For enhanced safety, the front seat shoulder belts of the Honda Passport are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger heights. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up. The Jaguar F-Pace doesn’t offer height-adjustable seat belts.

Using vehicle speed sensors and seat sensors, smart airbags in the Passport deploy with different levels of force or don’t deploy at all to help better protect passengers of all sizes in different collisions. The Passport’s side airbags will shut off if a child is leaning against the door. The F-Pace’s airbags don’t have smart features and will always deploy full force.

Compared to metal, the Passport’s plastic fuel tank can withstand harder, more intrusive impacts without leaking; this decreases the possibility of fire. The Jaguar F-Pace has a metal gas tank.

Both the Passport and the F-Pace have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, side-impact head airbags, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, crash mitigating brakes, daytime running lights, lane departure warning systems, rearview cameras, available all wheel drive, blind spot warning systems, rear parking sensors and rear cross-path warning.


There are over 6 times as many Honda dealers as there are Jaguar dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the Passport’s warranty.


J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 Initial Quality Study of new car owners surveyed provide the statistics that show that Honda vehicles are better in initial quality than Jaguar vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Honda 23rd in initial quality. With 46 more problems per 100 vehicles, Jaguar is ranked 30th.

J.D. Power and Associates’ 2018 survey of the owners of three-year-old vehicles provides the long-term dependability statistics that show that Honda vehicles are more reliable than Jaguar vehicles. J.D. Power ranks Honda 12th in reliability, above the industry average. With 19 more problems per 100 vehicles, Jaguar is ranked 20th.


The Passport’s 3.5 SOHC V6 produces 33 more horsepower (280 vs. 247) than the F-Pace 25t’s standard 2.0 turbo 4 cyl.

Fuel Economy and Range

On the EPA test cycle the Passport AWD gets better fuel mileage than the F-Pace S 3.0 Supercharged V6 (19 city/24 hwy vs. 18 city/23 hwy).

An engine control system that can shut down half of the engine’s cylinders helps improve the Passport’s fuel efficiency. The F-Pace doesn’t offer a system that can shut down part of the engine.

To lower fuel costs and make buying fuel easier, the Honda Passport uses regular unleaded gasoline. The F-Pace requires premium, which can cost 20 to 55 cents more per gallon.

The Passport has 3.6 gallons more fuel capacity than the F-Pace Diesel’s standard fuel tank (19.5 vs. 15.9 gallons), for longer range between fill-ups.

The Passport has a standard cap-less fueling system. The fuel filler is automatically opened when the fuel nozzle is inserted and automatically closed when it’s removed. This eliminates the need to unscrew and replace the cap and it reduces fuel evaporation, which causes pollution. The F-Pace doesn’t offer a cap-less fueling system.


A nine-speed automatic is standard on the Honda Passport, for better acceleration and lower engine speed on the highway. Only an eight-speed automatic is available for the F-Pace.

Tires and Wheels

The Passport Sport/EX-L’s standard tires provide better handling because they have a lower 50 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the F-Pace Base’s standard 60 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Passport has standard 20-inch wheels. Smaller 18-inch wheels are standard on the F-Pace Base.

The Passport has a standard easy tire fill system. When inflating the tires, the vehicle’s integrated tire pressure sensors keep track of the pressure as the tires fill and tell the driver when the tires are inflated to the proper pressure. The F-Pace doesn’t offer vehicle monitored tire inflation.

Suspension and Handling

For better handling and stability, the average track (width between the wheels) on the Passport is 2.1 inches wider in the front and 1.5 inches wider in the rear than the average track on the F-Pace.

For greater off-road capability the Passport has a 2.2 inches greater minimum ground clearance than the F-Pace SVR (8.1 vs. 5.9 inches), allowing the Passport to travel over rougher terrain without being stopped or damaged. The Passport’s minimum ground clearance is 1.8 inches higher than on the F-Pace (8.1 vs. 6.3 inches).


The Passport uses computer-generated active noise cancellation to help remove annoying noise and vibration from the passenger compartment, especially at low frequencies. The F-Pace doesn’t offer active noise cancellation.

Passenger Space

The Passport has 19.9 cubic feet more passenger volume than the F-Pace (115.9 vs. 96).

The Passport has 2.3 inches more front headroom, .6 inches more front legroom, 4.3 inches more front shoulder room, 2.6 inches more rear headroom, 2.4 inches more rear legroom and 6.1 inches more rear shoulder room than the F-Pace.

Cargo Capacity

The Passport has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat up than the F-Pace with its rear seat up (41.2 vs. 33.5 cubic feet). The Passport has a much larger cargo volume with its rear seat folded than the F-Pace with its rear seat folded (77.9 vs. 63.5 cubic feet).


To shield the driver and front passenger’s vision over a larger portion of the windshield and side windows, the Passport has standard extendable sun visors. The F-Pace doesn’t offer extendable visors.

The Passport Touring/Elite has a 115-volt a/c outlet, allowing you to recharge a laptop or run small household appliances without special adapters that can break or get misplaced. The F-Pace doesn’t offer a house-current electrical outlet.

Model Availability

The Passport is available in both front-wheel drive and four-wheel drive configurations. The F-Pace doesn’t offer a two-wheel drive configuration.
