Vehicle Overview

The Subaru Ascent is a midsize three-row crossover, and while it is not a wagon, it certainly draws inspiration from the wagon form that Subaru has made so iconic. The Ascent is a relatively new nameplate for Subaru having been introduced for the 2019 model year. But Subaru made a number of improvements last model year and is doing so again with the 2021 Subaru Ascent. The automaker has added even more standard and optional driver aids. It has made automatic high beams standard-auto headlamps already were-and upgraded the headlamps to adaptive and LED, and at the top of the lineup, it has introduced a new leather upholstery option: Slate Black with silver accent stitching.
