2020 Kia Telluride vs 2019 Honda Passport
Midsize SUVs are among the hottest family vehicles on the market. The all-new 2020 Kia Telluride is bound to catch your attention. Not only does the Telluride look stunning, but it’s also entertaining to drive. It competes directly against the 2019 Honda Passport. Let’s find out which one of these SUVs wins this head-to-head comparison.
Like the 2020 Kia Telluride, the 2019 Honda Passport comes standard with a capable V6 engine. However, there’s a bit more power under the Telluride’s hood. Its engine cranks out a reliable 291 horsepower, which is better than the Honda Passport’s 280-horsepower production. Whether you’re taking an epic road trip or pulling a heavy load, expect the Telluride always to feel incredibly strong.
Interior and Features
Your family and friends will love riding in the 2020 Kia Telluride. It has one of the most spacious interiors in the class. When lounging in the Telluride’s second row, passengers will enjoy more space to spread out. Furthermore, the Honda Passport only accommodates up to five people. Up to eight passengers can climb inside of the new Telluride, which makes it more suitable for growing families. Exceptional cargo space gives Kia’s all-new SUV yet another edge over the Passport.
In terms of standard features, you’ll find the Telluride to be the better bang for the buck. It comes standard with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration and blind-spot monitoring. These features are not found on the base Honda Passport, which means you must reach deeper into your pocket. While the Honda Passport offers an 8.0-inch touchscreen, the Telluride can be equipped with a stunning 10.3-inch touchscreen. A surround-view parking camera system is also only offered on the Telluride. Passport buyers are limited to a rearview camera.
Nothing beats being able to drive with an extra sense of protection. The 2020 Kia Telluride is backed by one of the best warranty packages on the market. It comes with a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty and 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty. This outclasses Honda’s warranty coverage, which includes a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty and a 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.
The 2020 Kia Telluride tops the 2019 Honda Passport in some key categories. To better experience how the new Telluride compares to the competition, stop by Fuccillo Kia of Wesley Chapel for a test drive.
