Comparing Honda’s Latest Mid-Size SUVs

Honda has earned the 2020 Best SUV Brand by U.S. News & World Report**, a recognition it’s won for the fourth consecutive year. With SUVs like the Pilot and Passport, it’s no wonder that Honda continues to garner praise! The new 2020 Honda Pilot is now available, and drivers and families considering this mid-size SUV may also be looking at its stablemate, the 2020 Honda Passport. Here, we’ll compare these two highly refined models to help give you a better sense of which better fits your family’s needs, preferences, lifestyle and budget.

As you’ll notice from our comparison table, these two popular sport-utes feature a similar starting MSRP, so they both provide exceptional value for New Orleans area families. The Pilot starts in LX trim, while the Sport edition is the Passport’s base trim.

The two-row Passport has returned to the Honda SUV lineup after a long hiatus, and this new SUV is based on the same platform as the long-running Pilot. If you tour and test drive both of these SUVs here at Premier Honda, you’ll notice that there are plenty of similarities inside their cabins. They boast many of the same technologies, conveniences and safety features — including the Honda Sensing® suite of driver-assistive technologies.

Let’s delve deeper into the differences between these two fine SUVs so that you can feel confident in your selection when you secure your new Honda at our dealership near Metairie, LA.

Which Honda SUV Is Right For Your Family?

The biggest difference between Honda’s two mid-size SUVs in seating capacity. The three-row Pilot offers seating for up to eight occupants, while the Passport gives you that classic 5-passenger SUV layout. If your family is growing or might be in the future, then you may want to consider the 8-passenger Pilot over the Passport.

Even if you don’t often transport more than three or four passengers, the 2020 Pilot affords greater cargo capacity, too, thanks to its longer wheelbase and greater total interior volume. Consider your current and future needs for hauling passengers and cargo to make the right choice!

Thanks to its shorter wheelbase, lighter weight and overall sportier driving dynamics, the two-row Passport is the more agile of the two SUVs. Depending on where you drive and how often you cruise and park around downtown New Orleans — or if you prefer a more nimble SUV — the new Passport could be a worthy choice.

No matter which Honda SUV you select, you’ll be happy to learn that Honda’s intelligent suite of safety and driver-assistive technologies, called Honda Sensing®, comes standard on both models. With features like Adaptive Cruise Control, a Road Departure Mitigation System and Lane Keeping Assist System, you can drive with complete confidence!
