The Car Connection's Take

TCC Rating

6.0
6.8

TCC’s Bottom Line

The 2019 GMC Acadia doesn’t stand out but is a solid choice for those who only need a third row occasionally. The 2019 Subaru Ascent isn’t another quirky hatchback-wagon-crossover thing—it’s a mainstream hit and Subaru will be better for it.
