Subaru has priced up the 2019 Ascent, its hotly-anticipated return to the 3-row SUV segment. Billed as the largest Subaru ever, the family SUV can be had in seven or eight passenger versions, all of which come with all-wheel drive as standard, just like the automaker’s other cars.
Unveiled back in November 2017, the Ascent was Subaru’s tentative return to the 3-row segment. Its predecessor, the Subaru Tribeca, was axed in 2012, having been derided as one of the worst cars in America at the time. Since then, of course, SUVs have taken off and models with a third row are big business for families looking to carry all their kids, pets, and cargo.
From that perspective, there’s plenty to like about the 2019 Ascent. It can be had with either a bench seat in the second row, for a total of eight people inside, or captain’s chairs, for a maximum of seven. Build on Subaru’s Global Platform, only with an extension to take the wheelbase to almost 114 inches, it has up to 153.5 cubic feet of passenger volume, and up to 86.5 cubic feet of cargo space.
