Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Passport offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Nissan Murano. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Honda Passport and the Nissan Murano.

Convenience
The Nissan Murano 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).

Both the Honda Passport and the Nissan Murano have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Honda Passport transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Murano.
