How Does the New 2019 Subaru Ascent Match Up to the Toyota Highlander?

If you're looking for a spacious and safe three-row SUV that's fit for the whole family, look no further than the new 2019 Subaru Ascent. The Ascent was designed specifically with families in mind, offering three comfortable rows of seating for up to eight passengers, a suite of standard safety technology with even more features available and a performance that's both versatile and fun. While there's plenty of three-row SUVs to choose from on the market, none can tout the same level of capability and functionality as the new 2019 Ascent, and to showcase it, we're going to highlight some of the benefits it can offer you when compared to the new Toyota Highlander!

Whatever your plans are behind the wheel, the new Ascent has you covered for everything thanks to standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive on every model, providing you with the utmost handling, traction, control and above all, enjoyment wherever you go. The Highlander, however, comes equipped with standard front-wheel drive. The Ascent offers a more powerful standard engine than the Highlander does, producing 260-horsepower and allowing you to tow up to 5,000 pounds while the standard engine in the Highlander falls short with 185-horsepower. Space should always play a large factor when looking for a new family SUV, and the Ascent delivers with 153.5 cubic feet of passenger volume while the Highlander offers 144.9 cubic feet of passenger volume. For you and yours entertainment on the road, the Ascent comes with a standard Starlink multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The standard Toyota Entune system offers neither.
