What's New for the 2019 Subaru Ascent?

In 2019, the Ascent joins the Subaru family for the first time. The Ascent is a three-row SUV that's designed to replace the Subaru Tribeca. The Ascent, which holds up to eight passengers and has 19 cup holders throughout the cabin, is bigger and more powerful than the Tribeca. With a 196.8-inch length, it's also longer than several other other vehicles in its mid-size SUV class, including the Toyota Highlander and the Honda Pilot. The Ascent, which is made in four trim levels, is outfitted with a variety of standard tech and safety features, including touchscreen navigation and a driver's assistance package. Along with standard amenities, drivers can choose from a variety of optional add-on features for a customized ride.
