Everyone knows that Honda vehicles are built to last. When you choose Honda, you really cannot go wrong. The challenging part is more to see what Honda vehicle suits you and your lifestyle. Well, we are looking at and comparing a couple of the most sought out Honda SUVs, the 2019 Honda Passport and the 2019 Honda CR-V!
2019 Honda Passport

The 2019 Passport has improved in power, performance, cargo space and towing. When it comes to fuel economy however, the Honda CR-V is slimmer and not as performance heavy.
