Inexpensive doesn't mean Cheap

When comparing vehicles for value, it’s easy to get lost in all the hype surrounding price. Yes, Subaru manufactures lower priced vehicles than some other brands, but that doesn’t mean Subarus are cheaply made or low quality.

We're comparing our 2023 Ascent Premier against the 2022 Ford Explorer Limited (as the 2023 model hasn't been released at time of publishing), the 2023 Volkswagen Atlas Highline, the 2023 Buick Enclave Essence, and the 2023 Acura MDX A-Spec. We've done our best to have matching features  in each of these vehicles, and you'll find that the family friendly 2023 Ascent Premier features some amazing technology and options that stand up extremely well to the other brand's offerings while being very competitive on pricing.

Ford, VW, and Acura selling prices do not include Dealer Administration and Documentation fees.
