Performance Specs & Capability

Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive comes standard on the Subaru Ascent. The drivetrain's Traction Control System and Vehicle Dynamics Control helps you have a safe and stable drive, even when you're traveling on slick roads.

Under the hood, it's powered by a 2.4L 4-cylinder SUBARU BOXER® engine that gets up to 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain is paired with a versatile Lineartronic® High-Torque Continuously Variable Transmission (HCVT). This results in the Subaru Ascent being able to get up to an EPA-estimated 21 MPG city and 27 MPG highway.

It's also prepared to help you navigate bumps in the road. With an 8.7-inch ground clearance, you can confidently tackle big potholes, drive through streams, conquer trails, and climb steep hills. Feel free to strap some extra cargo to the back, too. The Ascent has a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds and can keep your trailer or boat under control with Trailer Stability Assist.  

2020 Subaru Ascent: Safety Features

On top of its standard all-wheel drive, the Subaru Ascent keeps you safe with seven airbags. There are driver's knee airbags, seat-mounted front side airbags, dual stage front airbags, and side-curtain airbags that cover all three rows of seats.

There's also lots of technology to help prevent accidents before they occur. For example, when you're backing up, the dashboard monitor switches its display from your infotainment system to what the Rear-Vision Camera sees behind you. You can also count on the EyeSight® Driver Assist Technology system to give you more awareness. It watches out for you during your drive with features like:

  • Pre-Collision Braking
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Lane Departure and Sway Warning with Lane Keep Assist
  • Pre-Collision Throttle Management
