Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

When the Pilot’s too big and the CR-V is too small, the 2020 Honda Passport two-row crossover SUV is just the ticket.

Pros
Comfortable interior
Refined on the road
Decent off-road chops
Good 8.0-inch touchscreen on some models

Cons
9-speed automatic is a little confused
Expensive in top models
Not too adventurous in style
Not as tough as some may need

The Passport returns largely unchanged for 2020.

Pros
Spacious interior with lots of passenger space
Comfortable front seats
Enhanced off-road ability
Many clever storage compartments

Cons
Adaptive cruise control is only available over 20 mph
Driver's seat might be positioned a little too high for some people

For 2020, Honda doesn't make any meaningful changes to the Passport lineup. This is to be expected since the company just re-released the two-row crossover last year.

Pros
Loads of cargo and passenger space,
speedy powertrain,
copious standard driver assists.

Cons
Looks more rugged than it is,
only top trims have top options,
rides rough on bumpy roads.

The 2021 Subaru Ascent's #13 ranking is based on its score within the Midsize SUVs category. Currently the Subaru Ascent has a score of 7.7 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 30 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Roomy seating
Spacious cargo area
Generous standard features list
Standard all-wheel drive

Cons
Below-average predicted reliability rating

By:

Subaru's EyeSight suite of advanced driver aids now includes adaptive cruise control and lane keeping assist.Steering-responsive LED headlights are now standard.A second- and third-row seat-belt reminder is now standard.

PROS
Substantial list of standard and optional driving aids
High-quality interior materials
Generous ground clearance and standard all-wheel drive
Easy-to-use infotainment system

CONS
Accelerator pedal is too touchy
Invasive engine and tire noise
Not much second-row shoulder room, and third row is tight
Rolling over bumps at higher speeds sends vibrations through the cabin

By:

The latest Ascent receives a handful of new standard features for 2021. These include LED headlights that turn with the steering wheel as well as automatic high-beams. The Touring model also adds another leather upholstery option: Slate Black with silver stitching. And as if the Ascent's incessant beeping notifications weren't annoying enough, all models now have a seat-belt chime that's meant to remind second- and third-row passengers to buckle up.

Pros
Flexible seating configurations,
cushy ride quality,
every model comes with driver assists.

Cons
Apathetic passing power,
noisy engine during hard acceleration,
third row smaller than some rivals.
