Two vehicles drivers frequently compare to the new Ascent are the Toyota Highlander and Volkswagen Atlas. And, while both competing SUVs have plenty to offer, they don't deliver the same amount of performance, economy, and versatility as the Ascent. Don't believe us? See the comparison below to decide for yourself, then see how the Subaru lineup compares to the competition.


Subaru Ascent vs. Toyota Highlander

  • Performance
    Under the hood of each SUV you'll find a four-cylinder engine, except in the Ascent you'll get a legendary Subaru Boxer engine. This sturdy engine produces 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque, far superior to the Highlander's standard 185 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque.
  • Fuel Economy and Range
    The all-new Ascent doesn't only deliver superior power than the Highlander, it also outperforms the Highlander on the efficiency front. Delivering up to 21 mpg city, 27 mpg on the highway, and a fuel range of up to 521 miles, you'll take your adventures further in the new Ascent.
  • Comfort and Capability
    A family SUV isn't practical unless it provides comfort and capability for your busy life. That's why the Ascent deliver front/rear headroom and legroom than the Highlander and superior cargo space of 17.8 cubic feet.


Subaru Ascent vs. Volkswagen Atlas

  • Performance
    The Volkswagen Atlas might pack a turbocharged engine, but the Ascent still outperforms the Atlas. The Subaru Boxer engine in the Subaru Ascent provides 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque compared to the 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque made by the Atlas engine.
  • Capability and Comfort
    While both vehicles are similar in size, the Ascent provides more family-friendly capability. The Ascent provides seating for up to eight while the Atlas only accommodates 7 and the Ascent gives the front and rear seat passengers greater legroom for long car rides.
  • Efficiency and Fuel Range
    Efficiency is important, even in a large family SUV. And, while the turbocharged engine of the Atlas makes strides to compete on the highway with the Ascent, it still falls short in highway mpg and fuel range.
