2022 Honda Passport for Sale in West Springfield, MA
Trims and Powertrains
The 2022 Honda Passport is a two-row crossover made in three capable trim levels: EX-L, TrailSport, and Elite. Their 3.5-liter V6 engine whisks 280 hp and 262 lb.-ft. of torque and pairs with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard in the EX-L and all-wheel drive is available; the TrailSport and Elite get standard AWD. The ’22 Passport is quite efficient, with the FWD version achieving an EPA-rated 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway. With AWD it returns 19 city/24 highway. If your adventures call for towing some equipment, note that the Passport can tow up to 3,500 lb. with FWD and 5,000 lb. maximum with AWD.
Even though the EX-L is the base trim, it beats most other entry-level models with its long list of standard features. That list contains LED headlights, fob-less entry, a moonroof, a power liftgate, and heated side mirrors outfitted with turn-signal indicators, position memory, and reverse gear tilt-down. It also has tri-zone automatic climate control, a wireless phone charger, four USB ports (three for charging and one for data), three 12-volt power outlets, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a HomeLink universal garage door opener, a one-touch fold-down 60/40-split rear seatback, and a cargo-area underfloor storage compartment. The EX-L adds to the comfort factor with leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, heated and power-adjustable front seats, and driver’s seat position memory.
The infotainment system has an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, SiriusXM satellite radio, a seven-speaker sound system, and CabinControl (this lets rear occupants control the vehicle’s audio, entertainment systems, and climate controls from their smartphones).
The Honda Sensing driver-assist technology suite comes standard, adding to the safety factor with forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, and lane keeping assist. The EX-L also gets front and rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beams, and a rear seat reminder.
Adrenaline seekers will likely gravitate towards the Passport’s debuting TrailSport trim. It comes with standard AWD and roof rails that can accommodate common outdoor recreation equipment. Plus, the TrailSport also receives some nicer features, like a heated windshield wiper zone to prevent icing, power-folding side mirrors, LED fog lights, all-season floor mats, orange contrast stitching for the leather upholstery, illuminated front-row beverage holders, amber-colored ambient interior lighting, built-in navigation, a 115-volt power outlet, and manual second-row sunshades.
The Elite represents the apex of luxury, more than earning its name. In addition to the contents of the TrailSport (minus the all-season floor mats and orange contrast stitching), the Elite adds a hands-free liftgate, rain-sensing wipers, courtesy door lights (front row), a heated steering wheel, a conversation mirror that allows you to look at rear occupants while communicating, ventilated front seats, heated rear outboard seats, second-row climate controls, front passenger’s seatback device pockets, and white ambient interior lighting. What’s more, there’s an on-board Wi-Fi hotspot and a high-end 10-speaker sound system. HondaLink subscription services are offered as well.
The EX-L has LED headlights, rear privacy glass, keyless entry and ignition, three USB ports (two for charging and one for data), three 12-volt power outlets, and a one-touch fold-down 60/40-split rear seatback. But it also gets some more deluxe amenities like decked-out side mirrors (heated with turn-signal indicators, position memory, and reverse gear tilt-down), a moonroof, a power tailgate, front and rear parking sensors, a wireless phone charger, tri-zone automatic climate control, a HomeLink remote system that’s integrated in the auto-dimming rearview mirror, genuine leather on the steering wheel and seats, and heated power-adjustable front seats with position memory on the driver’s side. The EX-L also gets a space-saving cargo area underfloor storage compartment that lets you keep valuables out of sight.
The TrailSport is the off-road-oriented version with its trail-ready tire tread and standard AWD; its interior also sports a different look with orange contrast stitching, all-season floor mats, and ambient interior lighting. Some of its other standout features are heated windshield washer nozzles, power-folding side mirrors, LED fog lights, roof rails, illuminated beverage holders, a 115-volt power outlet, and integrated second-row sunshades. The extravagant Elite drops the TrailSport’s exclusive orange contrast stitching and floor mats, but it packs in the most luxurious features (rain-sensing wipers, auto-dimming side mirrors, a hands-free liftgate, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, heated rear outboard seats, and second-row climate controls).
The Honda Sensing suite of active safety features is standard in the Passport, adding collision mitigation braking, road departure mitigation, adaptive cruise control, lane keeping assist, forward collision warning, and lane departure warning. Every trim also has blind-spot collision warning with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic high beams, and a rear-seat reminder.
Infotainment and Connectivity
Everyone in the Passport will be well connected and entertained. The EX-L’s infotainment system has an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an SMS text message assistant, HondaLink remote services, a seven-speaker audio system, and SiriusXM satellite radio. The TrailSport adds integrated navigation, while the Elite gets all of the above plus an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot and three additional speakers.
