One of the best things about the new 2019 Subaru Ascent, abreast from the robustly safe new agent architecture, and the acclivity defying turbocharged engine, and the accepted all-wheel drive with 8.7 inches of arena clearance, and the ample class-competitive autogenous space, and so abounding added commendable things about this new family-sized 3-row SUV, is that you can get water- and stain-resistant bolt seats in aggregate with big wheels, captain’s chairs, and all of the adorable technology for below than $40,000.
Whew. I know. Continued sentence.
So here’s the accord with the new Ascent. Bodies who buy Subarus end up admiring Subarus. Except for the B9 Tribeca, the company’s aboriginal attack at architectonics a midsize 3-row crossover SUV. Bodies didn’t adulation that, and it died afterwards an undeservedly abhorrent run of about a decade.
Since the Tribeca ancient for that big junkyard in the sky, Subaru lovers who bare a bigger SUV, one with added burden amplitude and basement capacity, had annihilation aural the automaker’s calendar to which to advancement already they and their accretion families outgrew their Foresters and Outbacks.
With the new Ascent, that changes.
And Subaru knows that some bodies like bolt seats and don’t appetite to accord up all the adequate actuality in acclimation to get them.
Stretched like taffy and alloyed with added high-strength animate for its new assignment, the aforementioned all-around belvedere that serves as the abject for the accepted Subaru Crosstrek is tucked below the abundant beyond Ascent.
Into this architecture, Subaru bolts a brand-new, turbocharged and direct-injected 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine, boxer-style for a lower centermost of force and the adorable beef and beating that is a appropriate of such ability plants.
A new high-torque continuously capricious manual (CVT) distributes the 260 application and 277 lb.-ft. of torque to all four wheels, and Subaru says the Ascent climbs to 60 mph in 7.4 seconds. The company’s X-Mode absorption and a acropolis bank ascendancy arrangement is standard, too, authoritative it accessible to arise to places area few added crossover SUVs cartel travel.
Adventures generally booty abode in aerial regions, and Subaru acknowledges what the citizenry of Denver accept accepted for decades: turbocharged engines are about impervious to altitude. Properly equipped, the Ascent will tow 5,000 pounds of whatever you appetite to booty forth for a trip, and added cautiously acknowledgment to accepted bivouac adherence abetment technology.
According to the EPA, you can apprehend to get 22 mpg or 23 mpg in accumulated driving, with the added Limited and Touring trims bubbler added audibly from the gasoline well. A big 19.3-gallon ammunition catchbasin agency beneath stops for fuel, accouterment added than 500 afar of artery alive with the Abject and Premium versions of the Ascent.
As you may accept estimated at this point, the Ascent is accessible in Abject ($32,970), Premium ($35,170), Limited ($39,970), and Touring ($45,670) trim levels. All prices board a destination allegation to address it to your banker from the Indiana branch that builds them.
I spent a day in arctic Oregon with the affordable Premium trim, upgraded with the evidently alleged 7-Passenger Adventurous Package. This amalgamation installs second-row captain’s chairs, keyless admission with push-button alpha and PIN cipher entry, a ability rear liftgate, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a ambit and Homelink, about-face automated braking, a across-the-board sunroof, an upgraded Starlink infotainment arrangement with navigation, a burden cover, and yes, adventurous 20-inch wheels. The admirable absolute came to $39,430.
Yes, below than 40 admirable for the SUV you see in the photos. Value much?
Subaru says that Premium trim is the best accepted best beyond its accepted calendar of vehicles, but the aggregation expects best Ascent buyers to get the leather-lined Limited.
That ability prove true. But at my house, we like bolt seats. They’re acknowledgment in the summer, and warmer in the winter. And if they’re water- and stain-resistant, like the ones that appear in the Ascent Premium, we’re alike happier with ‘em.
Trouble is, aback you’re arcade for a agent in this segment, you charge frequently advancement to covering in acclimation to get the nice wheels, and the absolutely featured infotainment system, and all the disciplinarian abetment and blow abstention technologies. I know. I bought a midsize 3-row crossover in the summer of 2017.
And that, in part, is why I think the Ascent I collection in Oregon, with Premium trim and the Adventurous Package, is so impressive.
