Exterior Design 2022 Subaru Ascent vs 2022 Hyundai Palisade

With a ground clearance of 8.7 inches (along with double-wishbone rear suspension), the 2022 Subaru Ascent can handle less-than-smooth terrain so you can comfortably drive that less-traveled road to the cabin, lake, or mountaintop retreat without worrying. The 2022 Hyundai Palisade measures 7.9 inches off the ground.

Stylistically, the 2022 Subaru Ascent delivers a “modern adventurer” vibe, equipped with raised roof rails, 18- or 20-inch aluminum alloy wheel designs, all-season tires, LED steering responsive headlights, manual or power-folding side mirrors, panoramic power sunroof, power rear gate, and keyless access.

The refreshed 2022 Hyundai Palisade exterior emphasizes an upscale experience, with premium LED lighting, premium front and rear fascias, satin chrome details, 18- or 20-inch alloy wheels, power tilt-and-slide or dual sunroof, and keyless entry.
