The 2020 Ascent is Built to Last!

The 2020 Subaru Ascent is an 8-passenger crossover that is set to redefine the SUV class.

2020 Subaru Ascent

In the midst of the SUV revolution that has overtaken the automotive world in recent years, the demand for SUV's of all stripes and configurations has never been higher. The largest vehicles in this category, the 3-row family-sized titans, have filled an important niche for drivers that have a daily need to move many passengers and their cargo. Subaru, a manufacturer known for its reliable and safety-oriented designs, was a late-starter in this category. Thankfully, it appears the wait was well worth it.

Powered by a 2.4-liter turbocharged flat-4 engine, the Ascent is driven by 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque, mated to a continuously variable transmission linked to a standard all-wheel drive. Combined with 27 miles per gallon on the highway, the 2020 Ascent has the ability to haul everything you need while still limiting the trips to the pump.

In keeping with Subaru's commitment to safety, the base Ascent is equipped with top-notch safety features. Known collectively as the EyeSight Driver Assist package, this safety suite includes forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warnings, adaptive cruise control, and a backup camera. Other available safety options include blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert, as well as a front parking camera and enhanced backup camera.

Aside from safety tech, the Ascent is also filled to the brim with amenities and creature comforts, including available heated front seats, second-row captain's chairs, in-car Wifi, a power liftgate, proximity entry, and push-button start, to name just a few.

While it may have been a little late to the party, the 2020 Ascent is a welcome addition to the field of 3-row crossovers and is exactly the kind of entry we would expect to see from Subaru. If you are interested in viewing an Ascent, or simply want to peruse Subaru models, we invite you to visit our showroom at 1257 Hylan Boulevard in Staten Island.
