Vehicle Overview

Before the arrival of the Ascent, Subaru was known for spinning off SUVs as larger and more practical variants of its small and midsize sedans that straddled the line between the hatchback and station wagon bodystyles. The Ascent is different: a three-row midsize SUV that now enjoys the reputation of being the Japanese automaker's largest vehicle so far. The 2019 model year marks its very first, with base-level, Premium, Limited, and Touring trims available for purchase.

Sprucing up the vehicle at the Limited trim level are LED fog lights, turn-signal indicators on the side mirrors, a power liftgate with height memory function, and 20-inch dark-gray machine-finished alloy wheels.

The three-row 2019 Subaru Ascent can hold up to eight people-depending on what trim you get. On the Premium, you do have the option of exchanging the bench-style seat in the second row with a pair of captain's chairs to reduce maximum occupancy to seven, and these chairs are standard on the Touring. Overall, maximum passenger space is calculated at 153.5 cubic feet. Maximum standard cargo space is set at 19.6 cubic feet, with expansion to 47.5 cubic feet behind the second row and 86.5 cubic feet behind the front seating. Heated front seats, an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel appear on the Premium. Such accommodations are upgraded to a 10-way power-adjustable driver's seat with power lumbar support and 2-position memory function-as well as a 4-way power-adjustable front-passenger seat, leather seat trim, and a heated steering wheel-on the upper-level Limited and Touring.

Only the Touring has ventilation ability on the front seats and heating extended to the second row. For comfort and convenience, the Ascent begins with features such as tri-zone automatic climate control, AM/FM radio, a single-disc CD player, Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for smartphone integration, HD Radio™, Bluetooth® wireless technology for hands-free phone operation and audio streaming, a trial SiriusXM® satellite radio subscription, four USB ports (two at the front and two in the second row), six-speaker audio, Starlink™ infotainment integration with a 6.5-inch LCD touchscreen, and 19 cup and bottle holders. If you go with the Premium, you will also get a 4G LTE Wi-Fi capability for wireless Internet access, second-row climate controls, an auxiliary audio jack, and an 8-inch LCD touchscreen (in place of the 6.5-inch one). With the Limited, you will also get keyless access, push-button engine ignition, a garage-door opener, two more USB ports (for the third row), and auto-dimming ability on the rearview mirror, and the analog instrument display will be upgraded to an electroluminescent one. The Touring is the only trim that gets features like a panoramic power moonroof, a smart auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 14-speaker Harman Kardon® audio system, and 8-inch touchscreen navigation.

Providing a cushioned ride on the Ascent are a MacPherson strut front suspension and a double wishbone rear suspension. The SUV has a standard all-wheel-drive system for optimizing traction ability on slippery surfaces, and it uses electric power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering to achieve a turning circle of 36.1 cubic feet.

Powertrain - Subaru Ascent specs near Ferndale MI

The workhorse of the 2019 Subaru Ascent is a 2.4-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that outputs 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. It is mated to a continuously variable transmission for a smooth driving feel due to the lack of gear shifting. Accompanying the all-wheel drivetrain is X-MODE® technology to further strengthen the vehicle's capability of maintaining tire grip on the road. Go with the Premium or higher, and you will be able to tow up to 5,000 lbs., which is more than any other Subaru vehicle in history.

Safety Features - 2019 Subaru Ascent dealer

The 2019 Subaru Ascent comes with safety features like a rearview camera, electronic stability control, traction control, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, active torque vectoring, trailer stability assist, brake assist, brake override, daytime running lights, hill descent control, six airbags, a theft-deterrent system, and the EyeSight® driver assistance technology suite (which combines features such as pre-collision braking, throttle management, adaptive cruise control, and lane keep assist and sway warning). The Premium trim sees an upgrade with blind-spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, and Starlink™ Safety and Security for services such as automatic collision notification, roadside assistance, SOS emergency assistance, stolen vehicle locator, security alarm notifications, and remote locking and unlocking. Upgrading to either the Limited or Touring adds LED steering responsive headlight technology and reverse automatic braking. On the Touring, the rearview camera is replaced by a surround-view one.
