2019 Honda Passport vs. 2019 Subaru Forester

The Honda Passport has made quite an impression on customers in the short time it has been available at dealerships like Meridian Honda.

A comparison of the 2019 Honda Passport vs. 2019 Subaru Forester will give potential buyers some new things to think about as they navigate the buying process with a Meridian Honda product expert. To be sure, there are a few similarities between the two models, but the 2019 Passport is able to offer more standard performance and more overall capability.

Performance Specs

Every version of the 2019 Honda Passport available at the Meridian Honda showroom uses the same powertrain. Under the hood of the latest Honda crossover SUV is a 3.5-liter, V-6 engine attached to a nine-speed automatic transmission. This will give Passport owners a peak output of 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. The Sport, EX-L and Touring versions of the Honda crossover SUV come with front-wheel-drive as standard equipment, but all of them can be outfitted with the Honda all-wheel-drive system. The Elite trim comes with all-wheel-drive. Front-wheel-drive versions of the 2019 Passport can tow 3,500 pounds; adding all-wheel-drive to the 2019 Passport will boost that number to 5,000 pounds.

Buyers who choose the 2019 Subaru Forester will be getting a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine mated to a continuously variable transmission. It will make 182 horsepower and 176 pound-feet of torque. Subaru does make its all-wheel-drive system standard across all trims of the 2019 Forester. Owners of the Subaru Forester will have a towing capacity of just 1,500 pounds.
