2022 Subaru Ascent vs. 2022 Toyota Highlander

  • When you want to take your adventures off-road, you’ll find that the 2022 Ascent is equipped for any adventure. The iconic Subaru Symmetrical all-wheel drive allows you to take trips off-road for your next camping adventure, and it provides plenty of traction control and handling when the roads turn tricky around Natick. Toyota offers all-wheel drive but it isn’t standard to the lineup.
  • Both models are more than capable of seating eight passengers, focusing on the comforts of the passengers inside. While the Toyota Highlander does offer up to 141.3 cubic feet of passenger volume, the Ascent allows everyone more space to stretch out in with 153.5 cubic feet of space. The 2022 Subaru Ascent manages to make everyone feel more comfortable!
  • While the Ascent continues to offer more standard features and more interior space for you to take advantage of, it does so at a more affordable rate than the Toyota Highlander. The 2022 Subaru Ascent is offered at $32,295, which is almost $3,000 less than the base Toyota model. Adding in all-wheel drive to the Highlander only increases the price, meaning you’ll have less money for optional features.

2022 Subaru Ascent vs. 2022 Ford Explorer

  • Staying entertained and connected while on the road is important to an SUV that enjoys large amounts of passengers and their comforts. The Subaru Ascent comes standard with the Subaru STARLINK® Multimedia infotainment in 6.5- and 8.0-inch screen sizes and offers seamless integration of your music and streaming apps with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™. The Explorer offers these, but they aren’t standing.
  • Going off-road is easy with either SUV, whether you enjoy the Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive or the Intelligent Four-Wheel Drive that the Ford Explorer employs for adventures. However, the Subaru equips all-wheel drive standard, making it the ideal SUV for Norwood drivers. The Ford SUV requires you to pay more for the same equipment.
  • Enjoying the ride with passengers is comfortably easy with the Subaru Ascent as it is capable of seating eight without any trouble at all. The Ford Explorer base model can only seat seven, so you need to upgrade trim levels to find space for one more passenger.

2022 Subaru Ascent vs. 2022 Honda Pilot

  • Large SUVs aren’t always known for their efficiency, but these two options put that worry to rest with efficient fuel economies that allow you to wait longer in between trips to the gas pump. The Subaru Ascent offers 21/27 mpg city/highway when equipped with all-wheel drive, while the Honda Pilot even less in the city with only front-wheel drive. Adding all-wheel drive costs you more and lowers those values.
  • If you’re looking for more cargo space, you’ll find that the Subaru Ascent comes standard with raised roof rails. These can come in handy when you need room for your bike rack or additional cargo space. The Honda Pilot only offers these features with the top trim level.
  • The 2022 Ascent comes standard with plenty of innovative technology to ensure that you and everyone with you can enjoy the trip from start to finish. The Ascent comes equipped with a touchscreen infotainment system and smartphone integration in every model, while the Pilot doesn’t offer the same amenities until you upgrade to higher trim options and spend more.
