2020 Subaru Ascent vs. Honda Pilot

When your daily adventures call for a dependable vehicle that offers plenty of space, seating, and safety tech, the 2020 Subaru Ascent rises to the occasion. With a roomy interior, ample power under the hood, and a robust suite of safety and infotainment features, the Ascent is well-equipped to help you and your family tackle just about any journey with a healthy dose of Subaru flair. Even when rivals like the Honda Pilot step up to issue a challenge, the Ascent soars over the competition.

More Room for Passengers and Cargo

Any way you slice it, the Ascent offers more space than the Honda Pilot. With more passenger volume, more max cargo space, and more room behind the second and third rows, the Ascent has more space to work with, which is ideal if you need to accommodate extra occupants or gear on (or that weird piece of furniture that you found at a yard sale) the fly. The Ascent also offers more front headroom and legroom, making it more comfortable during long drives.

 

Standard All-Wheel Drive

Only the Subaru Ascent comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, a refined AWD system that works to improve stability and traction. Weather in Vermont often throws more than its fair share of temper tantrums, making AWD an invaluable feature if you're looking for a boost of confidence and more control over your drive year-round. You'll have to pay to upgrade the Honda Pilot to get AWD.

Plentiful Tech Features

The Subaru Ascent comes standard with sought-after features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. While these features are available on the Pilot, you'll have to go up a trim level to get them. Additionally, the Ascent comes equipped with Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, making it exceptionally well-rounded right out of the gate.

2020 Subaru Ascent vs. Kia Sorento

Family adventures call for a family vehicle that has all the equipment you need for a successful and comfortable journey. The 2020 Subaru Ascent is ready to take you and your loved ones wherever you want to go, and it's roomy and well-equipped enough to help keep you entertained and safe along the way. Of course, rivals like the Kia Sorento might try to take its spot, but we're confident that the Ascent is the best pick for adventurous families on the go.

More Room for Your Adventures

If you like having extra space in the cargo hold for luggage, groceries, camping gear, furniture, or any number of other things, the Ascent is better equipped for your needs. With the second and third rows folded down, the Ascent offers a max cargo capacity of 86.5 cubic feet while the Sorento only has 73 cubic feet. Even with all the seats up, the Ascent still offers more cargo space. Additionally, the Ascent comes with seating for eight while the Sorento can only seat seven.

 

Powerful Performance and Capability

All Ascent models come with a potent 260-horsepower engine that yields up to 277 pound-feet of torque. The Ascent also comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, which is an invaluable feature for Vermont drivers looking for more all-weather capability. You'll need to upgrade the Sorento to get AWD and a more powerful engine, which will add a considerable amount more to the cost. So, if you want more capability for less, the Ascent is ready to go.

Standard Safety Technology

The Ascent comes with standard Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, a suite of advanced safety features that use a dual-camera system to help you avoid or mitigate collisions. Features include a forward-collision warning, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, and more. Similar features are available on the Sorento only as parts of an optional package or included in higher trim levels.
