Subaru Ascent: Reliable

Subaru Forester

If you’re searching for a reliable car, you can’t beat a Subaru. 

And the Subaru Ascent is one of the most reliable Subaru offerings on the market. The Ascent is Subaru’s largest vehicle, a three-row SUV with more seating capacity and cargo space than the company’s other, sportier cars. 

If you’re familiar with Subaru vehicles, like the Subaru Forester or Crosstrek, then you know that they come standard with AWD, a turbocharged engine, and safety features that are second to none. 

The same can be found in the Ascent—plus a whole lot more. So let’s find out more about the roomy and reliable Subaru Ascent. 

An Overview

The Subaru Ascent is one of the most versatile and cost-effective SUVs on the market. 

First, let’s take a look at the Ascent’s engine capacities. Its four-cylinder engine is peppy and is specially tuned for stability and easy handling. 

But the real strengths lie in the Ascent’s family vehicle bona fides. It’s a roomy and spacious vehicle, with three-row seating that’s capable of accommodating eight passengers. 

The third row of seating is specially sized for children, which makes the Ascent a more reliable family car than the Subaru Crosstrek or Forester. The presence of air vents in each row, plus the strategic spacing of 19 cup holders throughout the vehicle, makes comfort a priority. 

More Cargo Space Than a Subaru Forester

Another important feature of the Ascent is its sizable cargo space. 

The back cargo capacity amounts to 17.8 cubic feet, and this increases to an impressive 47.5 cubic feet by folding the third row of seating. So there’s plenty of room to stretch out and to carry as much cargo as you need.

Interior Tech

As with most SUVs these days, the Subaru Ascent comes equipped with the latest in infotainment and other interior technology. 

For instance, the entry-level Ascent features a 6.5-inch touchscreen, and other models come with an 8-inch touchscreen. Of course, this includes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. But there’s also navigation cameras that come standard in all models, so you can maneuver the Ascent with ease. 

These days, phones are practically indispensable. So having USB connectivity ports in the first and second rows, and even in the third row for certain models, is an attractive feature. And in addition to all that, the Ascent comes standard with a six-speaker audio system. 


The Subaru Ascent is without question one of the most reliable Subaru vehicles on the market. 

This is underscored by the fact that the Ascent has garnered the 2021 Top Safety Pick+ designation from the IIHS. Among the safety features included are lane keep assist, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning, and even automatic emergency braking.
