    2020 Subaru Ascent OVERVIEW

    Back for a second go-round, the 2020 Subaru Ascent continues as the brand's largest vehicle. This three-row crossover SUV features a spacious interior, a plethora of driver-assist safety technology, and a peppy 2.4-liter turbocharged engine. Available in seven or eight-passenger seating and four trims, consumers shopping for a mid-size utility vehicle will find the Ascent an alluring option.

    What's new for 2020

    The Subaru Ascent receives two minor enhancements in its second production year. All trims feature a Rear Seat Reminder alert system that helps to combat leaving a child or pet in the rear seat and a power liftgate lock.

    Choosing Your Subaru Ascent

    If flexibility in choosing seating and trim configurations is important to you, the Subaru Ascent should be on top of your list. This crossover offers nine unique configurations, with an available captain chair or 60/40-split second-row seating.

    Built on the Subaru Global Platform, the Ascent is powered by a 2.4-liter turbocharged BOXER engine that supplies 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque to the standard all-wheel drive via a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The setup achieves an EPA-estimated 21 miles per gallon city, 27 mpg highway, and 23 combined.

    The Ascent offers 86.5 cubic feet of cargo space, and comes with standard roof rails for loading bicycles, kayaks, and cargo. Like all Subarus, the Ascent is suitable for light off-road adventures. It features a ground clearance of 8.7-inches. With the inclusion of a four-wheel independent suspension system and Active Torque Vectoring, it delivers a rather smooth ride.

    The Ascent is available in four trims:


    The base Ascent begins at $33,005 (all prices include a $1,010 destination charge) and is a rather impressive entry crossover. It rides on 18-inch alloy wheels and includes Subaru’s EyeSight Driver Assist Technology suite of safety features, which includes lane departure warning, a head-up display, adaptive cruise control, and automatic emergency braking, It also includes an Auto Vehicle Hold system, which keeps the crossover in position while at a stop, removing the need to continually depress the brake.

    On the inside, consumers will enjoy the three-zone climate control system, and a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment system that includes HD Radio, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a SiriusXM subscription.

    There are no packages offered on the base Ascent.


    Upgrading to the Premium costs $35,405 to start and adds extra driver-assist features like blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane change assist. Additional standard features include a power driver seat, spill-repellent cloth upholstery, privacy glass, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and rear seat climate controls. The infotainment screen is enhanced to 8 inches.

    Two packages are offered, and each is available for the same price with a seven- or eight-passenger layout. The Convenience Package ($1,460) brings reverse automatic emergency braking, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a power rear liftgate, and keyless access. The Sporty Package ($4,260) brings the features from the Convenience Package and a moonroof, 20-inch wheels, a cargo area cover, and navigation.


    The penultimate Ascent is the Limited, which starts at $40,355. It's available with seven or eight-passenger seating and adds leather upholstery, adaptive LED headlights with high beam assist, LED fog lights, and 20-inch wheels. Additional enhancements include keyless entry with push-button start, two extra USB ports, a rear power liftgate, second-row sunshades, and chrome exterior accents.

    The Technology Package ($2,950) adds a 14-speaker Harmon Kardon audio system, a moonroof, navigation, and cargo area cover.


    The range-topping Ascent Touring costs $46,055 and is only available in a seven-passenger configuration. The Touring includes chrome exterior enhancements, a front under-guard, a rear bumper protector, and new power-folding exterior mirrors with integrated turn signals.

    On the inside, a moonroof, navigation, a 14-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, a surround-view camera system, unique upholstery, ventilated front seats, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a heated steering wheel, and eight USB ports come standard.

    There are no package upgrades with the Touring.

    CarsDirect Tip

    The flexibility to configure an Ascent to personal preferences is an exceptional benefit. Arguably the best attribute is that there are no charges for seven- or eight-passenger configurations. If you’re looking for the best bang for your buck, the 2020 Subaru Ascent Limited with the Technology Package is our leader in the clubhouse.
