Vehicle Profile: 2020 Subaru Ascent
The 2020 Ascent is the newest in a long line of tough and durable Subaru models. Introduced for the 2019 model year, the Ascent is Subaru’s entry into the crowded three-row SUV segment. The 2020 Subaru Ascent stands out from its competition with adventurous standard and optional features and the latest tech for a connected and entertaining drive.
For larger families, two rows just won’t cut it. But not everyone with two or more kids wants to drive a minivan. Enter the Subaru Ascent. With room for seven or eight depending on configuration, the Ascent can fit your entire clan easily with plenty of room to spare for groceries, luggage or gym bags.
The Ascent’s standard configuration seats eight, with two bench seats in the second and third rows. If you prefer a little more privacy and space in the second row, you can choose captain’s chairs for extra comfort and easier access to the third row. These are available on the mid-range Premium and Limited trims, and standard on the range-topping Touring model.
In addition to seating for the entire family, the 2020 Ascent can house up to 86.5 cubic feet of cargo with the second and third rows folded.
Ready for adventure
Subaru is famous for its off-road ready vehicles. The 2020 Ascent is no exception, with every trim level featuring the standard Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system, X-MODE, and a whopping 8.7 inches of ground clearance. The Ascent can also tow a small trailer, with a 5,000-pound towing capacity — the most ever for a Subaru vehicle. As with other Subaru vehicles, the Ascent can be fitted with a wide range of racking and other accessories, so you can bring your bike, kayak or even paddleboard along for the adventure.
Entertainment on the go
Road trips with kids can be taxing, so it’s vital to have enough entertainment to keep them quiet so you can focus on the road. Luckily, the 2020 Ascent has your back with Wi-Fi capability on Premium, Limited and Touring trims, plus eight USB ports available on top-level models. You can also add the STARLINK® Entertainment Anywhere package to any trim level. This package includes two Apple iPad® 32GB Wi-Fi models, two Harman Kardon® Bluetooth® headphones and two Otterbox® Defender Series iPad® cases.
Even if you don’t opt for Wi-Fi or the STARLINK Entertainment Anywhere package, you’ll get a standard STARLINK® 6.5-inch (Ascent) or 8-inch (Premium and Limited) Multimedia Plus with Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, Pandora® and Aha™ smartphone app integration and more. The Touring model adds navigation and a Harman Kardon Quantum Surround Sound audio system.
The 2020 Subaru Ascent is ideal for any family who doesn’t want to conform to society’s expectations. Explore the Ascent today at your Subaru dealership.
