Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Passport offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Wrangler, with comparable head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Passport.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Passport as you will with the Jeep Wrangler, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

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). When looking only at MSRP, the Honda Passport will have less of an impact on your bank account 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 the same turning radius as the Jeep Wrangler, so they both maneuver the same 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. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Honda Passport and the Jeep Wrangler.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Honda Passport and the Jeep Wrangler are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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.
