1440 × 810
The midsize three-row SUV has created quite the fan base - and with good reason. You can get plenty of comfortable passenger space without losing the efficiency you do in some full-size options. Plus, there’s still versatile passenger and cargo space. A popular segment means a lot of competition, however. Which SUV is the best SUV? We’re comparing the 2020 Toyota Highlander with the 2020 Subaru Ascent at Heritage Toyota Owings Mills serving Baltimore, MD to show you just how well our Toyota crossover SUV stacks up.

The 2020 Toyota Highlander is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine. It churns out up to 295 horsepower and 263 lb-ft of torque. With that performance, the SUV can tow up to 5,000 lb, perfect for those weekend getaways. The 2020 Subaru Ascent, however, falls short. It’s equipped with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that produces just 260 horsepower. Furthermore, that only equates to a standard towing capacity of 2,000 lb.

You still find the efficiency you need in the Toyota SUV near Baltimore, MD, even though it boasts more performance. The Toyota Highlander earns a 29 mpg highway rating as a maximum. The Subaru Ascent doesn’t quite measure up, with just 27 mpg on the highway. Of course, efficiency amplifies in the all-new 2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid, which boasts best-in-class fuel efficiency, with an estimated 34 mpg combined rating. (The 2020 Toyota Highlander Hybrid is expected to hit showroom floors in February.) By comparison, the Subaru Ascent does not offer a hybrid version.
