The 2019 Honda Passport is a rugged SUV with available all-wheel drive, plenty of room for cargo, and has adventure embedded into its DNA. As a 5-passenger SUV, the Passport is also one of the safest vehicles on the road, earning a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the NHTSA*. Let’s take a look at why the Passport scores so high on safety tests.
In its inaugural year, the new 2019 Honda Passport has been given a 5-Star Overall Vehicle Score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA*). The score combined driver side and passenger side ratings as well as side crash tests and rollover resistance. The Passport achieves the highest 5-star rating thanks in part to its body design that helps to reduce the force involved in collisions, as well as its driver-assistive technology that works to prevent incidents from happening in the first place.
Advanced Compatibility Engineering Body Structure
Safety in the Passport starts with its innovative Advanced Compatibility Engineering (ACE) Body Structure. The design utilizes a complex network of frame structures to absorb crash energy and actually distribute it away from the occupants sitting inside the cabin. The design also minimizes the amount of force that gets transferred to the other vehicle in the collision, keeping everyone on the road safer and keeping the damage down to a minimum.
Every model of the Passport comes fully equipped with the Honda Sensing suite of driver-assistive technology that warns drivers of potential impacts, and can prevent incidents from happening altogether by adjusting the steering or automatically engaging the brakes. The state of the art systems that comprise the package include:
- Collision Mitigation Braking System
- Road Departure Mitigation System
- Forward Collision Warning
- Lane Departure Warning
- Lane Keeping Assist
- Adaptive Cruise Control