Aside from how Subaru caters to my own arbitrary tastes in vehicles, the Ascent represents an absorbing effort. From abundance and burden to controls and capability, this big Subie delivers.
Technically, you can actuality eight bodies into the Ascent. However, as is accurate of best 3-row crossover SUVs, six bodies are activity to be happiest unless the account are children. Small ones. We’re talking tiny.
And with 19 altered cup holders on board, there is no way that such a aggregate acquisition of bladders will outlive the Ascent’s artery alive range.
An 8-way ability driver’s bank is accepted for all but the abject trim. It is advanced and supportive, and I had no agitation accepting comfortable. Armrests are densely padded, the council caster is adorable to grip, and apparent afterimage is excellent.
Because Subarus are accepted in places area it generally snows, all but the abject Ascent board acrimonious advanced seats and a wiper de-icing system, while Limited and Touring add a acrimonious council caster and acrimonious outboard second-row seats. Desert and Deep South citizenry will like the aerial advanced seats in the Touring adaptation of the SUV.
You can’t get a advanced bank acme adjuster in the Ascent. I was activity to booty Subaru to assignment over this, but afterwards sitting in that area for a while it became accessible that one isn’t absolutely necessary. You sit up aerial abundant off the attic and with abundant thigh abutment that you won’t absence added vertical adjustment.
Subaru expects aloof 30 percent of Ascent buyers to get one with a second-row bank seat, which is accurately advised to authority three adolescent assurance seats across. That agency best Ascents will accept captain’s chairs, which are accepted with Touring trim.
My Premium trim analysis agent had them, and they’re comfortable, admitting the inboard armrests lie too low to be of abundant use to adults (kids will account them perfect). Subaru ability additionally appetite to add greater ambit of acclimation to aerate legroom for grown-ups aback cipher is benumbed in the third-row seat. The apartment are not awkward for taller people, but they aren’t generous, either.
Same goes for the third-row seat. I rode aback there for 20 miles, and with the second-row captain’s armchair set in a accommodation position that I would account adequate in agreement of beneath cruise comfort, I was able to clasp into the third-row, one leg mashed adamantine adjoin the seatback and one leg extending amid the captain’s chairs.
If third-row basement amplitude is alarmingly important to you, there are added choices in this articulation that are added accommodating. But really, you care to get a minivan.
Because Subaru installs three sets of seatbelts in the third row, it was adamantine for me to catch up. Alone the attenuated of waist (not me) should administer to ride in this location, and the beneath their legs are, the happier they’ll be. If annihilation else, aggressive in is about easy, in allotment because Subaru advisedly advised the roof pillars to acquiesce for a added admission and avenue portal.
Cargo amplitude measures up to 17.8 cubic-feet abaft the third-row seat, including an underfloor accumulator bin. Subaru says that it advised this amplitude to aerate rear-impact blast protection, putting as abundant ambit amid the third-row occupants and the bonanza as it could aural reasonable packaging constraints.
If you don’t charge the third-row seat, bend it to aggrandize burden accommodation to 47.5 cu.-ft. Best aggregate measures 86.5 cu.-ft. with both rows of seats bankrupt down. Agenda that if your Ascent is able with the across-the-board sunroof, it chews into these abstracts by bisected a cube.
Whatever doesn’t fit central can acceptable be absorbed to the Ascent’s abundant roof rails. And Subaru dealers action a advanced arrangement of crossbars and carriers and baskets and holders and racks to board assorted alive affairs requirements.
Subaru covers all bases aback it comes to conveniences and technology, too. The controls are presented in a simple, analytic blueprint with beatific accuracy of purpose, and if you can’t acquisition a nook, or cranny, or bin, or tray in which to backing something, you charge new eyeglasses.
Want to acclimatize the stereo volume? Twist a knob. Require a temperature change? Twist accession knob. Charge to advertence the aeronautics map? Push a button. Appetite to analysis altitude advanced on the route? Swipe the map with your finger. Don’t worry. Subaru makes it cool accessible to resume your accepted position.
A triple-zone automated altitude ascendancy arrangement is standard, which agency cipher should be accusatory about actuality too hot or cold. A Starlink infotainment arrangement is additionally standard, bartering a 6.5-inch display, HD and accessory radio, a accomplished agglomeration of anchored apps, and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
Starting with Premium trim, Starlink adds a beyond 8-inch affectation forth with accessory radio and hands-free argument messaging support. This adaptation offers a aeronautics advancement for Premium and Limited models, while Touring trim includes it as standard.
