Three-row SUVs are popular with shoppers seeking family transportation, and the Ascent is Subaru’s entry in this growing segment. The Subaru Ascent delivers excellent cargo capacity, and it’s able to tow big loads. It also offers the driver-assist features modern car shoppers crave, and it provides three-row seating as standard equipment.
2019 to Present: Subaru Ascent
Subaru added the Ascent to its lineup in the 2019 model year. Base, Premium, Limited and Touring trim levels were introduced at launch. All Ascent crossovers come standard with all-wheel drive, and this gives them improved traction in rain and snow.
Past Subaru SUVs have had a low-slung, somewhat wagon-like appearance, but this isn’t the case with the Ascent. With its alert stance and organically rounded lines, this Subaru is in step with the design trends seen in today’s crop of crossovers. Muscular haunches and a tapered beltline help give the Ascent a look that’s taut and athletic.
The Ascent’s cabin is most notable for the spaciousness it provides. There’s seating for up to eight, or seven when equipped with the available second-row captain’s chairs. Even taller passengers will be happy in the first two rows, and this Subaru boasts one of the roomiest third rows in its segment. The Ascent also shines when it comes to cargo capacity, as it offers plenty of room for your belongings behind the first row.
Family vehicles are expected to deliver pleasant handling, and the Ascent doesn’t disappoint in this respect. Its ride quality is faultlessly smooth and compliant. Motivation comes from a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 260 horsepower. This powerplant is a good match for the Ascent, allowing it to easily tackle highway maneuvers.
Subaru’s Ascent also offers impressive towing capability.
Subaru included a generous list of standard features when it introduced the Ascent. These include roof rails, tri-zone automatic climate control and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration, as well as split-folding second- and third-row seats.
The Ascent was also introduced with an appealing range of standard driver-assist technology. The list includes forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and a lane-departure warning system.
When it comes to optional equipment, Ascent buyers have some appealing choices to consider. The range of available amenities includes heated front seats, a Wi-Fi hotspot and a navigation system.
The Ascent’s peer group includes three-row midsize crossovers like the Mazda CX-9, Buick Enclave and Toyota Highlander. All these picks have their strengths, but the Subaru Ascent is a strong pick if you’re looking for a family crossover that’s roomy, competent and loaded with standard equipment.
