Overall, it's clear that the Subaru Ascent dominates the competition in almost every category. The Subaru Ascent is slightly larger than the Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot. It also has the same fuel economy rating as the Toyota Highlander and better than the Honda Pilot all while maintaining the highest ground clearance of the three. There's even more passenger and cargo space in the Subaru Ascent than the Toyota Highlander or Honda Pilot. And to top it all off the Subaru Ascent is the most affordable option of the three.
