 What's New for the 2019 Subaru Ascent?

Originally introduced as a concept car on April 2017 at the New York International Auto Show, the Ascent was eventually made for public consumption for the 2019 model year as Subaru’s first three-row vehicle—and the automaker’s most significant automobile yet. The inaugural Ascent model is split into four trims: the base-level model, Premium, Limited, and Touring. Powering this brand-new mid-size crossover SUV is a brand-new 2.4-liter turbocharged Subaru Boxer® engine that pumps out 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque and is paired with a continuously variable transmission with paddle shifters. Just like other Subaru vehicles, the Ascent comes with a standard all-wheel drivetrain, which is accompanied by X-MODE® technology for further strengthening its capability to maintain peak traction on less-than-ideal driving surfaces. Maximum towing capability—at least with the Premium, Limited, and Touring—is measured at 5,000 lbs., which makes the Ascent the greatest hauler in Subaru’s history.

As a three-row vehicle and with 153.5 cubic feet of passenger volume, the Ascent can accommodate up to eight people. However, on the Premium, you can opt for a pair of captain’s chairs instead of a bench-style seat in the second row to keep peak occupancy at seven, and those chairs are standard on the top-level Touring trim. Standard cargo space on the SUV is measured at 19.6 cubic feet. The Ascent's standard comfort and convenience features include tri-zone automatic temperature control, six-speaker audio, four USB ports, a 6.5-inch display screen, Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ for smartphone integration, SiriusXM® satellite radio service, and the Starlink™ multimedia system. The Premium gets an additional 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and the 6.5-inch screen is supplanted by an 8-inch one.

If you go with the Limited, the Ascent will have keyless access, push-button engine ignition, an automatic-dimming rearview mirror, a garage-door opener, dual USB ports in the third row, and leather upholstery. Exclusive to the Touring are additions and enhancements such as a panoramic power moonroof, front-seat heating and ventilating ability, Java Brown leather upholstery, 8-inch touchscreen navigation, and a 14-speaker 792-watt Harman Kardon® premium audio system. Restraint and cushioning are provided by dual front impact airbags, front seat-mounted side-impact airbags, and side curtains for all three rows. Also standard on the Ascent are electronic stability control, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist and override, traction control, daytime running lights, active torque vectoring, and hill descent control. For the first time in Subaru’s history, one of its vehicles has EyeSight® driver assistance technology—which combines components such as adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist and sway warning, and pre-collision braking and throttle management—as a standard feature.

The Premium trim gets enhanced with blind-spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert and the Subaru Starlink™ Safety and Security package (which includes automatic collision notification, security alarm notifications, SOS emergency assistance, remote lock/unlock, roadside assistance, and stolen vehicle locator). The Limited or Touring get additional LED steering responsive headlights and reverse automatic braking.
