To put these qualities into better perspective, we gathered competitive comparison research.

Review our findings below to discover which vehicle stood out in this analysis.

2022 Nissan Murano
2021 Honda Passport


While both SUVs feature V6 engines that pack a considerable punch, the Murano's fuel efficiency estimates give this new Nissan model an edge in overall capabilities. Featuring 28 miles per gallon highway compared to 25 miles per gallon highway in respective base powertrain configurations, extra value is established for common behind-the-wheel routines.


The 2021 Nissan Murano and Honda Passport both come well equipped with digital settings and infotainment settings. But for optimal connectivity and a modern drive you appreciate, we suggest siding with the new Nissan SUV. The head-to-head technology specifications for both models are as follows:

  • Standard HD radio vs. not available (Sport trim)
  • Standard satellite radio vs. not available (Sport trim)
  • Standard three 12V DC power outlets vs. two 12V DC power outlets
  • Available 11-speaker sound system vs. 10-speaker sound system


The 2021 Nissan Murano again beats out its Honda Passport competition in a category that prospective SUV shoppers deeply value. Featuring a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat with lumbar seat support, acclimating within the cabin comes easier before departure. Alternatively, the Honda Passport features a four-way adjustable driver's seat with no base lumbar seat settings. And while both vehicles feature available sunroof configurations, the new Nissan Murano's panoramic roof functionality speaks to the superior craftsmanship and operational advantages this model enjoys. The Nissan Murano also comes standard with LED headlights, LED signature Daytime Running Lights, and automatic on/off headlights, providing you with true pristine clarity when you take a nighttime drive. While the Honda Passport also comes with the same features, they aren't standard to the lineup - you'll need to pay extra to have them equipped.


The 2021 Nissan Murano features class-exclusive safety systems that its Honda Passport competition doesn't offer, adding to the reassurance you experience while seated inside. A class-exclusive standard intelligent forward collision warning, one of many driver-assistance response settings to prevent potential accidents from occurring, isn't available with the opposition's base trim level. For improved awareness of surroundings, the Murano also features a class-leading Intelligent Around View® Monitor, yet another active safety appliance that the competing Honda Passport doesn't offer. The Passport offers the Honda Sensing® suite of driver assistance features, but you won't find the same quality experience that you get at the wheel of the Nissan Murano.
