Compare the 2020 Subaru Ascent to the 2020 Toyota Highlander

If you're looking for a new family vehicle, you're likely searching for key factors like space, utility, safety, and tech. These are all areas in which the new 2020 Subaru Ascent excels, and it puts the pressure on rivals like the 2020 Toyota Highlander while it's at it. With features like superior interior space, standard AWD, and an advanced dual-camera driver-assist system, the Ascent soars over the competition and outshines the Highlander

Why Choose the 2020 Subaru Ascent?

The Subaru lineup boasts a wide array of awards and accolades for safety, resale value, low ownership cost, quality, and more. With awards like 2019 IIHS Top Safety Pick+, 2019 Kelley Blue Book Brand Image Awards, 2019 Kelley Blue Book 5-Year Cost to Own Awards, and more, Subaru models like the Ascent make a strong impression.


The Subaru Ascent comes with a powerful standard engine under the hood. The Ascent's turbocharged SUBARU BOXER engine yields up to 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque, which is plenty of the power you need for your daily adventures. The Ascent also comes standard with all-wheel drive, but you'll have to upgrade to equip the Highlander with AWD.

Safety Features

All Subaru Ascent models come standard with the dual-camera Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology system, which is a suite of safety features that includes, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist and sway warning, pre-collision braking, and pre-collision throttle management. The Highlander comes with its own set of similar safety features, but it lacks pre-collision throttle management, which detects obstacles that you're likely to hit and reduces engine power to help minimize impact and damage.


Both the 2020 Ascent and 2020 Highlander come standard with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, but only the Ascent features STARLINK Multimedia. This user-friendly system allows easy access to apps like SiriusXM All Access Radio, Yelp and Magellan, Access new, music, and more. SUBARU STARLINK Safety and Security also offers a variety of other helpful features like Advanced Automatic Collision Notification and SOS Emergency Assistance.
