The New Subaru Ascent Compared to the New Honda Pilot

Since you may be curious about how the new Subaru Ascent stacks up against one of its closest competitors, we compared it to the new Honda Pilot. These two midsize SUVs are about the same length and they both have three rows of seats that hold seven to eight people. But when you look closer, there are some significant differences. At Don Miller Subaru East, we think the Ascent offers more of what Madison, WI families want in an SUV.

The Ascent Has More Passenger Room

One of the most important considerations when purchasing a family SUV is how spacious it is. If you have a growing family, you want to be sure they can be comfortable in the vehicle on long trips. Since your kids will keep getting bigger, it's best to have as much room to stretch out as possible. Both the Subaru Ascent and the Honda Pilot seat up to eight people, but Waunakee drivers will appreciate that the Ascent has 153.5 cubic feet of passenger volume, compared to 152.9 cubic feet for the Pilot. It also has more front head room, and more first- and second-row leg room than the Honda Pilot:

  • Front head room: Subaru Ascent - 41.3 inches. Honda Pilot: 40.1 inches.
  • Front leg room: Subaru Ascent - 42.2 inches. Honda Pilot: 40.9 inches.
  • Second-row leg room: Subaru Ascent - 38.6 inches. Honda Pilot: 38.4 inches.

The Ascent Has More Cargo Space

Of course, a good family SUV should also have plenty of room for vacation luggage and the kid's toys. People in Sun Prairie will like that the Subaru Ascent has 86.5 cubic feet of total cargo space, including 17.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the last row and 47.5 cubic feet behind the second row. The Honda Pilot only has 83.9 cubic feet of total cargo room, with 16.5 cubic feet behind the third row and 46.8 cubic feet of space behind the second row.

The Ascent Has Superior Interior Quality

Both the Subaru Ascent and the Honda Pilot have nice cabins, but the Pilot's interior design is starting to show its age. Its materials aren't as refined as the Ascent, which has more soft-touch surfaces and a more premium fit and finish.

The Ascent Has a Better Standard Infotainment System

The Subaru Ascent's base trim comes with a much better infotainment system than the Honda Pilot's entry-level model. Watertown, WI drivers who want to enjoy their favorite smartphone apps on the road will appreciate that the Ascent comes standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. Its Starlink infotainment system also comes with a 6.5-inch touch screen, satellite radio, Bluetooth, four USB ports, and six speakers. The Honda Pilot's standard infotainment system only consists of a 5-inch display, seven speakers, two USB ports, and Bluetooth.

The Ascent Has Standard All-Wheel Drive

The Subaru Ascent comes standard with symmetrical all-wheel drive, which helps you get better traction on snow-covered roads in Madison. All-wheel drive is available on the Honda Pilot, but you must pay more to get it.

The Ascent Is More Fuel-Efficient

Most people in Waunakee would rather spend less on gas, and the Subaru Ascent gets a thrifty 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway when properly equipped. The Honda Pilot gets 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, which is only one mpg less than the Ascent, but the miles add up over time.
