Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Telluride than in the Honda Passport, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda Passport and the Kia Telluride.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Passport as you will with the Kia Telluride, 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). The Honda Passport is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Telluride. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Honda Passport will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Kia Telluride.

Dimensions
The Honda Passport is about the same width as the Kia Telluride. The Honda Passport is slightly shorter than the Kia Telluride, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Honda Passport and the Kia Telluride are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Honda Passport has a larger turning radius than the Kia Telluride, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Honda Passport will do just as well as the Kia Telluride, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Honda Passport has a little less horsepower than the Kia Telluride.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Honda Passport seats a lot fewer people than the Kia Telluride. The Honda Passport has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Kia Telluride.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Passport is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Telluride.
