The current version of the Honda Passport was just introduced for the 2019 model year, making its triumphant return to the lineup for the first time since 2002 when it was discontinued. The off-road-ready midsize utility vehicle has splashed onto the scene with its trademark Honda style and all manner of great features and tech. On the other side, we’ve got the iconic 2021 Toyota 4Runner, which has been a steady force in the segment for decades. How do these two beasts measure up to one another these days?

Just a simple glance at the table up above shows just how comparable these two midsize SUVs are to one another. Each certainly has its advantages, but none of them are massive enough to put either firmly in the lead. It comes down to preference in terms of specifications as well as the feature content and design. But let’s work our way through the table to analyze the differences anyway.

We started off looking at power in the first row, an area where the Passport EX-L is superior by 10 horsepower. That’s not a huge difference, but one you might be able to notice if you’re especially fond of power. A more noticeable difference, however, comes in the second row as the Passport also excels in fuel economy by achieving an extra 4 miles to the gallon combined across highway and city driving. That should translate to quite a bit of savings at the pump in the long term.

The Toyota 4Runner has a sizeable advantage of its own, though, as it offers an extra 6 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats alone. So, if you’re focusing solely on specifications, then this comparison becomes a power/efficiency vs space battle, depending on which you prefer. Be sure to give us a call at the sales desk if you’re interested in either of these great models!
