In this in-depth comparison, we're putting the all-new 2019 Subaru Ascent Touring vs. the 2018 Honda Pilot Elite, its biggest rival. These two three-rows are fully LOADED trims, but most of the information will also apply to the lower trim levels. We will look at many categories like interior comfort and features, exterior features and design, third rows, interior ergonomics, technology (infotainment), rear seat comfort, tow ratings, safety ratings, powertrain info and much more. So come join us as we sample these two automotive delicacies and see which one is the best value!

Be sure to read my full review here: www.leftlanenews.com/first-drive-2019-subaru-ascent-video-review-100546.html Subaru's last attempt at a three-row family SUV didn't go so well. It was called the B9 Tribeca, and it was a total flop. With that failure squarely in the rearview mirror, Subaru is pressing on with its latest family SUV, the eight- (or seven) passenger Ascent.
With continued growth in the US market, Subaru continues to enjoy strong sales and impressive new products. One particular area where the company has struggled is when owners outgrow their Outback and Forester. They tried their hand with the B9 Tribeca back in 2006, it was uniquely Subaru in every way, but didn't win over American shoppers who have a need for more space. For 2019, Subaru took everything they learned from the Tribeca and gave the Ascent exactly what Americans wanted: more room, power, luxury, and capability. The end result is quite an impressive new SUV that blends elements of the stalwart players from Honda and Toyota into a more appealing package, its a must drive if you are looking for a 3-row SUV right now.

From the driver's seat, the Ascent's packaging continues to display Subaru's pragmatic philosophy to car design. All the gauges are easy to see and read at a glance, knobs and buttons are easy to locate — both those of the software-based touchscreen infotainment system and the physical ones on the steering wheel and center stack. We had a harder time than normal finding a comfortable driving position in the Ascent, but eventually settled with the steering wheel telescoped further away from the dash than normal and with the seat pulled in tight.We did eventually find a good fit, but we have a feeling that smaller drivers may find the driving position more awkward than larger drivers.
Compare the Ascent with two of the best-selling competitors in its class, the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander, and Subaru's offering looks perfectly sized on paper. In practice, a six-foot passenger will have plenty of room in the second row, which is adjustable for leg room and seatback angle. On upper trim levels, buyers can choose between a pair of captain's chairs or a three-passenger bench. There's no price difference between the two options, so it's really just a matter of need. We tested both setups and walked away thinking they were just about equal in terms of comfort.
Third-row passengers are treated better in the Ascent than in some competitors, like the Toyota Highlander, which feels extremely tight. If the middle-seat occupants are willing to slide their seats forward a bit, there's adequate legroom for a six-footer in the way back. Two reasonably sized adults could sit back there for a little while, if necessary, but their heads may be grazing the headliner. It's really more suitable for kids, who will enjoy a bevy of cupholders, tablet holders, and USB chargers to make the miles pass more quickly. There are 19 cupholders in all, which seems ridiculous until you consider that they'll end up acting as cubbies for the storage of a lot more than just cups.Automotive Cars News,Review, Detailed Review, Road Test, Driven, Drive Review, car, cars, auto, 2018, 2019, Subaru Ascent, Ascent, Subaru, Tribeca, 2019 Subaru, 2019 Subaru Ascent, 2019 Ascent, Ascent 2019, Turbo, AWD, Best, Best Value, Best Crossover, Three-row Subaru, 8 seat, 7 seat, Highlander, Pilot, Pathfinder,
