2019 Subaru Ascent in South Carolina is One of the Longest Crossovers Available

While the Tribeca, Subaru’s first foray into the crossover market, got a lukewarm reception, the automaker is now ready to waltz right back in with the 2019 Subaru Ascent near Hilton Head, SC. Subaru owners are very brand-loyal, and those with growing families will likely appreciate the 2019 Ascent. Read on to learn what this vehicle has to offer.


The Outside

There’s no denying that the Ascent is a big vehicle. It’s almost 197” long, making it one of the longest crossovers available. Despite its length, it’s properly proportioned, and it bears a striking resemblance to its smaller sibling, the Outback. Its sculptured curves make it more flashy and substantial than some of the other vehicles Subaru sells.

The Inside

The 2019 Ascent comes in four trims: the base model, Premium, the Limited, and Touring. It seats eight passengers, except in the Touring model, which seats seven due to its second-row captain’s chairs. The base model is surprisingly well-appointed; it comes with touches such as triple climate controls and 72.6 cubic feet of cargo room behind the second row of seats. As far as passenger volume is concerned, the 2019 model competes quite well with other three-row crossovers.


Available Features

Being a step up from the base model, the Premium Ascent includes spill- and stain-resistant upholstery, rear cross traffic alerts and blind spot monitoring, heated front seats and side mirrors, an 8” infotainment screen, and 4G LTE Wi-Fi. Options include push-button start, a power tailgate, a navigation system, 20” wheels, and a panoramic sunroof.

On the Limited trim, drivers get some of the above options as standard equipment. They also get automatic swiveling headlamps, leather seating, reverse auto braking, and additional USB inputs. At the top of the line, the Touring trim comes with specially-colored leather seats, upgraded interior trim, a better stereo system, and a smart rearview mirror.


Engines and Power

The 2019 Subaru Ascent near Hilton Head, SC is powered by a 2.4L four-cylinder engine that puts out 260hp. While that’s not as much as some of its competitors, Subaru claims that it can tow approximately 5000 pounds. While fuel economy numbers haven’t yet been released, it’s estimated that the 2019 Ascent can get roughly 500 miles on a tank of fuel. The engine is mated to a CVT that’s programmed to mimic an eight-speed.


Safety Features

Subaru has long had a reputation for safety, and the 2019 Ascent continues that trend. As it’s built on a slightly longer version of Subaru’s Global Platform, the Ascent is likely to perform admirably in crash testing. However, the standard EyeSight technology suite, with its auto emergency braking, smart cruise control, and other features. On higher trims, options such as rear cross traffic warnings and reverse auto braking keep drivers and passengers safe.

The 2019 Subaru Ascent near Hilton Head, SC has a lot to offer busy drivers and their families, and it should be at the top of any crossover shopper’s list. Visit the dealership to take a test drive, see it online, or call 888-430-0231 for further details.
