Subaru Ascent vs. the competition
2019 Subaru Ascent
2018 Honda Pilot
Subaru Ascent vs. Honda Pilot
The Pilot is among the cars that defined the three-row SUV segment. The latest model looks sharp, with a comfortable ride and interior. It also boasts a powerful V6 engine, and when the Honda is equipped with all-wheel drive, both models match each other for towing capacity. But the Pilot comes up a bit shy in maximum cargo.
Subaru Ascent vs. Mazda CX-9
Both models are sporty, although the Mazda's edge comes on paved roads and twisting turns, while the Ascent's performance advantage lies in getting off the paved road. And thought the CX-9 is actually a bit longer than the Ascent, the Subaru makes better use of its space, coming up with more usable cargo area. The CX-9 also has a rated towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds, well shy of the Ascent.
Subaru Ascent vs. Chevrolet Traverse
The Traverse is king of the three-row jungle, at least in terms of sheer size. It looks massive because it is, outpacing most of its rivals in overall volume. But the Ascent pulls up a close second where it counts: third-row legroom, cargo space and utility. Like the Pilot, the Traverse offers a stout V6 engine, but it's less fuel-efficient than the Ascent. And the Traverse is just plain big — and feels big from behind the wheel.
2019 Subaru Ascent video
[Music] this is the Subaru ascent concept and it's a preview of a production version of a three row 7 passenger SUV that Subaru is going to release next year of the same name now this is a significant vehicle for Subaru because it's the biggest vehicle they've ever made it's bigger than a Volkswagen Atlas in every dimension and if you remember the Tribeca this looks a whole lot better than the Tribeca and I think that's going to do really well for the interior on this concept looks pretty killer but you can expect a lot of the concept car flourishes won't make it into the production example but still it's got really nice perforated leather wood metal trim it looks like a really premium experience so if Subarus doing it right they're going to incorporate a lot of those elements into the production version what do you think of a Subaru ascent leave us a comment below
