When shopping for a spacious vehicle that can accommodate more than five passengers while still being versatile, the 2020 Subaru Ascent and the 2020 Honda Pilot in Covington LA are worth looking at. Both the Ascent and the Pilot are large SUVs that offer several trim levels and accommodates up to eight passengers. 

 


Four trim levels are available in the 2020 Subaru Ascent; the Ascent, Ascent Premium, Ascent Limited, and Ascent Touring. Starting price to own a 2020 Subaru Ascent is $34,395, with continued savings at the pump, as you get an estimated 21 miles per gallon in the city and 27 miles per gallon on the highway*. This vehicle is not too shabby for a small SUV, delivering impressive torque. High torque combined with a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds enables you to haul a boat or camper up and downhill with ease. Subaru kicks it up a notch with standard symmetrical all-wheel drive and a Lineartronic Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) with Adaptive Cruise Control, Auto Vehicle Hold, and 8-speed manual mode with paddle shifters. We can't forget about Subaru's 8.7-inches ground clearance either!

The 2020 Subaru Ascent is exploding with standard safety features and technological amenities which are only optional add-ons from competitors. The 2020 Ascent comes standard with rear seat reminder alert, EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Vehicle Dynamics Control, Brake Assist, and Brake Override System. Subaru STARLINK 8-inch Multimedia Plus includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, navigation, and voice commands (controls navigation, entertainment, phone calls, and climate control) as standard features in all trim levels.

A secure and comfortable driving experience can be expected in the 2020 Subaru Ascent, even over rough roads. You will be ready to conquer any terrain with its receptive steering and responsive acceleration and deceleration. On closed course driving the 2020 Ascent delivered a more controlled and consistent ride than the 2020 Honda Pilot. When driving a closed course at high speeds the 2020 Ascent remained stable even on sharp curves with no feeling of tipping. It met the challenges and demands of a closed course, far outlasting the 2020 Honda Pilot on the same course.

Six trim levels are offered in the 2020 Honda Pilot in Covington LA; LX, EX, EX-L, Touring, Elite, and Black Edition. Starting price to purchase a 2020 Honda Pilot is $34,430. The Honda Pilot is not too far behind the Ascent in fuel efficiency; however, it can't compete with only 7.3-inches of ground clearance. The Pilot comes standard with a six-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, making it less capable than the Ascent's AWD CVT. 

The 2020 Honda Pilot offers a casual exterior design, roomy cargo space, and clever storage solutions. Honda offers several standard safety features like Road Departure Mitigation, Lane Keeping Assist, Collision Mitigation Braking System, back up camera, and Adaptive Cruise Control. The 2020 Pilot comes standard with similar modern technology features; however, it lacks in number of standard features compared to the Ascent. When challenged on a closed course, the 2020 Pilot lacked stability on turns (giving a tipping feeling). The steering was not as reactive as the drivers hoped, and sluggish acceleration and delayed braking response kept it far behind the Ascent. The Pilot was unable to meet expectations of the closed course and felt worn out during driving experiences.

Come by Baldwin Subaru and see how the 2020 Subaru Ascent outshines the 2020 Honda Pilot in Covington LA in size, features and amenities. The 2020 Subaru Ascent is the perfect vehicle for an active, growing family, providing nine different seating arrangements ready for adventure.
