New Subaru Ascent Takes The Brand To The Summit

Though naming car models is fraught with uncertainty, the new Subaru Ascent family-sized SUV is absolutely appropriately branded.

As the largest model ever offered by the indomitable left-field star player of the auto industry, the new 7 – 8 passenger $31,000 to $44,000 Ascent will carry Subaru to a new summit in the US market.

At 4,600 pounds the Ascent fits the Subaru less is more ethic while delivering big in style, comfort, value, driving satisfaction and industry leading safety.

On a winding rally through the wooded hills of Willamette Valley Oregon to dreamscape the Pacific Northwest beaches, the new Ascent demonstrates its trademark All-Wheel Drive prowess backed by the confident power of the standard new turbocharged intercooled 260 horsepower 2.4 liter Boxer 4 cylinder engine.

The new Ascent looks the part of the big daddy of the Subaru line, with a smooth muscular exterior, the familiar functional roof rails, contemporary front grille and backswept headlight design.

Inside the Ascent, Subaru LOVE is bundled with updated wifi and popular device interface options, and a certain quiet elegance punctuates the spacious and stylishly appointed cabin space.
