Compare Against the Competition


The 2021 Ascent offers standard Symmetrical All-Wheel-Drive, while models such as the Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot come with standard front-wheel-drive. All-Wheel-Drive is an option for the Highlander, Pilot, and new Mazda CX-9, but the Subaru Ascent offers the guaranteed traction and control of All-Wheel-Drive performance across all trim levels. The Ascent is also more powerful than the new Honda Pilot, with a highly capable 277-horsepower engine.

Interior Spaciousness

The 2021 Ascent offers more front and rear legroom than the competition with 42.2". Settling in for the ride is never an issue when traveling with the latest Ascent, as the model features a luxurious interior cabin with more seating than the Mazda CX-9 while offering increased cargo space from the Highlander and Pilot. Despite its spacious and versatile interior, the Ascent has a smaller overall length than the Mazda CX-9 at 196.8" inches, while offering a track width of 64.4", lower than that of the new Toyota Highlander.
