Honda Pilot vs. Passport vs. CRV

March 10, 2020 7:14 pm

Honda makes some of the most reliable, and popular, SUVs on the market. They manage to offer plenty of passenger and cargo room without the extra bulk of a Ford Expedition, Toyota Sequoia, or other large model. That appeals to plenty of people who want the versatility and stellar handling of a sports utility vehicle while enjoying a bit of a leaner profile. If you compare the Honda Pilot vs. Passport vs. CRV, which will suit you best?

Let’s take a look at the numbers:

The CRV is the “entry” model in this lineup, but it is no slouch and delivers great economy for an SUV. It handles itself more than admirably in uneven terrain and inclement weather conditions (especially with the all wheel drive option). The Pilot and Passport sport similar specs in terms of engine, hp, and torque. When cargo space is a priority, the Pilot offers more room for the kids, the friends, the dogs, the gear, or the luggage for your adventure. If performance is more your thing, then the Passport is the answer.

Bottom line: all three Honda SUVs do the job, and they do it very well. It depends on your needs. The CRV will be the lowest price option. The Pilot is the biggest people-hauler, and the Passport adds performance features that are an upgrade from the other two models. What do you want and need from your SUV?
