Subaru’s new three-row SUV has impressive all-around performance. The Ascent’s plush ride, functional interior, and slick power delivery helped lift it to success. It comes with a standard turbocharged four-cylinder engine that makes the SUV feels zippier and more satisfying than its numbers suggest. Getting into the Ascent's cabin is easy, thanks to its large doors and low step-in height. The controls are simple to use and the infotainment touch screen responds quickly to commands. All trim levels come with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. Standard equipment includes Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, a suite that includes forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, and adaptive cruise control. Blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear automatic braking are available. The Ascent is an extremely functional and comfortable vehicle that will appeal to many suburban families.
