2021 Honda Passport vs. 2021 Nissan Rogue
Nobody, including the product experts working at the Meridian Honda showroom, can overstate the popularity and capability of the crossover SUV class. For the upcoming model year, the latest version of the Honda Passport makes more connectivity gear available on all trim grades, as well as a standard 8-inch touchscreen interface for the infotainment system on all four trim grades (Sport, EX-L, Touring and Elite). A comparison of the 2021 Honda Passport vs. 2021 Nissan Rogue will provide people navigating the buying cycle with some very important information. The 2021 Passport offers significantly more power across the board that translates into more than one ton of additional towing capacity. Honda has also equipped the 2021 Passport with an underfloor, lockable storage compartment – something that isn’t available in the 2021 Rogue.

Both the 2021 Honda Passport and 2021 Nissan Rogue have two rows of seats that will hold up to five passengers. Honda and Nissan engineers have provided the driver and front passenger with nearly identical legroom measurements, and both crossover SUVs have been praised by independent reviews for having very comfortable interiors. However, the 2021 Passport does make more rear legroom (39.6 inches) than the 2021 Rogue (38.5 inches). There are some small differences in the amount of cargo volume available in the 2021 Passport. A Sport version can offer up to 77.9 cubic-feet; EX-L and Touring trims will make as much as 77.7 cubic-feet of cargo volume and the top of the line Elite model can offer 77.5. All four trim grades will have 41.2 cubic-feet available behind the second row. The 2021 Nissan Rogue will have 31.6 cubic-feet behind the second row and a maximum cargo volume measurement of 74.1 cubic-feet.

One thing that is remaining the same for the 2021 Honda Passport is its powertrain. All four trim grades will be equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.5-liter, V-6 engine attached to a nine-speed automatic transmission. It will make 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. Two- and all-wheel-drive models are available. A 2021 Passport with two-wheel-drive will be able to tow up to 3,500 pounds and those models with all-wheel-drive will be able to pull up to 5,000 pounds. On the other side of the equation is the 2021 Nissan Rogue and its lone powertrain, a naturally aspirated 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine attached to the Nissan Xtronic continuously variable transmission. It will make 181 horsepower and 181 pound-feet of torque. Owners of the 2021 Rogue will only be able to tow 1,350 pounds.
