The Ridgeline should have this fascia instead of the Passport, but hey, looks okay.

Interesting how Honda has this multipronged solution to each region in terms of platform sharing. The Asian market gets the Brio/Mobilio/BR-V while the Americas get the Passport/Pilot/Ridgeline.

I like how they own up that the Passport taking its looks from the Pilot on the reveal event. I say the car is okay given its platform and tooling sharing work. Let's see how it goes.

I got the Sport Grill in our Ridgeline BE.

If that's not "rugged" enough for you, I guess I could put some longhorns on the hood and a fake tow hitch out front.

Meanwhile, out back, the tow hitch sticks out about 8 inches. I figure it's a great deterrent for anyone that wants to rear end us... Those 8 inches of metal are gonna poke a hole. If they run into our bumper, they can kiss their radiator, AC compressor, etc, etc... adios!

I actually like the proportion and look, minus the lazy taillights. Too bad the sunroof is not panoramic, and still dont like the shifter. That pic of all four SUVs look weird and out of proportion.

Why do some photos have the overdone (thanks Subie Outback) wheel arches and some do not? Is it an option?

The wheel arches seem to be part of the Adventure accessory package or you can probably buy a set ala carte out of the accessory catalog.

I wouldn't get so caught up on the looks.

I am guessing the pics we are seeing are of the Elite trim. Notice the caption in the pics on Honda's site.

How does this look with more pedestrian rims? Are all of the rims black?
