If you're looking for a crossover SUV with the perfect balance between durability and class, the new 2019 Honda Passport may be the perfect vehicle option for you. With its spacious 41 cubic feet of storage space, the 2019 Passport can safely hold cargo for any journey, even off-roading on the most rugged terrains. This year's model may come with the same standard 3.5 liter V-6 engine as the Honda Pilot, but there have been a few significant upgrades that make the 2019 Honda Passport stand out from its similar models.
A monumental upgrade in the 2019 Passport is the option of i-VTM4 (intelligent variable torque management system). This is a highly advanced all-wheel drive system that can distribute torque by a certain percentage to each wheel, depending on which wheels have the most traction at that time.
With i-VTM4, the 2019 Honda Passport has the ability to distribute 70% of torque to the rear wheels, and then up to 100% of that distributed torque can go to either the left or right rear wheels. The vehicle automatically senses which tire has the most traction on the ground, and then assigns the torque levels that should be dispersed accordingly.
The 2019 Honda Passport also comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability. Apple CarPlay is compatible with iOS 7.1 and up, and it transforms your heads-up display (HUD) into a control base for your iPhone. The physical volume button in the 2019 Passport can be used as a control knob when accessing Apple CarPlay features.
Drivers can utilize Apple's CarPlay system to make and receive phone calls, listen to music, use navigational services, and much more. Android Auto is a similar service for Android users, but it also gives drivers the option of turning their HUD into an actual dash cam for extra protection in case of any traffic incidents.
