Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Passport offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Jeep Wrangler. The Jeep Wrangler offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Passport, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The Jeep Wrangler requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Honda Passport, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Whether you pick the Honda Passport or the Jeep Wrangler, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Passport carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Wrangler.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Passport is much wider than the Jeep Wrangler, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Honda Passport takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Wrangler.

Handling
The Honda Passport has a smaller turning radius than the Jeep Wrangler, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When considering towing capacity, the Honda Passport is clearly the choice over the Jeep Wrangler for pulling heavy loads. The Honda Passport has a little more horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Honda Passport doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jeep Wrangler.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda Passport and the Jeep Wrangler. With the Honda Passport, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Jeep Wrangler.

Warranty
The Honda Passport comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Wrangler.
