Honda Passport vs Toyota RAV4: Performance

Engineered to tackle narrow mountain roads and busy city streets, the Passport's powerful and efficient V6 and 9-speed automatic transmission delivers smooth confidence, no matter what the day brings. When paired with its available torque-vectoring AWD and Intelligent Traction Management System, drivers can tackle snow, ice, and rough terrain with ease.

By comparison, the RAV4's smaller 4-cylinder and Direct Shift electronically controlled transmission with intelligence supplies a reliable yet underpowered performance. The RAV4 also lacks similar off-road capability and towing power compared to the Passport.

Honda Passport vs Toyota RAV4: Space and Design

Whether loading up the family for a weekend ski trip or taking off on a solo business trip out of town, each SUV provides clever storage and comfortable space to fit your active life.

Step inside the Passport and you'll feel just how spacious its 115.9 cubic feet of cabin space is compared to the RAV4's 98.9 cubic feet. Use each SUV's power liftgate and you'll find this roominess extends all the way back to the cargo area:
