2019 Subaru Ascent near Beaufort, SC: 3-Row Crossover Coming Summer 2019

The Ascent isn’t Subaru’s first foray into the three-row crossover market; that distinction goes to the Tribeca, which is no longer in production. The 2019 Subaru Ascent near Beaufort, SC is a full-featured mid-size SUV with the specs needed to compete with the most popular vehicles in the segment. Read on to learn more about the new Ascent.


A Roomy Cabin

While the Subaru Ascent has a bit more cargo area behind the third-row seats and is slightly longer than its competitor the Honda Pilot, passengers will find all three rows quite roomy and comfortable. Eight-passenger capacity and a second-row bench seat are standard, and second-row captain’s chairs are an available option on all Ascents but the base model. The captain’s chairs reduce seating capacity, but the easier route to the third row will be beneficial to families with small children.

Other interior features on the 2019 Ascent include an astounding 19 cup and bottle holders, up to eight USB inputs, a smart rearview mirror, and more. Heated seating is available rear and front, and drivers can get extended thigh support as well as lumbar support. Heated steering wheels and vented front seats are also available.


An All-New Engine and a Revamped Transmission

The 2019 Ascent gets its power from a new 2.4L turbo four-cylinder boxer engine, which is a common feature in many of Subaru’s vehicles. The engine is mated to a revised version of the automaker’s CVT (continuously variable transmission). From that combo, power is routed to all four wheels via a symmetrical AWD system and torque vectoring. While the engine and transmission combo isn’t the fastest thing on the road, it’s more than powerful enough for daily use. It puts out 260hp and 277 lb. ft. of torque, which will be sufficient for most drivers. Towing capacity is rated at up to 5000 pounds, and the optional trailer stability assist system uses yaw sensors and individual wheel braking decreases trailer sway.


A Comprehensive Tech Suite

Like most of today’s new vehicles, the 2019 Subaru Ascent near Beaufort, SC is loaded with advanced convenience, safety, and comfort technologies. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard on all models, and in-car Wi-Fi is available. The new Ascent is the first of the automaker’s models to have the EyeSight system as a standard feature; it now comes with a heads-up display.

The range of driver assistance tech includes adaptive cruise control, auto braking, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and lane change assist. Optional high beam assist and steering responsive headlights offer enhanced illumination, while reverse auto braking can stop the Ascent in the event of an obstacle in the rear. Finally, the StarLink suite includes remote lock and unlock, remote start, vehicle location and other emergency assistance features. Parents of teen drivers will value the speed alert, curfew, and geofencing functions.
