2019 Subaru Ascent Review
There’s something decidedly adventurous about the Subaru brand. Its famous emblem alone is enough to evoke images of muddy trails and lakeside excursions. The 2019 Subaru Ascent embodies this reputation perfectly while still bringing ample comforts to the table.
If you’re looking for a spacious, adventure-ready new ride here in Pittsburgh, Wexford, and Butler, the Ascent has plenty to offer. Check out this review from the Baierl Automotive team to learn all about it.
2019 Subaru Ascent Interior
Subaru is well-known for its crossovers and sleek sedans; however, those with a big posse are going to need some extra seats. Ergo, the 2019 Subaru Ascent: A 3-row SUV suitable for eight passengers.
The base configuration of the Ascent features three-seat benches in both the second and third rows. In total, this creates 153.5 cubic feet of stretching room. Feel free to load up the kids, friends, or a trusted co-pilot—perhaps even some furry friends will want to join in on the fun!
If seating for seven is more than enough for your squad, you can swap that second-row bench for available captain’s chairs instead. These allow for a bit more personal space behind the cockpit along with easier access to the rear seating.
Subaru Ascent Engine Specs
Those second-row captain’s chairs are certainly comfortable, but the best seat in the house happens to be right behind the wheel. As a driver, you’ll find a special kind of thrill in controlling that 2.4L SUBAR BOXER® 4-cylinder engine. Turbocharging and intercooling pair, so this powertrain can produce 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. Don’t be afraid to rev that engine!
A powerful engine combines with standard Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive (AWD) to up your towing capacity to 5,000 pounds. The Ascent can easily pull a small fishing boat or pop-up camper on your next vacation.
You’ll have optimal stability even with a trailer attached thanks to features such as X-MODE®. It maximizes transmission ratios and AWD engagement to help keep you grounded on low friction terrain.
Safety with All the Bells & Whistles
It takes more than traction controls to stay out of scrapes on the road—especially on busy freeways or when roads are unfavorable. To combat this, the 2019 Ascent adds in standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology. This system includes:
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Pre-collision Braking
- Lane Departure and Sway Warning
- Lane Keep Assist
Features like these use sensors to read the roads around you. They can determine your following distances during cruise control and know if you drift out of your lane. Not only does EyeSight® send the driver safety warnings, but it can also apply corrective maneuvering to keep you safe.
