It's my reason to buy Ascent not CX-9. :tango_face_wink:The interior cargo room of the CX-9 is a little smaller than that of the Outback, even though the Outback is a 5 seater. Though the CX-9 is a tiny bit longer than the Ascent on the exterior, the Ascent is vastly larger inside (due to the much smaller hood allowing for much more interior space).
Thanks, Jared. Your comments based on knowledge of both vehicles is exactly what I was looking for. The links you provided also show that Ascent has 2" more leg room in the rear seat.
Since you own both vehicles do you have any other comments about them? I'm really leaning towards the Ascent. My one concern is that it is brand new and no one knows how well the engine and the rest of the drive train will hold up.
