The Subaru Ascent: An SUV Filled with Creature Comforts

The new Subaru Ascent is the biggest of Subaru’s line up with the ability to take in up to eight passengers. This is the vehicle that has the capacity of a van but looks and moves more like an SUV. That’s what the new Subaru Ascent is all about.


The Subaru Ascent currently has four trims: Standard Ascent, Premium, Limited, and Touring. The second-row seats for both the Premium and the Limited can either be second-row benches or Captain’s Chairs, which are two seats separated by a path to the third row. That means the kids will easily be able to get to the third-row with chairs like that in the second. High-quality fabric seating is standard for the regular Ascent with all leather seating for the top tier Ascents.

As this is a family vehicle, the new Subaru Ascent has the amenities that make trips of all kinds enjoyable. This vehicle has built-in wi-fi connectivity and USB charging. It’s got Subaru STARLINK Entertainment. It’s got a panoramic moonroof allowing the natural light in for everyone in the SUV. Its raised roof gives you more headroom and power rear gate for easy loading and unloading.

And as its the identity of an SUV, it’s got 8.7 inches of ground clearance and an X-mode that makes the most of the Ascent’s Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system driving through ice or off-road. It’s also the system the gives you that Hill Descent Control for vehicle stability when descending down steep hills in Orange County, VA.
