Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Passport offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Honda Pilot. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda Passport and the Honda Pilot.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Passport as you will with the Honda Pilot, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Passport will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Honda Pilot. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Honda Passport and the Honda Pilot have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Honda Passport is about the same width as the Honda Pilot. The Honda Passport is slightly shorter than the Honda Pilot, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Honda Passport and the Honda Pilot are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Honda Passport has the same turning radius as the Honda Pilot, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Honda Passport will do just as well as the Honda Pilot, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Honda Passport and the Honda Pilot.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Honda Passport seats a lot fewer people than the Honda Pilot. The Honda Passport has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Honda Pilot.

Warranty
The Honda Passport comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Honda Pilot.
