The new 2002 Honda Passport Sport Utility Vehicle is amongst
one of the toughest four-wheel drive SUV's to hit the market
- both on and off-road. On the one hand, it is gifted with
civilized refinement, a handsome design, and a plethora
of comforts and conveniences. On the other, the Passport
features rugged durability and one of the most powerful
and efficient six-cylinder engines in its class.
The Honda Passport SUV is offered this year in
three trim levels - Passport LX, Passport EX, and the luxurious
Passport EX-L. Both two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive
versions are available depending on your driving requirements.
Within the spacious and inviting interior of
the Passport are amenities that include power windows, power
door locks, cruise control, UV-treated glass for front doors
and rear hatch, fade-out map lights, handy cargo area net
and cover, tinted glass, adjustable steering column, and
a powerful sound system with eight speakers.
At the top level, the Passport EX Luxury Package bears
opulent genuine leather trim and an in-dash six-disc CD
changer for entertainment value.
The Honda Passport SUV sports body-colored bumpers
and a convenient roof rack for cargo and traveling with
luggage and sports equipment. It is built with triple-sealed
doors, and a body-on-frame construction common among trucks
On the elegant and well-appointed Passport EX model, the
exterior features a custom lower two-tone paint treatment
with color-keyed body side molding and attractive fender
The Honda Passport Sport Utility is outstanding
in this category, packing an impressive 3.2-litre, 24-valve,
DOHC, aluminum alloy six-cylinder engine that cruises along
smoothly and efficiently to the tune of 205 horsepower and
214 lb-ft of torque for terrific hill-climbing capabilities.
Each vehicle is equipped with variable power-assist rack-and-pinion
steering, double wishbone front suspension, and front and
rear stabilizer bars for a stable ride and tremendous handling.
Choose from the two-wheel drive models or more aggressive
shift-on-the-fly four-wheel drive version for increased
power and control on all fours for negotiating adverse weather
and terrain conditions.
The standard transmission on the base model is a five-speed
manual, checking in with a fuel economy rating of 17/20
mpg (city/hwy) for 2WD. The automatic transmission bears
a rating of 17/21 mpg (city/hwy). A 4WD manual transmission
vehicle hits the mark at 17/20 mpg (city/hwy), while the
