2020 Subaru Ascent Review

Overview
The Subaru Ascent isn’t just any three-row SUV. This is an SUV built for the long haul. In fact 97 percent of all Subaru vehicles sold in the last ten years are still on the road. Choose from four models starting with the Ascent and moving through the Ascent Touring. Up to nine seating configurations and up to 86.5 cubic feet of cargo space mean the Ascent is the biggest most versatile Subaru yet. The turbocharged 2.4-liter SUBARU BOXER engine provides plenty of power. And with Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and 8.7 inches of ground clearance you can expand your horizons—literally. And wherever you go you’ll stay connected and protected. SUBARU STARLINK Multimedia Plus brings Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration to a touchscreen display and EyeSight Driver Assist Technology adds confidence to every drive. Choose from a variety of colors options and accessories and build an Ascent that’s all yours. The Subaru Ascent. Make your family memories come true.
Technology
The Subaru Ascent is loaded with technology. SUBARU STARLINK Multimedia Plus keeps you connected. Need to make a phone call? Want to hear something on your playlist? Need to get directions? Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard and TomTom-Powered Navigation is available. Wondering if you left your doors unlocked? Available SUBARU STARLINK Safety and Security and the MySubaru Mobile App turn your smartphone into a remote control for your Ascent. Lock and unlock doors find your car and more. The Subaru Ascent. Love means never having to disconnect no matter where you are.
Safety
Subaru Eyesight Driver Assist Technology helps every Subaru Ascent keep you safer. EyeSight is an innovative suite of features like Adaptive Cruise Control Pre-Collision Braking and Lane Departure and Sway Warning with Lane Keep Assist. It’s like having an extra set of eyes on the road—and an extra set of feet on the brakes. And if an accident’s unavoidable your Ascent’s supplemental restraint system holds you in place and surrounds you with inflatable protection while available SUBARU STARLINK Safety and Security6 notifies first responders. The Subaru Ascent. Love the safety.
Performance
Expand your horizons—literally—in a Subaru Ascent. 260 horsepower from a 2.4-liter Direct-Injection SUBARU BOXER engine will get you there. And it can tow up to five thousand pounds so you’ll get your toys there too. If your journey involves beaten paths Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive has you covered no matter what the weather’s doing. And if your journey involves getting off those beaten paths you’re still covered—you’ve got 8.7 inches of ground clearance and X-MODE with Hill Descent Control. The Subaru Ascent. Get out there and make some memories.
