Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Palisade than in the Subaru Ascent. The Hyundai Palisade offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Subaru Ascent, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
The Subaru Ascent requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Hyundai Palisade, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Palisade will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Subaru Ascent.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Palisade is much wider than the Subaru Ascent, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Hyundai Palisade takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Subaru Ascent.

Handling
The Hyundai Palisade has the same turning radius as the Subaru Ascent, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Hyundai Palisade will do just as well as the Subaru Ascent, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Hyundai Palisade has a little more horsepower than the Subaru Ascent.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the Hyundai Palisade doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Subaru Ascent.

Utility
The Hyundai Palisade offers greater seating capacity than the Subaru Ascent, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Hyundai Palisade as you will in the Subaru Ascent.
