While their first try at a three-row SUV may have flopped, Subaru has learned from their mistakes and has released an improved version: the 2019 Ascent. Growing families looking for adventure and spaciousness have found their next ticket to comfort and speed with this unique model. Available in four trim levels, shoppers will have no problem finding just the right combinations to suit their busy lives. With plenty of seat configurations and compartments for superior storage, this is one of the more intriguing models of its class on the market today.
Don't raise your eyebrows at the 2.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine: it can tow up to 5,000 pounds and reach up to 260 horsepower. All trims come equipped with all-wheel drive and Subaru's specialized X-mode to enhance traction on low friction surfaces, while also reducing individual wheel spin. To give this model a more athletic look, shoppers can opt for 18-inch and 20-inch wheels, chrome door handles, and a power tilt/sliding panoramic glass moonroof. Each trim comes standard with raised
roof rails, a rear window wiper, and EyeSight Driver Assist Technology for safe driving around every corner.
Interior features vary to ensure that families can emphasize the elements that truly matter to them. For example, the All-Weather Package includes heated front and second-row seats. Ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter handle, and second-row captain's chairs are just a few of the other cabin features shoppers can pick. Maximum cargo volume from the first row is 86 cubic feet, and behind the second-row cargo space is 47 cubic feet. That's plenty of room for anything from camping gear to groceries to everyone's favorite stuffed animals.
A broad range of convenience features come included on the Premium, Limited, and Touring trims. A power rear gate with height memory function, an auto-dimming rearview compass mirror, and
second-row climate control are just a few of the more notable ones. Transmission paddle shifters, 19 cup and bottle holders, and a cargo-area underfloor storage tray come standard on the base trim as well.Infotainment ranges, but a few of the more exciting features include an 8-inch Multimedia Plus or Multimedia Navigation program, Harmon Kardon QuantumLogic Surround Sound audio system, and Starlink Safety and Security.
