The Passport uses Honda’s patented Advanced Compatibility
Engineering body structure, which features a network of front-frame structures
designed to absorb and deflect energy in frontal collisions. The SUV received
five stars for front driver side safety, four stars for front passenger side
safety, five stars for a variety of side crash test scenarios, and four stars
for rollover risk.
But Honda would much prefer if you didn’t get into a crash in the first place, so it equipped with Passport with Honda Sensing, its suite of advanced safety and driver-assistive technologies, which is now also standard on most new Honda models.
Honda Sensing comes with automatic emergency braking, road
departure mitigation, lane departure warning, lane keeping assistance, and
adaptive cruise control. These help provide drivers with greater awareness of
their surroundings and, in some cases, can intervene by steering the car back
in its lane or applying the brakes to mitigate a front collision. The automaker
says 85 percent of the vehicles its sells now come with Honda Sensing
So far, every tested 2019 Honda vehicle has earned the maximum five-star overall vehicle score for safety in NHTSA testing, and most of them have also earned either a Top Safety Pick rating or a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
