Compare the Subaru Ascent vs. the Honda Pilot in Pittsburgh PA

How the New Subaru Ascent in Pittsburgh Outshines the New Honda Pilot

Of all the SUVs on the market, the new Subaru Ascent has no trouble standing out and making a name for itself. That's because it boasts reliable and versatile performance, an airy cabin, and numerous high-tech features. And while it's a clear winner in the eyes of our team at Baierl Subaru, it might not be the only model on your radar. That's why we're highlighting how the new Subaru Ascent beats out another popular competitor, the new Honda Pilot, allowing you to make a more informed choice.


New Honda Pilot

Performance Differences

  • These midsize SUVs feel powerful and energetic, but they differ in standard drivetrains. The new Ascent comes with a confidence-inspiring all-wheel-drive system that will allow your adventures to keep going in bad weather. The new Honda Pilot comes standard with front-wheel drive, meaning not as great of traction on wet roads.

  • Even with all-wheel drive as the standard drivetrain, the new Subaru Ascent is impressively efficient, getting an EPA-estimated 21 mpg in town and 27 mpg on the highway. When equipped with available all-wheel drive, the new Honda Pilot struggles to keep up, delivering an EPA-estimated 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.

Technology Differences

  • Inside the base Honda Pilot models, you'll find a basic 5-inch infotainment display that's not the easiest to see when driving. The new Subaru Ascent has a standard 6.5-inch touchscreen display mounted on the dash that's a breeze to use thanks to its responsiveness, simple menus, and crisp graphics.

  • One modern feature more drivers are requesting is a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot to stay connected when on the go. Thankfully, the new Ascent offers this feature on the second trim package, meaning you won't have to spend much extra to gain this feature. If you want Wi-Fi on the new Honda Pilot, you'll have to work up to the higher trim packages, meaning a more costly upgrade.
