How Well Does The Ford Edge Compare To The Subaru Ascent

This is the first year that we have seen the 2019 Subaru Ascent and many drivers are wondering how well the competition stacks up. Which is why we have compared the Ford Edge to the new Subaru Ascent in all the ways that matter most. And the winner shouldn't surprise you.

When shopping for a new SUV many drivers want to get the most for their money and while the Ford Edge has a lower starting price the Ascent is better equipped. Here are just a few standard features every Ascent has to offer that will cost you extra on the Ford Edge. Every Ascent comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, X-Mode, Hill Descent Control, 6.5-inch touchscreen multimedia system with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, and Subaru EyeSight Driver Assist Technology. When it comes to advanced safety features on the Ford Edge you will have to select a more expensive trim level to get some of the same features as EyeSight. Which includes Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Keep Assist and Sway Warning, Pre-Collision Braking, and Pre-Collision Throttle Management.

Another way that the Subaru Ascent beats the Ford Edge is with more cargo room, seating for up to 8, and higher towing capabilities. The Ford Edge only has a maximum cargo space of 73.4 cubic feet, seating for five, and can only tow up to 2,000 lbs. The Ascent, however, can tow up to 5,000 lbs. and has a maximum cargo space of 86.5 cubic feet.

So what are you waiting for! Make your way down to Subaru of Corvallis to experience the 2019 Ascent from the best seat in the house. The driver's seat.
