Differences Between 2019 Honda Passport & 2019 Honda Pilot

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

The 2019 Honda Passport lands in the lineup between the compact CR-V and the three-row Pilot as a midsize crossover with seating for five. In fact, it's nearly identical to the Pilot except for length and shares the same truck-based platform. Here's how the Passport stacks up to the 2019 Pilot, which has seating for up to eight and new standard driver assistance equipment for the new model year.


The 2019 Passport and Pilot even share the same engine: a V6 that produces 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. It's paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission in the Passport and either a six-speed or nine-speed automatic in the Pilot. Both SUVs have standard front-wheel drive and available all-wheel drive. When equipped with the available towing package, the Passport can tow 3,500 pounds in the front-wheel-drive model and 5,000 pounds with all-wheel drive. The Pilot can also tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped. Added ground clearance and selectable drive modes make the Passport suitable for off-roading.


Both vehicles come standard with the Honda Sensing suite of safety features, which includes automatic forward emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane keep assist, as well as a rearview camera. The Pilot also comes standard with automatic high beams, forward collision warning, collision mitigation braking, lane departure warning, and road departure mitigation.

Tech Features

The Pilot and Passport are packed with high-end tech features that appeal to just about every driver. Although full equipment hasn't been announced yet for the Passport, it will include Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity on every trim but the base model. It will also offer two additional USB ports and a household-style power outlet in higher trims.

The Pilot comes standard with a 5-inch display screen, Bluetooth, two USB ports, and a seven-speaker stereo system. Higher trims have the upgraded 8-inch touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. You can add wireless charging, an upgraded 10-speaker audio system, navigation, a mobile hotspot, and an extra USB port and HDMI port.
