Subaru Ascent. The biggest Subaru ever.

The Ascent is built for your biggest family adventures, with three rows of flexible seating for seven or eight passengers, standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, and up to 5,000 pounds of towing capacity. Standard EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology gives you an extra set of eyes on the road and the confidence that your family is safe and protected. Its state-of the-art safety is recognized by the experts: The Ascent is a 2020 IIHS Top Safety Pick with Steering Responsive Headlights. 

Built to Last

The Ascent is well-built in the U.S.A. for long-lasting quality. And with 97% of Subaru vehicles sold in the last 10 years still on the road today, you can count on it being part of your family for all the adventures ahead. That legendary reliability is one reason why Subaru is Kelley Blue Book's Most Trusted Brand for six years running.

Spacious, Comfortable Interior for 7 or 8 Passengers 

The Ascent gives you the option of second-row bench seating for up to eight or available captain's chairs with space for seven. With up to 153.5 cubic feet of passenger volume, extra-wide rear door openings, and ample cargo space plus underfloor storage, there's room for every passenger and all their gear. 

Standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive and up to 27 MPG**

Designed for optimal balance and an even distribution of power for maximum traction, standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive makes for exceptional stability, impressive efficiency, and a quick response to driving conditions.

The standard direct-injection turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine combines the power of turbocharging and the efficiency of direct injection to deliver 260 horsepower. With over 500 miles of highway driving range, almost any destination is within reach. 

EyeSight has been found to reduce the rate of rear-end crashes with injuries by up to 85%.

EyeSight monitors traffic movement, optimizes cruise control, and warns you when you're swaying outside your lane. The automatic Pre-Collision Braking feature can even apply full braking force and bring you to a complete stop in emergency situations. It's just one of the reasons why the 2020 Ascent received the highest possible rating for front crash prevention from IIHS.

What's New With the 2022 Subaru Ascent?

The Ascent is the latest model to join the Subaru lineup, and that happened just a few years ago, so there hasn't yet been a demand for a full-on redesign, or even a major overhaul with features, tech and styling. Still, the 2022 Ascent gets a brand-new Onyx Edition, which is mostly for stylistic alterations with special rims and blacked-out exterior trimming. Additionally, this new edition adds features like a rear power liftgate, a heated steering wheel and rear automatic emergency braking.

What's the Performance Like With the 2022 Subaru Ascent?

All editions of the new 202 Ascent are powered by a turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder, producing 260 horsepower with 277 pound-feet of torque. The highlight, as with any new Subaru, is the standard all-wheel drive system, which not only saves you money you'd otherwise spend for that recommended feature, but also provides the necessary levels of traction and control that you absolutely need for traveling around Boston during rough spells of icy and snowy winter weather.

What Kinds of Features Are Found in the 2022 Subaru Ascent?

The Ascent is a unique Subaru, being the only three-row model in the lineup, and it has some exclusive features like 19 total cupholders that you won't find in any other SUV here in Belmont. But this is also a Subaru, which means you can expect easy to use infotainment touchscreen controls, smartphone integration and other tech.
