Subaru has always come correct with its rugged, reliable but stylish vehicle line-ups. For 2019 Subaru upholds its reputation with the unveiling of the 2019 Ascent, Subaru’s new contender in the midsize sport utility vehicle market. The 2019 Subaru Ascent combines functionality with style and grace accompanied by a long list of standard features.

Subaru offers up the 2019 Ascent in three different trim levels. The base model chimes in around the low 30-thousand-dollar range and the fully equipped touring model will hit the mid 40-thousand-dollar mark

The 2019 Subaru Ascent is the first vehicle to use the automaker’s new 2.4-liter turbo flat-four boasting an estimated fuel consumption of 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.

The exterior is sporty with strong clean lines defining the nimble nature of this SUV. Subaru is known for its adventurous vehicles and this new addition to the stables does not disappoint. This SUV is designed for all sorts of driving conditions and is equipped to ensure the comfort of both driver and passengers no matter how tough the road may get.

The New Subaru Ascent rides like a well-trained thoroughbred with good acceleration and very manageable controls in turns and on rough winding roads. Subaru’s X-Mode manages power to the wheels to optimize traction on slippery terrain and helps with an over-all more confident feel on the road.

Inside the dashboard and controls for the driver are very nicely laid out and the seating is super comfortable. The third-row seating has good headroom and is easily accessible. Rear passengers have more usable floor area because there is no floor hump in the middle.

This Subaru can tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped. That’s the most of any Subaru vehicle, and a respectable rating for a midsize SUV.

Out back there is adequate storage space including a convenient cubbyhole to put that roll-up cargo cover when not being used.

If you are in the market for a mid-size three row SUV and are bored by the current marketplace, then the 2019 Subaru Ascent most certainly needs to be on your test drive list.
