Differentiating Popular New SUVs in Pittsburgh: Subaru Ascent vs. Toyota Highlander

The new Subaru Ascent is a midsize SUV that's ideal for families, outdoor adventurists, and everyone in between. That's because this vehicle is dependable in a range of driving situations and comes with a roomy cabin outfitted with all sorts of convenient features. And despite the new Ascent's many appeals, you might still be considering other options. So, Baierl Subaru wants to help narrow down your options by highlighting differences between the new Ascent and a popular rival, the Toyota Highlander.

New Toyota Highlander

Comparing Performance Features

  • One feature of the new Subaru Ascent that often garners attention is the standard all-wheel-drive system that provides excellent traction on wet pavement or slippery off-road paths. The new Toyota Highlander comes standard with front-wheel drive but offers all-wheel drive as an upgrade for an additional charge.

  • When you feel like taking the new Subaru Ascent off-roading, you can do so with confidence thanks to 8.7 inches of ground clearance, X-Mode traction management, and hill descent control. The new Toyota Highlander has less ground clearance and fewer standard off-roading features, making it less capable when the pavement ends.

Comparing Cabin Space and Features

  • Loading the new Subaru Ascent with your friends, family, and cargo is a breeze inside its cavernous cabin. With up to 86.5 cubic feet of total storage area, you'll always have enough space to haul luggage, camping gear, or project materials. The new Highlander falls short with several cubic feet less in total storage space.

  • You can upgrade the new Subaru Ascent with a premium 14-speaker Harman Kardon audio system for enhanced music listening while traveling. The new Toyota Highlander offers an optional premium stereo but maxes out at just 11 speakers.
