One of the fastest-growing automotive segments is the midsize five-passenger SUV. Many drivers don’t need the third row but also don’t want the cargo and rear legroom limitations of a compact. The standard in this class—and Car and Driver’s Editors’ Choice—is the Honda Passport, and you now have the option of the 2023 Honda Passport at Winter Honda. The big update this year is that all-wheel drive is now standard equipment, and that allowed Honda to optimize the Passport as an AWD vehicle.
Consumers shopping in this space also have the option of the 2023 Nissan Murano, and we recently published a review with a deep dive into the 2023 Honda Passport vs 2023 Nissan Murano discussion. Nissan currently seeks to compete with Honda and the other leaders in this segment with a lower MSRP, but that is a double-edged sword as that approach requires some sacrifices on the equipment front. Honda also does a better job with the available space. It provides about 40 inches of second-row legroom and 50 cubic feet of dedicated cargo space, which are both best in class.
