There are a lot of SUVs on the road all claiming to be the best for your family. But none can quite compare to the brand new 2019 Subaru Ascent and we aren't the only ones who think so. Critiques and drivers alike are praising the 2019 Ascent as the best family SUV available.

So what makes the 2019 Subaru Ascent better than other 3-row SUVs like the Honda Pilot or Toyota Highlander? All three SUVs have seating for either seven or eight passengers but the Subaru Ascent offers more spacious seating and more flexible cargo space. The Highlander only has 144.9 cubic feet of passenger space and 83.7 cubic feet of maximum cargo space. While the Honda Pilot only offers 152.9 cubic feet of passenger space and a maximum cargo space of 82.1 cubic feet. The 2019 Ascent has an impressive 153.3 cubic feet of comfortable passenger space and versatile 86.5 cubic feet of maximum space.

Safety features are another area where the 2019 Ascent outshines the competition. The Toyota Highlander is popular for Toyota Safety Sense standard. But the Highlander isn't the only SUV with standard advanced safety. The Ascent comes equipped with EyeSight Driver Assist Technology standard on every model. The Honda Pilot is still only available with Honda Sensing on select trim levels or as part of an addition package.
