A Potent Powertrain

Pop the hood of the 2023 Subaru Ascent and you'll find a 2.4L turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® 4-cylinder engine that proves to be impressively powerful. This base trim configuration not only produces 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque, but it’s also able to tow up to 5,000 pounds. Talk about versatility!

While the Ascent engine shows off its muscle, the elegant Lineartronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) works quietly behind the scenes. This transmission helps the car earn an EPA-estimated 20 city/26 highway MPG, proving the vehicle will work hard for your wallet.*

Space & Cargo

The Subaru Ascent continues to put on a master class in versatility with its interior space. Inside the airy cabin, you'll find 153.2 cubic feet of passenger volume, which is enough to seat up to eight passengers with third-row seating.

Headroom 41.2 inches 40.0 inches 36.2 inches
Legroom 42.2 inches 38.6 inches 31.7 inches
Shoulder room 61.1 inches 60.3 inches 57.0 inches

If you need additional space, the reclining 60/40-split flat-folding second- and third-row seatbacks will come in handy. Utilizing these will allow you to create up to 43.5 cubic feet and 75.6 cubic feet of cargo volume, respectively.

Transcendent Technology

The inside of the Ascent doesn’t just impress with space but also with its innovative technology. The interior is more like a rocket ship cockpit than a traditional car cabin. The SUBARU STARLINK® 11.6-inch Multimedia Plus with 6-speaker sound system will allow you to disconnect from your long day at work while remaining effortlessly connected to the outside world via Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

The vehicle also comes with a tri-zone climate control system that will help optimize in-cabin temperature for all four seasons.

Additionally, the Ascent comes with EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology. This suite comes with Pre-Collision Braking and Pre-Collision Throttle Management to help bring the vehicle to a halt should an unforeseen obstruction come into play.

The package also includes:

  • Lane Departure and Sway Warning
  • Advanced Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Centering
