Serving Cincinnati, OH, Louisville, KY, and Florence, KY

Honda continues to boast one of today’s most exciting SUVs lineups. With the arrival of the next-generation 2019 Honda Passport, you now have yet another great option to choose from. Not only does this midsize SUV deliver great comfort on the road, but it also has the ability to take your family on a serious adventure. Let’s find out how the all-new 2019 Honda Passport stacks up against the 2019 Acura RDX.


Both of these SUVs will deliver a strong performance. However, there’s just a bit more muscle under the hood of the 2019 Honda Passport. While the Passport’s V-6 engine develops 280 horsepower, the RDX’s turbocharged four-cylinder engine produces 272 horsepower. When driving around with passengers and cargo, you’ll definitely appreciate the Passport’s high output. Although both SUVs offer all-wheel drive, the 2019 Honda Passport is the more capable off-road performer. Featuring four drive modes, Honda’s new i-VTM4 AWD system helps the Passport to easily tackle various types of terrain. When traveling off the beaten path, you can also take advantage of the Passport’s 8.4-inches of ground clearance.


The 2019 Honda Passport is the perfect definition of a sport utility vehicle. Its multi-purpose design will definitely appeal to a lot of adventure seekers. If you need to tow a boat or camper, you can trust the new Passport to get the job done. All-wheel-drive models can confidently tow up to 5,000 pounds. By comparison, the 2019 Acura RDX can only pull a maximum of 1,500 pounds. You also can’t overlook the Passport’s versatile cargo area. With more than 41 cubic feet of storage space in the back, roadtrippers will have more than enough room for their extra gear. There’s 31.1 cubic feet of cargo space behind the Acura RDX’s rear seat.


These are two of the most stylish SUVs in the segment. Like the 2019 Honda Passport, the 2019 Acura RDX has a strong road presence. Nevertheless, outdoor lovers may prefer the Passport’s tougher appearance. It looks ready to take on any obstacle. Blacked-out exterior trim and powerful body cladding give the Passport an especially rugged character. A stunning set of 20-inch alloy wheels accentuate the SUV's a bold stance. Meanwhile, standard roof rails further highlight the Passport’s adventurous design. A total of six different paint colors are expected to be offered.

While the 2019 Acura RDX is a fine SUV, it loses this comparison to the all-new 2019 Honda Passport. There are a lot of drivers who will appreciate the Passport’s great versatility. If you would like more details on the Passport, be sure to contact us at Jeff Wyler Honda.
