The Subaru Ascent is powered by a brand-new engine, a 2.4L turbocharged flat 4-cylinder “boxer”. The new engine makes 260 horsepower, sending power to all four wheels via a CVT variable ratio transmission. The resulting powertrain cuts a good balance between acceleration and fuel economy, while allowing the Ascent to tow up to 5,000 lbs. Subaru estimates that the base level Ascent will get around 27 mpg on the highway.

Four different trim levels are offered for the Ascent including base, Premium, Limited and Touring. Base models come standard with 3-zone climate control, a 6.5-inch multimedia touchscreen, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay capabilities, four USB ports, automatic door locks and mirrors, roof rails, 18-inch wheels and 19 cup and bottle holders. Subaru’s EyeSight Safety Assist system is also standard, which includes emergency braking, and lane-keep assist systems.

Premium trim adds a power driver’s seat, unique cloth upholstery, an 8-inch touchscreen, Wi-Fi connectivity, body-colored side mirrors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, rear seat climate controls, heated mirrors and front seats and unique 18-inch wheels. Also included on the Premium trim are blind spot detection indicators and a rear cross-traffic alert system.

Comfortable interior; room for up to eight people; standard all-wheel drive; versatile storage options; almost 9 inches of ground clearance
