Honda Passport vs Toyota Highlander

2020 Honda Passport

Midsize SUV Battle for Top Spot

Fresh off its 2019 re-release, the 2020 Honda Passport hits our Old Bridge showroom again with the same excitement and high-expectations of delivering outstanding performance and driving satisfaction in the Midsize SUV class. This two row sport utility boasts an exceptionally comfy interior cabin with cavernous cargo space and many standard features that are only options on the competition such as adaptive cruise control and automated emergency braking. The Passport Sport, as well as each of the other trim levels, is equipped with a robust 280-hp 3.5 liter V6 engine and a smooth shifting 9-speed automatic transmission to power you over any road condition from the NJ Turnpike to the dirt trails of the Pine Barrens to the sandy beaches of the Jersey Shore. Combining a generous offering of features and equipment at a lower MSRP than Highlander, the 2020 Passport gives Old Bridge Honda SUV shoppers a great choice of a versatile, capable and roomy SUV that offers exceptional value. Let's break down some of the advantages that our head-to-head comparison revealed.

The Critic's Choice

U.S. News and World Report Automotive Reviews are highly-respected, comprehensive and objective studies of every new car that is produced each model year. Automotive experts pour over every facet of an automobile's interior, exterior, equipment list, performance and overall value. The 2020 Passport passed this rigorous test aginst the Highlander with flying colors, besting its competitor in every category, from Performance, Safety, and Overall Rating, to the coveted Critic's Rating, scoring an impressive 9 out of 10 compared to Highlander's mediocre 7.5 score. But the critics aren't the only ones we're looking to impress here at DCH Academy Honda. We're confident that you, our coveted customers, will find the Passport to be just as impressive when you take your own test drive.

More Features For Less

No matter what the economy is doing, car shoppers are always looking to get more for their dollar and the Passport doesn't disappoint. Its window sticker is loaded with features and ammenities that are not offered on the Highlander. Beneficial features like an Alarm, Fog Lamps and Remote Engine Start come standard on Passport, and desirable options like Chrome Wheels, Rear Parking Aid, Hands-Free Liftgate, Heated Steering Wheel, Remote Trunk Release, CD Player, Electrochromatic Rearview Mirror and a Trailer Hitch Receiver are available on the Sport version, but if you want these items on your Highlander, you'll have to dig deeper into your wallet to upgrade to a higher trim level. Plain and simple, the Passport is the better value.
