Crossovers are getting bigger and bigger to accommodate the needs of the average family. We brought out a trio of new spacious, feature filled and impressive three-row crossovers to see how they compare to one another.

The three vehicles are the Volkswagen Atlas, the Honda Pilot, and the Subaru Ascent. Each is fully loaded with all-wheel drive and costs under $50,000. The three of these have their own unique qualities but only one will be crowned the best of the three. Let's dive into it.

      We bought a '19 Atlas. It's clearly a loss-leader product for VW - we got ours for about 10k less than the Pilot or Ascent. so MSRP isn't a factor for that car. Also i hear everyone talking about how much plastic there is - i have kids - plastic is easy to wipe down. regarding storage - we didn't have a minivan before, so the Atlas feels like an upgrade, storage wise for our kids. Also cubbies are a place for kids to leave behind things like food and garbage. I don't need to spend 1 hour a week cleaning out the car.

      Thinking about buying Acura MDX? Think again.🔮🦌🦌🦌 How come, Acura. Three weeks passed and no answers. 🦌🦌🦌🔮A car under warranty 25 000 miles was towed way to the dealership. Three weeks have passed and they are still looking into the issue". It's like looking for a niddle in a haystack" they said. "Something with electronics " Meanwhile No loaner is provided by Acura!!! The only offer from them was to tow the car to a different dealership at Your expense. Be aware. Acura MDX will broke , Acura road assistance will come 15 hours later and tow it away. You'll not hear from them for three weeks. They will not give you a loaner or pay for your rental car because " what if it's not a warranty case". Acura client relationships says " we understand your frustration. They are still looking into the problem with your car". Stay away!🤑🤑🤑

      I wish my Mom should have got the Subaru Ascent which is that I like, but she right now has the 2O18 Forester XT which is that I’m kinda uncomfortable with a little bit and she is not used to wider family SUVs anymore. She is not either used to Sporty and Boxy cars. And she used to have a 2OO5 Nissan Quest. She needed a luxury car so that she can park it properly. I’m more into wider and Boxier cars like the Grand Cherokee, Durango, Charger, and the Wrangler Rubicon. I’m also into trucks like the Rebel and Raptor.

      The Honda Pilot felt unresponsive and slow? I believe it’s faster than the Subaru in the quarter mile by a second. Are you confusing a jerky cvt transmission with power and acceleration? If you’re going to review cars try promoting accurate information or else it seems like have an agenda. Why else would you call the pilot slow and unresponsive when it’s actually quite faster than the Subaru? 🙄

      Love the ascent however will not buy one due to it having a 4 cylinder engine. It weighs around 4400 pounds. It has a turbo but that acts to beat that little engine up bad. You need a 6 cylinder. No manufacturer is using 4 cylinders in a 8 seater. They are all 6 cylinders up to 8 as in the Toyota Sequoia. You need a 6 with 300 plus hp. This is a very large heavy vehicle a 2.4. 4 cylinder is inadequate. I would buy one except the engine is a fatal flaw. I would rather have an aspirated 6

      Atlas is the most practical by far. The third row is actually usable and comfortable, which is more than you can say for just about any other mid-size SUV (before you get to the Expeditions and Tahoes). The interior is plain but comfortable. It isn't filled with unnecessary nonsense, it's minimal, simple, and intuitive, and it won't go out of style in 3 years.

      None of the reviewed SUVs have a cheap interior. If you want to see a cheap interior, look at a Chevy Bolt or base model Kia Rio interior. If luxury is what you want, spend your $45k on a mid-size luxury SUV like the Q5 or X3.

      I was ready to suggest Sebastian as the poster child for birth control until he picked the Subaru. Wise young man you've got yourself there! As a member in good standing of the Cult Of Subaru of course I think the Ascent is the clear choice of the three. But I've also seen enough of these comparison videos to know there's no such thing as a "best" vehicle. They're all good vehicles and the decision lies with personal choice for what you like and what you need. I have a home in the mountains with a 16% grade 1.5 mile long driveway and for me the Subaru is the best mix of road comfort, climbing ability, and dependability. Any of these would make it up (and down) the mountain but after careful nerdy research I believe the Subaru is the best choice for several reasons while respecting anyone who reaches a different conclusion for themselves. Let's face it, most SUV's never face anything more challenging than a speed bump in the Chuck-E-Cheese parking lot or parking in the grass at the kid's soccer field on Saturday morning. So as Rodney King said, "Cccccaaannnnttt we all... ccaannnt we all just get along?

      I definitely could’ve done without the “Sebastian” thing. I’m not sure what that added to the review. I’m not sure if the two of you do all of the AutoGuide.com videos as I just found this video. If I were to give the review a rating, with Sebastian, I will give it a one. Without Sebastian, no more than a five. Not overly helpful, but I appreciate your attempt sincerely!
