First Drive

A turbocharged competitor to the all-wheel-drive, seven-passenger throne

The brand-new 2019 Subaru Ascent could very well be called the Mulligan. You may have heard the term used by amateur golfers as a sort of do-over for an egregiously bad first shot. But in the case of the Ascent, Subaru's largest-ever vehicle, it means that the Japanese automaker gets one more chance to build a successful three-row crossover for America.


It arrives at showrooms in June and starts at $32,970

Subaru began production Monday of the new Ascent, its much-anticipated three-row crossover, at its plant in Lafayette, Ind. It's set to arrive at dealers in June as a 2019 model and will start at $32,970, including shipping.


Next up is the Ascent, which hits showrooms in June

See how the newest Subaru compares to its top-selling three-row SUV rivals

We've finally had our first drive of the 2019 Subaru Ascent and found it to be well-equipped for sales success. It's similar in many ways to its competitors, but since it's a Subaru, it should come as no surprise that there are plenty of unique elements as well. A turbo four-cylinder! It's a boxer engine, too! All-wheel-drive only! It totally looks like a giant Outback!


The Indiana-built three-row SUV will be offered in base, Premium, Limited and Touring trims

Standard equipment includes 18-inch alloy wheels, tri-zone climate control, EyeSight accident avoidance tech, four USB ports, and Subaru's 6.5-inch Starlink touchscreen that brings with it Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
