2020 Subaru Ascent vs 2020 Honda Pilot

Serving Charlottesville, VA

While the Honda Pilot has been a popular three-row SUV for years, the Subaru Ascent is a newcomer to the market. The Ascent entered its second year on the market in 2020. Which of these crossovers will live up to your lifestyle’s needs and your expectations?


The 2020 Subaru Ascent expresses a balance between contemporary style and athleticism throughout its exterior design. It brings the perfect touch of accentuation to its rolling profile. Some of the many features on the Ascent’s exterior are integrated turning signals, chrome accents, a power-operated liftgate, power-folding side mirrors, and more. The Honda Pilot is available in many trim levels, and its equipment becomes more sophisticated as you step up to more expensive trims. For 2020, the Pilot has a tall cabin with a short, rounded nose. Across the nose, the integrated grille and headlights generate an extended look from the front view.


Both the 2020 Ascent and the 2020 Pilot have roomy interiors with an available amount of cargo space in the rear. They also have folding capabilities across the second and third rows, leather seats in select trim levels, and other shared features. The Ascent has EyeSight safety technologies, a panoramic moonroof, wireless connectivity, a push-button ignition, and other gear. The Pilot comes with Honda Sensing safety features, a sound system, a push-button starter, powered front seat adjustments, and more.


One of the more significant differences between the 2020 Ascent and the 2020 Pilot behind the wheel is the Ascent’s all-wheel drive. All trim levels for the 2020 model year have all-wheel drive as a standard feature, which is only an option for the Pilot. Both models deliver at least 260 horsepower behind the wheel across their full trim lineups.
