2019 Subaru Ascent
It looks actually better than I though. In a boring way. the character lines actually look OK to me.
Sure, it’s no Mazda CX-9, but it easily beats the Honda Pilot and the Toyota highlander in the looks department.
As well as the VW Atlas.
So I think it will do really, really well. It will attract more than the usual “Subaru crowd”.
Inside, it basically looks like a huge Impreza. Which is OK.
Again, nothing like the gorgeous CX-9 interior. But way nicer than the Atlas.
Expect, at least on this “Touring”version, for the horrible looking fake wood trim.
It didn’t look good 20/30 years ago and it still doesn’t today.
Especially in that weirdo relish color…
The “Touring” can have captain chairs in the back. (And the fake red plastic wood!)
This one has a more normal bench seat.
And no wood! And it doesn’t seem to be replaced by some fake metal trim either.
Which is much nicer…
Of course you can probably sleep inside.
Which is great for camping.
Power comes from a new 2.4 Liter Turbo with 260HP ( just a tiny bit more than the CX-9)
And a CVT. No V6.
