Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Passport than in the Lexus NX 300. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda Passport and the Lexus NX 300.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Passport as you will with the Lexus NX 300, 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 Lexus NX 300. 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 will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Lexus NX 300.

Dimensions
Since the Honda Passport is much wider than the Lexus NX 300, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Honda Passport, which is slightly longer than the Lexus NX 300.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Honda Passport and the Lexus NX 300 are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Handling
The Honda Passport has the same turning radius as the Lexus NX 300, 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 Lexus NX 300 for pulling heavy loads. The Honda Passport has a little more horsepower than the Lexus NX 300.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Honda Passport and the Lexus NX 300. With the Honda Passport, you'll be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lexus NX 300.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Passport is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Lexus NX 300.
