The Case for the Honda Passport

While both SUVs are of the midsize segment, the Honda Passport is a two-row option that sits up to five people. Its size allows for an incredibly spacious cabin that is lined in premium materials. In addition, it comes standard with a very capable V6 engine that gets solid towing and allows for off-road capability.

Performance

The Honda Passport comes with a single engine option, and it is a good one. Its powertrain consists of a 3.5-liter V6 engine, a nine-speed automatic transmission, and a front-wheel drivetrain. All-wheel drive is available. At its zenith, the Honda Passport is capable of a performance output of 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque alongside a fuel economy of 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway as well as a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds when properly equipped.

The Honda Passport comes equipped with Intelligent Traction Management, which lets Crest Hill and Naperville drivers switch between one of four driving modes; Normal, Snow, Mud, and Sand. Mud and Sand modes are available only on the all-wheel-drive models.

Interior

The interior of the Honda Passport is undoubtedly attractive and practical. Constructed from a variety of high-grade materials, it ages well, and Aurora IL and Plainfield IL will enjoy the generous cargo capacity this midsize SUV features. There is 41.2 cubic feet of space behind the back row that becomes 77.9 cubic feet when you fold it down.

The Case for the Honda Pilot

The Honda Pilot is also a midsize SUV, but it is of the three-row variety, and as such, can fit either seven or eight passengers. For the amount of power that its standard V6 engine gets, the Honda Pilot gives Joliet and Shorewood IL drivers a relaxed driving experiences thanks to a durable suspension and superior handling.

Performance

Beneath the hood, Honda Pilot owners and lessees will find a 3.5-liter V6 engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and a front-wheel drivetrain.

The cabin is constructed from a wide range of high-grade materials that hold up well under the duress of younger and more impatient passengers. In terms of overall cargo capacity, the Honda Pilot can take on pretty much anything you throw at it. Behind the back row, you'll find 16.5 cubic feet of space, though if you fold down both rows, that figure multiplies to 83.9 cubic feet.
