I'm pleased to have the heated windshield on my 2022 Passport/Trailsport. One of the reasons I didn't want to trade in my Defender was it had the heated windshield. I didn't think I'd find anything comparable so Honda really surprised me here. On JLR's vehicles if you option in the heated windshield there are visible heating elements through the entire windshield running from top to bottom. Some people are annoyed by the 'look' of those but I got used to it, if you wear readers it probably blurs itself out anyway.
Really nice to have the heated windshield when you're up north like me with no garage during a harsh winter. The Honda 'solution' which is confined to the lower portion is at least as far as I'm aware the closest thing to what JLR offers. Honestly even though it's confined to the lower portion of the windshield I can't complain, it works quite well especially when paired with the remote start, heated steering wheel, heated seats all of which come on during a remote start session in cold temperatures. JLR was idiotic with their implementation, none of the cold climate features (which you paid extra for btw) even came on with remote start. <smh> The Passport is a joy so far as a daily driver. I didn't give up much... well, ok maybe a few things, air suspension, front camera 360, plus the shock-and-awe of it, Defender has some of that, but on balance I feel like I gained a lot and lowered my payment a huge chunk.
