The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.5
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2019 Toyota Highlander delivers safety, features, comfort, and efficiency in a family-friendly package. The 2019 Subaru Ascent isn’t another quirky hatchback-wagon-crossover thing—it’s a mainstream hit and Subaru will be better for it.
