All-New and Improved – The 2019 Honda Passport in Kenosha
You’ll be able to travel the globe with this Passport, and we don’t mean the book. Today, we’re introducing you to the All-New 2019 Honda Passport in Kenosha and comparing it against the Volkswagen Tiguan to see how this Honda stacks up against the rest.
Safety is always a top priority at Honda, and the All-New Passport puts the Tiguan to shame with its smart airbags, which are capable of deploying at different levels of force depending on passenger size. It can determine this with vehicle speed and seat sensors, and can even shut off the side airbag entirely if it detects a child leaning against the door. If the roads are slick, you won’t have to worry about losing control because the Passport comes with standard full-range traction control. The Tiguan’s traction control is only useful for low speeds, so traveling at higher speeds on slick roads are more dangerous in the Volkswagen.
It’s also important to note the Passport’s standard safety feature known as Honda Sensing®. This intelligent suite of safety features works overtime to prevent you from getting into accidents or drifting off the road. The Collision Mitigation Braking System™ can automatically apply the brakes if the system detects an unavoidable collision. The Road Departure Mitigation System can determine if the vehicle crosses over any detected lanes without a signal, and can provide steering assistance to get you back into your lane.
This All-New rugged SUV might seem tough on the outside and ready to tackle any challenge, but it’s also intelligent with technological advancements that will surprise you. When you unlock the door or switch off the ignition on the Touring and Elite models, the driver’s seat will glide back, allowing for easy entry or exit. These two models also have standard heated front and rear seats to keep everyone comfortable during fall and winter; a secure entry system and rear heated seats are not optional on the Tiguan.
When venturing into uncharted territory, don’t worry about leaving a mark on the environment as you would in the Tiguan. The Passport has an engine control system that’s capable of shutting down half of its cylinders, which improves fuel efficiency and has a cap-less fueling system that reduces fuel evaporation. The Passport also only requires regular unleaded gasoline for optimal performance and has a larger fuel capacity of 19.5 gallons. The Tiguan needs premium and can only hold 15.3 gallons, making each gas stop a little more taxing on the wallet.
