2021 Subaru Ascent vs. 2020 Honda Pilot

Powerful and Efficient Engine

The Ascent comes standard with a direct-injection turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine that supplies an impressive 277 pound-feet of torque and an available 5,000-pound towing capacity. With little turbo lag, the Ascent offers a spirited drive thanks to its impressive torque output. The Honda Pilot features a nine-speed transmission that displays imprecise upshifts and rough downshifts, making the Ascent the better choice if you want a smoother driving experience.

Performance and Handling

The Ascent offers good steering manners and body control, making it easier to drive around town than the Honda Pilot. Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive helps to improve the Ascent's stability and traction, allowing drivers to have more confidence in every moment spent behind the wheel, especially when inclement weather makes driving more difficult. AWD is only available if you upgrade the Honda Pilot.

Audio System

The Ascent comes standard with SUBARU STARLINK Multimedia, which comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are only available if you jump up a rung on the Honda Pilot trim ladder. Additionally, the Ascent's audio system is easier to operate thanks to its user-friendly layout. The Pilot audio system only has a volume knob, requiring those in the front row to use the touchscreen for station tuning. The Ascent's infotainment display also features crisper, cleaner upgraded graphics.

Interior Design

With a comfortable and attractive interior that boasts a pleasing, earthy appeal to it, the Ascent delivers a better in-cabin experience to drivers and passengers alike. The Ascent boasts a thoughtful layout that makes it easier for passengers to access the third-row seats, making the Ascent as functional as it is pleasing to the eye. The Pilot suffers from a narrow third row, hard and uncomfortable seating, and unimaginative interior design, making the Ascent the more road-trip-friendly option. The Ascent also offers up to 86.5 cubic feet of max cargo space, outshining the Pilot. Technology lovers will find the Subaru Ascent user friendly and better equipped, as the Pilot suffers from a less ergonomic setup and dated graphics.
