Honda just launched a new addition to its SUV lineup known as the Passport. We know what you’re probably thinking... “Another SUV option is great, but with so many options already out there, how do I know which one is right for me and my family?” It’s a good and fair question to be asking. After all, if you’re trying to compare the 2019 Honda Passport vs the 2019 Nissan Murano, as we are doing here, there are many things to consider.
We’ll make it easy for you by comparing the two SUVs side-by-side, and when it comes to the Passport, it’s great for anyone looking for something that is off-road capable and may be needed for heavy duty tasks. If this describes your driving needs, the Passport is likely the way to go, as it has a towing capacity of up to 5,000 lbs and a standard engine pumping out up to 280 horsepower and 262 lb-ft of torque.
2019 Honda Passport Sport AWD
2019 Nissan Murano S AWD
|280 hp, 262 lb-ft of torque||Standard Engine Specs||260 hp, 240 lb-ft of torque|
|Up to 100.7 cubic feet||Cargo Volume||Up to 67.0 cubic feet|
|Up to 5,000 lbs.||Towing Capacity||Up to 1,500 lbs.|
|Up to 115.9 cubic feet||Passenger Volume||Up to 108.1 cubic feet|
As you can tell from the chart above, the Passport has a clear edge over the Murano in those areas, but it’s interior space where the Passport really shines. In all honesty, the Murano, in comparison to other models in this segment, does pretty well to at least stay within the same realm as the Passport when it comes to passenger volume. It still can’t match the Passport’s 115.9 cubic feet of overall passenger room, however. Moreover, where the Murano really disappoints is with its small cargo area, offering only 67 cubic feet of overall cargo volume. The Passport tends to blow its competition out of the water in this area thanks to 100.7 cubic feet of cargo space.
There is so much more to explore with the 2019 Honda Passport, but as you can see, when it comes to key areas that are important to you with an SUV, the Passport really outmatches the 2019 Nissan Murano. To learn more or to get behind the wheel, contact us at Hilton Head Honda.
