The interior of the Subaru Ascent is remarkably roomy

2021 Subaru Ascent: Design

The Subaru Ascent makes a big impression right from the start, with its bold styling that includes 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. Of course, there's much more to the exterior design than just looks: it's also equipped with capable features. Standard LED Steering Responsive Headlights provide superior visibility, even when you take corners in the dark, and the raised roof rails let you more easily take bicycles, kayaks, and other oversized gear along for the ride. For even more capability, add features like LED fog lights and a windshield wiper de-icer.

The impressive design of the 2021 Subaru Ascent continues to the interior, as well. With 153.5 cubic feet of passenger volume, the Ascent gives you and your passengers ample room to sit comfortably. And, with up to 86.5 cubic feet of cargo volume, you'll be able to bring plenty of cargo. The second and third rows of seating both have 60/40-split flat-folding seatbacks to make the interior even easier to configure.

Stay safe on slick roads with the Subaru Ascent

2021 Subaru Ascent: Safety

The 2021 Subaru Ascent has already achieved recognition for its safety. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the 2021 Ascent a perfect five-star overall safety rating, as well as five-star ratings for the frontal and side crash categories. In addition, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the 2021 Subaru Ascent its highest honor: the 2020 Top Safety Pick+ award.

One of the things that sets the Subaru Ascent apart from its rivals when it comes to safety is standard all-wheel drive. Most other SUVs in its segment offer all-wheel drive as an available upgrade, but that's not the case with Subaru. Even the entry-level Ascent is equipped with Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, which provides exceptional traction. Whether you're driving down snowy Salt Lake City streets in the winter or exploring the great outdoors in summertime, this AWD system helps you stay in control of your Subaru Ascent.

Driver assistance technology helps you get safely to your destination

2021 Subaru Ascent: Driver Assistance Technology

You might know Subaru EyeSight® as a suite of driver assistance features that make Subaru vehicles among the safest on the road. For 2021, EyeSight® is even better. As in previous years, it features pre-collision braking and lane departure/sway warning. Earlier EyeSight® included adaptive cruise control, but that's been upgraded in the 2021 Ascent. Now, EyeSight® includes advanced adaptive cruise control with lane centering! This can help with not just braking, but also steering and throttle control. This suite of driver assistance features is standard on even the entry-level 2021 Subaru Ascent.

The Subaru Ascent allows for powerful performance, including up to 5,000 pounds of towing

2021 Subaru Ascent: Performance

The 2021 Ascent is equipped with a turbocharged SUBARU BOXER® engine that's powerful and efficient. It generates 260 horsepower and 277 pound-feet of torque, and it allows the Subaru Ascent to tow up to 5,000 pounds. Despite this power, the Ascent can still get up to 27 miles per gallon! The Lineartronic® CVT automatic transmission provides smooth and efficient shifting, while the 4-wheel independent raised suspension makes the drive itself smooth, both on and off the road.

It's true that most of your driving will probably be on the road--but this is Utah, and there are countless places to explore that take you off the beaten track. Whether you're navigating tricky off-road trails or just following a bumpy dirt road, the Subaru Ascent is equipped with standard features to make this easier. X-MODE® is a system that optimizes engine output and transmission ratio to provide better traction on slick surfaces by reducing individual wheelspin, and Hill Descent Control helps you maintain a consistent speed when going down steep hills. Add in the standard Vehicle Dynamics Control and Traction Control System and you have an SUV that's ready for all kinds of adventure.
