2018 Subaru Ascent VS Volkswagen Atlas: Tougher One Wins

By  | 

The Volkswagen Atlas has a lot to offer but what the Subaru Ascent has to offer is something completely different.

The Volkswagen Atlas will be coming in with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that will be mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and will be offering about 276hp. The Atlas will need 7.9 seconds to go from 0-60mph. It will also return about 18mpg in the city and 25mpg on the highway.

As nice as that is, Subaru has a completely different strategy on how to take down the Atlas and that is to fit their Ascent with more off-road tech and features. The 7 seater will come riding on the Dodge Durango platform and is capable of taking on tougher roads compared to the Atlas.

The Subaru Ascent base model will retail for $31,995 while the top of the range Touring model will be offered for $44,695. Do you think it is enough?
