Interior & Cargo Space

This midsize three-row SUV seats seven (with optional captain's chairs in the second row) or eight people (with standard three rows). Overall passenger space is very generous. The driver's seat offers a clear view and excellent support. The Ascent cabin is well-built and made out of high-quality materials.

The Ascent's audio and climate controls are well laid out. The SUV comes equipped with an intuitive infotainment system with straightforward and easy-to-use buttons. It comes with smartphone integration via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and provides multiple USB ports.

Optional technical upgrades include a larger eight-inch touch screen, a Harman Kardon premium sound system, and navigation.

The Ascent offers functional cargo space that's perfect for every adventure in Palm Desert. Behind the third row, there are 17.8 cubic-feet, 47.5 cubic-feet with a folded-down third row, and a total of 86.5 cubic-feet when all of the back rows are folded down.


The Ascent has a 2.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder 260-horsepower engine combined with an automatic transmission. It is a small engine for a midsize SUV but provides plenty of power. The Ascent achieves excellent fuel economy. It gets an EPA-estimated 21 miles-per-gallon in the city and 27 miles-per-gallon on the highway. This is particularly impressive given that the SUV is also equipped with all-wheel-drive.

The SUV offers composed and agile handling, responsive steering, strong brakes, and a smooth, comfortable ride through Indio. The base trim can tow up to a maximum of 2,000-pounds, and all of the other trims are able to tow up to 5,000-pounds.


Subaru's EyeSight driver-assist package comes standard with every Ascent. It comes with head-up display, lane sway and departure warning, adaptive cruise control, pre-collision throttle management, and forward auto emergency braking. A rear-seat reminder and a rearview camera come standard as well.

Available safety features include a front-view camera, rear-vision mirror camera, rain-sensing windshield wipers, lane change assist, rear cross-traffic alert, reverse auto emergency braking, and blind-spot monitoring.
