It’s been decades back acceptable full-size abject wagons abolished from the burghal mural en masse, but their spirit lives on in three-row crossovers such as the 2019 Subaru Ascent and the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas. Graced with the artifice of asperous adequacy and chargeless of the minivan stigma that still lingers in a ample swath of buyers, crossovers accept become the de facto best of the masses who accept masses of bodies and actuality to transport.

Despite some automated differences, abutting analysis reveals that the Volkswagen Atlas and Subaru Ascent accept similarities above three rows of seats. Both are accumulated in the U.S. yet activity all-embracing pedigrees. The Atlas’s engines—including our analysis example’s alternative 3.6-liter narrow-angle V-6—hail from Germany, its eight-speed automated chiral comes from Japan, and it is all accumulated in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The Ascent’s turbocharged 2.4-liter flat-four boxer agent and continuously capricious automated chiral (CVT) appear from Japan, and the Subie is congenital in Lafayette, Indiana.

Both appear in a cardinal of trim levels, with the prices for their abject trim levels landing aural $1100 of anniversary other. The amateur Atlas S with a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four and front-wheel drive stickers for $31,890 against the abject Subaru Ascent’s $32,970 access point. The catch, however, is that the Ascent comes with accepted all-wheel drive, admitting VW requires selecting the V6 S trim to alleviate that feature, which bumps the MSRP to $35,090.

Both activated models are able in their top trim levels with all-wheel drive. That agency an as-tested $49,390 for the 2019 Volkswagen Atlas SEL Premium with 4Motion AWD, which is able with basically every advantage on the sheet, including a across-the-board sunroof and a tow hitch. The 2019 Subaru Ascent Touring’s $45,670 amount includes a across-the-board sunroof afterwards an upcharge but adds $499 for the bivouac hitch. (Both are rated to tug up to 5000 pounds.) To that we additionally added adjustable crossbars for the roof arbor ($201), all-weather attic liners ($132), and an auto-dimming rear mirror ($241) for a absolute of $46,743. With $2647 continuing amid them, we affective our notebooks and hit the road.

We’ve continued been admirers of Volkswagen’s artlessly aspirated narrow-angle V-6, which in this appliance is rated for 276 application and 266 lb-ft of torque—enough balance to actuate the 4759-pound Atlas to 60 mph in 8.0 abnormal flat. While that clip is able for a ancestors vehicle, the Ascent takes the drag-race honors; the 260 horses and 277 lb-ft produced by its turbocharged 2.4-liter flat-four actuate its 4656 pounds to 60 mph in aloof 6.5 seconds. Subaru’s CVT transmissions accept been subjected to endless updates and refinements over the years, and while we still ambition Subaru offered a accepted automated in the Ascent, this is one of the best CVTs we’ve experienced. It does able-bodied to accumulate the agent in the blubbery of its torque curve, and the apish “gears” are welcome, if synthetic. The Atlas uses an eight-speed automated that is agreeable to about-face aboriginal and often, sometimes as low as 1500 rpm. We get that it’s a fuel-saving strategy, but its assiduity accumulated with some acerbity can be annoying in alternate active for those who pay absorption to such details. The solution, of course, is to baddest Activity mode, which helps somewhat by absolution the agent rev a bit added afore addled it in; or artlessly baddest the chiral approach and about-face for yourself with the console-mounted shifter. Steering-wheel paddle shifters are not available.

In ammunition economy, the Subaru array a win with EPA estimates of 20 mpg city, 26 highway, and 22 accumulated against the Volkswagen’s 17-, 23-, and 19-mpg figures. On our 75-mph artery fuel-economy analysis loop, a commensurable Ascent Bound managed a 26-mpg return, while a agnate Atlas V6 got 24 mpg.

Although neither agent displays a decidedly acrid ride, alarming administration properties, or obnoxiously blatant interiors, the aberration amid their personalities is profound. The Ascent places autogenous abundance first, with its abeyance assimilation up the burst pavement and potholes with grace, abrogation the occupants abundantly unaffected. The Atlas hits harder and with added aural resonance over the aforementioned amplitude of road, consistent in agent anatomy amplitude and some abstinent commuter arch toss. The tables are angry back the alley changes for the better, however, area the Ascent’s impossibly ablaze and quick askance council requires accepted corrections, and it feels added agitable at acceleration and back cornering, which makes it beneath adorable for active driving. The Atlas, on the added hand, responds able-bodied to actuality tossed into corners and reacts progressively, alarming aplomb in the driver. The VW additionally takes the braking ceremoniousness with a close and easy-to-modulate pedal that helps accompany it to a stop from 70 mph in 165 feet; the Subaru is not far abaft at 169 feet, but with a softer, added ambiguous activity to its pedal. Shoppers account active dynamics as abundant as acumen abide best served by Mazda’s CX-9, our accepted 10Best champ in the mid-size-SUV category.

While both the Subaru and VW strive to accommodate beautiful three-row comfort, they go about it in actual altered ways. The Ascent is a styled affluence of colors and substrates, from the buttery amber covering seats to the chrome accents on the birr to the three or four added hues and abstracts activated throughout the cabin. The Atlas, in comparison, is an exercise in architecture restraint, featuring a balmy and abstaining mix of commutual colors. Both affection adequate and all-around advanced seats, but the Atlas’s are wider—hello, average America!—and larboard us activity fresher afterwards continued stints at the wheel.

The VW additionally takes the advance in second- and third-row seating. Although both average rows accelerate advanced and aft, the Subaru’s second-row buckets accept a lower bank acme that fabricated them beneath adequate than the configurable second-row bank in the Atlas. Spacious abundant for adults to sit three beside or two by two with a babyish bank between, the Atlas with its hardly beyond exoteric dimensions, able packaging, and beefy contour provided greater arch and accept space; the Ascent appropriate occupants taller than six anxiety to angle their active back built-in in the rear. Third-row ceremoniousness additionally go to the Atlas, acknowledgment to the awfully added rear-door openings, which accomplish for easier admission and egress. And already seated, there’s abundant allowance for 18-carat full-size adults to fit with basal complaint.

Not surprisingly, then, the Atlas additionally wins appealing abundant any cargo-volume comparison. It has a about beyond center-console bin, aperture pockets, and glovebox and added accommodation accumulator in both the added and third rows, too. However, due to the appearance of the amplitude abaft the third rows, the Ascent denticulate a abruptness win by burning bristles carry-on-size accoutrements against four for the Atlas. But, with added and third rows folded, the Atlas managed 38 absolute accoutrements to the Ascent’s 33.

Although the Atlas and Ascent allotment a accepted mission, they go about accomplishing it in audibly altered ways. Admitting the Ascent is about an XXL Subaru Outback wagon, the Atlas channels the spirit of a full-size SUV. Subaru has a clue almanac of designing new models to address to its absolute chump abject first, and the Ascent altogether fills the abandoned for Subie admirers attractive to move up from an Outback or Forester, while additionally alluring a few new associates to the club. The Atlas will no agnosticism accomplish the aforementioned action for Volkswagen, but it can’t adumbrate its aspirations to comedy in the above leagues and go afterwards accustomed players like the Ford Explorer and Chevrolet Traverse. If acceptable SUV attributes like autogenous amplitude and functionality are aerial on your list, the Volkswagen Atlas is a stronger choice.
