The 2019 Subaru Ascent is a family-oriented three-row crossover SUV and the largest vehicle ever produced by the automaker. It will be on sale in the summer of 2018. When it hits dealers, the Ascent will be offered in Basic, Premium, Limited, and Touring trim levels.
Although the 2019 Subaru Ascent is a novelty for Subaru, its style is immediately recognizable. It borrows much of its exterior appearance from the Subaru Outback, including its wagon proportions and kink window closer to the rear roof pillar. The Ascent’s nose is decidedly bigger and bigger, with a larger and more vertical grille opening than the Outback. The trapezoidal grille is flanked by hawkish headlamps and LED lights on the top gaskets. On each Ascent, the Subaru EyeSight series of safety features include automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control and lane departure warning. In addition, all Ascent liners feature a touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The display measures 6.5 inches in the Ascent base but increases to 8.0 inches in Premium, Limited and Touring models. Scaling up the ladder adds comfort and convenience features such as a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, heated seats for the first two rows, and a Blind Spot Monitoring System with warning alert. rear transverse circulation. An automatic reverse brake system, an electric tailgate and a push-button start proximity key are available as an option on the Premium model, but standard on Limited and Touring models.
In addition, the Limited model features leather upholstery, LED headlamps and second-row retractable umbrellas, while premium Touring adds ventilated front seats, rain-sensing wipers, sunroof mirror panoramic. The navigation system and sunroof are also available as an option on Premium and Limited models.
The Ascent will sport an exclusive new Subaru turbo-4 paired with a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and a standard all-wheel drive. The turbocharged 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine is 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque and can tow up to 5,000 lbs of Premium trim levels or more. The CVT operates like a traditional automatic gearbox during heavy acceleration and simulates “gears” when pressed, but it is largely responsible for keeping the large fuel-efficient all-wheel-drive crossover. Initial fuel economy figures are not yet available.
Subaru announced that the Ascent will go on sale next summer with a starting price of approximately $ 35,000, and we anticipate full load versions will reach the $ 50,000 limit.
