It looks good, but heavily influenced by the 2019 Pilot. I don't know if its quite as sporty as what Chevy has delivered with the new Blazer or Fords new ST variant of the Edge.

Honda is just one of those brands that benefits from people who just want the product for its capability and long-term reliability, with no concern for the details. For many decades we've been used to cookie cutter designs. Its just part of buying Honda (even Acura)

I'm still on the fence with those tail lights. I think they're just a tad better looking than the Pilot.

The Pilot tail lights look like incomplete to me.

I drive to work in the dark, early morning. This morning I was behind a newer Pilot for a while. The thing I like is that it's easy to see the Pilot in the dark because there's a good amount of width to the tail lights when the lights are on. Safety wise (visibility wise), that's a good thing. The Passport only has tail lights on the edges of the vehicle, they don't come "in" any (if you know what I mean). So, in my opinion, they're not as safe / visible as the Pilot since they won't be as easy to see in the dark. Does that make sense?

Absolutely. It's one of those things that can be a deal breaker for some buyers, and not just the aesthetics.

I owned a 2016 Pilot and it reminded me of a mini van, never cared for the large tail lights.
The Passport LOOKs like a traditional SUV , I love the looks of the back end, rearend up in the air reminds me of a older “Ford Explorer”. If I were to buy a black Passport and painted the doors white, it would be mistaken for a cop car :)
This may sound weird but, I own a 2017 CRV and looks kind of a car that a women would drive, the Passport looks masculine .

What do you guys think of the rear end compared to others in the segment? Do you think it's a bit dated or...?
Yes it does look dated, the manufactures have decided what people want is a modern looking SUV’s that don’t look like a SUV.
Not for me, I like a SUV that looks like a 90’s suv. I like a Pizza that taste like a Pizza, Taco that taste like a Taco :)

Some times less is more, the simplicity and style is a breath of fresh air. NO crazy tail lights in back,or stuff sticking our beyond the rear fenders, I love it!

I ordered very bright rear led turning lights (I used a bud who works on electronics for cars and said they would work 100% and cause no harm and no hyper flash as they use them in Pilots and Accords aftermarket) so if they work I will report back 😎 $20 dollar risk 🤞🤞🤞
