Seeing the CX-5 getting the turbo engine, this is probably Honda's answer to that. From the small sheet metal teased, It already looks exactly like a Pilot - just smaller. Honda already has two vehicles in their lineup that share the look. They should've done something different lookwise.

This is a lot bigger than a CX-5. A CR-V is roomier than a CX-5. This is Honda's Ford Edge and Nissan Murano. The CX-5 isn't a target in any way.

This is the answer to the Toyota Hylander which is #1 in the five passenger class. Honda will use the RDX engine, a beefier version of the CRV AWD and a new CVT. The vehicle will be longer than the CRV, shorter than the Pilot and tow 2000 lbs if we are lucky. What Honda fails to realize is what off road and powerful mean. The Hylander sells because it has a big v6 engine, is not too big and is capable of towing 5000 or more lbs. Honda will beat the Hylander with better gas mileage but, not much else.

My answer to the Hylander would be the Pylot. ;)

In the U.S., Toyota has the Highlander which competes with the Honda Pilot as both are three-row midsize SUVs.

The current Highlander is a three row competitor to the pilot that actually comes standard with a 185 hp 4 cylinder engine at the same price that Honda will give you a V6 in the Pilot. Since the Passport is literally going to be a short wheelbase Pilot it'll be sharing the same V6 9 speed combo and the AWD models should be able to tow 5000 pounds like the Pilot does.
