Compare the Redesigned Honda Passport with the Toyota Highlander at Cardinal Honda Serving New London and Waterford, CT

Picking out the right mid-size SUV can be a challenge but when it comes to popular models from the Honda and Toyota lineups, it's never been easier. The Honda Passport and the Toyota Highlander are equipped with responsive engine packages and a variety of modern technology and safety features. Your daily commute through Westerly, RI will fly right by at the wheel of either of these SUVs and we're happy to show you how they stack up against each other!

Check out how the two look side-by-side!

Honda Passport vs. Toyota Highlander: Performance and Capability

  • Both models offer 3.5-liter V6 engines for their lineups but the Honda Passport does so as a standard feature on every trim level. If you want it on the Highlander, you would have to upgrade from the base 2.7-engine.
  • The Toyota Highlander comes with a variety of transmissions: six-speed and eight-speed automatic and a continuously variable transmission. Honda simplifies the process by providing a nine-speed automatic transmission which allows you to control your daily drive with greater ease.
  • Both the Passport and Highlander can be equipped with all-wheel drive for better traction when the weather turns rough around Norwich, CT. The Honda model comes with an Intelligent Variable Torque Management™ all-wheel drive system while the Toyota SUV offers two different types of systems.

Honda Passport vs. Toyota Highlander: Interior Spacing

  • While the Toyota Highlander is designed for eight passengers, the Honda Passport can seat five passengers comfortably and easily. The Highlander offers more headroom and legroom in the front seat but sacrifices comfort in the second and third rows. The Passport offers plenty of headroom in both rows where you can easily stretch out your legs.
  • The Honda mid-size SUV offers over 15 more cubic feet of storage space than the Highlander can achieve with available floor space.

Honda Passport vs. Toyota Highlander: Available and Standard Technology

  • With the new Passport, tri-zone automatic climate control is standard on every model in the lineup, allowing you to keep your friends and family at their optimal comfort level. The Highlander offers the same exact feature but it isn't included on its base model.
  • Both models offer an eight-inch touchscreen that provides convenient access to their respective infotainment systems. Each utilizes Bluetooth® voice command to ensure easy control of your songs and apps. The Honda Passport also offers access to Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration which you won't find anywhere in the Toyota Highlander lineup.
  • If you want to take in a gorgeous day, both SUVs offer moonroof options to let the sun in. The Honda Passport offers them on the EX-L trim level and above as a standard feature while the Toyota Highlander only provides the features as an optional choice on the Limited trim configuration.
  • When you want quick access to your cargo area, the Honda Passport offers a hands-free power liftgate so you don't need to awkwardly find a free hand to gain access to it. The Toyota SUV also can come with a power liftgate but does not feature hands-free ability.

Honda Passport vs Toyota Highlander: Safety

  • Both SUVs offer a stellar set of active safety features: the Honda Sensing® suite on the Passport and Toyota Safety Sense™ package for the Highlander. Toyota offers similar active safety options to Honda but doesn't include a Lane Keeping Assist System or a Road Departure Mitigation System.
