In April 2017, the new 2018 Subaru Ascent concept SUV made its worldwide debut at the New York International Auto Show. Praised for its spacious interior and family friendly capabilities, what stood out most in this 3-row SUV was its stylish design and impressive power. Let’s take a look at what makes this Subaru worth the wait.

Designed with the Family of the Future in Mind 

The 2018 Subaru Ascent proves that SUVs are no longer a passing trend, but a stylish, sporty addition for any family or for adventurers wanting to take their closest friends on the ultimate trip.

This family wagon features three rows of comfort for up to seven passengers. It takes its exterior and interior design framework from Subaru’s Global Platform – an upward improvement in durability and utility from their smaller-seated cousin, the Impreza.  It’s longer, and wider than any other Subaru, with a body size of 198.8 x 78.3 x 72.4 inches (LWH) and a 117″ wheelbase.

On the outside, the Ascent couldn’t look sleeker – with the “Dynamic x Solid” fender flares, a large grille, and streamlined headlights, the Ascent looks fast and fun.

Furthermore, expect more power and throttle with the all-new turbocharged DI Boxer Engine. The Subaru Ascent is predicted to carry a 4.0-liter engine, for more torque at a lower RPM. Without compromising power, expect a hybrid version to be available in 2018 for environmentally conscious families and explorers.

The 2018 Subaru Ascent will come fully loaded with the latest technology and safety features found in the Impreza, and a starting price around $35,000.
