As we’ve noted in its previous new model overview, the 2019 Honda Passport fits in between the Honda CR-V and the Honda Pilot in terms of size and capabilities. As we’ve already compared the upcoming Honda Passport against its bigger brother, the Honda Pilot, we wanted to see how the smaller sibling fared. It’s the 2019 Honda Passport vs the 2019 Honda CR-V.

Our previous comparison of the 2019 Honda Passport showed that the revitalized crossover matched the power and cargo space of the 2019 Honda Pilot yet had the drawback of less seating. Compared to the 2019 Honda CR-V, the 2019 Honda Passport matches its 5-passenger seating but greatly improves upon power, performance, cargo space, and towing, among other notable areas. With pricing and fuel economy not yet certain for the 2019 Honda Passport, it is likely that the 2019 Honda CR-V will have the advantage in these areas due to its slimmer, less performance-centered build.