I had agitation with the aeronautics system’s articulation acceptance technology. Feeling sleepy, I asked it to absolute me to the abutting Starbucks in McMinnville, Oregon. Instead, the Ascent led me to a Walgreen’s biologic store. Maybe the Starbucks was in there, but I’ve never apparent one central of a biologic abundance before. Grocery store, yes.
After that, I asked it to artifice a avenue to my home abreast Los Angeles, but the Ascent could not, apparently, accept my Spanish-language artery name.
Then I requested admonition to our hotel, which it could not find. Granted, the auberge was new. But aback I approved to artlessly get a account of the abutting hotels in McMinnville, that accomplishment additionally bootless to aftermath after-effects of any kind. Adequate affair Apple CarPlay and Android Auto appear standard.
Charging accessories is accessible acknowledgment to advanced and second-row USB ports. Limited and Touring trim additionally accommodate them for the third-row seat. And if you install the Starlink Ball Anywhere Amalgamation ($970 for two 32GB iPads with cases and two sets of Harman Kardon Bluetooth headphones), and accumulate the Ascent’s accessible 4G LTE Wi-Fi account activated, at atomic a brace of the bodies aboard will be entertained.
Everyone abroad can accept to the 14-speaker Harman Kardon beleaguer complete arrangement that’s an advancement with Limited trim and accepted for the Ascent Touring.
Subaru is alike with safety. For decades, the automaker has advisedly alleged to accomplish absorption the lives of its barter a top priority. In fact, in accession to “quality” and “trust,” “safety” is one of the top three affidavit that car buyers about-face from accession cast to a Subaru.
Considering that the new Ascent is advised for families, you can bet the automaker has fabricated every engineering accomplishment to ensure that you, your apron or partner, your kids, and alike your pets can survive a collision.
Weighing a minimum of 4,430 pounds, the Ascent is able with a accepted EyeSight system. What’s that? Powered by bifold cameras army at the top of the windshield, EyeSight is a apartment of disciplinarian abetment technologies that can advice to anticipate an blow from occurring. It includes adaptive cruise control, a blow admonishing arrangement with banal detection, automated emergency braking, and three altered lane conduct abetment systems.
Oh, and if you’re decumbent to application your smartphone while cat-and-mouse for cartage lights to about-face green, a new affair alleged Lead Agent Alpha Alive will beep at you if EyeSight detects that cartage is already afresh on the move. So go ahead. Post photos of your admirable little kids to Facebook while sitting in traffic.
EyeSight works well. Back the technology debuted for the 2013 archetypal year, Subaru has upgraded the arrangement to abate apocryphal alarms and advance refinement, and has advance the technology throughout its archetypal ambit (except for the BRZ sports car). You can affairs capricious degrees of response, and alike about-face off the lane befitting abetment system, which I acquisition backbreaking because I feel like I’m angry adjoin the technology. New head-up indicators that affectation warnings on the windshield are useful.
Premium trim and aloft adds a aphotic atom ecology arrangement with rear cross-traffic alive and lane change assist, a must-have affection in my book. About-face automated braking is alternative for Premium and accepted for Limited and Touring. Automated high-beam abetment is included for Limited models, while Touring trim includes a 180-degree advanced camera appearance system.
Subaru additionally offers Starlink Assurance Plus and Security Plus account for the Ascent, on Premium trim and higher. The Assurance Plus cable is chargeless for three years, and includes important functions like automated blow notification, SOS emergency assistance, accessible admission to roadside assistance, and more. Security Plus is chargeless for six months, and, amid added functions, adds dispatch and alarm alerts, which is absolute for parents with teenaged drivers in the household.
Crash testing hadn’t been performed as this analysis was written, but Subaru expects the Ascent to excel in both NHTSA and Insurance Institute for Artery Assurance (IIHS) testing.
Given the company’s clue record, that’s a, umm, safe bet.
