Which SUV is better: Atlas vs Passport?

Finding the best SUV doesn’t come down to price alone, but if it did, the Atlas is already coming in hot at over $1,000 less than the Passport. If you are buying an SUV, you’ll want to save money, and lucky for you, the fully-featured Atlas still values keeping money in your wallet.

If you have a big family, then the Passport is already not an option. It only offers seating for five in its two rows. The Atlas gives you three rows with seating for up to seven depending on your configuration.

Remember when we said the Atlas values keeping money in your wallet? That trend continues when it comes to standard gas mileage. Both of these models have available AWD, but when looking at these two models in their standard FWD configuration, it’s clear that the Atlas will keep you from burning all your money at the pumps.

Finally, we come back to the interior room. You may think that because the Atlas packs up to seven people in its interior, it is lacking in space, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, the Atlas offers both more legroom and more headroom to front row passengers than its Honda counterpart. Which would you rather take on a long road trip?
