Simplicity is Key

On the interior, Honda has stripped out the new complicated infotainment and HVAC controls in favor of the simpler features from their ’90s interiors. Standard features include automatic windows, digital clock, cassette-to-CD converter and air conditioning. Gone is the button-ridden multi-function steering wheel. This wheel has one key feature, a horn. Very important for letting people know when they did wrong.

You can even watch this standard-definition, 4:3 aspect ratio video explaining all of the fun new features.

Still A Passport at heart

Under the hood, you still get the same 3.5-liter naturally aspirated V6 making a respectable 280 horsepower. Power goes to all-four wheels through a 9-speed automatic transmission.
