Comparison Review

Comfort
The Toyota Highlander offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Honda Passport, with comparable head- and legroom. The Honda Passport will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Toyota Highlander.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Toyota Highlander as you will with the Honda Passport, 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). The Toyota Highlander is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Passport. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Toyota Highlander will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Honda Passport.

Dimensions
Since the Toyota Highlander is much slimmer than the Honda Passport, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Toyota Highlander, which is slightly longer than the Honda Passport.

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

Handling
The Toyota Highlander has a smaller turning radius than the Honda Passport, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Toyota Highlander will do just as well as the Honda Passport, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Toyota Highlander has a little more horsepower than the Honda Passport.

Utility
Soccer Moms and those who need to chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the Toyota Highlander more than the Honda Passport, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. The Toyota Highlander has less cargo space than the Honda Passport, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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