Auto show notes: Honda Passport




I must say, I was really expecting more from the "all-new" Passport.
A bit more than a shorter version of a 5-year-old design.

But at the same time, this is a pretty hot segment, and Honda has a great image. So I am pretty sure they will sell tons.

They only had a few of them at the show, all with black wheels. I just wonder if it looks better with regular wheels. And maybe a different grille...

Yeah, it not what I expected of a new Passport design, but Honda designers are really pretty terrible at making attractive cars these days! You would think that they would at least try to copy the last generation Pilot with it boxy style but they could not even take that step! Pretty lazy! But I kind of think it still okay for what it is! May just wait and buy a certified X5! I do not get were Honda is coming from in their design language for their new models, it so awkward and strange looking!

Oh Geez, not another grille from Honda. Haven't we had enough already?

I figured out who the new Honda models appear to - "Omega type men"! LOL!

I actually like the black wheels, especially with that exterior color. The rest of it though, not so much.

The Passport does have a nice greenhouse.

Calling it a 5 year old design when the pilot was introduced for 2016 is a bit of a stretch.

The black elements remind of those really cheap looking wheels and bumper bits you found on a 1990 Nissan Sentra, Yuck.

"All-new" just means no longer based on a 1990s Isuzu. LOL

Since it is consider an off-road type vehicle; it suppose to look stupid I guess. So it should be judge on ride quality and handling? If I had the money; I go straight for the G550! Got looks, luxury and ride quality all in one vehicle for around $145K!

Facts are for losers. The narrative is the important thing
