Power and Safety Built into the Subaru Ascent

The Subaru continues to impress buyers. Now in its second year, the Subaru Ascent has earned high marks from owners and onlookers alike. The Ascent is the eight passengers Subaru SUV built for adventure, performance, comfort, reliability, and safety. Like other vehicles in the Subaru family, the Ascent comes standard with all-wheel drive for maximum traction in all kinds of weather and on all kinds of roads.

Performance

Subaru has included its famous BOXER engine to power the Ascent. The BOXER is a five-cylinder, turbocharged motor that produces up to 260 horsepower. It provides outstanding weight distribution because it is designed to be lower and wider than most motors. A lower center of gravity and more weight towards the wheels provide better stability and better handling. This gives the Ascent the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds.

Safety

With maximum highway mileage, the Ascent can stretch a tank of gas up to 500 miles, minimizing the highway stops on a long trip. XMODE suspension provides several features to keep the ride safe and comfortable. 8.7 inches of ground clearance makes this vehicle one of the top in its class, allowing for off-road adventures. Hill descent control automatically adjusts braking and speed while negotiating hilly terrain. Safety features include Subaru’s award-winning EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology, a suite of cameras and sensors to act as a second set of eyes.

On the inside, the Ascent has room for seven or eight people. A number of trim packages are available, including Premium, Limited and Touring. Optional second-row captain chairs make a long ride comfortable and make access to the third row of seats effortless. These seats are standard on the Touring package.

For modern convenience, up to eight USB ports are strategically placed throughout and Wi-fi hotspot availability is standard on several trim packages. To allow passengers to enjoy the scenery, a large, panoramic moon roof is available with tilt and retracting options.