Turbocharging is a admirable thing. It adds a big, fat atom of torque appropriate area you appetite it best for accelerating assimilate a artery or casual slower vehicles. With Subaru’s new 2.4-liter 4-cylinder turbo, the 277 lb.-ft. of best torque is accessible from 2,000 to 4,800 rpm, abaft off aloof as the 260 application is extensive its aiguille at 5,500 rpm.
Normally, that 2,000-rpm adjournment up advanced would aftereffect in article alleged turbo lag. I didn’t absolutely apprehension it, though, conceivably because the point of a CVT is to continuously alter the transmission’s drive arrangement to aerate either ability or power.
In the Ascent, Subaru is application a new CVT architectonics for high-torque engines, and it appearance eight programmed ratios that accomplish dispatch complete and feel added like a acceptable automated transmission. If you appetite added ascendancy over the CVT, paddle shifters accommodate it, admitting the consistent accessory changes are rather unsatisfying.
Quick dispatch and acknowledging casual ability are hallmarks of the new boxer engine, and it emits a adorable beef and vibration, characteristics that I absolutely enjoy.
No amount the alive situation, the CVT drew little absorption to itself. In fact, for the aboriginal bisected an hour I was alive the Ascent, I absolutely forgot it had one. Under adamantine acceleration, the programmed “shifts” amid ratios acquainted a little bendable and dank instead of aciculate and decisive, but contrarily the transmission’s “CVT-ness” was absolutely imperceptible.
On the ambagious anchorage amid Oregon wine country and the coast, the Ascent handled appreciably well. The SUV’s abeyance is acquainted for acquiescence and a adequate ride, and the council feels too ablaze off-center, but the Ascent’s adamant agent architecture, low centermost of gravity, alive torque vectoring, and ample 20-inch aluminum auto accommodate it affluence of athleticism.
The anchor pedal is responsive, accessible to modulate, and adorable to use. I did agenda a adumbration of anchor achromatize (and cogent anchor smell) afterwards a activation run on a backwoods road, but neither affection abnormally impacted performance.
During an off-roading adventure at a bedrock quarry, the aggregate of X-Mode and 8.7 inches of arena approval accustomed the Ascent to clutter up a rock-strewn acropolis that you’d never accouterment in your own Subaru. Maybe a friend’s, or a busy one, but not your own. At one point, the Ascent got ashore while traversing a bend at an angle, but X-Mode automatically sorted aggregate out and as continued as I backward on the gas it extracted itself from the situation.
Driven through bendable bank on a windblown amplitude of Oregon beach, the X-Mode and AWD additionally performed beautifully, agronomics through the soft, close actual after affair that the SUV ability get stuck.
Fuel abridgement averaged 18.1 mpg over 140.7 afar of driving. That is able-bodied abbreviate of the EPA’s appraisal of 22 mpg.
However, you should accede this to be a worst-case scenario. My cardinal reflects abundant full-throttle dispatch runs, lots of dabbling during photography, biking beyond arresting countryside, casual of slower vehicles, gunning the agent through sand, and an off-roading excursion. No doubt, Ascent owners will see bigger results.
By now, you’ve ample out that I like the new 2019 Subaru Ascent. A lot. I ambition it had gone on auction aftermost summer instead of this one.
When my wife and I bought a new SUV about a year ago, we started with the account of IIHS “Top Assurance Picks.” Afterwards all, the alone acumen we absitively to get rid of our low-mileage, paid-for, still-reliable 2005 Nissan Murano was to accept a ancestors car with avant-garde assurance engineering and technology.
With that account as a starting point, we bare to acquisition one with all of the latest disciplinarian abetment and assurance systems, adequate advanced seats, a third-row seat, and agreeable alive dynamics. She would not accede annihilation that did not action a tan autogenous with white or aphotic dejected paint, and I capital the big adorned wheels. Both of us capital to buy article accumulated in the U.S., and neither of us capital a rear-seat ball system. Finally, bolt seats would be preferable.
It accepted absurd to amuse these requirements. We anguish up leasing an Acura MDX with the Technology Package, with which we accept a love/hate relationship.
This new Subaru Ascent, though, checks all of the boxes and, in Premium Adventurous Amalgamation specification, for ten admirable below than our Acura (more, actually, back our MDX doesn’t accept AWD).
Something tells me Subaru had bigger alpha an Indiana plant-expansion activity now. The planned 60,000 Ascents per year ability not be enough.
