2022 Subaru Ascent Overview

North Coast Subaru is your local Subaru dealership serving Glen Cove Oyster Bay Long Island, and we are delighted to announce that we now have the 2022 Subaru Ascent available to test-drive, lease and own. The Ascent continues to be one of our most popular vehicles. It is a midsize three-row crossover that exudes that iconic Subaru charm. It is an excellent alternative to a minivan, and it delivers all the practicality of an SUV without the cramped quarters of smaller crossovers and without the larger size and environmental footprint of bigger SUVs. Another popular vehicle in this segment is the Honda Pilot, and with that in mind, let us compare the 2022 Subaru Ascent vs 2022 Honda Pilot.

Glen Cove NY - 2022 Subaru Ascent's Overview

Exterior - Subaru Dealer serving Glen Cove NY

Both companies have taken very different approaches to the exterior design. Subaru is well known for its station wagon designs, and that inspiration is very much in play here as well. The 2022 Honda Pilot, on the other hand, has a design that looks like a cross between a minivan and an SUV. In terms of overall size, however, the differences are not substantial. The Ascent has a 113.8-inch wheelbase and measures 196.8 inches long—16.4 feet—whereas the Pilot has a 111.0-inch wheelbase and measures 196.5 inches in length. The Pilot is wider than the Ascent—78.6 vs 76.0 inches—but the Ascent stands a bit taller: 71.6 vs 70.6 inches. In both cases, the wheels are alloy, and sizes range from 18 to 20 inches.

Both the 2022 Subaru Ascent and the 2022 Honda Pilot give you the option of seven-passenger seating in a 2-2-3 configuration and eight-passenger seating in 2-3-3 configuration. Note that which layouts are available often depends on the trim level. The Subaru interior design is notable in that it provides more overall passenger volume. This is more than just technicalities on a spec sheet and can be felt when you sit in these interiors. The Ascent gives you more front headroom—41.3 vs 39.5 inches—more front legroom—42.2 vs 40.9 inches—more dedicated cargo space—17.8 vs 16.5 cubic feet—and more overall cargo: 86.5 vs 83.8 cubic feet. The differences in second-row and third-row legroom are nominal. Most of the interior features available for the Ascent are available for the Pilot as well. However, the base Ascent model has a more robust equipment package with features like zone auto temperature control.

Both Subaru and Honda have excellent reputations when it comes to technologies and safety, and that makes this 2022 Subaru Ascent vs 2022 Honda Pilot comparison interesting. In this comparison, a knock against the Honda is that the base model features only a 5.0-inch central touchscreen. The base touchscreen in the Subaru is not massively bigger at 6.5 inches, but it has been critically praised for its responsiveness and large easy-to-read visuals, which is not the case with the Pilot. Both Subaru and Honda equip their vehicles with a standard suite of driver-assistance technologies, and in both cases, you have to move up a trim level to get a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-path detection.
