The 2021 Honda Passport is based on the Pilot midsize 3-row SUV/crossover. Size-wise, it fits between the Pilot and the compact CR-V, which is quite a clever strategy. The Passport is the answer to the 35,000 or so Honda owners defecting each year to buy something like the Ford Edge, Hyundai Santa Fe or Nissan Murano.
Shorter than the Pilot by just over six inches, the Passport is also wider and taller. The resulting higher ground clearance and superior approach and departure angles mean the Passport has greater off-road abilities than its 3-row sibling.
