Accommodating 7 or 8 occupants depending on the model, the Ascent provides a much comfortable and spacious interior! Indeed, you will be able to store up to 504 litres of luggage behind the 3rd row of seats, and if you fold down the 2 last rows, you will then get 2,449 litres, which is more than many of its competitors. Heated seats in the 2 first rows, three-zone climate control, a power tailgate, an infotainment system with a display of 6.5 or 8 inches as well as navigation and pushbutton start are only a few of the features that you could find on board the Ascent. As you can see, it has nothing to envy the Honda Pilot! 

Under the hood, the Ascent hides an efficient 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine developing a thrust of 260 horsepower which, contrary to the 2018 Pilot, meets the low-emission standards. It is paired with a capable CVT gearbox and has a better highway fuel economy rating than the Pilot, namely 9.0 L/100 km. Even more, you will be able to tow a load varying between 907 and 2,268 kg, namely 2,000 to 5,000 lb. Lastly, just like with all Subaru vehicles and SUVs, you will enjoy the legendary Subaru Symmetrical Full-Time All-Wheel Drive system.
