Subaru ascent and Honda Pilot.



I currently have a Subaru legacy 2016 and have a Nuna pippa (infant), diono (borrowed and a year from expiration, also not a fan) forward facing five year old and a Clek fllo just turned three year old reverse. I also own a britax click tight advocate. Since I would like to have the possibility of being able to drive an extra passenger if needed and our lease is up I am looking for a new car. I really like Subaru and started looking into the ascent. Would that car be feasible or it would be two hard to get someone in the back seat or otherwise put three across. Also would need to be able to in the further do two reverse convertibles and a booster. Followed by a booster and one forward facing convertible and one in reverse. Any thoughts and if not what about the pilot. I really like all wheel drive.

I know this is old and you have probably already decided, but I thought I'd post a reply in case anyone else was interested. I vote Ascent over the Pilot. Darren has a great review here where he discusses those vehicles in the "Runner Up" section. The Ascent is safer. I have an Ascent and love it. If you have three kiddos and want to have the possibility of driving another passenger, I would go with the captains chairs in the second row so there is an aisle to get to the third row over the bench/three across. Much easier. Plus it is nice to be able to easily separate kiddos in case of fighting. The booster rider can go in the third row. That way they aren't having to dig between seats to get to the buckle.
