Torn Between the Subaru Ascent and the Subaru Outback?

600 × 543?

If you're in the market for a family vehicle near Norwich that is perfect for all-weather adventures, you may find yourself torn between the Subaru Ascent and Subaru Outback. Both will check off a lot of your boxes when it comes to utility, tech, and safety features, but which one you pick may ultimately depend on how much space you need and which amenities you require.

Ascent vs. Outback: Which One's Which?

Both the Ascent and the Outback are classified as midsize crossover SUVs. The Ascent runs on the larger side while the Outback is more wagon-like in its design.

Both SUVs offer the following features:

  • Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive
  • X-MODE and 8.7 inches of ground clearance
  • Exceptional car-like visibility
  • Excellent safety features
  • Horizontally-opposed SUBARU BOXER engines
  • Continuously Variable Automatic Transmission
  • And more!

How Much Room Do You Need?

The most noticeable difference between the two crossovers, perhaps, is their size.

The Ascent is longer, wider, and taller than the Outback. As such, it boasts more interior space, offering room for up to eight passengers against the Outback's five. The Ascent supplies a few unique features such as a third row and a whopping nineteen cup holders. While the Ascent offers more space, you may find the smaller Outback easier to maneuver around town in Oneonta and Utica.

If you often find yourself struggling to accommodate the daily seating and cargo space needs of your family, the Ascent may be the perfect choice as it is available in seven-passenger or eight-passenger configurations. If seating is less of an issue, the Outback provides plenty of room for weekend outings around Cortland.
