Wilsonville Subaru presents a comparison of the Subaru Ascent and Toyota Highlander on fuel efficiency and price.

Fuel Efficiency

Highlander’s base model produces 185 hp, which is less than that of the Ascent’s Direct-Injection Turbocharged (DIT) Boxer engine that can deliver 260 hp and a 21/27/24 (city/highway/combined) MPG, compared with its competition’s 19/26/22 MPG.


Although both Ascent and Highlander have almost the same starting MSRPs -- Highlander at $31,230 and the Ascent at $31,995 -- there’s a difference when it comes to having All-Wheel Drive. Even with Ascent’s $700 higher price on its base model, it comes with a standard AWD, compared with an approximate $4,555 price increase for an AWD Highlander.
