Families like yours in the Marlton, Mt. Laurel, and Cherry Hill, NJ, areas often ask us if they should choose the Honda CR-V, Pilot, or Passport. In truth, all three are ideal for families and individuals alike! It's just a matter of choosing the one that's best suited to your unique needs.

The team at Burns Honda can help you figure out which one that is with our comparison of the Honda CR-V, Honda Pilot, and Honda Passport. Go ahead and check it out. Then, contact our team to talk it over one-on-one!


Which Has the Better Cabin: Honda CR-V, Pilot, or Passport?

Your unique needs will determine which SUV has the better cabin for you. The Honda CR-V, Pilot, and Passport all feature comfortable cabins with available heated seats to help you warm up on a cold winter morning before driving the kids to school. The Pilot and Passport also have available ventilated seats that can cool you off after a family day at the beach.

If you need a lot of room for carpooling to baseball practice, then you may have more room for everyone in the Pilot, as you can see below:

The Honda Pilot is a midsize SUV, so it has three rows of seats and enough room for seven or eight passengers, depending on your configuration. If you don't need as much passenger space, then the 2-row CR-V or Honda Passport should work just fine. All of these SUVs have plenty of cargo volume, though, with more than 75 cubic feet available in total.


Powertrain Specs of the CR-V, Pilot, and Passport

Now, let's take a quick peek under the hood. When you do, you may notice that the Pilot and Passport have a practically identical powertrain that includes a 280-horsepower V6 engine. The Honda CR-V delivers slightly less power with its 190-horsepower turbocharged I-4 engine.

However, the CR-V is the one to choose if you want to maximize your fuel efficiency capabilities. When equipped with available all-wheel drive (AWD), these three SUVs get the following EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings:

The Honda CR-V is also the only Honda SUV in this lineup to feature an available hybrid powertrain. The Hybrid CR-V produces a net system horsepower of 212 while also achieving an EPA-estimated fuel efficiency of 40 city/35 highway MPG on the EX, EX-L, and Touring Hybrid trim levels.1


Honda SUV Connectivity Features

It's time to get behind the wheel and hit the road, but first, you need to get the right tunes playing. The Honda CR-V, Honda Pilot, and Honda Passport all have connectivity features like Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, Bluetooth® HandsFreeLink®, and Bluetooth® Streaming Audio.

Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ come standard with the Passport, but they're available with a trim level upgrade of the CR-V and Pilot. All three also feature a touchscreen display in the center stack that you can use to access your media. Below, you can see the largest touchscreen they each offer:

  • Honda CR-V: Available 7-inch touchscreen
  • Honda Pilot: Available 8-inch touchscreen
  • Honda Passport: Standard 8-inch touchscreen

It's important to note that the Passport is the only one to come standard with a touchscreen. The CR-V and Pilot both come standard with a 5-inch LCD display. However, all three come standard with Bluetooth® wireless technology for streaming audio from your smartphone or placing hands-free phone calls.
