Compare 2019 Subaru Ascent vs 2019 Ford Flex Performance Advantages

2019 Subaru Ascent vs 2019 Ford Flex: Performance

The Subaru Ascent shows that a perfect balance of power and efficiency can be achieved. Its SUBARU BOXER® engine generates 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque, while also giving you up to 27 miles per gallon on the highway and 21 miles per gallon in the city. The V6 that comes standard in the Ford Flex puts out more horsepower, but less torque. What's more, the entry-level Ford Flex only gets up to 23 highway MPG and 16 city MPG--and that's with front-wheel drive!

While we're on the subject, the Ford Flex is like many other SUVs: front-wheel drive is standard, and you can pay more to upgrade to all-wheel drive. Not so with Subaru. The 2019 Subaru Ascent comes standard with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive on every trim level, so you can enjoy exploring the Mother Lode.

Of course, that Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive does more than just make adventure easier (though it certainly does do that). Whether the weather is bad or you're exploring off-road trails, this powerful AWD system increases traction to keep you safer. You'll also get help from standard X-MODE® and Hill Descent Control. If you want the safety of an AWD system in the new Ford Flex, you'll have to fork over more money.
