See How the 2019 Subaru Ascent Compares to the 2019 Toyota Highlander

Modern crossovers are the talk of the town, and it is so easy to see why. There are plenty of drivers around Acton who need to stand out during family-hauling duties while their vehicles boast solid performance capabilities and outstanding fuel economy ratings. And of course, having an eye-catching exterior design is a huge advantage, but having a reasonable price tag is even more of an advantage.

Here at Village Subaru, we would like to compare our 2019 Subaru Ascent to one of its well-known competitors, the 2019 Toyota Highlander. There are many benefits to driving both SUVs, but we're here to tell you why drivers in our area tend to lean toward the Subaru Ascent for their daily commute.

The Subaru Ascent vs. the Toyota Highlander: A Head-to-Head Battle

  • The Subaru Ascent has greater ground clearance than the Toyota Highlander: 8.7-inches vs. 8.0-inches.
  • The Ascent is also bigger in length, width, and height: 197-inches, 76-inches, and 72-inches compared to 191-inches, 76-inches, and 68-inches.
  • Both SUVs offer second-row captain's chairs or a second-row bench seat.
  • Only the Subaru Ascent offers a Boxer engine. Under the hood, you will find the 2.4-liter turbo SUBARU BOXER® with Continuously variable automatic transmission. The Highlander comes powered by a 3.5 Liter V6 with an 8-speed automatic transmission.
  • The Ascent also gets better-combined fuel economy than the Highlander: 20 city, 26 highway vs. 19 city, 26 highway. Meaning, the Subaru SUV can travel up to 502 miles on just one tank of gas.
  • The Subaru Ascent comes standard with its legendary Symmetrical All Wheel Drive.

All our 2019 Subaru Ascent models come equipped with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive for quick handling no matter the driving conditions. The Direct-Injection Turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine delivers an impressive 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. Thanks to the 19.3 gallons of fuel capacity, you will be making fewer stops at the gas station than you would if you were driving a Toyota Highlander. That way, you can spend more time on the road focusing on the things you love to do.

Subaru Safety and Security: Standard in the Subaru Ascent

With an SUV that is big on performance, it's safe to say you're going to need the best safety features to keep you and your loved ones out of harm's way. That said, the 2019 Ascent features standard Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology-which is something the Toyota Highlander does not offer. This system will keep an eye on traffic movement, will optimize cruise control, and will let you know if you drift out of your lane unintentionally. When it comes to advanced features, the Pre-Collision Braking feature will apply the brakes for you in emergencies.

Driving around in an Ascent is like having an extra set of eyes on the road. Our Ascent models are always thinking about the safety and security of your loved ones.
