Comparing the

to Popular Competition

The 2020 Subaru Ascent v. 2020 VW Atlas

When it comes to well-rounded design and versatility on full display, you will cherish what the 2020 Subaru Ascent can offer over the 2020 Volkswagen Atlas. And while both vehicles have their place in the three-row crossover segment, our team at Delaney Subaru prefers the advantages in active safety, advanced technology, convenience amenities and all-wheel drive performance that this new Subaru model is best known for and distinguished by.

Performance: Comparing four-cylinder powertrains under the hood, the 2020 Subaru Ascent proves more productive. The horizontally-opposed SUBARU BOXER engine generates 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet respectively to 235 horsepower and 258 pound-feet for the Atlas. Both vehicles feature eight-speed automatic transmissions and can tow up to 5,000 pounds, but the Ascent boasts higher standard highway fuel economy estimates at 27 miles per gallon for an efficient daily commuting outlook. Standard symmetrical all-wheel drive gives this new Subaru model season-to-season consistency, while 4MOTION all-wheel drive is just available for the Volkswagen model.

Technology: Technology highlights favor the new Subaru model, as standard HD radio and satellite radio aren't available with the base Atlas trim.

Equipped with Subaru EyeSight technology - featuring standard lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist, features you won't find in the starting Atlas - peace of mind expectations also nod in the direction of the 2020 Subaru Ascent.

Convenience: While both SUVs sport three rows inside, the 2020 Subaru Ascent comes with seven and eight-seat configurations to just the Atlas' seven.

Optional convenience amenities not offered with the Atlas include remote engine start, an interior cargo shade and fog lamps. Standard adaptive cruise control is also not available for the Volkswagen vehicle under consideration.

The All New 2020 Subaru Ascent is a no-brainer!
