    The new Subaru Ascent is a modern SUV, and it has the safety technologies and convenience features to prove that. We mentioned that every Subaru Ascent comes standard with Subaru EyeSight® Driver Assist technologies that provide confidence in all situations. Those driver-assist systems standard in the Subaru Ascent include:

    • Pre-collision Braking: The Subaru Ascent uses sensors in the front to monitor for other cars, obstacles, and pedestrians, and the Ascent will apply the brakes for you to lessen the impact of a crash.
    • Lane Keep Assist: Vehicles drifting from their lanes is a cause of many accents, and this system lets you know if you if you're crossing over lines. It will also apply brakes to help you get back to the center of the lane.
    • Adaptive Cruise Control: If you're often dealing with congested highways, adaptive cruise control lets you set the distance you want to be from the car in front of you. This way, you can keep your foot off the gas and enjoy an easier time on your commute.
    • High Beam Assist: Having your brights on when driving can blind cars in the oncoming lane, and it's easy to forget to turn those off. Well, the Subaru Ascent picks up on lights coming at you and turns your brights off for you and then back on once the car passes.

    Along with these safety features, the new Subaru Ascent has a wonderful selection of other helpful technologies. There's the standard multimedia system, which includes connectivity for Apple and Android devices, a power rear liftgate for an easier time loading up, and even a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. With these features, along with items like reclining rear seats, a panoramic sunroof, and a 14-speaker sound system, you and your passengers will enjoy every second that you spend in the new Subaru Ascent!

    How the New Subaru Ascent Stacks Up Against the Honda Pilot

    When searching for new three-row SUVs for sale in Bremerton, you'll surely come across the Honda Pilot along with the Subaru Ascent. While both are similar in many ways, you'll also find that the Subaru Ascent offers a more refined driving experience, improved technology, and more engaging driving dynamics that will help improve your time spent behind the wheel. Peninsula Subaru is here to help Silverdale and Bainbridge Island drivers find the right three-row SUV for your Kitsap Peninsula travels.

    Technology

    The technology you'll find inside the Subaru Ascent gives you a much more polished experience than what you'll find in the latest Honda Pilot. For starters, the new Starlink interface features high-definition icons and improved map rendering, offering more detail and a crisp picture that feels truly up to date. Meanwhile, the Honda Pilot feels outdated and clunky, with several menus to navigate through versus the simplified interface in the Subaru. Plus, the presence of physical buttons and knobs on the Subaru system means that you can quickly access your favorite radio stations and switch audio inputs on the fly, while the Honda makes you use the touchscreen for these functions.

    Interior Refinement

    You spend a great deal of time inside your vehicle, so it is important to have something that makes you feel right at home. The new Honda Pilot is well made enough, but the design is lacking and the rubberized surfaces and hard plastics leave the cabin feeling a bit cheap and basic. However, the Subaru Ascent focuses on premium finishings to give you the high-class look and feel you want, and it comes at a price that is less than you'll pay for the Honda model. You can choose from several wood grain textures to adorn the dash and doors, while premium leather options are available to give you superior comfort in a variety of colors. The ambient interior lighting package helps add a touch of class to your nighttime drives as well, and overall you'll find yourself appreciating the details of the Subaru Ascent cabin versus the basic nature of the Honda Pilot interior.

    Capability

    While on paper the Honda Pilot makes more power from it's V6 engine than you get in the Subaru Ascent's four-cylinder turbo, that turbocharger makes a big difference in how it feels as you drive. The acceleration is punchy, giving you that back-in-your-seat feeling when you put your foot down. Plus, you'll enjoy improved fuel mileage over the Honda Pilot, especially when driving in the city.

    Once you take the Subaru Ascent off-road, it will truly begin to shine against the Honda Pilot. While the Honda is capable of some light off-road excursions, the elevated ride height and Symmetrical all-wheel drive of the Subaru Ascent will allow you to traverse more rugged terrain with confidence. Plus, the selectable drive modes let you tailor your Subaru Ascent powertrain to suit the conditions, making your time spent off roading easier than ever.

    Safety

    The safety of both the new Subaru Ascent and Honda Pilot are fairly matched, with both models featuring forward collision alert, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, and lane keep assist as part of their basic safety tech packages. You can also add blind spot monitoring and rear cross traffic alert to both models, and adaptive cruise control works in stop and go traffic as well.

    Handling

    Here the Honda Pilot and Subaru Ascent are fairly even as well, and both outperform the competition when it comes to handling and confidence on the road. You won't find excessive body roll with either model, although there is more feedback through the steering wheel with the Subaru Ascent versus the more disconnected Honda Pilot steering system.
