What’s the Best New Car for 2019? Autotrader Says Honda Passport!

What’s the Best New Car for 2019? Autotrader Says Honda Passport! That didn’t take long, did it? Just released in the first quarter of 2019, the Honda Passport is already earning its keep. Autotrader has just named the Passport one of its 12 choices for Best New Car for 2019. Is it a surprise? Not in the least. The 2019 Passport is a fun to drive, stylish, and extremely well-equipped midsize SUV. Based on the Honda Pilot but without the third row rear seats, it’s an SUV that fits the needs of a huge range of buyers today.

SUV Capability

The Passport isn’t built strictly for pounding the pavement. In fact, the main reason Autotrader calls it a Best New Car for 2019 is because it puts both ‘sport’ and ‘utility’ back into SUV. Autotrader’s executive editor says, “We like the Passport because of its rugged look and just the way it comes off like a younger, feistier version of the Honda Pilot.” That means they love some of its extremely capable features. For example, the 2019 Honda Passport has an available torque vectoring all-wheel drive system with Intelligent Traction Management. A 280-hp 3.5-liter V6 certainly adds excitement to every drive. The Passport offers more capability on and off the road compared with its direct competitors, the Chevrolet Blazer and Ford Edge.

Awesome Value

And no matter which trim level you choose, you’ll get better value than you imagined. Find the features you want in the Passport like remote engine start, Smart Entry, Push Button Start, LED daytime running lights and fog lights, and crystal-clear audio system for less than the Jeep Grand Cherokee or other luxury car brands.

Fantastic Tech

And the Honda Passport isn’t basic, even at the entry-level Passport Sport trim. Honda Sensing technologies like Adaptive Cruise Control and Lane Keeping Assist are standard equipment throughout the lineup. The Elite model gives you a phenomenal SUV, especially at this price. A Qi-compatible wireless phone charger, heated and ventilated front seats, heated steering wheel, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and much more are included in the Elite package. Whatever you’re looking for in an SUV, check out the Honda Passport. As Autotrader’s Best New Car for 2019, you can expect top features, excellent value, and of course, sporty style.
