Subaru Ascent Design & Space

The Subaru Ascent may technically be a midsize SUV, but it's not like many of its competitors that seem to toss a tiny, cramped third row in as an afterthought. The passenger volume of the 2020 Subaru Ascent is 153.5 cubic feet, giving passengers in all three rows plenty of room. Also unlike many other 3-row SUVs, the third row has seating for three rather than for two. This means that the entry-level Subaru Ascent has seating for up to eight people! Even if you choose to upgrade to second-row captain's chairs, you'll still have seating for up to seven.

There's plenty of room for cargo, as well. Both the second and third rows are 60/40-split folding seats, so you can configure the interior space to suit your needs. Fold down the second and third rows of seating and you'll get up to 86.5 cubic feet of cargo space! The 2020 Subaru Ascent also comes standard with roof rails, making it easy to carry oversized gear and extra cargo.

2020 Subaru Ascent Convenience & Tech Features

Your passengers will have plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the ride in the spacious cabin, but it's not space alone that makes it so convenient. Standard automatic climate control makes sure everyone is comfortable, while nineteen cup and bottle holders mean that everyone can find a place to put their drink. Available features like heated and ventilated front seats and heated second-row seats further increase your comfort.

You'll also be pleased at how technologically advanced the Subaru Ascent is. Its standard STARLINK® Multimedia Plus system comes with a 6.5-inch touchscreen, a six-speaker audio system, and smartphone app integration. Choosing the available STARLINK® Multimedia Navigation system to get navigation and an eight-inch touchscreen, and picking the Harman Kardon Quantum Surround Sound audio system provides fourteen speakers!

2020 Subaru Ascent Safety

Your family's safety is something Subaru takes very seriously. A family SUV like this one needs to be extra safe . . . and it is. The 2020 Subaru Ascent is so safe that it earned the 2019 Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. It's no wonder the Subaru Ascent earned this honor: it's designed with safety in mind. The standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive gives you extra traction, even on slick roads. And available features like LED Steering Responsive Headlights make the drive even safer.

2020 Subaru Ascent Driver Assist Technology

The best accident is the one that's avoided, which is why every 2020 Subaru Ascent comes with EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology. This suite of driver assist features has been shown to reduce rear-end collisions with injuries by up to 85%! For even more protection, consider adding available driver assist features. The Reverse Automatic Braking lowers the chance of accident as you back out of a parking spot, while High Beam Assist switches between high and low beams depending on traffic. The Blind-Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert helps you stay even safer as you drive down the road.

2020 Subaru Ascent Performance

The Subaru Ascent is lots of fun to drive. It's built on the Subaru Global Platform, which reduces vibration and noise during the drive. Combined with its four-wheel independent raised suspension, this creates a smooth, enjoyable drive. The BOXER® engine at the heart of the Subaru Ascent is impressively powerful, generating 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque. When properly equipped, it can tow up to 5,000 pounds, allowing you to take trailers or small boats along for the ride. Despite this power, the Subaru Ascent still gets up to 27 miles per gallon.
