The Pilot was one of the best vehicle I owned, but 2 people don’t need a 8 passenger ride.
So here goes with the comparison of the Pilot elite vs Passport elite.
Driving the pilot felt like a hybrid mine-van super comfortable and luxurious, something that our fathers would of driven.
The Passport is more agile and young feeling while keeping the same luxury as the Pilot. Sounds weird I know.
Today I drove our Black Beast to Duluth Minnesota “450 miles” round trip. Packed full of U-turns, get up and go events, lazy cruises, and some paddle shifter action. It was a fun day, 24 mpg “90% freeway & 10% out and about driving.
Hey Gary, congrats on retirement and your new Passport! I'm four years into retirement and will be picking up my obsidian blue Elite on March 11. It will be my 9th Honda in over 30+ years. I'm very glad to hear that you found the Passport to be more agile than the Pilot. I would like to find out if Honda tweaked the AWD software algorithms in the Passport at all to make it more sporty, like the SH-AWD they use in the Acura SUVs. I'm trading in my 2015 CR-V EX-L, a very reliable workhorse that did everything well but without an element of fun. I'm hoping the Passport does all of that.
