Compare the All-New 2021 Subaru Outback and the 2021 Honda Passport

MSRP and Value

The 2021 Subaru Outback comes standard with so much more than the 2021 Honda Passport and starts at only $26,795. That's almost $6,000 below the 2021 Honda Passport, which starts at $32,590. Even at that price, you don't get nearly the same value, as the Honda Passport doesn't come standard with features such as all-wheel drive like the Outback does.


Even with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, the 2021 Subaru Outback gets up to 33 mpg highway and 26 mpg city with its 2.5-liter engine, which easily beats the 25 mpg highway and 20 mpg city that the 2021 Honda Passport offers with front-wheel drive. The difference is even starker with all-wheel drive Honda Passport models, which gets only 24 mpg highway and 19 mpg city. Even the available turbocharged Subaru Outback engine gets 30 mpg highway and 23 mpg city!

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and Capability

The Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system that Subaru has become famously known for comes standard on the 2021 Subaru Outback. Offering more capability than Honda's AWD system, the Outback ensures traction in any condition New England can offer. The 2021 Honda Passport offers all-wheel drive, but it's a $2,000 upgrade. That means that the base Subaru Outback and base Honda Passport with all-wheel drive differ in price by over $7,000!

Digital Connectivity

Every 2021 Subaru Outback comes standard with the SUBARU STARLINK Multimedia system, which includes Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. You can control this system through a touchscreen that's up to 11.6 inches in size in the Subaru Outback but maxes out at 8 inches in the Honda Passport. This includes making calls and using your favorite navigation apps, all of which you can control hands-free.
