Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

PROS
PHEV drivetrain enables limited electric running at speeds up to 135km/h
Excellent blend of everyday comfort, refinement and performance
3500kg towing capacity
It shares its drivetrain with the Porsche Cayenne E-Hybrid

CONS
PHEV drivetrain adds handsomely to the weight
Li-ion battery robs 70L of boot space
Lacks the traditional hardened performance focus for which Volkswagen R models are renowned

“A curious mix of speed and efficiency with a big dollop of comfort. It's just not especially fun ”

PROS
Comfy,
plush,
quick and a company car bargain

CONS
Not as nimble as a Cayenne

By:

The VW Touareg R is comfortable, well-equipped and effortless to drive, but not sharp or engaging enough to be considered a true sports SUV. That leaves it in somewhat of a no man’s land. Put simply, those looking for a fast yet relatively frugal sports SUV would be better served by the similarly priced Porsche Cayenne e-Hybrid, while those wanting a luxurious and well-rounded plug-in hybrid luxury SUV would be better off with the BMW X5 xDrive45e.

PROS
Well-equipped
Spacious inside for up to five people
Very quiet in electric mode

CONS
Cheap-feeling interior
Fussy infotainment system
Not very exciting to drive

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

By:

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.
