Subaru Ascent: A New Name in the Large SUV Segment

The Subaru Ascent is the newest model in the Subaru lineup and is easily recognizable as a direct response to Subaru's steady rise to the top of the family vehicle market. Long touted for its safety and reliability, Subaru has become a favorite among consumers in Manchester seeking an affordable and unique option for a safe and reliable vehicle.

Subaru is also revered for maintaining very high resale value and offering excellent warranties across the range. The Ascent is Subaru's first three-row SUV offering comfortable seating for eight passengers along with very respectable off-roading performance.

The Ascent sports a Subaru signature boxer engine that uses turbocharging and direct injection to produce over 260 horsepower. This uniquely designed engine gives the Ascent plenty of power to move you and your toys over tough roads as well as excellent fuel efficiency with great economy for long distances or for commuting in and around Iowa. The Ascent is capable of up to 27 miles per gallon on the highway, which is very competitive in its class.

The Ascent comes standard with symmetrical all-wheel-drive; the same trademark system that helped make Subaru a success. The Ascent also features the most suspension travel of any Subaru, with almost 9 inches of ground clearance. The standard high-strength steel frame not only helps the Ascent handle up to 5,000 lbs towing, but it also provides a smooth and quiet ride. With a powerful boxer engine, surefooted all-wheel-drive drivetrain, and off-road-ready ground clearance, the Subaru Ascent is definitely one of the most capable Subarus available today.


The Ascent is a groundbreaking Subaru not only because of it's immense off-road capability but also for its immense interior space. The Ascent is available in both 7-passenger and 8-passenger configurations, both offering up to 86.5 cubic feet of cargo space. Unlike some 7-passenger vehicles, the interior of the Ascent allows for ample cargo space even when fully loaded with passengers. The interior of the Ascent feels even larger when equipped with the available panoramic moonroof.

Both the front row and second row have elegant but functional appointments, including wood, leather, and brushed stainless steel. The touchscreen infotainment display is crisp and intuitive with controls for heating, cooling, and audio. The second-row passengers are greeted by an independent climate control center with dual high-speed USB charging ports.

The Ascent is also available with the Starlink Entertainment Anywhere package, which features dual 32gb Apple iPads equipped with Subaru exclusive Bluetooth headphones and mountable Otterbox protective cases. The interior of the Ascent is a welcoming environment for both passengers and drivers with thoughtfully placed and designed technology features.


The styling of the Subaru Ascent is muscular. The oversized headlights flanking the wide and imposing grille accent the heftiness of Subaru's largest SUV. The muscular lines follow through to the rear flowing seamlessly into the oversized taillamps and rear liftgate. The overall profile of the Ascent is upright, providing a commanding view of the road and allowing for optimal interior space.

The proportions of the Subaru Ascent are inline with other large SUVs in its segment. However, the sporty and muscular design gives the Ascent a profile that looks and feels sleeker. In the Ascent, you'll be in one of the sharpest SUVs in Lancaster, WI.


In true Subaru fashion, the Ascent features a full host of smart and functional safety and driver-assist features. The Subaru Eyesight driver assist system constantly monitors the road ahead and the other vehicles on the roads of Platteville, WI, in conjunction with the current vehicle dynamics. Eyesight helps drivers stay focused on the road, alerting drivers to slowing traffic and crossing obstacles as well as alerting and correcting course when the vehicle drifts from its current lane. The Ascent also features other active safety features such as rear obstacle detection and reverse automatic braking.
