Sold in China. It is above the CR-V. Seats 5.
And looks almost exactly like the HONDA Avancier I mentioned a few days ago.
It just seems to be a toned down version of the weirdo Avancier.
(Especially up front where it doesn't have the horrible chrome parts on the side of the hood.)
Since Honda is about to bring a 5 seater SUV to the US. And they have registered the name Passport again.
I really thing the car above will become the US Honda Passport for 2018.
I mean it's already there, ready to go. No new design needed!
Sure, it's not the prettiest thing. But it fits right in with the CR-V and Pilot.
I can't really see any difference with the Avancier.
I guess the whole front is different. Even the front fenders?
It has more chrome, yet a smaller grille than the UR-V. Go figure...
So it might just be a higher end version of the UR-V.
Our Passport might be powered by a version of the 2-0 Liter Turbo that is coming out for the all new 2018 Accord.
It will be interesting to see how popular it will be next to the CR-V.
The Murano doesn't seem to be that popular for Nissan.
They sold about 87 000 of them last year. (Just about 18 000 more than the Maxima)
But the Murano starts at about $30 000.
I think Honda would be wise to price the Passport below the Pilot, which also starts at around $30 000.
With a base price of around $26 000/$27 000, it will have a much better chance.
About $2000/$3000 more tan the CR-V seems about right.
Get ready for another "not 100% ugly but still not good looking" Honda!
