Pilot vs. Ascent: Performance and Capability

Subaru has spent decades fostering a reputation for rugged capability, so it’s surprising to see the Subaru Ascent fitted with a four-cylinder engine that can’t keep up with the Honda Pilot’s cutting-edge V6. You’ll make:

  • Up to 280 hp in the Honda Pilot.
  • Up to 260 hp in the Subaru Ascent.

Those numbers make a difference whether you’re accelerating at speed on the highway or maneuvering at low speed in the city. They also affect capability specs – you’ll tow:

  • Up to 3,500 lbs. as standard with the Honda CR-V.
  • Up to 2,000 lbs. as standard with the Subaru Ascent.

Pilot vs. Ascent: Dimensions

You can choose between 8-passenger seating as standard or 7-passenger seating with available 2nd row captain’s chairs with both the Honda Pilot and the Subaru Ascent, but the former is more impressive when you turn to cargo space. There’s:

  • Up to 109.0 cubic feet behind the 1st row of the Honda Pilot.
  • Up to 86.5 cubic feet behind the 1st row of the Subaru Ascent.

Pilot vs. Ascent: Features

Both the 2021 Honda Pilot and the 2021 Subaru Ascent offer a wide range of features, but the Pilot still comes ahead. It’s the only model of the two that offers:

  • 10-Way Power Driver’s Seat with Power Lumbar Support
  • CabinTalk® In-Car PA System
  • 10.2-inch High-Resolution Advanced Rear Entertainment System
  • Multi-Angle Rearview Camera

Whether you’re looking for added peace of mind as you slip into tight parking spaces or the ability to keep rear passengers entertained during longer journeys, the Pilot will speak to you louder than the Ascent.
