There are a few similarities between the 2019 Honda Passport and 2019 Subaru Outback. Both vehicles have seating for up to five passengers and available all-wheel-drive. That is about where common threads end. Passengers sitting in the back seat of the 2019 Passport will have up to 39.6 inches of legroom, depending on how far back the driver and front passenger set their seats. Riders in the back of the 2019 Subaru Outback won’t have quite as much legroom. Honda engineers have ensured that the 2019 Passport will be among the leaders in cargo volume in its class. When the interior is properly configured, there will be up to 77.9 cubic-feet in Sport models; 77.7 cubic-feet in the EX-L and Touring; and 77.5 in the top-of-the-line Elite. All versions of the 2019 Subaru Outback can only offer up to 73.3 cubic-feet.

Every 2019 Honda Passport available at Meridian Honda employs the same powertrain. A naturally aspirated 3.5-liter, V-6 engine attached to a nine-speed automatic transmission. It will produce 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Passport models with front-wheel-drive will be able to tow up to 3,500 pounds with all-wheel-drive models offering a 5,000-pound towing capacity. Subaru Outback owners will have a couple of engine options to consider. The standard engine is a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder power plant that will make 175 horsepower. A V-6 option is also available that doesn’t break the 260 horsepower mark and a towing capacity that can’t equal what is found with the 2019 Passport.
