The Subaru Ascent is the kind of SUV you can trust for a family road trip. It offers lots of room to stretch out, an efficient and capable performance, and lots of safety features. To show drivers and families in Parsippany, Wayne, and Morristown everything it has to offer, Paul Miller Subaru put this 2020 Subaru Ascent review together.

Interior Dimensions

The Subaru Ascent has room for the whole family with three rows of seats and 153.5 cubic feet of passenger space. With the standard second-row bench seat, there's room for up to eight people. You can also opt for a pair of captain's chairs in the middle. This feature gives you a convenient center aisle while still offering seating for up to seven people.

Both the second and third rows feature flat-folding seats to help you load lots of cargo. With both rows down, you'll have up to 86.5 cubic feet of storage space. Plus, an available Power Rear Gate makes it easy to start packing up.

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
