Let's be honest: Most SUV buyers don't need three rows of seats. And with utility vehicles of all shapes and sizes in greater demand than ever, automakers are finding new opportunities with two-row, mid-size offerings, like Chevrolet's new Blazer, or the redesigned Ford Edge.

Honda now joins the fray with its 2019 Passport, a midsize SUV that slots between the compact CR-V and larger, three-row Pilot. It's nicely poised to take on a growing crop of five-passenger SUVs. And with its solid on-road chops and a roomy, well-appointed interior, the new kid on the block might actually be the best of the bunch.

Purposeful, not pretty

The Good The 2019 Honda Passport offers great on-road manners and lots of usable space, with lots of infotainment and safety tech to boot.

The Bad Its design is a little conservative, especially against sharply styled rivals such as the Chevrolet Blazer and Nissan Murano.

The Bottom Line Unless you absolutely need a third row of seats or strong off-road capability, the Honda Passport is a well-rounded offering in the midsize SUV space.
