2021 Nissan Murano vs. 2021 Honda Passport

When it comes to finding the perfect midsize SUV, it can be exhausting, especially in the New Port Richey area. Getting everything you want and need and a price to fit your budget can be difficult if you don't know where to begin. Chances are, the more you've been driving around and searching for your next midsize SUV, that you've come across two of the more popular models in the 2021 Nissan Murano and the 2021 Honda Passport. 

But, which one is the right one for you? Fortunately, your friends at Maus Nissan of New Port Richey are here to help. We've put together this mini-guide and comparison of these two models so you can better understand which one is the best fit for you and what you're searching for! 

Performance
The 2021 Nissan Murano comes with 260 horses under the hood thanks to a 3.5-liter V6 engine standard in all Murano models. Paired with Nissan's revolutionary continuously variable transmission that's better programmed than most automakers, the 2021 Murano packs a punch in both AWD and FWD options. 

Under the hood of the 2021 Honda Passport, you'll find a 3.5-liter V6 with 280 horsepower paired with a 9-speed automatic and FWD or AWD options. However, their powertrain is not super economical, with lower EPA mpg estimates lacking Murano's range.

Interior Features
Inside the 2021 Murano, you'll discover a more car-like SUV than any other brand with a premium cabin that focuses on both comfort and luxury and has room for five. With high-end features available like the surround-view monitor and dual-pane sunroof, the Murano stands above the rest. Not to mention the incredible 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Car Play and Android Auto support. 

For the more state-of-the-art features and infotainment options in the 2021 Honda Passport, you'll need to pay for upgraded packages and trims. While the standard base model comes with an 8-inch touchscreen that includes Apple Car Play and Android Auto, it lacks a tuning knob. 

Safety Features
Every Nissan Murano comes standard with Nissan's cutting-edge and industry leading ProPilot Assist driver safety and assistance features. This includes their forward-collision warning with pedestrian detection and automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. 

The 2021 Honda Passport comes with a safety suite of its own with the Honda Sensing Suite that includes forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assist, and adaptive cruise control. Still, for things like blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, you'll have to upgrade from the base model.
