Large-sized family vehicles do very well in the Montreal and Laval area, and everywhere in the country. That is the reason why the 2020 Subaru Ascent has met with such success, even if it has to measure against similar vehicles such as the 2020 Kia Sorento.
With more room, more advanced technology, a standard all-wheel drive and a more cost-efficient engine, the Subaru Ascent represents a better value for money than the Kia Sorento for families of the West Island or Downtown.
Let’s compare both vehicles.
People buy these vehicles for their spaciousness. The 2020 Subaru Ascent offers the same volume for the passengers as the 2020 Sorento but provides more cargo space. It even includes standard roof rails, a feature that is only optional on its rival.
Another detail, it’s eight passengers that can comfortably take place aboard the interior of the Subaru Ascent, while the Kia Sorento can accommodate sept passengers, and that only in its largest configuration.
In terms of performances, Subaru is inescapable. The powerful Symmetrical Full-Time All-Wheel Drive system, offered standard, is a favourite among drivers in Laval and Montreal who have to deal with snowy roads. An all-wheel drive is also available standard on the Kia Sorento.
The 2020 Subaru Ascent and 2020 Kia Sorento are both equipped with four-cylinder engines, but the horizontally-opposed BOXER of the Subaru offers a higher starting output with its 260 horsepower. You will have to opt of a 6-cylinder engine, more fuel-thirsty, to get a little more power from the 2020 Sorento.
On the chapter of safety, the 2020 Subaru Ascent also stands out with the EyeSight system, offered standard. This suite of active driver assist technologies contains the Pre-Collision Braking, Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist systems. The Kia Sorento also offers its own driver assistance technology, but that requires an additional investment since it is only available on the higher-range versions.
You can discover all the advantages of the 2020 Ascent by enjoying a test drive of this large Subaru SUV at your Subaru Montréal dealer.
