2019 Subaru Ascent OVERVIEW

The 2019 Subaru Ascent brings the brand back into the three-row crossover party. Featuring Subaru’s adventure-ready styling, the Indiana-built Ascent is larger than anything it has sold here before and is even longer than some of its key competitors.

What's new for 2019

The 2019 Ascent is all new and joins a fresh Subaru lineup.

The Ascent comes in four trim levels; base, Premium, Limited, and Touring.

In keeping with Subaru tradition, all-wheel drive is standard as is a boxer-style engine. The all-new turbocharged 2.4-liter four-cylinder develops 260 horsepower and 277 foot-pound of torque from 2,000 to 4,800 RPM. It comes mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) with eight preset ratios to step through with the paddle shifters. While there are no powertrain options, towing capacity is increased from the base trim’s 2,000 pounds to 5,000 lbs on the other trims.

Base and Premium trims that feature 18-inch wheels have earned an EPA-estimated 21 miles per gallon city, 27 mpg highway, and 23 combined. On trims with 20-inch wheels (and the load from added features), the EPA’s numbers fall one point in each category, although they're still among the best in class.


The base Ascent starts at $32,970 (all prices include the $975 destination charge) and features Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology, which includes adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, a head-up display, automatic emergency braking, and pre-collision throttle management. Also standard are aluminum wheels, roof rails, three-zone climate control, and a 6.5-inch multimedia touch-screen featuring SiriusXM, HD Radio, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Subaru notes that there are 19 cup holders, although no rationale behind that number was immediately available.


The Premium trim starts at $35,170 and adds safety technology such as blind-spot monitoring. A larger, eight-inch multimedia screen, Subaru StarLink telecommunication service, 4G WiFi connectivity, stain-resistant cloth front seats, and leather-wrapped shifter and steering wheel are also standard equipment.

The Convenience Package ($1,460) allows buyers to choose between the standard second-row bench or second-row captain's chairs (brings seating down to seven). It also adds niceties like a power tailgate, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a reverse automatic emergency braking system. Those looking for even more features can instead consider the Sporty Package ($4,260), which includes everything in the Convenience Package, 20-inch wheels, a panoramic sunroof, and navigation.


The starting price for the Limited trim is $39,970. Standard features include 20-inch wheels, leather seating, a heated steering wheel, active LED headlights with high-beam assist, LED fog lights, two additional USB ports, mirror-mounted turn indicators, second-row sun screens, and all the features from the Premium's Convenience Package. Choosing second-row captain's chairs is a no-cost option. The Technology Package ($2,950) adds a Harman Kardon audio system, a panoramic moonroof, and navigation.


The top-of-the-line Touring trim starts at $45,670 and is only available as a seven-seater. It builds on the Limited and adds premium exterior details such as satin silver painted mirrors and chrome trim pieces and rain-sensing windshield wipers. The interior features premium leather on the steering wheel, ventilated front seats, exclusive brown-colored leather seating, a panoramic sunroof, and a matte-surface interior trim. On the technology end, a forward-facing 180-degree camera, a rearview camera on the rearview mirror, navigation, and premium stereo are standard. There are no packages available.

CarsDirect Tip

The 2019 Subaru Ascent deserves plenty of attention in the already crowded segment. While each trim presents value, the Premium trim with the Convenience Package brings the latest safety technology and modern amenities at a very competitive price.
