2020 Subaru Ascent

Compare the 2020 Subaru Ascent to the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, and Mazda CX-9

Drivers who are looking for three-row SUVs have a variety of options that all offer relatively similar experiences for commutes and weekend excursions. However, when you want to find out the one that does things a bit better than the rest, we recommend climbing into the driver's seat of the 2020 Subaru Ascent. If you're looking to enhance your driving experience, nothing does it quite like the new Ascent, and even when it's compared to popular models from Honda, Toyota, and Mazda, it comes out ahead in many different categories. See how it stacks up head-to-head down below!

Subaru Ascent vs Honda Pilot

  • Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive: When you want to take your adventures off-road, the Subaru Ascent makes it easy with standard all-wheel drive to help improve traction and control. The Honda Pilot offers all-wheel drive, but only as an option that will cost more.
  • Technology: The Subaru Ascent comes standard with a 6.5-inch touchscreen and smartphone integration for easy music listening. The Honda Pilot does not come standard with a touchscreen and requires an upgrade to a more expensive trim for smartphone integration.
  • Engine Output: Even though the Honda Pilot comes with a 3.5-liter V6 to the Subaru's 2.4-liter turbocharged engine, the Ascent offers a higher pound-feet of torque output to provide more power to its wheels.

Subaru Ascent vs Toyota Highlander

  • Passenger Volume: The Toyota Highlander pales in comparison to the Subaru Ascent when passenger comfort is considered. The Ascent offers almost 10 more cubic feet of space to stretch out in.
  • Standard AWD: The Toyota Highlander does offer all-wheel drive, but you need to spend more money to unlock it. The Subaru Ascent comes standard with symmetrical all-wheel drive.
  • 4G LTE Hotspot: If you want to stay connected while on the go, the Subaru Ascent offers a 4G LTE Wi-FI hotspot. The Toyota Highlander does not offer this feature at all.

Subaru Ascent vs Mazda CX-9
