While the 2024 Honda Passport may be one of the newest entries into the segment, it already rises near the top of the crowded pack of mid-size crossovers. It returns for 2024 with a brand-new trim offering this year – and a revamped TrailSport model.

Honda Passport Trims

You might mistake the new Passport for a Pilot from the front. Head around back, and you’ll notice the lack of a third row. The blacked-out grille of the Passport differentiates it from the rest of the vehicles in the Honda lineup, many of which feature a substantial chrome “belt” above the headlights. And with four trims to choose from, there’s a Honda Passport for both off-roaders and urbanites.

All versions of the 2024 Honda Passport come with a 3.5L V6 engine capable of 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque. All-wheel drive comes standard with this trim, something that can’t be said for most competitors. While the Honda Passport EX-L is the least expensive option, we wouldn’t necessarily call it the “base” trim.

The Honda Sensing system combines a Collision Mitigation Braking System, Road Departure Mitigation System, lane-keep assist, and adaptive cruise control. That’s impressive for this least-expensive trim. Additionally, there is a push-button start and a remote engine start. The entire vehicle sits on 20-inch alloy wheels, and there’s an innovative cargo area underfloor storage compartment in the rear.

Newly standard is an 8-inch touch display infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other standard features are tri-zone climate control, a seven-speaker audio system, proximity keyless entry, remote start, Bluetooth, wireless device charging, and USB ports. A moonroof, leather upholstery and heated seats are standard as well. This trim is available in FWD or AWD.

The EX-L trim starts at $41,900.


Right off the bat, the new 2024 Honda Passport TrailSport stands out from previous trims thanks to its roof rails, rubberized floor mats and orange accent stitching in the seats. Furthermore, the infotainment system has satellite-linked navigation that features 3-D renderings of terrain, buildings, and road signs. There is also ambient lighting and rear sunshades. It’s also worth noting that the vehicle has LED foglights, off-road-tuned suspension and 18-inch wheels.

That’s quite a lot of features, but it’s also quite a lot of money. With a starting MSRP of $44,500, this AWD trim is for those who love roaming the outdoors in style.

Black Edition

The top-of-the-line 2024 Honda Passport Black Edition replaces the Elite trim from the 2023 model. However, it’s pretty much the same thing. Seating is upgraded in the front to be both heated and ventilated. The interior boasts a premium audio system with 10 speakers and rear heated seats. Even the steering wheel is heated at this trim level. On top of this, you’ll get a Wi-Fi hotspot and hands-free power liftgate. Finally, you’ll get rain-sensing wipers.

The Passport Elite starts at $47,970 and comes standard with all-wheel-drive.
