Passport vs. 4Runner

Fuel Efficiency

With an estimated fuel economy rating of 20 mpg city / 25 mpg highway, the Honda Passport is clearly more efficient than the Toyota 4Runner. Expect the 4Runner to return a less impressive 17 mpg city / 21 mpg highway.

Performance

While both of these SUVs come equipped with a strong V6 engine, the Passport offers a more exciting performance. Honda tunes the Passport to develop a healthy 280 horsepower, which is better than the 4Runner’s 270-horsepower output. Because of the Passport’s additional muscle and lighter design, it’s able to offer noticeably stronger acceleration.

Passenger Room

The new Passport gives your family and friends far more space to spread out. When sitting in the Passport’s backseat, passengers will enjoy an extra 6.7 inches of legroom.

Passport vs Murano

Off-Roading

Unfortunately, the Nissan Murano isn’t built for traveling off the beaten path. Meanwhile, Honda specifically engineered the Passport for outdoor lovers. The Passport’s torque-vectoring AWD system and Intelligent Traction Management system help you to dominate off-road trails. You’ll also benefit from the Passport’s 8.4 inches of ground clearance. Impressive! You can definitely take your future Honda Passport on an enjoyable drive to Spartanburg, South Carolina’s own Hatcher Garden and Woodland Reserve or Croft State Park.

Towing Capability

You’ll love the Passport’s versatility. A 5,000-pound maximum towing capacity enables the Passport to haul a big load. This is a key benefit for drivers who need to pull campers and trailers. Rated to tow only 1,500 pounds, the Nissan Murano isn’t nearly as capable.

Performance

In terms of sheer performance, the Passport yet again comes out ahead of the Murano. Its engine develops an extra 20 horsepower, which equates to noticeably stronger acceleration. Car and Driver clocked the Passport with a class-leading 0-60 mph time of 5.8 seconds.

As you can see, the 2019 Honda Passport outclasses the competition in some very important categories. If you would like to experience the new Passport, contact us at Vic Bailey Honda by calling 888-395-6335. Our staff will be more than happy to schedule you a test drive as soon as possible.
