6 engine which is rated at 280-horsepower after mating to a 9-speed automatic gearbox. The 2022 Honda Passport has shown its keenness in delivering better ride experience, once it got the tighter suspension to handle the road undulations. It has also installed a new noise cancelling system which is good at muting the road noises and on the other hand, the overall driving dynamics of the 2022 Honda Passport has proven its readiness in tackling curves from gentle to adamant ones.

Standard and Available Feature Options

Feature updates offered on the 2022 Honda Passport are various and more than satisfactory for this segment buyers. To name a few there are Rear seat belt reminders that are now standard on the EX-L models, a wireless charging pad and a sophisticated center console that controls all the activities of the crossover with high precision.

An 8-inch multimedia touchscreen display is also found to be standard on all models of the 2022 Honda Passport models that work through Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to offer smartphone feature compatibility. Each trim level of the 2022 Honda Passport equipped with Honda Sensing work towards a safer drive with the help of automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and active lane control, confirmed the Honda dealer serving Orinda.
