Introducing the all-new 2019 Ascent.

Discover family adventure in three rows. With spacious, flexible seating for seven or eight, the Ascent is simply our biggest, most versatile SUV ever. But it’s a Subaru at its core. This means every Ascent is equipped with the proven capability of Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive. Plus, it’s the first Subaru vehicle to include EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology as a standard feature. And just like your family, the Ascent was built to endure. Of the Subarus sold in the last 10 years, 98% are still on the road today.

That front-row feeling in every row.

Space for seven or eight

The Ascent offers our roomiest interior yet, with 153.5 cubic feet of passenger space in three rows, plus two second-row seating options. Select second-row captain’s chairs to offer room for seven and increased access to the third row. Or, opt for second-row bench seating to make room for eight. Either way, your third-row passengers can easily hop in back through the wide rear door openings.

Comfort for all

Up front, heated and ventilated seats enhance personal comfort, while the cabin-view mirror lets you keep tabs on what’s happening in back. With three climate control zones, air vents in each row and heated second-row seats, comfort is tailored to the needs of all.

When in doubt, bring it anyway.

Flexible to family

The most versatile Subaru ever, the Ascent has up to nine unique seating configurations and two rows of 60/40-split flat-folding seats. You’ll even find versatility in the details—like the 19 cup and bottle holders throughout.

Cargo needs, met

The Ascent meets big needs with a vast interior, the largest you’ll find in a Subaru. You can gear up for any adventure with standard raised roof rails and up to 72.6 cubic feet of cargo space. And with a power rear gate, you can easily load up at the touch of a button.

Connected in every seat

Bring aboard all your devices and entertainment needs. The Ascent is ready, thanks to built-in Wi-Fi capability and up to eight USB ports.

Personalized experiences

Connect to all your music and apps through SUBARU STARLINK™ Multimedia, with standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android™ Auto integration—all easily accessed on either a 6.5 or 8.0-inch touchscreen.

Listening enjoyment

Give your playlist the treatment it deserves with the Harman Kardon® 14-speaker premium audio system—it’ll beam through with clarity.

Bright ideas everywhere you look.

Panoramic Moonroof

Bring in more fresh air from the available 54-inch power tilt/sliding panoramic moonroof — the largest Subaru has ever offered — to make the already impressive passenger space feel even more open and bright.

Integrated Roof Rails

As one of the only vehicles in its class with standard raised roof rails and offering an extensive line of racking accessories — from kayak and bike carriers to rooftop containers and more — the flexible 2019 Ascent lets you load a wide variety of cargo for all your family’s expeditions.

Thoughtfully designed storage solutions

Wherever you sit, you’ll find space for what you’re bringing, like the generous amount of storage in the center console or the many places to stow your devices or other electronics. We also gave the Ascent plenty of under-floor storage for all those “just in case” items.

8.7 Inches of Ground Clearance and X-MODE®

Conquer rough terrain with 8.7 inches of ground clearance and standard X-MODE®, which optimizes the Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive system for maximum traction on slippery surfaces. X-MODE® also incorporates Hill Descent Control for stability and confidence when descending more difficult grades.

5,000-Pound Towing Capacity

The 2019 Ascent offers the most towing capacity of any Subaru vehicle ever, along with an available Class III trailer hitch and wide selection of Thule racking accessories so you can bring along all the gear you’ll need for all the places you’ll be able to go.

High-Strength Steel Body Structure

The 2019 Ascent is built on the Subaru Global Platform using extensive high-strength steel. With great durability, rigidity and vibration resistance, the Ascent platform is designed to provide a quiet interior and excellent driving feel now and for years to come.
