Subaru Ascent vs Honda Pilot: A Head-To-Head Comparison

  • While the Honda Pilot offers a 3.5-liter V6 engine that outputs 280 horsepower, it doesn't match the maximum torque output of the Subaru Ascent's 277 pound-feet. You'll get more power to your wheels with the Ascent.
  • The Subaru Ascent comes standard with symmetrical all-wheel drive to ensure you're ready for off-road action or quick weather changes. The Honda Pilot can be ready as well, but it requires you to pay more to unlock its all-wheel drive.
  • When both models are equipped with all-wheel drive, the Subaru Ascent provides more efficient driving experiences with 21/27 mpg city/highway. The Honda Pilot can't match these totals even when not using all-wheel drive.

  • Subaru provides a bit more space for your eight passengers to stretch out with 153.5 cubic feet of passenger space to the Honda Pilot's 152.9 cubic feet of space.
  • The Ascent offers LED Steering Responsive Headlights to move with the road ahead of you and keep things well-lit. The Honda Pilot doesn't include this feature at all.
