I like the new Passport & the new RAV4, there are certainly pros and cons for each, depending on each persons needs.
I like the small footprint, handling, features, and mpg of the RAV, but I'm not crazy about the color selection for the Adventure models and I priced one out in the Build-your-own Toyota site and came out at $40,770, which is a ton for a entry level SUV.
For the Passport, I like the bigger size, as I need to load it up for camping, and while neither is gonna climb Pike's Peak, I think the Honda will prove to be better off-road (gotta wait for the reviewers to get their hands on some actual models). I LOVE the added trunk (under the cargo area) feature of the Passport, I like the bigger engine, mpg (based on the Pilot getting 19city & 27highway) should be at least 20city and 28highway, which is fine with me since I don't drive much more than 6k miles/yr. I'm guessing, the interior is going to be nicer and leather seats are available. A nicely loaded Pilot can run in the $45k to $48k range, and I don't see the Passport being too much less than that, but if I price out one in the $43k/$45k range with leather and a 6cyl engine, it will make it an easy choice for me.
