Oh, and if you're getting a limited, it's over $40,000.

But ... MSRP on a new Highlander or Pilot with comparable equipment is over $48,000, an MDX is over $57,000, an RX350L is $57,000, and a new Q7 is $62,000 to $75,000. So ... a Limited Ascent that's an OP23 is $43,000, without the roof and nav is $40,000. Think we won't be sold out of our cars for quite a while before supply meets demand?

LOL, I would never say cupholders are the _most_ important feature, but they sure are nice.

If you look at the touring trim packages of the Outback and the Ascent it is about a $4K difference.

Right now I am sitting on the fence between a '19 Outback or a '19 Ascent. I am really liking the idea of the 2.4 turbo in the Ascent for the fuel economy and torque numbers. Most assuredly the turbo 2.4 will end up in the next gen Outback in '20 but I cannot wait for another year before buying a new car.

I do not need three rows of seating, nor do I want the additional +1000 pounds of weight that the Ascent brings along.. Also; 19 cupholders? Someone must of been really desperate to think that should be a leading sales point.

No matter how hard I work to get excited about the Ascent I still find myself drawn back to the Outback. I owned an older model many years ago and it was a good car.

There will be times that I take it off of paved roads as I like to car-camp in out of the way places. The Outback is nice in that it has just enough room to make it tolerable if I do not want to pitch a tent.

I do not want an Ascent if it is nothing more than a soccer-mom SUV with a Subaru badge. We have not seen anything coming out of Subaru USA that gives us some comparisons to the capabilities against the Outback.

Sure, the Ascent will have a certain sales demographic where Subaru will be wanting to draw away customers from other manufacturers. I believe that its most loyal following will be from people who have already owned the Subaru brand but just want a bit more room. Right now they are not making that compelling case.
